Gum a no-no?

Recommended Posts

I'm sitting here at my desk dealing with bread cravings like mad crazy and reach for my Spearmint gum...then realize I'm about to throw a chemistry set into my face. Is this a negligible amount or a major no-no?

Sugar free gum is not the variable that will determine your health.  Just watch how it impacts what you eat (maybe you'll forgo eating when you should, or maybe you'll start eating more junk food), and if you get TMJ, it may aggravate things.

I'm clearly more sensitive (read: my stomach is more effed up) than most people, so sugar-free gum irritates me, but I don't think in general it's a big problem. If it is bothering you though, or if you want to stick on the safe side, try chewing sticks. I'm addicted. They are cheap at many health food stores and are usually birch toothpicks infused with tea tree and peppermint oil. They are natural and effective fresheners and stop my food cravings.
