FREDANNA,you are right.......
there are no real no no's......each one of us must find out what works and many times what usually works sometimes doesn't and get stuck too.......following the band rules is the best way and safest way to go...........as well as what your dr expects from you..........as we can see there is a wide variety from each of us here our dr's have their own idea of what they expect from their patients..........


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Jacquie lettuce and spinach are not no-no's. Some people eat a salad every day. I have had a few bites but not much. I think if it is either shredded or cut in very small pieces it is okay. As long as you can chew it really well and get it broken down. I am always afraid if I don't get it chewed well enough it might just lay across opening and won't go down.

I guess not. I'm beginning to think that there are no no-nos--just what each of us can tolerate.

I usually eat bacon, eggs, cottage cheese, steak, chicken thighs, roast, pork chops, peanut butter, sugar free jam, crackers, pork rinds, almonds, pistachios, asparagus tips, broccoli flowerettes, spinach cooked, peeled tomatoes, apples, pears, strawberries, green beans, etc. I very seldom have any bread, no rice, no pasta, no citrus unless it has all the membrane removed, or anything stringy.

I eat a lot of chicken breast - especially the strips that are already cut up that you can buy frozen (not breaded. I sautee them with spinach and throw them on salads. Other staples are Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, string cheese, veggie burgers, sprouts, avocados, fresh salsa, berries, bananas, peanut butter, protein powder, eggs & egg substitute, broccoli, asparagus, squash, sweet potatoes (fresh, not canned), beans, crunchmaster whole grain grackers, oats, almonds, turkey meatballs, chicken sausages, frozen meals like weight watchers smart ones and lean cuisines, and frozen green giant boxed veggies, and low-carb tortillas.

Bread does give me trouble sometimes, but pasta, tortillas, rice, etc., usually goes down fine. I'm getting another fill next week, so that may change!

tuna and tilapia are both very big staples for me, I buy the star kist tuna packages that are ready to eat and I go to costco and get the large boxes of tilapia fillets - my dr issued all of us baby spoons and forks for the most part other than things with a crust or bread or pasta, I can eat just about anything with the baby spoon or fork as they are the perfect bite size to eat

I have been banded for over a year, I was hoping to find a list for buying a weeks' worth of groceries then a menu plan for every day like the main page has

I thank Creator for the ways of creation.
For eyes to see the beauty of creation.
For ears to hear the sounds of creation.
For the heart to understand the ways of Creator
For hands to touch
For words to teach little ones the ways of Creator
I pray for love for all our relations.

Bandsters are all different in what they can eat and what they can't tolerate. It is basically trial and error. I was told to not eat anything white but I do eat potatoes occasionally. I have not had rice or pasta since banding. As far as bread goes I have found that toasted or edges of rolls are okay but the soft bread or center of rolls tends to gum up easily and have a hard time going through opening. I haven't had a problem with asparagus as long as it is just the very tip. I can't eat broccoli though.

Foods usually on my grocery list are fish, chicken, cottage cheese (which I do not like very much), eggbeaters, Greek yogurt, soft cheeses, beef sticks, lox, and raspberries. Once in a while I will have certain foods that usually get stuck, but if I have small pieces and chew well, then I am fine.

Everybody is different. It's trial and error once ur on solids.First 48hrs after surgery u r on clear liquids and then for 1 week and a half weeks u r on liquids. then soft foods for two weeks then solids. It really depends on your doctor though too. My doc told me 70% protein 20% carbs and 10% fat. I hope this helped some.. good luck.

Does anyone know of a meal plan and list for lap band? Things like Dinner rolls, rice shrimp and asperagus are too tough to handle

I thank Creator for the ways of creation.
