Breakfast, lunch, and dinner can be consumed around the same time as before you were banded, only now their are new rules that you need to follow in order to be successful with your Lap Band.
- Breakfast should be at the start of your day, not 4 hours later. Do not forget to eat breakfast!
- Dinner has to be 2-3 hours before you go to bed.
- You should spend up to 30 minutes to consume your meal and no more. After 30 minutes your pouch has begun to empty. If you continue to eat, you will start to refill and take in a larger meal, defeating the purpose of the band. The only exception to this is if you measured out your food ahead of time and are eating fibrous foods that may take additional time to eat.
