Unjury – Unflavored

On September 17, 2010, in Protein, Reviews, by Andrea

I’ve sat on this review for about ten months now.  I don’t normally run from a fight, but this one I did.

See, Unjury sent me samples back in December and I offered to try them.  However, shortly after, the attitude of the Unjury owners changed towards me and I honestly did not feel as though I could give an honest review of the product.  So I didn’t in fear that a bad review would draw even more criticism from the owners of Unjury.  (How this would be possible, I’m not even sure.)

Suddenly, I find, that I just don’t give a damn.  So away we go.

The package.

UNJURY® is a great-tasting protein supplement that provides the highest quality protein. One serving of Unjury provides 20 grams of protein – as much as 3 eggs – without the fat and cholesterol.

UNJURY® Protein Provides:
* Highest quality protein from Whey Protein Isolate.
* High protein content, low carbs and low fat.
* Truly great clean taste.

Medical Quality Protein Developed by a Clinical Dietitian
An experienced Clinical Dietitian, MS RD — in search of a light, clean, good tasting, high-protein supplement — found no product out there with high-quality protein. This inspired the development of UNJURY®. Unlike other protein powder supplements, UNJURY® is better because it is almost entirely protein — and has a great taste! Try UNJURY!

Professional Post-Ops

On September 8, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

It’s like a suicide mission when you can’t see no end
Tired of compliment fishin’ and impressing your friends
I never kissed no one just to kiss and tell
It’s a little bit of heaven and a whole lot of hell

There’s been some discussion of “Professional Post-Ops” and their “Behavior” of late, and it’s been running around in my head.  Specifically, it ran through my head yesterday as I was wiping down my walls, baseboards, and chair rails, high as a kite from bleach (can one get high from bleach?  I’m voting yes..) in preparation for house guests coming in from Sweden this afternoon.  I mean – when there is so little thought required in a task, it’s only normal that one’s mind will wander.  And wander mine did.

Blame it on the BBGC

On August 26, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

She’s done wondering what it’s like to be liked by everyone, and like everyone be just like anyone, and just wants to be so just like anyone, and wondering what they mean do they just mean to mean to be mean, and thinking about the scene do they just want to be seen, and try not to seem so just like anyone. – Soul Asylum

I’m back from the ObesityHelp Cincinnati Conference and I can safely say that of the now three events I’ve attended?  This was, by far, the most fun I’ve had.

And I place the blame squarely upon the shoulders of the BBGC – those bitches.

Calcium supplements and cardiovascular risk?

On July 31, 2010, in Minerals, by Andrea

A prime example of how media will take a study and leave out key points in order to scare people.  Gotta love it.

All over, the news outlets are talking about how people should maybe lay off the calcium because there may be too much risk for a cardiovascular incident versus osteoporosis prevention.  What they conveniently forget to mention is that the calcium used did not contain any vitamin D, which is pretty much standard faire in the US.  Vitamin D is renowned for lowering cardiovascular risk.. perhaps this study highlights that now more than ever?  I can say fairly confidently that people are waking up to the need of vitamin D and post-WLS folks are some of the most educated in that realm.  WTG WLSers!

Additionally, it should be noted that the problem is with fluctuating serum calcium levels — something that doesn’t happen as often with post-WLS patients as our absorption does not work the same way.  Food for thought:  how many post-ops, people who routinely take 1500-2000mg of calcium citrate a day (or should be..) are dropping like flies with heart disease?  Not many.

Am I worried?  No.
