  1. I've had that feeling a lot of times over the past year since I unfilled my band and then refilled it - its never had the same restriction. After six years banded, I have a good idea of what I think constitutes and appropriate meal and over the past year, i've been able to eat quite a bit more than that at times.

    I serve myself from a small plate, I fill it to allow my eyes to see a big meal, I really focus on eating slowly and I include foods - like steak - that satisfy more easily. I havent had no restriction, just not great. When I've eaten my meal, I go and brush my teeth and simply make myself do something engaging or busy for 20 minutes or so, just long enough for that desire for more to dissipate. After that I can usually just go the rest of the evening without anything other than a cup of coffee.

    So - I wouldnt serve myself a 6 ounce steak in the first place. I dont put it on my plate and hope I wont be able to eat it all, because in truth, I will be able to and if its there I will.
