Last night (14th August, 2014 at 7pm) our Bariatric Portion Plate made it onto prime time television. ‘The One Show’ had a feature on bariatric surgery and how it can help countless diabetics control or eradicate their Type 2 diabetes. The show featured ‘Gary’ who had had a gastric bypass and whose life had been improved beyond measure.
He ably demonstrated his new eating regime and how he controls his portion size with the Bariatric Portion Plate. Other experts went on to explain the cost savings to the NHS and other agencies.
Here at bariatric cookery we know the value of portion control both before and after surgery (which is why we have a Pre-Surgery Healthy Eating Plate and a post-surgery Bariatric Portion Plate). Both, used in tandem, help those who are considering and those who have had surgery, prepare for long-term success. The plates take the guesswork out of food portion size but also food choice. Let the plates guide you with the portion size best for your needs but also in the correct proportion of nutrients for great health.
