How do you eat with a new lip piercing?

from the day you get your lip piercing done, the back, flat part of the labret bar imbeds slightly into your lip, don't worry as long as the lip doesn't engulf the bar, because this is normal. as a result, the bar kind of blends into your lip and it becomes easier to eat as the days go by of the healing process. just be careful if the first labret bar you got from the piercing place is long, because you can end up chewing the bar by mistake, so take eating slow the first while and you'll be fine :)
