Sorry, I don't have any experience with that, and you should follow what your doctor says. But I wouldn't be able to do that either (I really need my snacks to keep my blood sugar stabilized and to support my exercise), so if it were me, I'd have a very specific discussion with my doctor (although you may have already done this) about exactly what I'm doing, what I would be eating, and what my needs are. He/she may be able to customize that general rule for you given your specific situation.
Here are some links that may help arm you:
Some other lap banders experienced the same thing: http://www.lapbandtalk.com/topic/74766- ... no-snacks/
This page is written by a nutritionist: http://www.lap-band-surgery-site.com/di ... and-2.html
You could always seek a second opinion from another doctor or a nutritionist if you feel that such a strict rule just won't work for you.
