    I am a registered dietitian working for a bariatric program in Richmond, VA. We allow our patients to consume wraps. Yes, you can incorporate wraps into your diet. I encourage pts to choose whole wheat or whole grain wraps or the Flat Out bread. Wraps are typically better tolerated b/c they are thinner and not as “soft” and “doughy” as bread. Toasting the wrap allows it to be more thin and crispy in texture and therefore better tolerated. I encourage patients to still limit their intake of breads or bread-like products to only one meal per day. Hope this helps.
