Make meal times easier to negotiate portion-wise by using the Bariatric Portion Plate to accurately portion and proportion your food with the Bariatric Portion Control Cutlery Set to manage your bite size and eating speed. A dynamic duo that takes away much of the guesswork!
The Return to Slender Bariatric Portion Plate is a high-quality bone china plate with discreet indicators to ensure that foods eaten after bariatric surgery are in the correct proportions. It has been designed to help all weight-loss surgery patients (regardless of procedure) to eat the right quantity and proportions of food so that they achieve a healthy balanced diet.
The plate is a 22-cm/81/2 inch bone china rimmed plate that has a recommended loading area of some 15 cm/6 inches. It is dishwasher- friendly on a short/gentle cycle and microwave-safe. Every plate comes with general advice on portion control and is also supplemented with recipes and recommendations on www.bariatriccookery.com for some very tasty menu options.
The ‘Lite Bite’Bariatric Portion Control Cutlery Set (in association with Bariatric Cookery) is a beautifully designed, contemporary, reduced-sized, premium-quality, stainless steel 18/10, 3-piece cutlery set designed to slow down and control bariatric post-op eating.
The set includes a serrated knife, 4 pronged fork and dessertspoon that has been carefully calibrated for good balance in your hands. The serrated knife will easily cut even the toughest meat, fruit or vegetables.
Not a children’s cutlery set, but a stylish, reduced-sized adult place setting, it has been developed to encourage mindful controlled eating by promoting the eating of smaller mouthfuls of food at mealtimes.
Why not just use kiddie cutlery? Children’s cutlery is often clunky, over-sized and decorated with child-like motifs and more often than not the fork area is only slightly smaller than a regular fork – so you won’t eat less.
‘Lite Bite’ Bariatric Portion Control Cutlery is proportioned for adult-use and won’t look out of place at any dinner table or workplace eating area.
The slower eating approach and smaller portion ‘bites’ of food, offers control and management of a bariatric meal. It is recommended by bariatric professionals as the best post-surgery eating regime, following the 20:20:20 approach.
It promotes the ‘eat right with every bite’ philosophy that all weight-loss/bariatric surgery patients are encouraged to follow pre-surgery but especially post-op for successful weight-loss and maintenance.
The set will help all WLS patients regardless of the procedure they have had (band, bypass, sleeve or revision) since the fork and spoon holds about 50% less than conventional implements. It can also be useful as a training aid to those pre-op about what to expect post-surgery.
Portion control (along with good food choice) is considered one of the most effective ways to lose weight, maintain that loss and prevent weight regain. The ‘Lite Bite’ Portion Control Cutlery Set helps to take the guess work out of this.
The cutlery is made from 18/10 premium-quality stainless steel. The knife and fork are about 15.5 cm/6 inches long and the spoon is 13 cm/5 inches in length. It is dishwasher-friendly. Every set comes with some general advice on portion control from Bariatric Cookery.
