Jimmy Johns Unwiches



Recommended Posts

My coworker invited me to go along to Jimmy Johns with her. I was hesitant because I LOVE Jimmy Johns and knew that the smell would make me really want a sandwich. Since I'm only 6 weeks post-op I am staying FAR away from breads and pastas.

I have never noticed their Unwiches before (why would I when I was enjoying their delicious bread? ) but they will make any of their subs into an Unwich, which is just a lettuce wrap. I had the Club Lulu, my favorite sandwich, as an Unwich today and it is amazingly good!!! 30g of Protein (if you can eat the whole thing which, of course, I couldn't....managed about 3 bites) but it will make for an excellent snack or next meal.

This may have been discussed already but I figured I would let you all know about it. I am so happy to be able to have Jimmy Johns! Delicious, and only 2 carbs.

I just recently found out about that also and it is one of the few places that delivers where I work. Can't wait to try it.

Can you tolerate the lettuce? I'm five weeks out and it sounds great.

I haven't had any trouble with lettuce. I take small bites and chew everything really well. So far so good. :)

I am 6 week post gastric sleeve. This past weekend my family was in from out of town and my parents decided to fry fish and do a huge salad😋 two of My favs. I ate the inside of the fish and a few bites of salad and it was amazing.. well today I had to go see my doctor to have some test done and my doctor is about 2 hours out the way and I had to fast so I was starving. Well on my way back I stopped at Jimmy John's and ordered the unwhich, talk about like I got in about 3 good bites. I am so thankful for Jimmy John's for having something I could actually enjoy eating the rest will be dinner😁

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
