Hungry between meals? It may be time for a fill

Story Highlights

  • Read over the article below to check if it might be time for a Gastric Band adjustment

If you’re getting hungry less than two to three hours after a meal and find that your weight-loss has slowed down, it may be time for a Gastric Band adjustment.

Be sure first that you’re eating at recommended times, and in recommended amounts you have discussed with your surgeon or dietician.

If you’re eating two large meals a day and skipping breakfast, you’re going to get pretty hungry!

On the other hand, if you’re eating right and are constantly hungry, it’s probably time for a fill (or Gastric Band adjustment).
