    I think it's just because it can make you feel more hungry - as long as it's sugar free

    This is what I was told we are not officially allowed to have gum but my councellor said it was because it makes most people hungry as the motion of chewing makes your belly think its going to get food.
    I was told as long as it didnt make me hungry it should be ok but to check it didnt knock me out of ketosis.
    It must be the extras though sugar free and not the strip chewing gum.

    I was reading in the Cambridge Book it is because as the others have said that chewing gum stimulates the release of gastric juices which in turn will make you feel hungry.

    If you must..it say only chew for 2 or 3 minutes and then spit it out.

    Love Mini xxx
