I’ve always been a fan of curry! After gastric bypass surgery, I hoped I’d still be able to enjoy amazing curry recipes that are healthy meals and packed with protein.

Bariatric surgery is a form of weight loss surgery to help reduce and control the amount of food one can eat. Depending on the type of surgery you have you will be able to enjoy a wide variety of foods you love again.
