Excellent points here, BG. I am making an effort to go with solid proteins too. Candy is definitely a trigger food for me - I simply cannot eat just one. So I'm trying to go cold turkey on candy for the weight loss phase because it's essentially a slider and I know it's what is hampering my weight loss at the moment.

Thanks for pointing these things out. I do tend to overeat dips, so it's something I'll have to try to see if I can handle it reasonably.

As always, love the visual!

I could not agree more! You ever try hummus on a sammich instead of mayo? Something to consider.

I am totally with you on the dips and hummus. I will go nuts on dips...and have, unfortunately. I don't keep them around much aside from salsa--it's not a trigger for me as I rarely eat it without it being on a taco or some other Mexican dish. I am trying to do more solid proteins too (although I haven't completely cut out everything non-solid).

This is such helpful information!

Thank you!

Awesome post! I am like you, I don't do the protein diet foods, prepackaged frozen meals or low fat/fat free stuff. I do go for the "shake" but I pack it with fruit and Greek yogurt and other things to make it more substantial than just a protein shake.

I've never tried Kashi Go Lean Cereal and now I know to not start. :)

Yeah I am really trying to leave the diet behaviour out the picture. I am just learning which foods work for my band and which do not. I still have a protein shake or a smoothy in the morning when I have to eat and run cause my band is usually tight until about 10 so it goes down well. I am not a big fan of protein shakes but it helps me on days when my protein is low.. Which I have had lol. Cause dang still getting use to this band. Thanks again for all the good info...

Very interesting-- but I would love to hear what you ARE eating...

I find myself eating alot of cheese and 1% milk (in latte's) lately. Alot of fish.

trying to get in more veggies-- not that much fresh fruit right now and I'm a little confused about how to proceed...

I've been really trying to eat more "real" food and avoid all that processed crap. I also avoid SF & low/no fat stuff (except 2% milk & cottage cheese)because I think it is far less satisfying.

Thanks for the info! I love your little series. It's been very helpful!

Sandy Lee said...

Great post. I am working on making my own solid meals and getting away from the processed crap. I agree, sliders won't help me lose weight. And I miss fruits and veges. I used to eat tons of veges and can now only manage a few bites.

Barbara said...

Dang!!! I love the Go Lean Kashi cereal and that picture is of me with my hummus face and pita chips..
I do like those Yoplait shakes though.. I keep thinking it is just like ice cream... great info in your posts.. please share more.. Hope your GB is not acting up... stay warm..

Bonnie said...

Your blogs are so informative. I think as I get closer to my banding I'll just read your blog from beginning to end in preparation. :)

Camille said...

I totally agree. I am also trying to get to a healthy "real food" stage once I have my surgery. Things like dips and hummus are HUGE trigger foods for me. I had never thought of it until this post. I was asked to make a list of trigger foods and I am now putting that at the top of the list. Thanks for some great points.

Jacquie said...

Please keep these posts coming. They will be so helpful to me in the coming months. Thank you BG!

Graet tips thanks. I agree with most of it. I use homous with vegies or as a spread on crackers. I like a protein shake in the am occasionally but don't consider it a diet food anymore just a good way to have some ptroein in the am if I do not feel like eating. I also did this preband too. Protein bars are for emergencies only and I prefer real food to either of these....keep up the great info fest...I love it
