It seems to me that different doctors emphasize different things with respect to what you can and can not do with the band.
These are the rules I'm to live by...
Don't drink 20 minutes before you eat through 30 minutes after you eat.
Eat 60-80g of protein a day.
Drink 64 oz of water a day.
Don't eat bread, rice, or pasta at all for 6 months.
Don't drink anything with carbonation for at least 6 months.
Don't have any caffeine for 2 weeks after surgery.
Exercise at least 3 times per week.
How do your rules differ???
What, if anything, does your doctor say about bread/pasta/rice, or carbonation?
Do you have a number of calories guideline.
Are there any other rules that your doctor gave you that my doctor didn't touch on at all?
Thanks for your input!!
