How much is too much or too little restriction? That's the $1,000,000 question, isn't it? I read a lot of blogs wheneverr I have a spare minute and it is abundantly apparent to me that we all define good restriction differently. Sometimes very differently.
For example I often read people saying that they've felt their restriction loosen up (or they've gotten an unfill) and can now eat bread, pasta, rice, or whatever food was previously out of the question. I would consider myself too full if I couldn't eat those foods. I consider good restriction to be being able to eat ALL foods while having very clear "Full" signals when I've had enough.
The weird thing is that I have a hard time imagining having more restriction than I have. I have had times when I was tighter for various reasons and it was a real problem. I had to have an unfill after my second fill and I was can't-swallow-my-own-spit miserable. Even though I have good restriction now, sometimes I tighten up randomly due to TOM or the weather or stress or the full moon or whatever causes random tightness. I've had days and even weeks where I was really tight and fairly miserable. I've also had issues with acid reflux which is associated with band restriction.
So I'm curious how YOU define your "sweet spot"? What do YOU consider good restriction? What would YOU consider too much restriction?
