Bariatric surgery is a big deal!

Our comprehensive FAQ-style guide answers more than 80 of the most common and crucial questions we—as bariatric 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!

What are readers saying?

“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!!!”

Lisa and Monica are expertly placed to understand the huge challenges of weight-loss surgery patients post-op. I shall recommend this book to all my website visitors to use alongside the advice they are given by their own bariatric teams. I only wish this book had been available when I had my own surgery in 2009!”
Carol Bowel Ball

Food Critic, WLS in 2009,

I’m a firm believer that in order for WLS to be truly effective, it must be accompanied by a change of lifestyle.  I love that your book embraces that idea without forcing it on the reader.  It shows by example and instruction, rather than merely stating it.

“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!”

“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!”
