Instructions after insertion

  • Eat slowly in a calm atmosphere chewing the food.
  • Reduce food intake by using small plates
  • If you experience acid liquid reflux or bloating stop eating
  • Fraction food into three meals and 1 snack
  • Avoid nibbling
  • Drink at least a litre and a half of water daily
  • Do not drink and eat at the same time. A glass of water half an hour before a meal and one to two glasses of water half an hour after the meal are useful for the purpose of rehydrating yourself and particularly cleaning the balloon. This avoids disagreeable burping which is linked to the stagnation of food around the balloon.
  • Avoid fizzy drinks. Very strong tea and coffee are also not recommended
  • Do not smoke
  • Do not have your evening meal too late. Wait at least two hoursbefore going to bed.
  • Intensify physical activity. Walk for at least 15 minutes a day
