Those of you who are regular visitors to our website may well have noticed something a little different today – we’ve had a bit of a makeover! Not so drastic that you don’t recognise us or think you’ve clicked through to the wrong place but hopefully enough to see a few changes (and we hope all for the better). And there’s still the odd teething problem to sort out but we’re working through them!
My original aim with the bariatric cookery website , our books and the products we recommend and sell, is from the outset to inform you that ‘food is not something to be feared after WLS. I focus, and want you to recognise, the foods you can eat, not what you can’t; and in doing so help you maintain healthy eating habits for life after bariatric surgery’. We still have the mantra ‘eat right with every bite’ but we’ve expanded our repertoire so that it’s not just all about the food.
It’s a bit of a tall order on occasions for both us and you, since this isn’t just about pre- and post-surgery plans, but also about maintenance, eating out, coping with cravings and emergencies. Add to that cross-over requirements for exercise, good nutritional health (in the form of supplements), special needs relating to co-morbidities like diabetes, and you can appreciate we both have a large and diverse agenda on our shoulders. Our website, and its blog, aims to cover as many of them as possible (with guest features from experts on occasion) and follow the latest research and advances for the here now and also on the horizon.
Since there isn’t in the UK a WLS related or dedicated magazine we have also extended our remit to cover beauty, fashion and fitness related topics that we know are of interest. Hopefully making bariatric cookery a bit of a one-stop-shop for all things weight-loss surgery related. We won’t spread ourselves too thinly but bring you the best of the rest.
We hope you like the slightly ‘new look’; can find your way around the pages more easily; source features and recipes within the categories and search bar (on the homepage); and feel welcome and assured enough to leave a message, comment or query at any time.
Whatever you are looking for, you can be sure of a warm welcome from our small but dedicated team.
