Review and consolidate your knowledge at your own leisure on your own or even with your family to embrace their support at a time that is convenient to you. So let me guide you:

Step 1. In preparation for surgery, you may be asked by your surgeon to follow a very low calorie diet such as Optifast to shrink your liver.

1. There is an online lecture you can refer to at: http://lapbanddiet.com.au/optifast/

2. There are also some recipes to create some interesting meals with your permitted carbohydrate free vegetables at: http://lapbanddiet.com.au/category/lap-band-recipes/optifast-pre-surgery/

Step 2. Immediately post surgery you will need to be on fluids to allow time for the scar tissue to form between the Lap Band and the stomach, for it to settle and minimize the chances of the band slipping. Which type of liquids, how much to drink and possible to issues that you will need to consider are discussed at: http://lapbanddiet.com.au/fluids-post-surgery-diet/

Recipes to help during the fluid phase: http://lapbanddiet.com.au/category/lap-band-recipes/fluids-post-lap-band-surgery/

Please be guided by your surgeons preference regarding the time frame to spend in each dietary phase.

Step 3. Begin to transition onto solid food. Recipes are also located at http://lapbanddiet.com.au/category/lap-band-recipes/wet-and-easy/ to begin your transition diet

You can also download your free book providing all the details for the pre-surgery and immediately post surgery diet at http://lapbanddiet.com.au/. Look at the bottom right hand column.
