Lap Band Question
(Richmond Virginia, USA)
Regarding Lap Band:
I have had 2 adjustments and my surgery was on 9/4/08. I know I need to have protein in my diet but actually how much do I need to at least keep the hunger away? Can you help?
Hi Lisa and thanks for writing!
Protein is an important part of your Lap-Band diet because it helps you heal after surgery and it also helps fill you up.
Please see my website devoted entirely

Aim for 60-80 grams of protein per day as a general guideline. However, be sure to follow your bariatric center's guidelines if they are different.
