Dear struggling, future and all Lap Banders,
Are you struggling to live with the lap Band? Do you wish it was easier to eat ‘normal food’ pain free, rather than living on soups, casseroles and junk food? Are you unsure of the solutions to successfully lose weight, meet your nutritional needs, manage the daily fluctuations of ‘yesterday I could eat it, why not today’ ? Do you know what and how much to eat?
It is time to learn how to live with the Lap Band.
Weight loss with the Lap Band is like dating!!! It’s extremely exhilarating initially, the weight quickly and easily melts away. You feel close to no hunger and your interest in food is normally diminished.
You will have your ups and downs as you initially learn how to respond appropriately to the demands of the Lap Band initially and long term.
But most importantly………. like dating, relationships require commitment and effort. Acknowledging that you need to work in partnership with the Lap Band, will help you overcome your fear of “will this work” and ensure that the answer is yes.
It only takes 7 1/2 steps to achieve your weight loss goal with the Lap Band.
How do I know? I have counseled well over 3000 individuals who have had Lap Band surgery. After years of experience, I have successfully pieced together the needs of the banded community, apply this content into all of my consultations, DVD’s and book ‘The Gastric Band Nutrition Essential’.
“I thoroughly recommend this book to all with Gastric Bands, as it works! Patients find it easy, encouraging, and they quickly learn the healthy eating habits that lead to their goal, ie. becoming slimmer, fitter and happier.” -Dr Kathryn De ‘ Garis, Lap Band Physician
“I am absolutely amazed at the content. Why wasn’t I told this 3 years ago when I had the band????? I could have avoided a lot of problems. I started to chew food like you said and today for the first time I had a slice of wholegrain bread with tuna. From now on you are going to be ST. HELEN in my book. I have sent for the three DVD’s and I am going to follow every word. I am Italian and a chef and I eat differently. I have not touched rice or pasta for 3 years, have lost 40 kg but recently had the band emptied because of problems ( mainly due to regurgitation) and have put on 10 kg. I hate it!!!!! Thank you again, I would come and see you and sit at your feet, but I live 3 hours away damn it.” -G.Gvagna
“The Gastric Band Nutrition Essential was the best information I have received prior to my operation. After looking for information through various websites, I couldn’t really find what I was looking for, but then I came across The Gastric Band Nutrition Essential and it was the best information I have received prior to my operation. It made me feel well prepared for my first few weeks at home. It was money well spent and the recipes are fantastic. Thank you very much for my life saver book and I congratulate you on what you do. Looking forward for your next book.” -Thanks Lina DiFalco
