“As a registered nurse, I recognize how vital it is to have nutritional resources to guide the reconfiguration of eating habits necessary for gastric sleeve surgery. This cookbook is a terrific resource for those who are considering or have had the surgery. It provides tasty, simple, one-pot meals, and even some no-cook recipes. The detailed explanation of dietary needs for fluids, fiber, and protein are clear and helpful. I would even recommend this book for those who have not undergone the surgery but desire to reduce carbohydrates and eat healthy.” —Barbara Anne Waite, Registered Nurse and Author

“Very well structured, designed, and illustrated. This book answers the most common question I hear from patients planning to get a sleeve gastrectomy: ‘Will I be able to enjoy food after most of my stomach is removed?’ With plenty of simple yet creative recipes, this book shows that eating and cooking after the procedure can still be an enjoyable part of life. This book is a must-have for every patient planning to have a gastric sleeve.” —Dr. Sergey Lyass, MD

“Marina has created a resource that will help all those thinking about a gastric sleeve procedure and those recovering from one. It's also great for dietitians to keep as a resource with a list of nutritional deficiencies that may occur after this procedure. Marina's recipes are easy, nourishing, and unique. I love that she has created this step-by-step guide that helps explain how this procedure may nutritionally affect a client and how to smoothly recover and transition after surgery. This book will not only educate you but will bring comfort and someone you can trust into your own kitchen!” —Yasi Ansari, MS, RD, CSSD, Performance and Wellness Nutrition, Health and Lifestyle Content Writer

“I love this book and recommend it to all bariatric patients. It is hands-down the most accurate and complete book of this type out there. As an experienced bariatric surgeon, I cannot emphasize the importance of healthy eating after bariatric surgery. Surgery is only a tool and not a cure-all, and patients who recognize this and make appropriate lifestyle modifications tend to be most successful in the long run. Besides being very informative, the highlight is that this book contains delicious recipes with descriptive pictures specifically for bariatric patients who have undergone anatomical changes. I can assure you that this book will make eating fun again while helping you stay healthy.” —Bobby Bhasker-Rao, MD, FACS, FASMBS

“Full liquid and pureed diets never sounded more tasty and nutritious! With Marina's years of experience as a registered dietitian specializing in GI surgeries, I feel confident in sharing this book as a resource for my clients and colleagues.” —Angelica Agami, MS RD
