Why this plate? Because it is much more than a smaller plate with lines – the bariatric plate holds a measured portion.
The Portion Perfection Bariatric Plate, is a practical tool for those with a gastric band, sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass. The plate shows markings to guide the type of food to make up a main meal and the words around the plate relate to all the behaviours required to get the best food tolerance with your surgery and indicates the approximate aperture of the well adjusted band.
There’s an instruction booklet with the plate that describes how much of the plate to fill and how deep to fill it.
You might also like to purchase the portion bowl because not everything you eat goes on a plate – think cereal and snacks, and there’s a Bariatric Portion Perfection book with pictures of realistic portions for your bariatric needs.
