I can't afford to get the lapband, but I went to the "meeting" to check it out years ago. I left thinking, well maybe the after surgery rules might help now. So, I tried the eating & drinking seperately. For the very first time in my life, I understood what "my" full felt like. And I finally knew where my stomach was. Wasn't where I thought.
Stop drinking 30min before eating. Wait an hour after eating to drink anything. I thought my stomach feeling full would be down by my belly button & under my belt. BUT NOOOO! It was right under my ribs above my belly button. 200+ pounds changes things a lot!
