Ok, I have a read a bunch about what you can eat when you are banded but here is my question. I eat a lot of top ramen... yes the cheap stuff for college students lol.. I really love it! Since ti is noodles and liquid, is that not something I should eat when I am banded? I know you aren't supposed to drink while eating so it seems like a bad idea... but I need to know what some veteran bandsters think?? I would hate to lose my top ramen but if I need to I will!

LOL!

Funny you should ask. I just had a cup O’Noodles for lunch.< /span>

Probably not the healthiest option ever, but according to WW it’s only 6 points and it actually holds me for hours. I do eat it sometimes when I’m craving something salty and warm.

I’d only say don’t eat it because it’s full of fat and salt. J Please keep in mind though I’ve been banded almost 2 years now. I would not eat it shortly after surgery.

Good luck to you and maybe someone will answer that so well both know the answer!! :thumbup:

WELL it is good to know that I may get to have it *sometimes* at least... I am trying to get through my top ramen and cup noodles stash before surgery lol! My favorite meal right now is a cup noodles with some hot sauce in it, eat all the noodles, then put a baked potato in the leftover juice and mush it up!! Weird I know but MMMMMM.. very good lol

The only thing I would see wrong with it is it is pure starch/carbs and you need Protein to stay full and lose weight and adding a potato to it, even worse. Carbs and Portion Control is what gets me fat in the first place.

One of the lapband rules I was given is "no pasta."

Even without the rule, with a tight band (at sweet spot), I have a very hard time eating any type of noodles/pasta. When I am so limited with the amount of food I can eat at one time, I try to choose more nutritional stuff if I can.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
