About Eat It Up!

Eat it Up! is the first book incorporating a whole person, mind/body/spirit approach to prevent weight regain in the months and years following weight loss surgery. Each chapter is devoted to a "Center of Balance," explaining obesity's negative impact on every aspect of a person's life. Eat It Up! offers skills and strategies to overcome difficulties following weight loss surgery, resulting in the reward of lifelong happiness and healthy living, free from weight regain.


Written with humor, compassion and a "firm and fair" approach, Eat it Up! is a must-have for the millions who are obese or overweight. Regaining weight in the months and years following bariatric surgery is a devastating reality — one that can be prevented.
