What strictly can't I eat after gastric lap-band weight loss surgery?



These are the foods most likely to cause a problem with your gastric lap-band:

  • dry meat

  • untoasted or doughy bread

  • rice

  • peanut butter

  • fibrous or "stringy" fruits and vegetables (celery, asparagus, corn, pineapple, dried fruits)

  • greasy or fried, crispy foods

  • the white, pithy membranes of citrus fruits

  • carbonated beverages


You should also avoid foods that supply a concentrated source of calories with little nutritional value like sugary foods and fried foods:
candy, cakes, cookies, ice cream, pastries, fast food, potato chips, etc.
