I wanted to share some tips that are being recommended by the makers of the lap band.

  1. Eat only three small meals a day
  2. Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly
  3. Stop eating as soon as you feel full.
  4. Do not drink while you are eating
  5. Do not eat between meals
  6. Eat only quality foods.
  7. Avoid fibrous food
  8. Drink enough fluids during the day
  9. Drink only low calorie liquids
  10. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day

Hopefully all of you lap band patients out there will find these tips helpful!
