Learning Portion Control After Surgery 

Portion control is an important weight loss tool for bariatric patients. By consuming smaller portions of food, bariatric patients can lose weight and improve their health[1]. While portion control can be challenging, it is important to remember that you are not trying to deprive yourself of food. Instead, you are simply eating less food than you did before surgery. In the beginning, it may be helpful to measure your food to ensure that you are eating the correct portion sizes. Over time, you will become more familiar with portion sizes and will be able to estimate portions without measuring. If you find yourself overeating, don’t be discouraged. Simply recommit to portion control and try again. With time and practice, you will be able to develop healthy eating habits that will help you reach your weight loss goals.
