    Hi Mich, the general guidelines are that you shouldn't as it promotes hunger because it gets your gastric juices flowing and your stomach gets all prepared for food which of course doesn't arrive :) ,
    however chewing sugarfree gum won't affect your diet adversely as far as putting on weight/coming out of ketosis etc so if you can chew it and not feel too hungry then I wouldn't worry too much about it.
