Loud Digestion and Chewing Gum

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hello!

So I am trying low carb for the third time, and the induction hasn't been too bad, just some thirst and headaches, but also very loud digestion. I am not sure why, but all three times I have done low carb, my digestion gets WAY loud in comparison to when I eat a lot of carbs. Does anyone have an explanation for this?

Also, how do you guys feel about gum in between meals? I know it isn't paleo, but I tend to eat when I am bored, and gum keeps me from doing that most often. Is there maybe a certain type I should get, or a limit on how much gum I chew?

Thank you for the help!

I am highly anti-gum. It makes you swallow air. Ergo, bloat.

Also, all those sugar-free gums contain sugar alcohols like sorbitol that also make you bloat.

Drink herbal tea to keep your mouth busy.
