I chew sugar free gum after lunch at work and I haven't had any problems.

It may be sugar-free, but it isn't carb free - I think there may be about 5g carbs per stick, but don't quote me on that - it's been awhile since I bought any. I do use it occasionally without any ill effects.

I haven't had any problems with gum but have with sugar free candy. I over-indulged and should have read the warning on the pack that said consuming too much can give you an upset stomach. It did!

Oh yeah if you are type 2, and a little "backed up" then there is nothing like downing a bag of reeses sugarfree peanut butter cups or a bowl of sugar free ice cream to get the ole plumbing working normal again!

It will have you doing that "green-apple two step" for a good afternoon or so.

I really like the IceBreaker's Ice Cubes gum. It's 2 carbs/piece and lasts a long time. I've had no issues with it, and chew it every day.

Default Ice Cream Substitute

I know this is an old Post, but I felt i had to share the gum I found this week end... Extra Dessert Delights. It has 2 Carbs from Sugar Alcohol and I need to say after dinner when others were eating Ice Cream I was happy with my Mint Chocolate Chip Chewing gum. Highly recommend it
