Bariatric Food Coach helps patients get the most out of weight loss surgery with meal plans, education and community.

Hi! I’m Steph Wagner, Registered Dietitian with a huge heart for coaching bariatric patients to get the most out of their weight loss surgery.

I’m married to Kevin Wagner, Web Developer and the man behind the logistics of the website.

Together, we operate Bariatricfoodcoach.com and leverage technology with my decade of bariatric surgery nutrition experience.

You’ll find a library of over 500 bariatric friendly recipes and articles focused on the questions patients ask me most. Members to my site instantly unlock educational video courses, written meal plans, menu planner tool, email access to myself and access to our closed Facebook group where you can connect more with others.

Members are also able to connect with the Bariatric Food Coach program on their free Baritastic app. I review food journals and provide feedback when requested.

Bariatric Food Coach is not meant to replace any medical advice from your surgeon or dietitian and is best paired as supplemental resources to your post-op care team! 

Interested in finding out more about me?  I’d love to share!

Hi, I’m Steph! Founder and Owner of Bariatric Food Coach. Curious to know a little more about the woman behind the weight-loss surgery focused website? Here are the top things you should know about me:

1. I’m married to Kevin, who happens to be the web developer for the site. We met on Christian Mingle and are in one of their commercials, which also happens to be in Christian Mingle: The Movie (available on Netflix!)

2. We are incredibly blessed with two beautiful children, Zoey and Thomas (Tommy).

3. After earning my Bachelors and Masters in Nutrition, I became a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist specializing in Weight-Loss Surgery since 2009. I have a passion for food and a love for people that makes me love the work I do!

4. I’ve personally struggled with my weight since middle school.

5. I believe variety and planning ahead are the two greatest tools for weight management. I also believe you can never have too many cheerleaders.
