Weight Loss Surgery: The Real Skinny
By Nick Nicholson M.D.

NEW BOOK REVEALS WHY DIETS DON’T WORK FOR MORBIDLY OBESE PEOPLE -- Learn the Truth Behind Their Shocking 98% Failure Rate

Today, Americans only seem to care about convenience and quick fixes – especially when it comes to weight loss. It does not matter whether it is a new exercise program, the latest diet, or the next big trend in surgery, people want to achieve dramatic results in the shortest amount of time possible.  A common misconception is that bariatric surgery is just that quick fix.  In reality, while surgery can jump-start the weight loss process, maintaining a healthy weight also requires a long-term diet and exercise plan. 

As a way to help educate Americans who are considering bariatric surgery, or those who have already undergone the procedure, well-regarded bariatric surgeon, Dr. Nick Nicholson wrote the book, Weight Loss Surgery: The Real Skinny.  In his new book, Dr. Nicholson shares his passion for healthy living to encourage people suffering from obesity to make the necessary changes to live a healthier lifestyle. 
Weight Loss Surgery: The Real Skinny also reveals:

  • Why diets don’t work for most obese people
  • What weight loss surgery is really all about
  • Ways for patients to choose the right surgeon
  • How emotions play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy weight
  • How weight loss surgery impacts relationships: the good, the bad, and the ugly  
  • Simple ways to develop a post-surgery weight loss plan that really works
  • Common obstacles people face after the surgery and what they can do about it

“I wanted to help people understand how to be successful using weight loss surgery,” said Dr. Nicholson.  “This book provides more details on the emotions that impact successful weight loss surgery than any book on the market. This is important, because if a patient doesn’t deal successfully with the emotions surrounding their weight and their weight loss, they risk gaining it all back.”

Dr. Nick Nicholson has a passion for helping people suffering from obesity. He has performed over 10,000 bariatric procedures and has been called upon by Johnson & Johnson and W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc. to instruct surgeons on the use of their products in bariatric surgery.

Dr. Nicholson’s clinic has been recognized as a Center of Excellence by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons. He is board certified in general surgery, and the holder of various patents on medical devices.  With a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin and a medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, he completed his residency at the University of Texas Southwestern hospital. 

A true renaissance man, Dr. Nicholson enjoys cycling, reading, movies, and spending time with his family.  He is a proud Parrothead and lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife, sons – 8 and 11 – and Goldendoodle, Dixie.
