I'm a newbie so I would love to hear the answer to this. My coach said I'm allowed 4 carbs as extras (gum, seasonings, etc)

I chew extra sugar-free gum every day and sometimes have sugar-free hard candy like peppermints, cinnamon disk or butterscotch disk

I chew Ice Breakers ice cubes spearmint. Has less than 5 calories and no sugar. I have to have good breath because I work face to face with customers all day and the bad breath doesn't help any.

Good to know, Wuv. You are a walking/talking success and I know your methods of weight loss work. I always learn a lot from you and appreciate your posts.

Glad to hear about the Ice Breakers. Because of the ketones causing bad breath for me, I have tried to control it with extra, extra water. But, I am going to take your's and wuv's advice. Thanks for the info.

That's a lot of carbs for one piece of gum...the extra I chew has 2 carbs and 2 sugar alcohols so nothing really.

I wish our clinic allowed gum/mints. The only thing we are allowed is Binaca breath spray and the new IP drops that you mix with water.

On that note, there are a lot of things that are on the market that you can have for example the things I have mentioned. The products are expensive enough, I do not push any of the other products on my clients. I try to help them save as much money as possible so that they can afford the products and continue to have success on it, THAT is what is most important to me and to them!..of course this is IMO only

My coach told me that not all sugar-free gums/candy are allowed; Spry is one brand they recommend as it uses xylitol, and not sucralose or maltitol, etc. But I guess if you're not too sensitive to sugar alcohols, you can have your pick of sugar free gum. I have a bottle of Spry cinnamon gum but sometimes when I want something sweeter, I eat a stick of sugar-free Trident cinnamon. As this happens very rarely, I'm not too concerned about the higher sugar alcohol content.

Our clinic says we can only have Spry gum and one packet of 4C drink mix per day. Not sure why different clinics say different things.
