It just makes good sense to use the right portion control size serving spoons.
Your "new stomach" after gastric lap-band weight loss surgery (aka, your "pouch") will only hold ~ 4-8 ounces of food.
Research supports the fact that when we are offered larger portions, we eat more.
And that applies whether you've had gastric band weight loss surgery or not. You are human, right?
As a human being, you're hard wired to eat. That means when there's food in front of your face, you're going to want to eat it (and most likely try to eat it).
And that means that there may be times when you try to eat more than your pouch should have. The consequence of course is that you vomit and/or cause your pouch (and eventually your esophagus) to stretch.
The best way to avoid this temptation is to start with the proper portion sizes in front of you.
If you start off with a smaller portion size, you'll have less to finish!
Use a portion control serving spoon to serve up the appropriate 4 ounce portion size for your pouch. (You may need slightly more, or slightly less, but at least you'll be in the ballpark!)
A great tool to add to your weight loss surgery "tool box" to help assure your success.
