Post Lap Band Diet: What to Eat after Lapband Surgery?

Share
January 17th, 2008

Doctors provide post lap band diet advice, but the recommendations can be different for different people. Below is an example of a diet recommendation after lap band in a major Costa Rican hospital. This is to only give you a good idea of what to expect, but, remember, you must follow the advice given by your lap band surgeon.

  • Post-lap band surgery, your gastric capacity has been restricted between 3 and 8 ounces (90 mililiter-240 mililiters).Hence, the first few days, you need to respect the recommended amounts and the allowed foods, in order for your body to adapt and to reduce nausea, pain, and vomiting.
  • The volume of food ingested should not exceed 240 ml (a small dessert cup or an 8 ounce plate). Remember that you must eat slowly and chew very well each morsel  of food.
  • You can drink between 1 and 1.5 liters of water daily outside the daily meals. Remember to do it slowly, in little sips and preferably with a little spoon.
  • Remember that the liquids you drink must be low in or free from calories . You can use a sugar substitute such as SPLENDA, no-Sucar, Equal, Nutra sweet, etc.
  • Avoid food that could cause obstruction in the passage of food from your stomach to the small intestines such as: raw food with rind (apples, pear, mangoes, etc); seeded food (blackberries, guava, kiwi, popcorn, seeds like peanuts, almonds, cashews, etc.); fibrous food (Mandarin, orange, pineapple, etc).
  • You should not drink any liquids, not even water during meals. Do it 15 to 30 minutes before or after meals.
  • Do not drink carbonated drinks or alcoholic beverages for six months after the procedure.
  • Do not stretch, recline on the sofa, or lie down in bed after eating.
  • Do not eat dried nuts or ceded fruits until indicated by your nutritionist (blackberries, peanuts, cashews, almonds, guava, strawberries, etc).
  • Ideally, medicines should be mashed and diluted in water to permit better swallowing and absorption. You can even consider taking the liquid versions. If that is not possible, take the capsules in the way mentioned above.
  • Avoid sugar-sweetened foods and drinks (marmalades, coconut water, “agua dulce”, etc).
  • Stop eating when you feel satisfied, don’t wait till you feel completely full.
  • If you have vomiting or constant diarrhea for more than 3-5 days, call your doctor.
  • Your nutritionist will recommend the nutritional supplements and food in order to maintain the adequate proteins and calories for your daily needs.
  • When you eat food, remember to chew properly and with the mouth closed, and try to take your meals in a calm and relaxed pace.
  • If you are a woman of reproductive age, ask for contraceptive methods to avoid pregnancy for a year after the surgery.
  • Maintain the incisions clean and dry.
  • Gradually increase movement and physical activity. Try not to lift heavy weights in order to avoid strain on the abdominal muscles and the zones of incision.
  • Do not forget to take your daily vitamins.
