  • Hi all,

    I’m new to the 5:2 fast diet – second week. I came across this forum when looking for some answers to my really sore jaw. Does anyone have any words of advice/insight to this?
    I’m finding fast days much harder than I thought – any words of advice are really really appreciated.

    Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

    While fasting, many people find themselves clenching their teeth, which puts pressure on their jaws.
    Sometimes this is a stress response and at other times itโ€™s an unconscious substitute for chewing.
    Solutions to this problem include wearing a night guard while you sleep or performing breathing exercises to relax.

    Thanks LesC. I would never have thought it was a subconscious stress indicator. Thank you.
