Bariatric Cookery Books
‘Return to Slender’ is the UK’s first, and to date only, bariatric cookery book written specifically to help those who have undergone weight-loss (bariatric) surgery. Written by Carol Bowen Ball, a gastric bypass patient herself and prolific food writer, it has been developed to nourish, feed and inspire those whose diet now has to make every bite count!
Packed full of practical advice on stocking up with the best ingredients; tips on food preparation, cooking and serving; WLS savvy on food supplements, fluids and special bariatric-friendly foods; it also has over 70 recipes to ensure you eat right with every bite.
Special sections and recipe colour coding ensures that the bariatric cook follows the 3 food stages and plans from early post fluids to mid-stage soft foods to finally ‘eating for life’.
The easy-to-prepare recipes from breakfast through to pudding are perfect for WLS patients, regardless of procedure, but also for their families too. All focus on getting the nutrition you need and limit the high sugars and fats you don’t.
Countless bariatric professionals and patients now recommend this book to others as the best UK book and resource for eating after WLS.
