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😁

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
