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
