If you’re morbidly obese, you are not alone.

When Food is Your Frenemy helps those who are morbidly obese or who struggle with self-image make the necessary changes to live full and healthy lives. Jacob F. Bustos himself was morbidly obese and had to accept the harsh reality that he needed to make a change. He realized that the relationship he had with food was a love/hate relationship. While the bariatric process he underwent was a life-saving procedure, his battle with self-image continued. In 2015, Jacob also underwent a traumatic skin removal surgery that nearly ended his life. During this event, he had a very personal experience with his Maker that affirmed his mission to feed people with healthier options. When Food is Your Frenemy is a life story for those who are struggling to know the real battle that not only Jacob faces, but almost everyone does at some point with food being such a big part of all of our lives. When Food is Your Frenemy is also a cookbook to promote healthy eating with recipes that are not only healthy, but really transform ordinary foods into healthier versions.

This book has brought me an awareness of how a commitment to better health can truly change your life . Jacob Bustos shared his remarkable journey of how he got back to healthy and he totally inspired me! I appreciated his discussion on the various options for surgical weight loss and how he shared both his successes and challenges with the bariatric surgery. People think bariatric surgery is an easy way to lose weight, but Jacob demonstrates that it was not an easy process. His own experience and his encouragement to eat healthier and use portion control made me truly believe that sustained weight loss is achievable! I also really loved the healthy recipes included at the end of the book!
