I've seen a cookbook out there somewhere that was made just for banders. It has all lapband friendly meals in it and I'm trying to find it. Anyone know of one?

That is the one that my nutritionist recommended. Some really good recipes in that one. You can get it on Amazon.Also, I have found the Hungry Girl cookbooks just full of healthy ideas that are protein-rich, yummy and satisfying!!! I also have some great crockpot recipes I could send over to you. If you'd like to PM me with your email address, I can send you the file. Not sure how to post an attachment on here (can you tell I'm one of the old school members LOL)?

There is one in my doctors office called Weight Loss Surgery for Dummies Cookbook or something like that. It covers other surgeries as well, but is specific to the requirements of Lap Band vs Gastric Bypass. I'm going to go find that one myself.

I have the Eating Well cookbook and also Before and After by Susan Maria Leach. She also has most if her recipes (free) on her web site at www.bariatriceating.com. Everything I have made from her recipes are wonderful.

I have the Dummies book and the Eating Well After book and a couple of others. I'm disappointed in the fact that the recipes make way too much food. I'd like to see a cookbook with recipes for only 1 or 2 servings. I don't want to make 4-6 servings (some even make 8) because I'll be eating the same thing all week!

There is another forum for all WLS patients (not just bandits) that has a recipe thread. Many of the recipes were developed and posted by WLS patients so they make much less. I'd give you the name of the forum, but I don't know if that's good netiquette to suggest a forum on a post in a different forum. The other forum doesn't have as much traffic as this one, so many of the posts are old (as in years) but the recipe thread is excellent. If you can message me, I'll tell ya.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
