After Lap-Band Surgery patients are advised by the doctor to avoid alcoholic beverages, tea, coffee, etc.
High-caloric density foods (fast food, ice cream, pretzels, chips, sweets, pastas and baked goods) defeat any weight loss surgery, yet these are the foods patients eat when suffering from so-called 'Head Hunger'.
Eating badly is the source of obesity for any patient. So, the same problem that caused obesity is still ongoing.
Though the patient knows very well that these things are forbidden, he often cannot help eating the same bad foods. This greatly lowers the rate of success of Lap-Band Surgery.
Some treatable complications following Lap-Band Surgery are nausea, vomiting, gastro esophageal reflux, stoma obstruction, constipation, dysphagia, diarrhea, and abnormal stools. Some people even have the Lap-Band Surgery removed due to complications.
Bottom line? You must start controlling your eating patterns, following Lap-Band Surgery. There's just no free ride.
Yes, Lap Band success requires the Patient to make the same changes that weight-loss requires without surgery.
But wait. Here's another possibility. One that costs nothing, and will, in fast, save a you great deal of money.
Did you know that we are all born with a lap band, from birth.
Amazing, yes? It is a band of constrictive tissue on the lower half of your face.
This natural band (that we are born with) can control food intake quite well, if the mind commands it to close at the right times.
Its that constrictive band that is called your mouth.
