None of them can get fresh veggies or whole wheat bread to pass through the band, so they end up eating junky foods instead. You may want to investigate other avenues, like hiring a personal trainer or a lifestyle coach and/or taking a class in nutrition. Also you may want to look into what your insurance will charge to remove the lap-band, because all the people I know that have one want to get it removed, but not one of them can get their insurance to pay for it. The out of pocket cost for the removal is around $11,000 US.
