Review of Nutrition for Gastric Band Wearers: A Practical Handbook.

The book offers nutrient-dense and easy to make 7-day meal plans for all postoperative stages. The recipes and meal plans include familiar and easy to find ingredients. A unique addition to the traditional recipe offerings is the list with a detailed description of the ultimate 20 foods for the band wearers’ health benefits. The information in this section alone is worth more than the cost of the book.”

Review of Nutrition for Gastric Band Wearers: A Practical Handbook.

“The discussion about fertility and pregnancy after bariatric surgery is one of the distinctive features of this publication. Presented data and information are of great value to the concerned audience as this information is generally unavailable or incomplete.”
