    Is it ok to have chewing gums or mints on CD. I've got a funny taste in my mouth, that I'm quite conscious about, so I've been having the odd chewing gum and mints, is this ok?

    Ketosis has hit!

    You can have the sugar-free gum but not the mints

    The mints can knock you out of ketosis

    Basically if Cambridge don't allow it we don't eat it!

    yes but i menat what's actually in them that causes that. I know certain drinks contain acids that can affect ketosis

    ye gads, just actually read the packet and although they are sugar free they have 225 Kcals per 100grams (although that is more than three packets) mainly down to the fact they have dextrose, sucrose etc in them i expect - that'll teach me not to look closer in future.
    Never mind, they were a nice treat while they lasted :sigh:

    mind you, the sugar free chewing gum has 175 cals per 100 grms (i've just started reading everything a mo!) and 67g of carbs :eek: sneakily it doesn't tell you the actual weight of the chewing gums in the packet
