    Hi
    I am on day 5, want to check if sugar free gum is allowed?
    I just chew half of one for 2-3 minutes, but few times a day, is that ok?
    Thanks

    I'm on day 6 and would also like to know this :)
    I've had the odd chewing gum, and it hasn't knocked me out of ketosis - I check everyday. I hope this is allowed!!

    I read somewhere that chewing gum can stimulate excess stomach acid and lead to you feeling very hungry as a result - not sure if this is true but I won't risk it!

    afraid chewing gum is a no no , can leave you hungry and some contain nasties that can effect ketosis .. I use listerine strips which you can get in some supersaver shops or i get mine off e bay :)

    i have always used chewing gum but only chew for a very short time just to take the taste away. It has never knocked me out of ketosis. You can only chew for a short time though as it does make you feel hungry as your brain is teeling your stomach it is about to receive food xx

    Hope this helps x

    I chew sugar free gum every day, my CDC said it's not 'allowed' but shouldn't k me out of ketosis they just don't recommend it coz it stimulates stomach acid and can possibly make u feel hungry x

    I have sugar free gum every day. Get through about half a pack a day! I am really paranoid about bad breath. It hasn't affected me at all so dont worry :)

    I wouldn't recommend it to my customers but only because it can make you feel hungry. However I do know that we have to get on with our lives and if you are in close contact with people all day you don't want bad breath. If you feel you need it then chew! Just don't keep it for ages or you might start to feel sick with the hunger
