You have questions. We have answers.
1. I already have a dietitian at the hospital. Is The Bundle right for me?
Your dietitian can only cover so much in your group and one-on-one sessions with him/her. We know this because we both work at bariatric clinics and we’re only able to give our patients around 60% of what we feel they need to know in the first year post-op. There just isn’t enough time nor appointments! Most of the patients who have purchased the Bundle also have a dietitian. Our Bundle of resources reinforces all of the basics you’ve been discussing with your dietitian and team + WAY MORE.
2. Is The Bundle relevant to all types of bariatric surgery?
Good question! The content in The Bundle is tailored primarily to the sleeve gastrectomy and the Roux-en-Y (gastric bypass) or mini-gastric bypass. If you have a lap band, the majority of the content is still appropriate. Similarly, if you’ve had a duodenal switch (BPD/DS) or SADI procedure, the majority of the content is still relevant, however it will be important to clarify your higher protein needs, higher vitamin needs, and recommended blood work with your surgical team.
3. I have good support in online forums and/or at in person support groups. Why do I need The Bundle?
You will still find a lot of value in The Bundle. Remember that your peers are simply sharing their personal experience. What worked well for them, won’t necessarily work well for you. We also feel that it’s important to reflect on your progress and habits individually in the workbooks we’ve created.
4. I’ve done my research and I’m doing fine. Is it worth purchasing The Bundle?
We’re happy to hear that everything is going smoothly for you! If you’re truly happy with your progress and don’t have any questions, it doesn’t sound like you need any major additional support right now. That being said, extra information and resources never hurt! You likely would still benefit from the “Your tools for success” section as you can never have too many recipes and new meal ideas. Also reflecting regularly with our workbooks will help you stay on track.
5. Can I speak with you before purchasing?
Absolutely! Email us ([email protected]) and we’ll be happy to answer your questions by email or set up a time to speak on the phone.
