I know bread is going to be tough, but Is Pizza out of the question?



Recommended Posts

Just wondering from all of you that have had your bands for awhile, do you ever eat pizza anymore? I have seen that many people do not tolerate bread well at all, but is it the same for pizza? I know that it is not the best choice of food, but i loved pizza and I am just wondering if I will ever be able to eat it again? Not that it's going to happen for me for a long long time. Just wondering!?

I love my breads and hadn't had any since I had an overfill and fill removal in Jan. but I did eat a breadstick 2 nights ago and it was WONDERFUL!! You have to chew super-well and take uber-small bites, but you can do it. I would recommended it as an occasional treat. I haven't been able to eat rice since I was on my mushy diet, it just sticks.

I'm the guy for this question. pizza was and still is my favorite food. As a matter of fact, I can thank the good 'ol pie to me eventually getting the lapband... Damn you pizza, your so good, but bad?? I unfortunately could handle pizza. Only thin crust, and chewed well obviously. the only thing different, i only eat about two slices at the most instead of the usual 7 slices.. I dont reccommend it, but like i said, you won't be able to eat much. Just focus on all your post-op directions and remember, you will be able to enjoy some of the same foods, but it in a healthy moderation. for the record, ... it's best to stay away from foods you were hooked on. good luck, god bless.

I can eat thin crust pizza too. I usually just eat about half of the crust and pull the toppings off the other half. I eat this with a salad and don't feel bad about it. I have lost 60 pounds since Sept. 2010 so I must be doing something right

Funny Stuff.

Some People here acknowledge that pizza is NOT a good choice for someone trying to lose weight. But look at all the people who went ahead and did it anyway.

I have heard of no unsuccessful banders. It is merely a tool to help us reach a goal. As long you don't overindulge there is no issue. Personally, most days I cannot eat bread, but my band is tight - IMO - but I did have a breadstick the other night and it was DIVINE.

again I say it's subjective

Jeez.

And people wonder why the actual success rate of the lap band is so low.

"I have heard of no unsuccessful banders"

You have got to be kidding. The world is full of people with the Lap band who have never even come CLOSE to their goal.

Unbelievable.

I make a pita bread pizza when I'm craving it! Just slice a whole wheat pita in half, spread a little Tomato sauce on it, and then I rip up a light mozzerella cheese stick... add a little oregano and sometimes a sprinkle of ff parmesean cheese... pretty low in calories and it hits the spot.

I'm also a fan of pizzafree.com GREAT no fat, no cholesterol high Protein pizzas!

No reason to mourn pizza. You're just taking a break. I had a hamburger last night (sans bun - band unfilled for tunny tuck) after well over a year. I loved every bite of it, but don't feel the need to have one again tomorrow or anything. I lost my weight partially by not eating carbs. I recommend it because it's pretty crisp and easy to follow. Then again, now that I've lost the weight, if my band would allow and I was in the mood, I'd definitely have a slice. I'm not sure what I'm saying here. I guess that you just need to figure out your style and take it from there. I would say that a good doesn't doesn't involve a whole lot of pizza. But no reason to deprive yourself for eternity either! Just tell yourself you won't have pizza for a certain period of time and then reevaluate.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
