Every doctor will give you different instructions. The best advice I can give is to do what they say! I've been following my nutritionist's info religiously and it's working great.

Lots of good advice here. The one thing I would add is that whatever plan of attack you choose, follow the plan and don't test your limits all the time. The first year post surgery is all about developing new healthy habits and retraining your body and mind. Your new stomach just makes those changes easier. Eventually you will be able to eat more, tolerate more, and if you are constantly testing your new stomach you have the potential to fall back into old habits. Just look back at all the posts from folks who are long timers and regained weight. The bottom line is no matter what surgery you choose, it is just a tool to help get you to your goal. There is no substitute for old-fashioned diet modification and exercise.
