It was a pleasure to interview Dr. Connie Stapleton and discuss triggers that many emotional eaters have and why underweight and overweight people have similar, but different issues. Many overweight people put weight back on after the surgery. Think this doesn’t apply to you? Do you know over 200,000 people have the surgery every year? With statistics like that, we may know someone in our own 6 degree of separation going through this.
Connie Stapleton, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist who works directly with surgical weight loss patients before and after Bariatric Surgery
Observing patients regain weight after losing a hundred plus pounds following surgical weight loss procedures, Dr. Stapleton set out with determination to help patients prevent substantial weight regain after the surgery.
Eat It Up! The Complete Mind/Body/Spirit Guide to a Full Life After Weight Loss Surgery (Transformation Media Books, 2009)
holds the keys to the prevention of weight regain by providing information and tools to address finding balance in all areas of life that were negatively affected by obesity (Social life, Work, Emotions, Spirituality, and more).
