Band removal before Bypass question



Recommended Posts

For those of you who had to have the band removed first then wait a couple of months for your bypass - did you gain weight? Ive kept most of my weight off which ive lost but some has returned. But what ive kept off i want to keep off. Im scared when they remove the band i might gain it all and then some back.

Any advice woukd be grateful.

I would recommend preparing to eat as though you already have bypass - low carb, high Protein, but with added non-starchy veggies, and count calories. I used a 1400 calorie a day diet and lost 46 lbs in the six months leading up to surgery (just holding steady now). Think of it as practice for your new life. It was very motivating for me. I also started doing more exercise, as I had become very sedentary during the pandemic.

I had my band removed in August, and surgery in Dec of 2019. My surgeon had a weight loss requirement, so I had to lose weight in that time period. As others said, I began to eat my post surgery long term diet during that time and was able to lose weight. For my surgeon that looked like:

- 3 meals, no Snacks

- 100 G of Protein a day

- Vegetables

- Moderate carbs (between 100-150), avoiding processed carbs
