Does anyone get the late night hunger? How is that controlled?

Does anyone get the late night hunger? How is that controlled?

So I can have a very fulfilling dinner and for some reason I wake up in the middle of the night super hungry, as if I had not had diner. Sometimes its like at 3 am and my stomach growls as if I have went way past my meal time. How can I control these feelings?

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

Mine really isnt a question as much qs a statement. The Band does NOT reduce the size of your stomach!! It reduces the size of the opening to your stomach. Making smaller bites feel like much larger bites... your 'pouch' abive the band is not to be 'filled' as a stomach would; it is to slow your eating down.... banded since 2013.

How difficult is the diet, for gastric sleeve surgery, to stick to?

How difficult is the diet, for gastric sleeve surgery, to stick to?

Ive researched the surgery quite extensively and the diet is extremely minimal. Which i understand. However i love food. The textures. The smell. And of course the taste. Im scared that i would not be able to stick with such a minimal diet for a year. Pluss once the weight is lost how does one not regain the weight once a regular diet is reintroduced? I dont know anyone personaly whoes had this done. Im afraid its the only option i have left.
