The "braces" diet

Monday, April 15, 2013

Just over a week ago I got braces. Yes, I'm a teenager again!!! I got the invisalign which are clear plastic and you truly can't see them.

The problem (or not, depending on how you look at it) is that you cannot chew, cannot eat at all while wearing them. It's a royal pain to take them out, wash them, put them aside and then eat, then brush my teeth and then brush the braces before I put them back.

Needless to say, it's keeping me from cheating! I just can't pick up something and munch it because I can't chew.

The good news is that I lost a pound and a half this week. 9 months of these braces. I will end up with a great smile and thin body.

    Unfortunately I have never needed braces and have always been able to shove food in my mouth at any! Good luck on your new smile!

    Oh I remember the days when I had braces, and yes I do remember not being able to eat after my adjustments for at least a week and the rest of the time I had to select carefully the foods I ate. Fun times! All worth it for a great smile.
