Eating Out Tips For After Bariatric Surgery

You can enjoy quality time with family and friends and attend get-togethers at most of your favorite restaurants after bariatric surgery. While we do suggest trying to limit how often you eat out, it’s equally important to enjoy your life with friends and family! 

When you have your nutrition goals and health in mind, it may require a bit of creativity with your order.

Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your dining out experience without all the guilt and worry about sabotaging your goals.

Do your best not to compare what you’re ordering to the other people at your table. Your stomach is about 80% smaller, so your food choices and eating habits will look different. 

Life after surgery doesn’t have to limit your social experiences. But it’s also important to keep in mind that eating out with family and friends isn’t just about the food that is served. It is about the conversations, relationships, and connections you make.
