I’m interested in the topic of (intermittent) fasting. About fasting, Chad writes this in the blog:
“Your body doesn’t care how little of an amount it may have been. It’s like a shark with blood. The second your body gets a taste of glycogen, it will go for it and leave anything else that might have been desirable to consume for fuel behind. Then comes the most unfortunate part of all: your fat metabolism shuts down. This is what you want to avoid.”
This makes me wonder: Does stuff like tooth paste and chewing (both taste sweet, but are said to be ‘sugar free’) stop the process of fasting, especially your fat metabolism?
Chad says that once your body gets the taste of glycogen, your fat metabolism shuts down. Does the same thing count for sweet stuff like tooth paste and/or chewing gum?
