    "A wholesome approach"

    I loved this book and found it to be very positive and informative. Besides the information on the surgery and practical post-surgery suggestions for food and exercise, the author invites the audience to dig inside for a glimpse of his/her own emotions and other issues to make sure the weight loss is permanent.

    "Great Advice on Healthy Living - Surgery or Not"

    I am considering and researching getting WLS. I found Dr. Vuong's advice to be very helpful for even people just looking to make healthy changes to their lifestyle. The narrator has a pleasant voice and conveys Dr. Vuong's enthusiasm for healthy eating and changing people's attitudes for it. Honestly, whether you are considering gastric sleeve or another WLS, or just want some solid tips and help keeping a positive attitude for changing to a healthy life style, I highly recommend this book.
