Floss and Brush!

Sunday, March 10, 2013

My meals are great! I plan very well-rounded meals - just the right calories, carbs, fats, protein. and plenty of fiber!!

It's what I eat after my meals that's throwing my nutritional tracking numbers all out of "whack"!!! So today, after breakfast, I flossed then brushed my teeth - not a single snack pang all morning and now it's time for lunch! I'm not opposed to snacks, so when I do have a healthy snack, it'll be back to the floss and brush.

Hmmmm... This could be could for my snack attacks and dental health :)

    That's funny. I used to use this trick a lot when I lost 20 pounds in 5 weeks. I got on the Atkins diet, worked out 4 days a week and I would brush my teeth after everything I ate. So then chocolate or whatever it is that I would normally want, didn't sound so good with the toothpaste flavor in my mouth. Also you don't want to mess up your clean mouth. I'm going to have to try this trick again. Thanks for reminding me!
