Include protein at every meal and snack

Get in the habit of including a good source of protein at every meal and snack.

Protein is an essential component of your permanent diet after LAP-BAND® surgery. It will help keep your pouch full and therefore help you feel full.

LAP-BAND® Post Op Diet: Eat 5 small meals per day

Get in the habit of eating 3 small meals as well as protein supplements at mid morning and mid afternoon.

Even after you move on to solid food, 5 small meals a day is how you should continue to eat for the rest of your life!

I just made a yummy mushie concoction.

Smoked Salmon & Dill Mash.

Just steamed and mashed a potato, a third of a sweet potato, decent size head of broccoli with two tablespoons of extra light Philly cheese. Then added some fresh dill, 3-4 slices of smoked salmon and a bit of salt & pepper and mashed that all in so there were no lumps put it back on the gas to heat through and mmmmm........mmmmm it tasted good. It made heaps and I ate about a quarter of it for dinner.
