Over the past few weeks I started school with a full load of 12 credit hours. I took my kids school shopping for uniform clothes, school supplies, attended 2 of my youngest sons Football games, and on last Wednesday I had Major Surgery! All of these things in addition to my normal chaotic work, life and family routine as a married mom of three teenage boys. I’m happy to say I’m writing this from the comforts of my own bed and even though I still remain in a lot of pain I feel good.Prior to surgery my Physician sent me for a consultation with a Nutritionist. When I informed her I was currently reviewing the Atkins Easy Peasy Frozen Meal Plan, she was impressed with the calories and amount of vitamins and nutrients included in the plan. In fact, she told me if I continued on the plan I shouldn’t have any problems or complications after surgery. I continued to eat the meals, bars and shakes right up until the day before my surgery and 1 day after surgery I was discharged home. After surgery all of my labs and blood-work were within normal limits. My Physician said I was in excellent health and I was able to go home. My body will still need to heal from the surgery but the Atkins Meal Plan gave me the vitamins and nutrients to get me through surgery and allowed me to go home only 48 hours after surgery.

I had no idea the Atkins Easy Peasy Meal Plan would be so beneficial to my pre-surgical dietary needs.
