    Highly Recommend - A MUST Read!

    Fantastic book if you've had weight loss surgery or are considering surgery. It's so simple to understand and gave me information I didn't already get from all my other research on weight loss surgery. The recipes are awesome and delicious and give you all the nutrition information you need. I like the eBook format because I can just take my Nook into the kitchen with me, flip to the recipe I want and I'm ready to go!
