The REALIZE Adjustable Band divides the stomach into two parts: a small upper pouch and a lower stomach. The upper pouch can only hold about 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of food. For this reason, you will feel full sooner and longer than usual.
To maximize the benefits of the REALIZE Band, you should eat several small nutritionally balanced meals each day. Remember it will still be important to eat foods that are low in calories, fat, cholesterol, and sugar. Also:
Your healthcare team will give you advice regarding the large variety of foods that is appropriate to maintain healthy and balanced nutrition. You can review the REALIZE Patient Guide for more detailed information about the REALIZE Band and the success factors to guide your health transformation.
Ensuring your success with the REALIZE Band requires hard work, dedication to your new lifestyle, and support from your loved ones. As one of the top bariatric surgeons in Maryland, Dr. Averbach and his team have the experience and resources to help you if you choose this weight loss solution.
