    My husband winds me up constantly about my donkey breath.

    It's the worst part of it for me (except the pooing situation which is ok so far).

    I have a mouth spray, brush my teeth lots and use mouth wash, but does anyone find chewing gum makes them hungry? I want to try it but not if it's going to make me reach for the pizza.

    Also, do your teeth feel furry?

    Bleugh!

    I'm so paranoid people can smell me coming a mile off. How close do you have to actually be to smell it?

    I use chewing gum, I don't find it makes me hungry at all but everyone's different. The other thing I found helped the last time was the mint strip things but I dont know many places you get them anymore.

    From purely physiological level chewing stimulates the appetite centre of the brain which then stays on for 20 minutes so you may find chewing gum increases your hunger levels.

    Might be easier and better for you to hit your OH over the head instead? I'm sure your breath is fine and he only says it cos he knows it winds you up :p

    Same here. I was really worried about getting smelly breath before I started the diet, but thankfully I haven't had that problem.

    If I did though, I'd just use the breath spray. I think chewing gum would make me feel hungry.
