On top of that, it took Amazon a month to deliver this book, and I'd already had my surgery so the book was completely useless for most of the information.
She talks about getting ready for surgery, the challenges of nutritional issues after surgery, such as dehydration, temptation to eat too much, malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies; and a little about complications related to the surgery. It includes recipes you can use for each stage after surgery and when on solid foods and they are actually GOOD; things you already have on hand or are not too hard to just pick up at the store on your way home. That is rare in any cookbook! No frou-frou foods anywhere and they are quick cooking recipes! There are tips/advice to eating correctly, recipe variations and how to deal with negative comments and people. I like the best how the book gets a little into a big problem after surgery: Head Hunger and all that comes with it. There is sections on how to start exercise and types to consider and sprinkled throughout the book are "did you know?" boxes that tell you little facts or info that are good to know and also some WLS patients stories.
Overall, it is really a good book and I love it even being 3 yrs post-op, there are some things that I did not know or realize; that opened my eyes to my surgery and expectations. It is a must read book and highly recommend pre-ops and post-ops getting it. For most further out post-ops, you may feel like you know it all and it has no value but it really does, especially to remind us what we are supposed to be doing or to get us back on track to where we were; the recipes are great and to me worth the price of the book alone, because I STILL have problems knowing what to cook and eat. For pre-ops, this is a great tool for you to get the information you are looking for. If you haven't decided, it is a good jumping off point; if you have decided and are just waiting for you surgery date, this is a great read before your date or to take with you to the hospital and read in recovery. Get this book, you will be glad you did.
