NY Times Features UNJURY in Article About Bariatric Surgery

The New York Times recently chronicled the journey of two bariatric patients before and one year after surgery. The article expresses the challenges of bariatric patients and addresses the change in their relationship with food.

Many patients notice a change in food preferences. Patients find that they don't crave food the way that they used to, and sometimes forget to eat. The article describes one patient eating slowly, as though hunger was an "afterthought." The same patient previously described hunger as something that "claws at you from the inside out before surgery. This demonstrates how drastically surgery can affect the desire and consumption of food.

Despite a drastic reduction in her food intake, this patient still experienced a weight loss plateau, and struggled to lose all of the weight she had hoped. She mentioned how she wanted to eat to live, and not live to eat, which the surgery enabled her to do. However, when discussing a meal, she mentioned a turkey sandwich and a kid's yogurt, which lacks sufficient protein. After bariatric surgery, many people cannot consume a large amount of food, therefore the quality of it is crucial.

That's why we were so relieved to see a container of UNJURY on the table. Protein is the foundation for weight loss, with or without bariatric surgery. Protein helps to preserve lean muscle mass during weight loss - and that’s so important for keeping your metabolism active – for you to reach your goal weight and maintain it.

UNJURY provides 21 grams of high quality protein in just one scoop – the same amount as 3 eggs or 3 cooked ounces of meat, chicken, or fish. Eating that volume of food after surgery can be a challenge, and eating less than what is required can lead to nutrient deficiencies.

Long-term use of a quality protein supplement is key to keeping your metabolism active and to continue losing weight. After surgery, it is difficult to get all of the protein you need in the required amount from solid foods. Use UNJURY to make convenient shakes or add it to your recipes to boost the protein content without having to eat more. Consider UNJURY your weight loss insurance to reach your desired weight and stay there!
