Bread, Pasta and Rice
on Gastric Band Diet

Band Question:

I have no problem eating bread, pasta or rice. Is that a good thing? Is something wrong with my band?

There is nothing wrong with your stomach band!

There is a LOT of trial and error involved with the gastric band diet and everybody seems to be different in what they can and can't tolerate.

The gastric band procedure isn't performed in order to prevent you from eating bread, pasta, and rice. Bariatric banding is simply meant to help reduce the volume of (all) solid foods you eat, thereby reducing the number of calories you intake.

So enjoy small portions of bread, pasta, and rice!
