Plano, TX, June 17, 2014 - Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder of the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery, announces the release of the book Weight Loss Surgery: The Real Skinny, a comprehensive guide to bariatric surgery that walks potential patients - and those patients who have already undergone the surgery - through the variety of surgeries available and, most importantly, the lifestyle changes that must accompany these surgeries to achieve true weight loss success. Dr. Nicholson teamed up with author, B.A. Blackwood to create a book that details the truth of weight loss surgery, the importance of overall lifestyle changes, and what is required to realize a long-term healthy weight and overall physical health.
“I have committed my professional life to helping people lose weight, get healthy, and extend their lives as a result,” says Dr. Nicholson. “Part of what my team provides is emotional support to our patients by providing them with real information; a “map” of sorts to help navigate them through the weight loss surgery experience. This book speaks to this commitment to our patients - past, current, and potential - and is a culmination of all that I have learned about weight loss surgery and true weight loss over the years - both through research and hands-on experience.”
Weight Loss Surgery: The Real Skinny speaks to weight loss surgeries in a procedural manner in terms of what to expect in each of the surgery options. But - most importantly, according to Dr. Nicholson - it speaks to the misunderstandings regarding surgery and how to achieve true weight loss and overall health - including chapters on talking to your surgeon with honesty, identifying what is driving overeating, the impact of surgery on a marriage, and life following weight loss surgery.
“Weight Loss Surgery: The Real Skinny - at its heart - is about honesty; an open “conversation” with readers about how a healthy weight is achieved,” says Dr. Nicholson. “Weight loss surgery has many wonderful benefits but it is not a quick fix. We help patients who have been through the surgery - and those considering the surgery - to understand the many factors that, along with surgery, contribute to weight management and long-term health.”
