|Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery,
is a surgical procedure designed to help people decrease their food intake and
change the way their body handles food -- the result being significant weight
loss. Some 750,000 people have bariatric surgery every year -- this book offers
comprehensive information on obesity, weight loss procedures and dietary
The Complete Weight-Loss Surgery Guide and Diet Program provides comprehensive information on the many procedures that are currently available in North America, from the widely known Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band (LAGB) to Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) and the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (gastric bypass). As importantly, it looks at the causes of obesity, obesity-related problems and standard treatments. All the risks and benefits associated with the surgery are examined, including recovery, potential long-term problems and risks, and measures of success.
Because diet, portion size and lifestyle are integral to ensuring a successful surgical outcome, the second component of the book provides the resources for healthy eating, nutrition, supplements and making positive changes in lifestyle. To further ensure success, 150 recipes have been included that have been specially created with weight-loss patients in mind. Not only are they delicious, but they are nutritionally sound and designed to accommodate the techniques and diet stages required after surgery.
This book is ideal for anyone considering weight loss surgery, who has had the surgery or who is looking for a dietary and lifestyle program/strategies that have been created specifically to meet these unique requirements.
