The best way to keep complete control of your diet is to cook meals at home, and for this reason, you should prepare your own food as often as possible after weight loss surgery. However, all of us sometimes find ourselves eating in a restaurant, and it is almost always possible to do so without straying from the guidelines of your bariatric diet.
When you find yourself dining out after Bariatric Surgery, keeping tips like these in mind will help you choose something that meets your dietary needs:
10. Browse the menu online.
These days, many restaurants post full menus on their websites. If you know the restaurant you’re going to, head online before you go to look for something that will work for you.
9. Check the whole menu.
Don’t limit yourself to the entrees—you may find a healthier option in the appetizer menu. Though the small portions of the kids’ menu may seem sensible, these items are often too high in calories and fat to be good choices.
