To get the calories right in this yummy recipe (350 per meal for a woman) from it’s current 700 cals per serve:
- halve the portion of salmon to the thickness of your palm 200g is about hand size.
- don’t use the shredded coconut garnish or just 1 tsp each, and
- have 1/6th of the rice and glaze, not ¼. That’s about ½ cup rice.
This should be plenty for a band and too much for a sleeve until over 1 year.
It’s important to realise you can eat gourmet foods, you don’t have to suffer boring tasteless food for the sake of weight control. If this serve is too small, add a side dish of veggies or salad or cook more bok choy. If that’s still not enough, you need a band fill! Unless you are in weight maintenance phase, where you could afford to eat approx 50 % more.
