Fall 2004 - Patient Newsletter


Since becoming a part of the weight loss surgery community, particularly at Tufts-New England Medical Center I have been searching for a way that I could give back to the community that has so caringly given itself to me when I needed it most. When the idea of the newsletter was announced, I felt that this was a great medium for me to start returning the generosity. I have been in the food industry for over 10 years not including a lifetime of doing research and comprehensive taste testing of almost every edible morsel on the planet. It was my love of eating and passion for food that drove me into the food business, but also ultimately what drove me to Tufts-New England Medical Center.

Since having surgery, my relationship with food has gone through several stages from pure hatred (when it made me sick after surgery), to what it is now...a passion and appreciation that I struggle to keep in balance. My love of cooking has returned, but I have made the personal decision to use this passion to come up with WLS friendly recipes for the various stages particularly for stage 5 and maintenance rather than the foods that contributed to my obesity.

This newsletter, as you have and will be told repeatedly, is supposed to be YOUR newsletter. If there is anything you would like to know how to make in a healthier manner or you have ingredients that you need new ideas for, please email me at [email protected] and I will email you back some suggestions and possibly print the recipes in the next newsletter. I may be able to help you plan menus that will work with your personal program and schedule, using the guidelines set forth by your nutritionists. There are countless possibilities for this section of the newsletter and it is all up to you! If there is something that you would like to see or learn about we are here for you.
