List of slider foods



Recommended Posts

Having a lap band for a decade, I am an expert on sliders so let me add a few to this list...tortilla chips or anything crispy like a potato chip or cracker and the sneakiest thing of all...any sauces or Condiments that we add to otherwise dense food (like chicken for me) that essentially helps the food to slide down better. One of my favorite slider-helpers was sour cream.

Also, my nemesis and what I have had a love-affair with fore 40 years..pasta. No matter how tight my band was, I can always eat Pasta.

I am a newbie and have read a little about slider foods. Can you tell me some foods to avoid because they are sliders? I read popcorn' date=' shakes, ice cream and chips are sliders to avoid. Any else?[/quote']

Any junk food is slider food !

Popcicles, sugar free pudding, and Jello are all sliders. I don't waste my "space" on anything that doesn't have Protein, most of the time. Try string cheese and later on, beef Jerky.< /p>

My nut said to think of it two ways.....

If it breaks down with mainly saliva and little to no chewing.... Like crackers or chips.. It is a slider and moves through too quickly. BUT

You can also make good foods sliders by adding goop to them causing them to slide on through your tummy too quickly.. Ex.. Too much mayo in tuna, too much gravey on beef or drinking at the same time while eating!

The goal is dense Protein to cause the pylorus to close.

Would Protein shakes be a slider food as well? I ask this because if it contains Protein it should keep us full, right?

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
