Best diet tool ever – get a retainer.
I thought having braces was bad, but no, this is worse… much, much worse. With braces, I just had to be careful not to eat certain things that could potentially damage them, with a retainer, I can’t eat at all. I mean, I can, but it involves taking them out (not an easy thing to do), rinsing them, putting them in their case – eating – then brushing my teeth and rinsing/cleaning the retainers again, before putting them back in. Every. Single. Time. I. Eat (anything, even the smallest bite). It’s a HUGE pain in the ass and pretty much eliminates all forms of grazing or snacking (the things that typically get me through the day), because it’s just not worth the effort. But hey… I lost 5 pounds this week!!!
