RE: chewing gum?
When cutting, bulking etc sugar free chewging is completely fine!!!
I know that when you look at the back of even a pack of sugar free chewing gum it says something like 67g carbs per 100g. Dont worry about this, actually ignore it. The carbs found in sugar free gum are called polyols and are not digested.
No carbs digested - no problem. When Im cutting I cant do without my sugar free chewing gum!!!!!!!
