Tiny Tummyz was created by a registered nurse and a chef who have both experienced weight loss surgery first hand. From personal experience, and feedback from many weight loss surgery patients, we believe that one of the most difficult things for patients is getting their post-op food right. Not only do you need to worry about getting the consistency of your food right (fluid, puree, soft) to allow your delicate new pouch or sleeve to heal. You are also expected to focus on calculating nutritional values and mentally dealing with the drastically reduced portion sizes you can consume. We also found that boredom is a key factor in motivation, and that having a varied diet reduces boredom and increases motivation. When trying to plan your own post-op diet, even with the best planned shopping lists, the ability to produce a varied diet, focusing on nutritional balance and portion size, results in either having the same meal over and over again, or a large amount of food waste. As such, we decided to launch our post-op meal plans with a “start right” focus in mind, to help guide and support you though your weight loss surgery journey.
Our Reset plan was born out of multiple enquiries from our wonderful customers. We intensively researched all the evidence and recommendations currently available and decided to develop and test our own program. As a reset generally requires you to go back to the start, we found our Tiny Tummyz meal plans were perfectly suited to developing an optimal Reset plan. Our Reset plan has been tested by multiple WLS community members who had either stalled or regained and all reported improved motivation, an increased feeling of fullness and most importantly a kickstart to their weight loss.
