Format: Paperback
This was the very first purchase I made on Amazon and I knew that I wouldn't be disappointed! The "For Dummies" series of books is never a let down and this one was no exception! I am getting the surgery done in a few months from now and this book is very informative with lots of great tips and ideas for before and after surgery! It has a bunch of great recipe ideas with planned food menus including colored pics. It is very detailed with a step by step account of what to expect!
I highly recommend this book to past, present and future weight loss patients and also to all of the doctors, surgeons and dieticians out there in the medical world!!! It is a wonderfully fun read. A must have tool to own on your road to a healthier lifestyle!!!
I am so happy that I bought this!!!

Unfortunately the recipes provided are large, if I was making for a family it might be okay, but as a single person I'm going to have to alter the recipes to be able to feed my new pouch.

A lot of the the recipes are interesting and are easy to make. I like that it has a lot of information on bariatric surgery included since I am pre-surgery.
