Bands and Beer

Two of the "rules" for people who are banded are that we should avoid unnecessary liquid calories and we should also avoid carbonation.  Liquid calories I understand, but as I understand it, carbonation is more an issue of comfort.  Since your stomach is smaller, the air can cause a lot of discomfort.  I suppose enough pressure could probably cause your band to slip.

Either way, I took it really easy on food yesterday so that I could go hang out with a friend and drink a beer last night.  I have to say, the first beer since October-ish was really good.  I got the sampler at The Library again because I love trying all of them.  Needless to say, I managed it just fine.  I'm sure I won't be going crazy on the liquid calories, but I can see myself getting a pint of the Oatmeal Stout every now and then. I highly recommend it!
