    OH MY! How could you?! This is a sure sign of overtraining and lack of discipline!

    Of course, if you'd like, you could come over to my house and "discuss" the importance of discipline and rest.

    You seem like a very devoted person, so i say, chew the gum and enjoy it. IF, not when, IF it hinders your progress, that will be the motivation you need to drop it.

    My personal beliefs are, that some of us take this WAY to seriously. Aside from those who actually compete (and even they need to have lives, because i doubt anyone here is willing to take roids and all that other shit to turn pro) we are here because we like the lifestyle and mostly we want to look good naked. I don't see the point in getting an ulcer over little things like chewing gum. I have fat-kid syndrome, so i'm in this for the long run, but i don't plan on killing myself over little insignificant things. Chew your gum proudly, you'll burn more cals

    how is chewing sugar free gum hindering her progress?

    that just seems kind of trivial.

    Chewing Gum

    Caffeine Redux

    Just more reading


    ...and before ya'll start coming on to me saying "it won't make that much of a difference"...not naming names or anything (TCD)....Leslie is competing, she has been cutting for a long time and has still several weeks to go...AND her progressed has slowed.

    ....and, I have first-hand experience w/ gum, thermos/caffeine, and stress screwing w/ my metabolism...Leslie...do any of these apply to you?

    I reckon the first part of this quote explains more why her progress has slowed than chewing gum.

    But i care not.

    Well, not exactly. I want her to do well, but i don't care how you make her go about things.

    yeah, that's better.

    Thanx Rob.


    w8,

    i was in no way trying to undermine anything you said. I completely understant the dangers of the CIR, and sugar alcohols to a competitive bodybuilder's diet, especially in the last few weeks of dieting prior to competition.

    Everyone else,

    note i bolded 'competitive' so don't start calling me hypocritical, because i still stand by my earlier statement of not going ape sh*t over little details. However, anyone that knows anything about pre-contest dieting has to know about the absolute discipline that the last few weeks require.

    I think the above is an agreeable stmnt- my show is like 4 weeks away- so I guess I need to steer clear of sweeteners ect- Once the show is done, I will be back on the gum kick for sure

    LOL, gum? I thought gum actually helped you burn calories? Right? By the way, I'm a Dentine Ice gum junkie.

    Wow imagine what a lil 'innocent' Artificial Sweetners in gum can do and how critical than can be near contest time...

    But what about toothpaste? Did you know some if not most brands have AS in them? So what's a competitive bb to do?

    Have a nice buff body with a stinky breath?

    Ya'll don't know how disgusting BB can be in the final week, LOL...I've gone w/o toothpaste in the final days before a show

    EW....there's more to think about than calories!

    Yanick....Thanks....and I totally agree....in most instances...gum and artificial sweetners are not something to stress over.

    Yep, go for baking soda. Toothpaste is actually bad for you to eat (flouride off the top of my head, maybe aluminum or something too).

    It's like Duke Nukem said, leslie:
    "It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of gum !!"

    Great, now I want some gum ... and someone dropped a pack of M&M's on my desk .. B*ST*RDS!
