When Can We Drink Coffee Again?



Recommended Posts

I have never drank coffee before' date=' but I am trying to find creative ways to get my Protein in so I had my hubby go out and buy some Decaf earlier and I am going to try to do a cup in the morning with vanilla whey Protein and some other added sugar free flavors. He bought sugar fee caramel and chocolate Syrup so I'm hoping I can make that a tasty way to get in protein first thing in the mornings. The Protein shakes are so much that I can't get them all down so if I can get a bunch in in a small cup of coffee I'll be thrilled.

I know my mom would die without her coffee so for those of you who really need it, I hope you can make it work.[/quote']

Take four ounces of coffee grinds and 2 1/2 cups cold Water, let that sit for 12-15 hours then sift it through cheese cloth into a pitcher and refrigerate, then mix one cup coffee and one cup slim milk with ur sf syrup and Protein Powder, it's ur iced protein coffee and tastes great! I do 1-2 of those a day. I did sf butter run today, yummy! If u drink it hot, Maje sure ur coffee is not too hot or ur powder will clump up and u don't want that ;)

I tried ading Protein powder to my coffee and it appeared to curdle! It was lumpy and looked like cottage cheese in my coffee.... is there a trick to adding it to the coffee?

There is a trick to adding Protein to coffee. I add protein to a small amount of Water in a clean dry cup. Add splenda & SF Creamer & whisk with a fork. Then I slowly add a little hot coffee to the mixture while whisking until its all combined.

If I do this right, no lumpy bumpies. If not, I pour the whole thing in a Blender Bottle & shake.

This is how I drink my coffee every day. For the first month after surgery I used Decaf, then I switched.

I'm trying Click next week. Will let y'all know if it's as good as everyone says.

I have had black coffee since day three...ok by dr. but says to limit because caffeine can cause hunger? Less than one cup is all I do now though.

Ordered Click sample pack today. I can do light Muscle Milk but everything else is hard to choke down...

Did have a very small portion of well rinsed tuna and some steamed (to mushiness) green Beans and carrots. Who would have ever thought that would be a 'spread'?!

Work that sleeve!

This sounds like a good way to "temper" the Protein Powder and prevent lumps.

As for plain ol' coffee, I was traveling this week and didn't bother to pack powder. I had plain black coffee each day with no problems. I used to take sweetener in my coffee, but I don't want to use artificial sweeteners forever. I have never had any issue with coffee, before or after sleeve. I really like that caffeine kick in the morning, and sometimes that is what keeps me upright in the afternoon.

I like seeing all the creative ways everyone is doing with their coffee. I try for the most part to drink Decaf which I have been since about one month post-op, I think. I drink regular every now and then when I feel I need to 'wake up' more in the morning. Since I like the taste of mochas I had been mixing 'Proti Diet' brand hot cocoa mix with my coffee and just recently tried the 'Premier Nutrition' brand ready to drink Protein chocolate drink to mix in with my coffee. I heat up 1/2 the container in a coffee glass, add my coffee and 1 Stevia packet. Not too bad.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
