Weight loss surgery gives you the benefit of having restriction surgically created. This restriction will vary the further out from surgery you get. You will find that you can eat more food. Portion control tools may be helpful to keep you on track or get you back on track. Here are 15 portion control tools for weight loss surgery patients that I love.
15 Portion Control Tools
Precise Portions makes the only portion control glasses that I have found.
Many portion control plates can look like kids plates. Precise Portions has really nice plates that look like grown-up plates.
As you can see above Precise Portions carries a bowl to match their plates that are really nice. The Portion Perfect bowl has measurements from ¼ cup to 1 ½ cups. Not as stylish as the Precise Portions, but functional nonetheless.
I don't regularly recommend that patients change their flatware, however, when someone is struggling with portion control and/or eating too fast I do suggest using smaller utensils. Kids flatware is a great option, but most adults won't want to eat with a fork that looks like it belongs to a 3-year-old. There are two different sets of flatware available for bariatric patients: Stainless Steel Kids Flatware and the Health Fx Mindful Eating Portion Control Flatware.

Obviously, all the tools I have shown you so far are helpful when you are eating at home, but what if you need to back your meals? Luckily there are tons of options.
