I'm fairly new to cycling and I'm worried that once I get my braces that I won't be able to eat my typical bars, ie; inKind, Cliff bars etc... Does anyone have any experience with that? I'm open to suggestions, even if I have to make something homemade! My orthodontist is not a cyclist and because I'm pretty new at this, it's hard for me to explain what my nutritional/recovery needs will be during and after rides/training, especially during the big rides I've signed up for - Tour de Cure and the STP. I won't have time to experiment with bars because I get my braces on 2 days before my first big ride, the Tour de Cure, so I was hoping someone out there has already been in this situation.
Thanks for any guidance and/or assistance you are able to provide!
