Portion Control for WLS Success
The post-op weight loss surgery diet has a lot of rules, including how much protein to eat, which foods are allowed or not, and how much fluid to consume. Portion control is another important aspect. By knowing exactly how much you are eating of which foods, you can keep your calories and carbs in check to keep weight loss on track.
So many of our meals and snacks are eaten out of the home nowadays, but that does not mean portion control needs to be ignored or made complicated. The BariatricPal Store has tools, such as the Portion Control Bento Lunch Box, Storage Container, and Plate, and 4 Compartment Food and Powder Storage Containers, that are easy and fun to use. They can go anywhere with you to ensure that you are eating the right amount.
Portion-Controlled Lunch Anywhere
The Portion Control Bento Lunch Box, Storage Container, and Plate is like an all-in-one, self-contained set to help you store, transport, and measure foods. It has 2 portion control compartments, a fork and spoon utensil, and a leakproof, air-tight plastic lid. You can even pack your leftovers in it and heat them up in the lunch box the next day!
The Portion Control Bento Lunch Box, Storage Container, and Plate is collapsible for easy storage, and it is dishwasher safe. It is made of silicon and prevents odors from transferring. With this lunch box, you can pack meals such as cottage cheese and fruit or chicken and vegetables, all in portion-controlled quantities.
Portion Control for on-the-Go Snacking
A set of 4 Compartment Food and Powder Storage Containers can be the key to making sure you have whatever snacks you need, whenever you need them. Each compartment has a capacity of 4 ounces, with the top compartment including a funnel to make it easy to pour protein powder into water for your favorite shake.
These 4-Compartment Food and Powder Storage Containers are resistant to leaks and are easy to carry due to the carry handle that can be clipped to a bag. These are dishwasher and freezer safe.
