I met Jon in November 2008 for my initial surgical consult. He is extremely friendly and upfront. His knowledge and willingness to answer and explain anything regarding surgery was incredible. I would recommend him as a surgeon!rnrnThe staff at UW-Health will put you through the paces pre-surgery, and I'm glad that they did. I now feel 100% ready for surgery. Before all the work I did with the staff (and the work they did for me), I felt 100% ready (but didn’t know I wasn’t). They were able to see what I needed to work on and helped me get there (even if I didn't completely know it). I will admit there were times where I was frustrated and didn't understand (why is this taking so long... sigh). I understand what they were doing now. They were getting me ready to be another successful case!rnrnAnyone out there reading this going through the UW Bariatric Program talk openly and honestly with them. They will help to get you ready to be a success! Trust me!rn

Some great knowledge that I have learned and has helped me a lot:
Take a 10" plate and divide it in half, then divide one of the halves in half.
1/4 (approx 3oz) should be lean meat (chicken, fish, egg)
This should be done for all 3 meals of the day. Snacks include low-fat cheese, yogurt, and fruit.
Below is a couple of days of what I eat:
This worked for me. It is not easy and definitely feels like a diet. I know that in the short run it works, but in the long run, I don't know if I could stay on it without WLS (the reason why I chose the restriction method).
