Master Bariatric Portions: The Bariatric Plate Method Unveiled

Tiny Tummy Tips, Issue #041 -- Your Portion Compass: The Bariatric Plate Method

Ever felt like Goldilocks when it comes to portion sizes?

One day it's too much, the next it's too little, and rarely, it's “just right.” Trust me; you're not alone in this rollercoaster ride.

Mastering the "perfect" portion size post-sleeve, bypass, or band surgery can feel like chasing a moving target. The "right" portion is a constantly shifting puzzle.

Your bariatric portion sizes play hide and seek with you, depending on various factors- including the amount of time that’s passed (or hasn’t passed) since your surgery and the texture of your food. How big your stomach was to start with has influence as well.

(Take a dive deeper into these nitty-gritty details here.)


...I’d like to introduce a powerful ally on your journey:

Your Portion Compass: The Bariatric Plate Method

No counting, weighing, or meticulous measuring needed.

Once you're at least 6 months-1 year post op, use this "Bariatric Plate Method" as a portioning guideline:

• ½ plate of protein
• ¼ plate of green veggies
• 2-4 tablespoons of quality carbs
Use a small plate.

Eat your protein first, veggies next, and if there's room, then have the quality carbs.

Eat Mindfully.

The “right” portion sizes fall into place this way.


The Bariatric Plate Method not only helps you make your plate look like a Picasso, it assures you get the portions you need.
