If you were only going to purchase one book related to WLS, THIS SHOULD BE IT!!
This book answers every question you need to know about weight loss surgery. It is fair to all the surgeries, even talking about the ones that aren't as popular or well known, such as the VBG and DS. It has great recipes that I can't wait to try after my surgery. There are chapters about how to use your tool correctly for the rest of your life... this book is a MUST HAVE for anyone considering any type of weight loss

I love this book..... It's been a decade since my surgery, but this was so helpful!!! I think anyone thinking of getting it should read this first though, life doesn't magically change just because you are smaller!!! So make sure that it isn't a choice based on looks!!! It should be a health option for people who can't lose weight and will die unless that happens. I wish I had done it through WW.

Good information in this book but does not discuss the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy except on one page. The new edition I believe discusses that surgery. There are some good recipes in this one that I will definitely have to try.

I'm sure I will pour over this book several more times. It includes recipes, questions to ask your surgeon, lists of foods to avoid, list of items to bring to the hospital...pretty much covers WLS from A to Z.
