I recieved this book after waiting several weeks for it's release. I am extremly disappointed! The title is "The Everything Post Weight Loss Surgery Cookbook" but over 75% of the book is about everything PRE-surgery! And to call it a cookbook, what a joke. Out of 22 chapters only 9 are dedicated to recipes. When I read the word cookbook I assume it means that it is full of recipes and kitchen tips and tricks. This book is a complete waste of time and money for anyone who is already "Post" surgery. Those condsidering surgery may get some use out of it but there are several other books that I read before my surgery that I found to be more informational.

I bought this book thinking that I would find even more information than I already had. Not so. Advice wise there was nothing new. For anyone who is even thinking about Gastric Bypass Surgery you can't beat "Weight Loss Surgery for Dummies". Having said that, some of the recipes were pretty tasty.

I am almost 2 years post op (RnY) and I have lost 180lbs. I am ALWAYS on the lookout for ideas and recipes that are good for me and my non-op husband that taste great. I picked this book up at the library and should have thumbed through it there because it was not worth my bringing home. The first recipe I flipped to was Kiwi Mango Smoothie (p. 179) 3 grams of protein and 200 grams of carbohydrates!!! 200g carbs - that is a weeks worth of carbs for what might as well be NO protein. Other recipes include ingredients like BROWN SUGAR -- not substitute!! Be very wary of this book and the recipes in it. While it might give you some ideas to modify with better choices -- you are better off saving your money and just visit WLS cooking blogs.

This is a very disappointing book! I only was able to use 1 recipe out of this book and I am in my 5 week post-op! There are several other great books that list recipes better and tell you how to use the recipes for the different stages.

I'm preparing for my gastric bypass next month. While I already knew some of the information in there, I am always thankful for reminders. I particularly liked the section on what to expect in the weeks and months following the surgery. It may be too basic for some readers who are post-op, but very informative for those of us in the waiting game for our surgery.

I only received the book two days ago, so I haven't tried the recipes. They look like recipes the average person can make without too much difficulty. Because chicken is considered a more easily digestible protein than other meats, there are several recipes with it. I have perused the marinade section alone and can have chicken with a different marinade for many nights before any one recipe gets old.

Overall, I think this is an excellent book especially for those of us who don't want to live on protein shakes and bars forever after surgery. This book is for you if you want a variety of recipes and helpful tips for surviving the post-surgery phase.
