Visualizing Post-Weight Loss Surgery Portion Sizes

Part of the Weight Loss Surgery Cookbook For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Your portion sizes will need to decrease after your weight loss surgery. You won't always have a food scale or measuring cups handy, though. This guide helps you visualize appropriate portion sizes, so you can avoid eating too much after weight loss surgery:

  • 1 cup cereal = a baseball

  • 1/2 cup cooked or raw vegetables = a baseball

  • 1 ounce or 2 tablespoons avocado or peanut butter = a golf ball

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, salad dressing, or mayonnaise = a poker chip

  • 3 ounces chicken or other meat = a deck of cards

  • 3 ounces fish = a checkbook

  • 1 slice of bread = a cassette tape

  • 1 baked or sweet potato = a computer mouse
