    Default Eating healthy foods at restaurants

    Hi everyone, I’m working on a project and would love some feedback from everyone - especially for those of you that are 1+ year out of surgery:

    1. How often do you eat out or order food delivery from a restaurant?

    2. When ordering food at a restaurant or ordering restaurant food online, how difficult do you find it to know which foods they are offering that are “bariatric friendly”?

    3. When you see the calorie content posted on a restaurant menu, does that influence your decision-making when ordering food? Do you find that to be a helpful resource that you’d like to see posted in all restaurants?

    4. How many of you post-ops are still strict about counting calories, carbs, etc like you were in the beginning? Do you use (or at least would be interested in) a resource outside of the restaurant menu - such as a website, app, ebook, pamphlete - that helps make it easier to select healthy foods from restaurants?

    5. Are you pre or post-op? How long ago did you have WLS?

    Thanks for anyone who submits a response.

    HI jazzygurl. Its an interesting question. I assume you are in the US. I don't find it a problem as I normally go for grilled salmon and veg, or potatoes or chips depending on my mood. I will then bring left overs home for another meal. At some places if they allow me to order off the kids menu I do that as well. I don't fret that much as I see the sleeve as a tool and we still have to enjoy life. I will have a bite out of my husbands starter if it is something that takes me fancy. Sometimes I can eat more than other times. I had my surgery 21/2 years ago.

    I order whatever is green and leafy. It's easy to fall victim to greasy and fat food if you order anything that involves meat.Another factor to consider is that most restaurants like to overprice their dishes and make the quantity of the food way too big for that reason. A classic example is all the American diner where do you get a $14 dish that you cannot even finish if you are a regular size person.So for me to be able to lose weight I prefer to dine in good Italian Restaurant names since the Mediterranean diet is considered one of the best and one of the healthiest for sure.

    Play agree with dining in Italian restaurants. The food is much healthier and the prices are also better as well.
