Postage is calculated on the final total packed weight of your order. If you order more than 3 items at once, then we are sometimes able to manually adjust the postage down because we combine packaging. This saving will show on your credit card but not at the checkout.

You will notice we offer discounts for multiple copies because we save staff-time on packing and invoicing, and use less packaging material. In other words, it is time-efficient for us to pack a single box of many books against one invoice. Want to get a quote for bulk purchases bigger than those offered here?

If you want a no-fuss approach to eating well for a better body and health, then you've found it. I promise you won't be disappointed. This is the best photographic visual portion guide you will ever find.

More than 400 life-size food and drink photos show serve sizes as "energy equals".

Just by looking at pictures you will quickly see how different foods compare for the same energy (kJ and calorie) value. You'll also find out how many serves to eat each day to reach your goals. You won't have to count calories ever again.

Want a quick no-fuss approach to great nutrition and weight control by enjoying everyday foods?

Want to stop counting calories? Want to get off the diet treadmill? Get this book!

With the help of real life-size food photos, you'll see which foods to have more or less of for better health and body shape with this award winning book.

Inside, you'll find an easy-to-use format of life-size images divided into different food sections. This book is big. It's about 225 mm x 310 mm in size and the weight is close to 1.7 kg.

  • This version is a bumper 261 pages long.
  • Inside more than 400 life-size food and drink photos are included. The original version had just over 300 images.
  • Almost 500 foods and drinks in total are featured in seven main sections.
  • A new section about flavours and drinks has been added.
  • A weekly totals guide has been created to give you even more flexibility.
  • At the back is a food composition table with protein, fat, carbohydrate, alcohol and energy values for all foods and drinks featured. You don't need to use these tables to use the book. The whole idea of this book is that you can and will throw away any need to calorie count by simply by checking your serves against the life-size photos.
  • Additional images and information about health protective vegetables (vitamin A rich, brassica and folate rich) in line with the Australian Dietary Guidelines from the National Health &Medical Research Council.
  • We photographed real foods without any packaging or branding. The images in this book are timeless.

The Gastric Sleeve Guide

Cover of The Gastric Sleeve Guide
2017 edition is here! Automatic discounts for 3 or more copies. Great for clinics and support groups.

The full official title is a handful ... The Gastric Sleeve Guide. Food, nutrition and lifestyle solutions before and after your sleeve gastrectomy.

Rather than being a Gastric Sleeve Diet Book, this book plans to shift you away from the dieting treadmill towards a lifestyle that mixes great food with a great attitude to life, to living life to the full.

The Gastric Sleeve Guide: food, nutrition and lifestyle solutions before and after your sleeve gastrectomy is written by Trudy Williams in consultation with dietitians, surgeons and the real life experiences of people with a sleeve from Australia and elsewhere in the world.

This guide is crammed full of a stack of information that is very specific to the gastric sleeve.

This book recognises that the gastric sleeve is very, very different to other surgeries for obesity care. It is different to other books in the market place that combine the various obesity surgeries together and provide diet guides only.

Trudy knows how important it is for you to get clear information about the surgery you are having done -- sleeve surgery -- rather than unnecessary, mixed-up information about different surgeries.

To take a peek inside The Gastric Sleeve Guide, click here for some sample page screen-shots.

You have the same access to a guide that dietitians and surgeons use across the world.

The guide is listed in the global database of PEN Nutrition, which is for professional dietitians. It has also passed the Dietitians Association of Australia's Dietetic Information and Nutrition Education Resources (DINER) evaluation process, certifying is as a quality source of current, evidence-based information. Valid April 2017 - 2020. DINER is a professional dietitian's and DAA member's resource portal.
