Reccommendations for Support Groups/Therapists in Manhattan
on 7/11/15 11:29 am
I am less than one week away from my VSL surgery - as you can imagine I am extremely nervous & excited. My surgery will be on Long Island, but I would like weekly support closer to work. Does anyone have any suggestions for support groups or perhaps therapists that specialize in food issues in Manhattan?
Thanks in advance!

I work in Soho but anything below 34th street will do.

I found all the protein drinks too sweet and could not stomach them. The only two I could tolerate were:
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate - which I mixed with almond milk. Sometimes adding powdered peanut butter, sometimes adding decaf instant coffee.
Premiere Protein Shake (chocolate)- which I still drink 2 months post-op. Super convenient because it's already mixed AND you can get it at Costco sometimes on sale for $20 a case.
On the chance that you still check in here and are still unsure of support groups,, just call any of the hospitals bariatric offices for their group schedules. They all welcome people regardless of where they've had surgery. There are therapists and you can get a few recommendations from people who attend or when you call. As far as I know, most of the practices have a guest therapist address/anwer questions at support groups from time to time.
