Lap Band: The surgeon puts a band around your stomach, and then your stomach only allows a small amount of food at a time. Yes, you would feel full faster. You will need to follow the instructions they give you after the surgery, though. Also, if you're motivated it's not impossible to exercise while on antipsychotic medications. You could consider working with a trainer and nutritionist. Best wishes.
