When Food Is Your Frenemy
From Obesity To Restored Health: How Bariatric Surgery and Portion Control Changed My Life
Jacob F Bustos
Considering a Weight-Loss Life Change?
Are you struggling with low self-image and lack of self-confidence stemming from excess weight? Are you disappointed with your body image and what you've allowed yourself to become? If you're ready to commit and dedicate yourself to making a change for the better, then you're ready to set your life change in motion.
This is exactly where Jacob Bustos found himself several years ago, and his excess weight was a harsh reality to accept. "I was grieving for myself," he says, but in hindsight, he was grieving a loss of life . . . his own.
Morbidly obese, Jacob's excess weight portended a short life expectancy, and his soul was emotionally crushed from the burden. After much deliberation, he embarked on a health odyssey by submitting to gastric bypass surgery that saw him lose half his weight, going from 320 pounds to a svelte 160 pounds.
In When Food Is Your Frenemy, Jacob shares his bariatric weight-loss journey and how his "Portion Your Plate" program can help you make your life change with weight-loss a successful one. Jacob also includes 35 of his gourmet healthy portioned recipes.
If you're looking to make a major change in your health today, then let Jacob Bustos show you the way.
