Hi Cupcake and welcome to our little gang of friendly ‘voices’.

Go ahead and ask anything you like – no matter how obvious or simple you might think it is. I for one am not in the least bit shy and will answer truthfully any ‘delicate’ matter you need to know about.

The milk diet will be much easier than you expect as it’s only for a limited amount of time and the reason for doing it is so critical. We now refer to it as the ‘liver shrinkage diet’ as that’s exactly what it is for. This in turn makes things much easier for the surgeon to get to your stomach as the liver will be so much smaller and won’t get ‘in the way’ as much. So, knowing that you are making things easier and safer all round will spur you on.

I’m posting two links that will help you to be better prepared and give you fab ideas. One is the superb bariatric cookbooks by Carol Ball and the other is to the Bariatrics Megastore where you can buy almost everything you can think of to make both the milk diet and after the most pleasant it can be (sugar free heaven!)

So, welcome, welcome, welcome and keep posting and reading 😉

Carol Ball also does a free monthly newsletter which you can sign up for. Great holiday and special occasion food ideas 😉
