The Bariatric Plate Model (BPM) may be an adequate form of nutritional guideline after obesity surgery.
Create a food guide, based on the Plate Model for nutritional education of bariatric patients.
The Plate Model2 was revised from a model initially suggested for dyslipidemic and hypertensive patients to a new objective: adaptation to bariatric patient who needs effective long-term nutritional education.
The adaptation of the Plate Model considered protein needs with high biological value, as it is the priority in the BPM, followed by vitamins and minerals and lastly the carbohydrates, especially the whole ones.
The BPM is a tool that can be effectively used in nutritional education of bariatric patients.
