    Does anyone know if chewing gum can slow down weight loss?? The pharmacist told me that you could have it in moderation as long as it was sugar free. Anyone got any advice for me???

    You can't have it on LL i'm afraid. There is something in the formulation that can knock you out of ketosis regardless of whether its sugar free or not.

    Sorry!

    Yeah I think it's citric acid, that it has in it. Not allowed I'm afraid. I would say breath freshener is your friend when it comes to tackling ketosis breath lol

    you have to watch a lot of the mouth sprays too, gold spot is ok, but a lot of them contain citric acid too.

    I am amazed that LL do not do their own brand gum - they could make a fortune - all they need is the base gum mixed with St Clements, or with peppermint leaf and sweetner.
