Enter Dr. Vuong's book. Without it I truly - no joke - could not have done this journey even to the extent that I have. I luckily found it through searching Amazon, ordered it, and spent the month before surgery reading and re-reading it. Suddenly I had informed questions to ask! Suddenly I felt like I'd indeed have a normal life when the initial stages were over - but not the SAME life. Yes, I"d have an ice cream with my son again, or tapas in Spain. But no, I'd not revert to doing all the same things that had brought me to the miserable point of surgery in the first place.
Dr. Vuong is a gastric patient's best friend, no kidding, and I"m not a relative :) . His little video shorts are wonderful, his seemingly simple (and poorly named) "Weight Loss Surgery Success" a useful, concise guide to thinking differently (as opposed to the usual self-involved tomes on "mindfulness" and eating that spend much of their text focusing on the author). I've just learned about "periscope" on which he apparently gives broadcasts, and i intend to follow him on that.
He's more than just informational. He's hopeful, he's kind, he's clear, and he gives action points rather than theory. Do this! It'll help!
I'm am admittedly a bit emotional - first days of gastric surgery are not the easiest. But I honestly feel that had I not found Dr. Vuong's book, I'd be in a world of confusion and unhappiness right now. How very lucky we are that he wrote this.
Dr Vuong, thank you. You've helped more than you can possibly know.
The difference, I believe, lies in Dr Duc Vuong's infectious enthusiasm for good food.
Food is what preoccupies us before bariatric surgery -- and it sure as shootin' is on our minds after bariatric surgery.
The point is to make a new start, and to dump the bad old ways.
This is what Dr Vuong teaches us to do.
As a Vietnamese, and obviously a very gifted home cook as well as a fine surgeon, he is familiar with cooking high-protein meals using the best fish and seafood -- and I cannot imagine my post-operation diet without fish and seafood. It really is a key ingredient, full of protein, yet light on the bad stuff.
His overall emphasis on quality fresh food strikes a real chord with me. I believe that many overweight people -- well, me for a start -- do not think too much about food, but rather, too little, cramming processed junk into our mouths without considering or even tasting what we are devouring.
To appreciate food -- and understand what it contains -- is the first step on the road to health.
This is not to say that this excellent book contains nothing but recipes, far from it. But the advice on eating is so good, and so important, that I heartily recommend this book for that alone.
At 70lbs down, I have to thank Dr Vuong for writing this.
Easy to read, the book takes the patient in the journey from the operating room to the lifestyle of the fastest growing weight loss operation.
The book provides some easy rules for the patient to follow- all of which I agree with. It also provides added inspiration for success.
I have ordered copies of this book for my patients who undergo this operation
