The Complete Guide to Weight Loss Surgery: Your Questions Finally Answered

“I just finished it from cover to cover. It’s very in-depth but not too overwhelming. It also has some fantastic tips I plan on personally using. Fantastic job!!!” – Alex Brecher, Founder & CEO of BariatricPal  

“Lisa and Monica are expertly placed to understand the huge challenges of weight-loss surgery patients post-op. I only wish this book had been available when I had my own surgery in 2009”. – Carol Bowen Ball,

“I have devoured this book! I’m glad that there’s no reference to ‘dieting’ or total number of calories/day, I didn’t have surgery to be on a diet for the rest of my life. This book totally reinforces that message. There’s a LOT of information out there and it can get confusing. This book is a God send!”  “K”, WLS in 2016
