Favorite Cookbooks (and recipe websites)?



Recommended Posts

A friend who got her VSG four years ago recommended the two on the left in this photo, and the third popped up on Amazon and had good reviews so I got it as well. I’m a really big fan of cookbooks, and I’m curious what books or websites have been your favorites for finding interesting recipes post-WLS!

My favorite website ( besides this one) is DietDoctor.com

wonderful Keto recipes and educational videos. I think you can search the recipes for free. I love the educational videos, so I pay the $9.00 monthly fee. If you like the site, you can get a free month, binge on the videos, then quit after your free month.

I really like this one. It's not bariatric, but has loads of healthy choices and provides the nutritional information!

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm adding these to my collection for sure!

Has anyone used skinnytaste.com post-surgery? We cooked those ALL the time before surgery, hoping I can still make some of them work after!

Absolutely, you can! Just pay attention to what stage you're at. You can always add a little extra Protein if you need to!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
