I am considering the band as I had an apt. today with my doc but, after doing research I may not do it afterall.
Most importantly, if the lap band doesn't stop you from overeating than why get it ??!!!
Plus, you can't eat pasta ???!!!!
Bette said it straight foward if you think that then you are not going to do well at all on this surgery .
All the lapband does is keep you fuller longer and cuts your portions down that is it nothing else.
You have to make the choice on what food to put in your mouth, you are the one that needs to stop eating at one cup of food not the lapband but YOU !!!
Any WLS you get done, you have to watch your portions, you have to eat right , and you have to exercise you dont do them three things then most likely you will fail !!
and the original poster . yes I can eat pasta without no problems Im three months out also but at this time I chose not to eat it due to carbs.
We are only suppose to have 50-60 carbs per day and I hate to waste my carbs on just one thing like pasta since its so high in carbs .
Once I lose my weight and to get to goal and maintain I will add it back into my diet but just not right now and to be honest I dont even miss it , I was never a pasta girl anyways :o)
