Gastric Band Facts / Answers and Questions
You should introduce yourself to a normal healthy diet gradually after a fill. This is because there is localised swelling around the band caused by the adjustment which is normal. For this reason you should take fluids such as soups and protein drinks for 24 hours after the fill. Then move onto soft blended food, and then after another 24 hours introduce your normal diet. Remember quantity, density and texture of foods.
