    Hi
    Does anyone chew gum? Does it take you out of ketosis?

    You're not meant to. Mainly because it can make you salivate and feel hungry and can lead to you eating.

    I don't do it - but I know there are some people on here that do.

    I think if you stick to sugar free it shouldn't kick you out of ketosis.

    Dan, if its not in the book and you want to be 100% then dont bother!
    but you should be eating now with your BMI at 24!

    I chew gum all day EVERY day. It doesn't knock me out of ketosis and doesn't make me feel hungry. But I have heard that some people are more effected than others. Maybe give it a go for 1 week and if it does effect you in anyway, you'll know what it is and can stop having it. Hugs x x x

    lol - we know! ha ha :):):) Make sure they are sugar free though, and avoid the sugar coated, and gue in the middle (ie trident soft - although they are sugar free the stuff in the middle contains citric acid) Also, on ebay they sell mint strips for 1.99 - they dissolve on the tongue and are sugar free. Enjoy! Hugs x x x

    if u are planning on having some sugarfree gum make sure u only buy mint and NOT fruit flavours as these contain citric acid which is what is more likely to kick u out of ketosis.

    I only have gum when out of an evening, when you're drinking water and everyone else is drinking you need something to chew on! It also saves me having to explain, 'I'm on a diet' to everyone who offers it.
    No adverse reaction, didn't kick me out of ketosis but worried like hell that it would.
