For a short term fast I think those things should be fine. If you go longer, you'll likely find that you can no longer stomach them and/or stand the taste. Also, they may set off hunger pangs, as artificial sweetners are known to do.

As I think I mentioned, I drank black coffee for a while on my first long fast--I probably also chewed some sugarless gum/mints. For the best experience, though, I think just simply going to water is the best bet.

Of course, to each his/her own--try it and see what works--make adjustments as neccessary.
