Restaurant Card Bariatric Surgery
My surgeon gave me a laminated card similar to that, with his office info on the reverse side, so it looks a bit more official. I always carry it in my wallet, but I've only used it one time (when the Chinese buffet gave me the child's price). At other places, I haven't been questioned when I ask to see a kid's menu.
If you go to Disney World, those cards are golden. At the (expensive) buffets, they will give you the child's price instead.
What did you eat yesterday (or today)?

I need to get it laminated...I may get an 'extra' one next time I go back for a follow-up visit.
I have yet to use mine....the few times I've gone out I've usually ordered something like a scrambled egg or a salad....or 'picked' off of someone else's plate. I still can't eat a child sized meal...or they are things that I couldn't/wouldn't eat anyway...
But I think it's a great idea, just in case...

Hubby likes to go to the same Chinese buffet brunch every Sunday, so they know us. I wasn't eating anything for many months after surgery, but recently started getting a few things like soup or a small piece of chicken.
They decided I don't eat enough to even bother charging for a second buffet!
