Brush Your Teeth


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

At night while I'm watching TV, instead of eating a snack I go brush my teeth. It really does curb the desire to eat again - especially when I know I'm not hungry.

    One thing to note though is that if you brush your teeth too much it can harm them because the enamel on teeth can become damaged. If you brush too hard this can hurt your pearls as well. I really love the idea because its a distraction from snacking too much but I would opt for sugarless gum first. emoticon

    That's what I do too ~ it helps a lot, especially when one of my kids or my husband decides to make popcorn, eat chips or cookies, etc.
