In 2015, Dr. Alvarez and his team set out to help more people understand the benefits of vertical sleeve gastrectomy by creating the #AskDrA Show. The show quickly became a popular resource on social media for those not only considering the weight loss procedure but for those who underwent the life changing surgery. The #AskDrA book is a companion resource to the show. It contains over 85 questions and answers guiding you through pre op, post op, nutrition, exercise, supplements and much more. Every chapter contains a "follow along" link to the episode on the show, so you can listen along while reading. "The days and weeks after weight loss surgery can be scary and confusing. It is easy to forget many of the important details your doctor may have told you. This book covers many of the questions"sleevers" often ask regarding topics such as water intake, vitamins, exercise, etc. This book is an awesome reference for gastric sleeve-related questions. I highly recommend this book." - Tricia Pretty O'Neill "The #AskDrA Book is a wonderful resource, as it serves to answer the majority of questions facing the Gastric Sleeve surgery patient. I would go as far as saying it's a great way for Dr. Alvarez to reassure all of us "sleevers" who occasionally have questions along the way." - Amy Linskie The #AskDrA Book is an easy to read question and answer resource guide that helps patients discover the benefits of living with their new sleeve and maintaining their weight loss goals after gastric sleeve surgery. In this book you'll discover frequently asked and not so common questions that patients and those who want to know more about the weight loss procedure are curious about. Here's just few... *If all your levels are good, do you still need to take vitamins daily? *What to buy before and after surgery to be prepared? *Is there one "superfood" that you recommend I put into my diet? *How do I know that I am a candidate for a resleeve? *What is the maximum amount of protein we should consume in a day? *How long do we have to wait before drinking alcohol? *How important is it on phase 1 clear liquids to get protein in? *Is it normal to lose much hair after surgery? *How much do I need to worry about gallstones after sleeve surgery? *Is it normal to have issue with acne after surgery? *What vitamins are recommended post operation? *Is it normal to break out in unexplained hives after surgery? *What is Dumping Syndrome? *When can I go into a hot tub? *Should we have our flu vaccine before or after our surgery? *Will we need plastic surgery after the gastric sleeve? *I just started chemo and radiation this week. Will this damage my sleeve? ...and many more. "This book is one I could not put down. As I was reading the book I kept noticing I would set a goal to read 2-3 chapters and before you know it I could not stop! This is an amazing read for anyone pre and post op for gastric sleeve surgery." - Brandi Carter "A fantastic resource no matter how far out you are from VSG surgery. The #AskDrA Book gives us the information we need when we need it." - Brenda Wooleu"

In The Weight Loss Surgery Coping Companion, Dr. Tanie Kabala assists weight loss surgery patients- many of whom have a long history of using overeating as a coping mechanism- in identifying healthy, new strategies for coping with challenging feelings and emotional eating. With insight and sensitivity, Dr. Kabala leads readers through exercises that help them develop strategies for coping with anxiety, depression, anger, loneliness, identity confusion, and the compulsion to overeat- feelings common to the post-surgery period. Recognizing that emotional eating often leads to re-gain after surgery, Dr. Kabala provides two detailed, mindfulness-based strategies for overcoming emotional eating, The Nourish Technique and the COPE Technique. Packed with quotes from actual patients, this book allows readers to recognize that their challenges are shared by many members of the weight loss surgery community. Readers walk away with a personalized coping guide that can be used not only during the post-surgery period, but also for a lifetime. "As a surgeon specializing in weight loss, I have found that much of my patients' success is attributed to what happens outside the operating room. The importance of lifestyle changes, behavior modification, and mindful eating cannot be understated. Dr. Kabala's book is a recipe for success. We give a copy to all of our patients, and have seen a measurable benefit in those patients who use it- not only in their total weight loss, but in their satisfaction with and longevity of their weight loss." -Marc A. Neff, MD, FACS, Bariatric Surgeon "I have seen my weight loss patients have extreme success after reading Dr. Kabala's book, and have found that patients who read it are more apt to comply with necessary changes to make their health journey a safe, successful one. I recommend Dr. Kabala's book to all my patients and will continue to do so!" -Cheri Leahy, RD, RDN, Registered Dietitian "As a psychologist, I unfortunately see individuals who have endured the challenge of weight loss surgery only to gain the weight back, often because they have not addressed the issues and feelings that caused them to overeat and gain weight in the first place. The Weight Loss Surgery Coping Companion is the only book of its kind that helps weight loss surgery patients avoid this pit-fall. With insight and compassion, Dr. Kabala helps readers identify, explore, and then effectively cope with challenging emotions, thereby helping to ensure long-term weight loss success. The book includes thought-provoking questions and writing exercises that I find very helpful to my patients, as well as a wealth of healthy, non-food related, targeted coping strategies. Thanks to Dr. Kabala for writing a thoughtful, sensitive, and practical book that is an excellent tool not only for weight loss surgery patients, but also for support group leaders and psychologists. I use it with my patients and highly recommend it." -Jill P. Weber, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist
