    I want to start off by saying I am non-medical professional. This means that I am writing this review based on my personal opinions. I love that the author refers to the team in this book, (the team meaning doctors, nurses, dietitians and you). If you are planning to have this surgery or have had it, all those people are a part of your team and want you to be healthy and successful. She even suggests taking her book to them, (more than once as you progress through the first months of surgery), s I want to start off by saying I am non-medical professional. This means that I am writing this review based on my personal opinions. I love that the author refers to the team in this book, (the team meaning doctors, nurses, dietitians and you). If you are planning to have this surgery or have had it, all those people are a part of your team and want you to be healthy and successful. She even suggests taking her book to them, (more than once as you progress through the first months of surgery), so they can help you decide what is best for you. She talks a lot about bariatric surgery and what you can expect. Not everyone has the same experience so some things may or may not apply to you. It is good to know about them though. I like that she also talks about supporters and critics. You will most likely have both in your life. I think there is a lot of good information in the first chapter. If you are in the thinking stage, you may want to read this chapter at the library. The recipes in the book are easy to make. I love the icon system. The author uses icons to note which recipes are best for what stage in your recovery you are in. I think that feature is extremely helpful. There is a list of foods to avoid the first month or so after surgery that I think is very good to know beforehand. The recipes start off with a small chapter dedicated to early post-op eating. If you are in the thinking stage look this over too. It can help you decide if you are ready for this life changing surgery. The rest of the recipe chapters are divided the traditional way of food types and includes a chapter on vegetarian dinners. Tips for eating out come after the recipes and the author includes some resources that you may find handy. The recipes are easy enough to follow and consist of fairly easy to find ingredients. You probably already have most of them. I liked her homemade alternative to protein shakes. Protein shakes can eat up your food budget. Having an inexpensive alternative is awesome. The recipes are tasty enough to be enjoyed by the whole family. The table of contents is very user friendly. Tap on the chapter and it will show you the recipe titles so you can easily find the one you want. Tap on it and your there. A sample of recipe titles that made me go, "YES!", are: Dreamsicle Protein Shake, Mini Egg Muffins with Turkey Bacon, Slow Cooker Boston Baked Beans, Sweet Potato and Black Bean Soup, Szechuan Shrimp Zoodle Bowl, Baked Chimichangas with Chicken and Fresh Salsa, Naked Pulled Pork, (with creamy coleslaw) and Healthier Fudge Brownies. I'm not going to tell you whether or not you should get this surgery. I'm reviewing a cookbook not debating pros and cons. Your decision should be yours with help from your medical team and the people in your life who you think should be a part of it. I do think this book can help you with information and a look at the kind of food you will be able to enjoy. I think the recipes are good for most people to enjoy. If you decide against the surgery, you can still use the recipes.

    I really like this book. Things I love: No strange ingredients that I will have to make special trips for, and the flavor profile I see repeated seems sort of Tex - Mex. Easy to follow steps in a numeric format. The NO additional salt! Thank you. Thank you for using spices and ingredients to enhance the flavor and keeping the sodium content low. That says it all in my opinion. A true nutritional professional realizes that SO many ingredients in our diet have so much added sodium that adding more I really like this book.

A true nutritional professional realizes that SO many ingredients in our diet have so much added sodium that adding more is just unnecessary. I also appreciate the recipes in the back instead of purchasing seasonings that WILL add additional sodium. Thing I don't like: Having the ingredients written in blue makes them SO difficult to read, especially at a quick glance.
