Gastric Band Menu Suggestions

by Wanda
(Tennessee)

I am 17 months out from lapband surgery. Can you suggest some menu options for this stage?



Congrats on almost 1 1/2 years!

We'd love it if you share your lap band story and results to date!

Don't forget that the same diet principles apply 1 1/2 years out from surgery as they did in the beginning:

Include small amounts of protein every meal, don't eat and drink at the same time, take small bites, chew your food well, eat "solid" foods...

...Review the 10 Commandments of Bariatric Eating.

By now, you may be getting bored with some of your usual choices. See these sample menu ideas to jazz things up and re-motivate if necessary.

Don't forget to visit weekly for the recipe of the week too!

Bon apetit!
