Rediscover the pleasure of food after weight-loss surgery

Weight loss surgery doesn't have to mean giving up your favorite recipes for good. This up-to-date bariatric cookbook puts a surgery-safe twist on foods with 100+ healthy, comforting recipes that are simple enough to make every day, so you can sustain your long-term weight-loss and health goals.

Learn how to implement the right portions, increase protein in your meals, and use the most nutritious ingredients, so your food is as good for you as it is delicious. With nutritional information for every recipe, keeping track of your fluid and calorie intake is easy.

The Fresh Start Bariatric Cookbook is a new nutrition plan for your new body, featuring:
  • Options for every stage—Each recipe is marked with an icon that tells you which stage of post-operation it's appropriate for: full liquid, puree, soft foods, or general diet.
  • Flavorful recipes—Enjoy comfort foods like Chocolate-Peanut Butter Smoothies, Turkey Breakfast Burritos, Baked Salmon with Barbecue Seasoning, Low-Carb Cheeseburger Casserole, and much more.
  • Foods for every body—These dishes are crafted to meet your needs after gastric sleeve surgery (or vertical sleeve gastrectomy), laparoscopic adjustable gastric band placement, and more.

Enjoy some of your favorite foods while staying on the path to better health and weight loss with this bariatric cookbook.

"The recipes are unique and bariatric-friendly. Immediately after surgery, I was panicking about what I could and couldn’t eat. Having this cookbook has given me a tasty variety of healthy foods I can cook."—Jenn G.

"I just had my gastric sleeve surgery two weeks ago and have been looking for books that have good advice for post-surgery meal plans. I feel like when it comes time for me to advance into eating solid foods, I will have a good understanding of how to ensure I will be eating great tasting food that will satisfy my new dietary needs for life. I find all of her recipes and tips to be very inspiring!"—Penny E.

"I was having some digestive issues and needed to go on a diet of softer foods, so I tried out this cookbook. I wasn't expecting it to be all that great, but I was pleasantly surprised. This cookbook would be good not just for those after bariatric surgery, but also for folks who are dieting or watching calories."—Jessica
