North Mississippi Medical Center’s Bariatric Clinic has published Bariatric Bites, a cookbook for weight loss surgery patients and anyone who wants to eat more healthfully.

Each recipe contains a nutrition analysis for calories, protein, fat, carbohydrate and fiber content. In addition to more than 200 recipes, the hardbound cookbook includes healthy recipe substitution tips, as well as long-term tips for achieving and maintaining weight loss.

Bariatric Bites is available for $15 from the NMMC Bariatric Clinic, 408 Council Circle, Suite C, or by calling 1-866-908-9465. Shipping is available for an additional $3.

Because the Bariatric Center is accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program as a Comprehensive Center and is recognized in the Optum Centers of Excellence Network, weight loss surgery at NMMC is covered by more health plans, including those for teachers, state employees and many offered by employers, check your health plan benefits, talk to your doctor and weigh your options.
