Need some advice from you experienced bandsters

I went to the dr. Because i have been feeling really tight & wanted a slight unfill. He took out a whole cc to be on the safe side and said we would slowly proceed back up with tiny fills in the next two months. Here's the problem : now that i only have 3 cc in a 10 cc band i have NO RESTRICTION WHAT-so-EVER!!!! I am freaking out a bit.

Here's where YOU come in... think I might have actually been in the green zone but wasn't working my band properly. I'm not sure how much I am supposed to be able to eat...2 oz protein plus some fruit or veg. In one sitting?? 1/2 cup total of food as a meal? Maybe I wasn't too tight but eating too much occasionally & that's why I would get stuck? I know I am still in the stage of finding out what my band will tolerate......that adds to some of the confusion too. I need some guidelines...please help.


  1. I am honestly no help here. I do not feel I am anywhere near the green zone and never have been. I have always been too loose..... Not me, my band (grin)

  2. Everyone's different, unfortunately. I eat 3-4 solid protein per sitting plus veggies.
