Bariatric Surgery Hospital in Le Havre France
Eating healthy didn’t happen overnight. My doctor gave me a list of foods that I could and could not eat. The list of foods that I could not eat was a challenge. If you ate the wrong thing, or ate too fast, it would come back up.
With the gastric band you can’t eat pasta, rice or bread. That wasn’t too hard for me to get used to. My biggest problem was candy and potato chips. I struggled for months, before I finally got the hang of eating healthy.
Today, a typical day’s meals consist of:
— A spinach, banana, strawberries, pineapple, raspberries and vitamin smoothie, and light yogurt for breakfast
— Grilled chicken or grilled fish and veggies for lunch
— Peanuts as an afternoon snack
— Grilled chicken or fish and veggies for dinner
With my diet firmly in place, I made up my mind that I was going to put my all into exercising. So I got a trainer and began to work out with him.
