Nutrition for Gastric Band Wearers
I work as part of the bariatric team at a local hospital, helping patients adapt to life with a gastric band. I also see band wearers in my clinic – usually when their weight has plateaued and they don’t know why.
Having a gastric band is not a quick fix and comes with consequences in terms of nutritional deficiencies. Studies show obese people are often deficient in nutrients that will directly affect their ability to lose weight – and having a band will make it even harder to get the necessary vitamins and minerals for long term health and weight-loss unless care and attention is given.
After years of research I have published a book… it is packed with practical advice, information and recipes to help you manage your health and weight with a gastric band.
