Have Stopped Losing Weight After LapBand

I need dietary advice.

I had my gastric banding in 2002. I initially lost 6 stones. Since then I have not been able to lose any more weight but still weigh 13.7 stones.

My band is tight. I am unable to eat any meat, bread, etc., basically only mush and small portions.

What is your advice?

First off, I'd suggest keeping a food journal. Keep track of what and how much you eat and drink so you can get a clear picture of what's going on and what the barriers to weight loss might be!

In addition, it might be smart to review the 10 Commandments of Bariatric Eating and re-commit to them if you've gotten away from any of the basic eating principles.
