What Your Surgeon May Not Know About Food and Weight Gain

Are you nervous about incorporating food back into your diet after weight loss surgery (WLS), and unsure about the best approach to take? You are not alone! One of our Registered Dietitians shared this note about a conversation she had with one of our customers: Regrettably, her surgeon told her to stop using protein shakes and switch to "solid foods.”  He said it was adding calories. I believe this is when patients stop losing, or worse - start gaining weight - when they discontinue UNJURY®and switch to food only; they often take in more calories to keep them feeling full and satisfied.I explained how high quality protein is best for satiety -- not being hungry -- and how it is key to weight loss and weight maintenance. Protein is not the cause of weight gain.The patient was happy to have a second opinion from an RD and is returning to 3 servings of UNJURY per day. Striking the right balance between UNJURY and solid foods is a powerful combination and key to continued weight loss success! Tips for Success: 1.With or without weight loss surgery (WLS), protein is the foundation of weight loss success. But it’s nearly impossible to get the doctor recommended amount of protein from food alone (without excess calories)! 2.When your surgeon advises you to "get back on solid foods,” it is important not to replace all of your shakes with just any food. Since one serving of UNJURY has 21 grams of protein and only 100 calories, it can help meet your body’s critical protein needs without taking in large amounts of extra calories. 3.Many, if not most, WLS patients unfortunately never reach their goal, or worse—gain weight. Patients who use UNJURY 3-4 times a day for weight loss, and continue using it twice a day for maintenance, lose the weight and keep it off.
