Too much food

Recommended Posts

Two weeks after surgery and I am allowed soft food. This is going really well but I was wondering how do I know if I am eating enough or too much?

I can eat the inside of half a baked potato and two tablespoons of very over cooked veg yum yum.

One egg scrambled and 1/4 tin tomato for breakfast. I am still drinking protein shake for lunch. Is this to much? I also want to drink all the time.

My band has nothing in it at the moment & I am due a band fill on the 4th October.

On the liquid I lost over a stone in weight now it has stopped and I am getting a few headaches, anyone else had this?

I really don't know much about lapbad but I thought you didn't have a lot of restriction in there until you get the first fill.   Did they give you any sort of information of what and how much you are supposed to be eating per meal?


In my book they group all the WLS together in the meal plans for the most part but it says Pureed diet 1-2 weeks 1/4 to 1/3c.  Soft diet 2-4 weeks 1/4 to 1/2 cup.
