    I think it knocks you out of ketosis and also makes you feel hungry, hope this helps

    Im sure its mroe a psychological reason than any. Chewin gum brings on the feeling of hunger, which on a VLCD im sure no one wants haha x

    I tend to just brush my teeth a lot more often. Sometimes use chewing gum but not often as it leaves me starving and craving really bad stuff lol

    Its because it gets your gastric juices ready for food, as some of what you chew gets swallowed, and that causes hunger unfortunately. Some people can use it though, without any side effects or problems x

    :). It's like a lot of things in a VLCD all you can do is see how it works or doesn't work for you

    I have chewing gum sometimes too.. Honestly, I still need to be around people, even if I'm on a diet..
    No negative effects here either.

    I chewed gum all the time before Exante, and really struggled the first few days with not chewing. It never made me hungry before, so I have it again now, and it doesn't make me hungry now.
