Over 140 Delicious Low-Fat, High-Protein Recipes
Recipes for the Weeks, Months and Years After Surgery
Foreword by William B. Inabnet, MD
Meredith Urban-Skuro, MD, RD, Consulting Nutritionist
In April 2003 Patt Levine underwent "Lap-Band" gastric surgery, one of the primary bariatric surgeries being widely
practiced today. As a lifelong foodie, she was expecting the worst when her surgeon's nutritionist handed her dietary
guidelines to follow post-surgery, and she was right. With her decades of cooking skills, she immediately set out to
devise low-fat dishes that would be just as delicious pureed and chopped as they would be served whole. As an added
problem, she wanted to cook for her husband at the same time. This first-ever cookbook for the hundreds of thousands who
are lining up for bariatric bypass surgery is proof that it can be done. With collaborator Michele Bontempo-Saray, the
author has created 125 recipes that contain no added sugar, are very low in fat, and get their carbohydrates almost
exclusively from fruits and vegetables. Each recipe includes specific guidelines for preparation of the dish for every
stage of the eating programs for Lap-Band, gastric bypass, and Biliopancreatric Diversion Duodenal Switch (BPD-DS)
patients, as well as suggestions for sharing meals with those who have not gone through gastric surgery. Creative
recipes cover every meal and food-breakfast and brunch, soups, vegetables, main courses, and sweet indulgences.
