Losing the weight is half the battle; maintaining your healthy weight for the long-term is the more challenging, other half of the battle.
Weight Maintenance IS possible, but you have to meet your protein goals every day – not just right after surgery-- but forever. We know this because we have been talking with bariatric patients and professionals for almost 20 years. We have seen what works, and what doesn’t work.
Your dietitian tells you that protein shakes are important to help you heal after surgery and to keep your muscle healthy during rapid weight loss, but what happens after that?
Does protein become less important over time?
NO, Definitely Not. Meeting protein goals every day is just as important for weight maintenance as it is for weight loss.
Some UCrew Members were chatting during the UNJURY Cares Support Group Meeting last week. Here is what they said about managing their weight:
“Without Shakes it is so much harder to manage my weight.”
“I tried stopping shakes to get protein from food only, and I gained 16 pounds trying to get enough grams a day. I've had to go back to shakes to lose the weight.”
“I can only maintain my weight with the UNJURY® protein shakes.”
These patients know how important protein shakes are to their weight maintenance routine.
Some patients try to get all of their protein from protein sources like chicken, fish, eggs, dairy and beef, and that is possible; BUT those foods often come with higher calories. It’s also really hard for bariatric patients, with small stomachs, to eat meat 3 times a day. You already know that.
This is where good tasting UNJURY shakes are invaluable.
If you like your protein, you will get your protein, and UNJURY® quality is simply the Best.
