    Hiya

    Chewing gum is one of those things that you may need to take care with, firstly chewing stimulates the gastric juices in your stomach so it then expects food and this can make you feel hungry, but if you already chew gum to avoid that hopefully it won't be a problem.

    There is a slim chance it could knock you out of ketosis as well, if you're very sensitive, but I know a lot of people do use gum and are ok.

    If it's ketosis breath you're worried about, a mouth spray or those fresh strips are a better bet.

    ive chewed gum throughout my whole diet....there are times (especialy early on) when I would have chewed a lot more than gum if I hadnt popped a piece in my mouth. The minty taste stops your cravings and helps freshen your breath. Dosnt seem to have affected my ketosis...

    I use gum all the time as i always have done and it was one of those things that i would have struggled without. I use sugarfree gum - atm im particularly addicted to Tridents at the moment :D

    Mmmmm my favourite is the strawberry and Lime which still to this day i think sounds like a horrible combination. I have the odd peppermint ones now and again but i Love the S&L mmmmm.

    I have tried them ones Peach and Raspberry - i like them as well yummy!

    Have you seen the "tubs" they do that hold 40 and they are little round things - perfect for my desk at work, car and at home lol.

    Im well and truly addicted to gum - wouldnt have it any other way....
