In this book, Dr. Vuong offers pertinent psychological and self-improvement tips that are necessary for success after weight loss surgery, which is a rarely covered topic. Drawing on his professional experience working with obesity patients and his own personal journey for enlightenment, he has provided a concise yet profound manual for losing weight and gaining enlightenment. This book does not discuss the various weight loss surgeries, complications, insurance coverage, food tips, or the "usual" dieting tips. This book deals more with what really matters after weight loss surgery--how to change your mind and hence your perception of reality. Whether you are a newbie to weight loss surgery, a seasoned dieter, or just someone seeking enlightenment, this book is a must read. Dr. Vuong is an internationally renowned bariatric surgeon and the current director of Lovelace Bariatrics in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is recognized for his unique Patient Empowerment Program, in which he personally leads weekly educational sessions for his WLS patients. A popular speaker, Dr. Vuong starred in TLC's hit show, "900 Pound Man: A Race Against Time."
DISCOVER whats been keeping you from weight loss success After almost 30 years of helping thousands of people, just like you, to get in shape, I realized there is a lot more to losing weight than merely 'diet and workout'. While those are essential elements, for many, they only result in the classic yo-yo diet effect, if any effect at all. The causes for this are many but in essence, the reason you can't successful keep weight off is because you are still in spiritual and emotional bondage, that must be identified and broken before any weight loss will become permanent. The type of bondage of which I speak can be emotional eating, a false sense of identity, or a deep seated need to stay the way you are (which you might not even consciously realize).

Losses are integral to the human experience, but they sometimes unfold in subtle ways. Loss is not just about death, but can encompass a number of situations, such as those gradual losses experienced by the elderly: loss of vision, mental capacity, or hope. Intended to stimulate ideas and research in the new area of psychological aspects of loss, this sourcebook collects the writing of a set of distinguished scholars representing psychology and related fields. The author presents a case for a broadly-construed field of loss-both personal and interpersonal-that would complement other fields such as death and dying, traumatology, and stress and coping. No other volume is as comprehensive in its treatment of this intriguing subject. The book begins with an introduction to the concept of loss and discusses the definition of the term and the salience of the topic in the general public in the 1990s. Contributors were chosen to represent some of the most interesting current work on different types of loss and adaptation in the whole of the social and behavioral sciences. Contents cover such diverse subjects as loss in intimate relationships, disability, chronic illness, genocide, sports, unemployment, and homelessness. The book concludes with a commentary section on loss theory and research.
