{Book Review} The Gastric Sleeve Bariatric Cookbook by Sarah Kent #cookbook #gastriccookbook


Hey everyone!

I am so excited to show you all this great product. All information is located below along with links to the product and, of course, my review. So, let's get into it.

Bariatric Cookbook


The Gastric Sleeve Bariatric Cookbook is the first complete meal plan and cookbook uniquely designed to fuel your body and satisfy your tastebuds after VSG.

A commitment to nutrition is the key to success after having a vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG). During your first 8 weeks post-op, meal planning is essential to make sure you get the nutrition you need. In The Gastric Sleeve Bariatric Cookbook, Sarah Kent—author of the bestselling Fresh Start Bariatric Cookbook—delivers effective meal plans and recipes specifically tailored for your new lifestyle after VSG.

Unlike any other bariatric cookbook on the market, The Gastric Sleeve Bariatric Cookbook approaches your new diet with immediate and long-term dietary needs in mind, to help you get healthier—not just thinner. In the pages of The Gastric Sleeve Bariatric Cookbook you’ll find:

  • 8 weeks of easy meal plans for each of the 4 post-op dietary stages (full liquid, pureed foods, soft foods, general diet)
  • Over 95 protein-packed recipes—many of which yield leftovers for meals later in the week
  • Post-op recipe icons that let you know at which stages you can eat each recipe, providing specific portion information as well

Knowing what, when, and how much to eat after VSG doesn’t have to be stressful. The Gastric Sleeve Bariatric Cookbook makes it easy, healthy, and simply delicious to eat well after surgery and beyond.

My Thoughts

I am preparing to have gastric sleeve surgery by the end of the year so I am looking for alternatives and different ways of eating and what to eat after surgery. While I am making changes now and have been, I know that more changes are to come. This is the first cookbook of this kind that I have had a chance to look at and so far I am very impressed.

This isn't just a cook book but actually packed full of great tips for eating after gastric sleeve and what foods you should totally toss and what foods you can have in their place. For example, toss the processed cheeses and instead have natural cheeses such as cheddar and feta. I love this because that means I can change my favorite foods to fit my new lifestyle.

What I love the most is it goes through what to expect before and even after surgery. It goes step by step in what to eat and the textures of food in which you can begin to add back to your diet after surgery. This is something that when having gastric surgery you need to have and have to go by, so it's great that is included.

It's truly packed with so much great information that I can't even explain it all. It's also put together very well. I can tell a lot of thought and consideration went into the book so that people could understand the information and understand what to do before and after surgery. I know, for me, this is going to be my go to guide from now on.

Now, let's get into the recipes because we know that's what really matters. lol The recipes are wonderful. I love the layout of them and how detailed they are. They make sure you know exactly what you need to go in them, how to make it and then how many fat, calories, etc is going into your body. Each recipe also has serving tips which are great because they explain different things you can do to change the recipes up a bit, which totally come in handy.

The very best part though, about this cookbook, the fact that it's all written in a positive "you can do this" vibe and tone. It's full of encouragement and let's you know that if you mess up, it's totally okay, just shake it off and pick it right up where you left off. Love that.
