If you’re planning on undergoing weight loss surgery, have recently had surgery, or are a few years out, this book is for you!
Weight loss surgery is a big deal and there’s so much to know!
Our comprehensive FAQ-style guide answers more than 80 of the most common and crucial questions we—as WLS dietitians—get asked on a daily basis, such as:
- Why is my hair falling out?
- Why are my friends losing more weight than me?
- Why can’t I eat and drink at the same time?
This book is also packed with a ton of practical tips for those tricky and sometimes overwhelming parts of life after surgery. We provide advice for almost everything!
- Difficulty transitioning to solid foods?
- Struggling with digestive issues (i.e. nausea, vomiting, foods getting stuck/blocking, constipation and diarrhea)?
- Unsure of what to eat the first time you eat out?
And so much more!
No more guesswork. Just practical expert advice!
“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, www.bariatriccookery.com
“This is a great book. I wish I had had it before my surgery! It is very useful, easy to read, and full of good insights even for a 9 month post-op person! Thank you!” – Martin Rivest, WLS in 2017
“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
“The book is comprehensive and the dietitians are dedicated and kind. I appreciated all the information so much. A great book for pre-surgery bariatric patients like me. Bravo ladies. I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out and seek help from you. You care about your bariatric patients and it shines through in every page!” – Carolyn H.
