The complete nutrition guide for WLS you need for pre, post op and beyond

Wow! Wow! Wow! What a book!

If you are looking for a book that has everything you need to know for WLS and nutrition, then this is the book for you. It is like a guiding hand that will support you through pre op preparation, post op nutrition stages (fluid to soft diet) and beyond into your new healthy life. I love that it also comes with sample menu's to take the guesswork out if time restraints are a factor some days. I also really appreciate that every recipe comes with nutritional information.

Photos are also wonderful. Thank you so much for a fantastic companion in my new life. Worth every cent and more.
