My Diet Shopz is an online store that was created by the Center for Health and Weight Loss in Woodbridge, Virginia. The Center helps people lose weight and become healthier through education and counseling.
Through helping these people, My Diet Shopz has discovered which foods work for health and weight loss, and which foods people like to eat. And these foods are available, conveniently together, in their online store for shoppers everywhere.
Their website provides shoppers with complete nutritional information, as well as a list of ingredients for all products. How often do we see that?

While the quite slim, completely naked, and disturbingly breastless woman on the cover of the box can be quite convincing, the jury is still out on the real life effectiveness of Jimpness Beauty Fatloss Capsules.

UNJURY is a protein supplement developed by a registered clinical dietician. It comes in powder form with five flavor options: unflavored, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and chicken soup.
Unjury is designed for people who want to lose weight, seniors, pregnant women, cancer patients and people who want to lead a healthier lifestyle. Doctors usually recommended to bariatric patients.
How Does UNJURY work?
Studies show that protein satisfies hunger and leaves us feeling full longer. One serving of UNJURY contains 20 grams of protein. When we are less hungry, we eat less, and are better able to lose weight. The makers of UNJURY claim that whey protein satisfies hunger more efficiently than other sources of protein.
UNJURY is superior over other protein supplements because it is made from whey protein isolate, as opposed to the whey protein concentrate commonly found in similar products.
Apparently, whey protein isolate contains more highly concentrated protein, and less lactose than whey protein concentrate. This may make it a good option for people who are lactose intolerant.
