“As a bariatric surgeon, I can attest to the superior quality of evaluations and care Kelly and Chaundra have provided my patients for more than two decades. This book is a comprehensive collection of their vast experience scripted in a well-organized, practical manner that makes it easy to understand and apply. I recommend it for all those caring for bariatric patients whether you re a nutritionist, psychologist, surgeon, or other ancillary provider.”

Dr. Rebecca Daniel

"BariEDucated is a comprehensive resource that offers empirically supported and practical tips to providers working with individuals pursuing bariatric surgery, whether experienced or novice. This book would be beneficial for behavioral health providers in specialty settings (e.g., weight loss clinics), primary care settings, and outpatient mental health settings. BariEDucated is also an enjoyable read, with the authors’ expertise and passion for this population shining through."

Kim F. Joyner, RNClinical Manager, Wilmington Surgical Associates

"Pre-op and post-op nutrition and psychological care are the bedrock of the bariatric patient's long-term success. For over a decade, I have witnessed the passion and talent of Kelly and Chaundra. Their standard of care is exemplary!"

"Oh how I wish I had a manual like this when I started as a dietitian working with bariatric surgery patients! Bariatric surgery and eating disorder specialists often operate in separate circles, and Kelly and Chaundra’s experience is the perfect intersection of both. Full of clinical practice experience and keeping the patient at the center, it’s the roadmap for how to apply evidence-based practice in the real world!"
