If you are feeling frustrated by weight regain, then it’s time to get back to what works.
Right after surgery you worked so hard to meet protein goals while keeping carbs and total calories low. UNJURY® Protein helps a lot with that. If you met those goals consistently, it worked! You probably experienced “melting” or very steady weight loss. And that felt great!
Over time, new foods are introduced, and some in the medical community encourage you to move back to 100% solid foods. This is when many people report weight regain.
Meeting protein goals each day is a key to healthy, sustainable weight loss. That’s because protein supports healthy muscle, and muscle drives your metabolism.
When patients stop using protein supplements, and try to meet their protein goals entirely with solid food protein, it doesn’t always go well. Some people don’t have an appetite for chicken, eggs, salmon, or beef multiple times each day. And others just don’t digest those foods very well after surgery.
When you don’t get enough protein, it’s easy for other foods to slip back into your diet, and those foods might lead to weight gain. That’s why we think keeping UNJURY® Protein in your routine is so important to long term success.
Here’s something to think about:
When someone is being treated for high blood pressure, their doctor might recommend a blood pressure medication, more exercise, a lower sodium diet and stress reduction.
When that patient reaches a healthy blood pressure, they don’t say, “OK, now you can stop doing one or two of those things.” The combination was important for helping the patient reduce blood pressure, and all of those tools will be important for the patient to maintain a healthy blood pressure in the long-term.
The same thing is true for weight management. If a combination of protein supplements, exercise, weight loss medication or surgery, and stress management helped you lose weight, then all of those things are tools that will help you maintain a healthy weight.
So, here’s our advice. “Get Back to What Works.” High-quality UNJURY® Protein is a fantastic weight loss AND weight maintenance tool. Use the combination of tools that work best for you.
