Dear UNJURY Friends,
One thing is clear from 2020 - we are stronger together! When we offer advice, ideas and support to fellow patients, we all win.
When someone has stopped losing weight, or started gaining weight, we hear the question, “What should I do?”
Customers want to understand how to use their protein products throughout the day -- to get Back on Track. We have some great ideas, but we though that you would like to hear from other patients who are successfully using UNJURY® Products in their daily routines.
Justin H. had surgery 5 years ago. He lost 120lbs initially, and is keeping his weight pretty stable between 220 and 230 by using UNJURY® a couple times each day. Here’s what a typical day looks like for Justin:
- Breakfast: I like the UNJURY® Meal Replacements (Chocolate or Cinnamon Café) mixed with coffee. They get me through the morning easily. If I have time to cook, I will make a 3 egg omelet, but that is usually just on the weekends.
- Lunch: Soup and salad, bun-less burger, or just a Ready to Drink Shake if I am on the go. If I have to do a drive through, I will get grill nuggets or a grilled chicken sandwich and just throw away the bun.
- Snack: (sometimes, not always hungry for a snack) UNJURY® Chocolate Peanut Butter Bite if I am in the mood for a treat, but usually I try to eat a piece of fruit with cheese or a small hand full of nuts.
- Dinner: I generally stick to whole foods for dinner. Mostly protein and veggies, but I will add a small potato or brown rice a couple time each week. Chicken, green beans and a potato is a very typical meal for me. A small portion of course. It is usually ½ of the chicken breast and ½ of the potato.
- Dessert or Snack: (rarely, I usually try to stop eating by 7:00pm) Yogurt and chocolate splendor protein powder or sometimes I make those protein balls, and have one or two.
Shondra L. had a sleeve 2 ½ years ago. She lost 97lbs. She is pretty happy but would like to hit her goal weight of 170lbs. She stopped using protein supplements at the end of year one. Her weight stayed right around 200lbs for about a year, then she decided to add UNJURY® back in to get weight loss moving again. She is now 13lbs from her goal. This is her routine:
- Breakfast: UNJURY® Vanilla RTD. I do this every day. I have never cared about breakfast, but I know it is better if I start my day with protein, so I drink this at my desk.
- Mid-Morning Snack: Apple slices and cheese stick or yogurt with blueberries. This is when I am really hungry, but I don’t need much, and I am kind of a picky eater, so I keep it simple.
- Lunch: UNJURY® Chicken Soup. I love this this! Sometimes I add vegetables and real chicken, or sometimes I will have a ½ of a sandwich on the side.
- Dinner: I like lasagna, and most casseroles, so I either eat a really small portion, or I do what my dietitian wants me to do, I eat something like turkey, or chicken with a vegetable and one other small side.
- Nothing after dinner right now, except maybe a cup of tea or sugar free Jello made with UNJURY® protein powder.
Nancy M. is preparing for revision surgery in a few months. She is increasing her protein intake now, and start back on her bariatric vitamins. She has lost about 15lbs in the past month, and hopes to lose another 20 before surgery.
- Breakfast: Oatmeal with UNJURY® Vanilla Protein Powder. I usually sprinkle a few almonds on top too.
- Lunch: UNJURY® Fresh Berry Smoothie Meal Replacement - as a smoothie. I usually add a little yogurt, berries, and a handful of spinach or kale, and ice. I am not a good vegetable eater, so this is how I get it in.
- Afternoon Snack: I usually do a second cup of coffee or decaf in the afternoon. I like the Mocha Bites or Brownie Bites with it. I just started making the Bonjoy™ Campfire Latte gelato which has been a really nice change of pace. It is super filling. Sometimes I just have cottage cheese or a piece of fruit too.
- Dinner: I eat dinner out a lot, or get take out because it is just me, and I don’t really enjoy cooking. I try to make a healthy choice and then divide the meal in to two so I have enough for two nights. This is my hardest meal!
