It could be you are eating to fast or taking large bites. I make chicken breast with salsa and sometimes I think the spiciness irritates my pouch. Please note that my doctor says if you can't eat 3oz of solid protein you are to tight. Could that be your problem?

This is usually my cue that I have eaten too much. Like right now (ugh).

Thats usually a clue for me that I've eaten too much, taken too big of a bite, or eaten way too fast.

Usually means I have eated too fast, eaten something that is going to disagree with my band that day or just plain too much!

That's your cue you are full! I remember post surgery I thot that was so wierd, but it was a way that I knew when I needed to stop! It is hard to learn to feel when you are full - you will in time. Even now, though, if I eat something too fast I get that pain - it is like something is stuck there. :blink: No fun!

For me,, I measure my food. If it says 4oz. I'm good right ! NO WAY ! I have to stop at 3oz. that's when I start to feel that pouch get full. If I go the extra 1oz. it hurts ! ! ! So it's 3 for me, and in a while if I want,I can go back and get the other ounce.
