Book Overview

Most gastric bypass patients have spent their lives eating vast quantities of the wrong foods (which is how they ended up on the operating table in the first place) and need to be taught how to eat healthily. This cookbook offers 200 recipes tailored to their needs - low-fat, high-protein, nutrient-dense dishes.

Practical and motivational tool

The number of people who have undergone bariatric surgery is growing. Now this group has an excellent resource to help them overcome the monotony of post-op meal plans by adding variety and flavor to foods without causing discomfort after eating. The recipes stand out for their emphaisis on ethnic cuisines, attractive photographs and useful nutrition information, especially in the author's notes on selected recipes. I'd also recommend this book to those considering gastric bypass surgery. The recipes encourage the home chef to address basic challenges such as modifying fats and controlling portions, all needed skills for making lasting lifestyle change.

The Best Ever!

I have been a nurse for over 30+ years and have come in contact with several weight-loss surgical patients. Probably the most asked question is "what can I eat?" For years, people have had to depend on their doctor and/or dietician to guide them back into an eating regime. This book if for every weight-loss surgical patient and I also believe it to be for anyone looking to follow a low calorie, low fat diet. The written information is all inclusive and the pictures are mouth watering. I will be recommending this book to all the patients that I come across that will benefit from this knowledge and presentation. It's like having your own personal dietician and culinary expert right in your kitchen. Now if a cook just came with it.....

Terrific Book

The recipes are great, with great photos, also not just standard fare, but some items I wouldn't have thought of. The Pita Pizza is really yummy. The information was great too, I like that it tells you at what stage you can eat which recipes. I found it gave me good things to look forward to. Loved this book!

a gem

This is a great book to help you build variety into your diet after weight loss surgery. For a while after weight loss surgery it seems that you are condemned to a life of bland food with no texture and this book effectively dispels that myth and provides you with great, tasty options.

Recipes for Life After Weight-Loss Surgery: Delicious Dishes for Nourishing the New You (Healthy Liv

A weight loss surgery cookbook of this caliber (and written by a Registered Dietitian with extensive experience in bariatric surgery)is long overdue! It's great for people who are looking for more variety with their meals. I have purchased three books so far for myself and others. What a great idea for a gift or a raffle! There are too many great recipes to mention but one favorite is the Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Spanish Smoked Paprika. Almost all of the recipes have a photo (of framing quality) which enhances this book immensely. A big "hats off" to Ms. Furtado and Ms. Schultz for a super job!
