Can you eat beans if you have the lapband?
I was just wondering if you can eat beans after you have healed up from the lapband surgery? If you can, do they have to be like refried beans, all mushed up?
Beans are a great source of fiber and protein and are therefore a great choice!
In the soft/mushy diet stages, refried beans would be a good choice. Once you've advanced to a regular diet, whole beans are absolutely fine to eat.
Choose a variety of black beans, pinto beans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, lentils, etc.!
