Foods Allowed to Have After Lapband
by Barbara Mills
I am wondering if I can have white potatoes, or tortilla style sandwiches?
I have not have the gastric band yet. I am on the protein shakes now, and surgery is the 29th of April.
There is a bit of trial and error involved with the post surgery diet. You may or may not be able to tolerate the tortilla and potatoes.
tortilla may be better tolerated than a flour
tortilla. If you don't tolerate either, you can eat lettuce wrap sandwiches instead.
Note: Given the choice between white potato and sweet potato, I'd suggest the sweet potato for greater nutrition :)
