Brilliant - life changing to be sure....
One thing I have to share something on... the chewing gum thing -
It was suggested to me by someone years ago that as you are chewing gum you are sending your digestive system messages that "food is coming" - ie the saliva that gets produced as you chew.
Since no food is coming... the acid to digest the food that never arrives can build up unnecessarily in your gut.
May not be an issue immediately - but just something to think about.
Thanks for being you.
