The Portion Perfection Bariatric Kit includes the actual portion plate and bowl (melamine/porcelain) that is used in the pictures, the Portion Perfection book for Bariatrics and a Healthy Snack Bible to take to the supermarket.
This kit is recommended by dietitians, doctors, diabetes educators and practice nurses internationally.
Portion Perfection for Bariatrics is low on words and high on pictures so it's easy because seeing is understanding. This book has been designed for those having undergone gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass surgery. Amanda Clark has determined our most commonly prepared and bought meals and foods, and through careful analysis, determined exactly how much to have. She has added tips regarding specific foods that can be a problem for gastric banding and advice from those who have had surgery.
The Healthy Snack Bible - a handy pocket size guide is a quick reference to those 'everyday' and 'occasional' snack foods in 100 calorie (420kj) and 200 calorie (840kj) portions.
The Portion Perfection Bariatric Plate (melamine/porcelain), is a practical tool for those with a gastric band, sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass. The plate shows markings to guide the type of food to make up a main meal and the words around the plate relate to all the behaviours required to get the best food tolerance with your surgery and indicates the approximate aperture of the well adjusted band.
The Portion Perfection Bowl (melamine/porcelain) shows cup measures on the inside so you can pour foods such as cereals straight into the bowl without weighing or measuring first. The bowl works best with the Portion Perfection books which identify the correct portion size of cereals, soups and desserts for your calorie needs. The 1 cup measurement on the Portion Perfection bowl is based on the volume of 250g of water. A standard 1 cup measurement differs from country to country, the Portion Perfection Bowl uses this scientific measurement to ensure accuracy.
WARNING: Melamine is not suitable for microwave heating, or for the serving of very high temperature foods such as fried foods and boiling soups. Melamine Product Care Tips: • Cleaning should take place promptly and on a regular basis to avoid staining. • Do not use harsh or abrasive cleansers, steel wool, or metal pot scrubbers/scouring pads to clean. • Use only plastic pads or plastic-type bristle scrubbers to remove dried food. • Do not use chlorine bleach or chlorine-based products on melamine products. • For best results, use a high-alkaline base solution for regular dishwashing.
