When did you guys start drinking regular coffee again?



Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I am 9 months post op and I drink Decaf coffee everyday now and I am itching to have regular I was thinking I should at least do half cafe first, I was told no caffeine until 12 months but I also know that everyone is different and all the programs are different so I am asking for shared experience with coffee I am also looking forward to making coffee Protein drinks. Please any knowledge and experience helps me to figure out if I should try it or wait and of course listen to my gut which is saying yes its fine you have just a few more months to go!

Thank you team.

I drink regular coffe. A cup a day. I'm 7 months post op. I use fat free Creamer and less than half a sweetener.

My doc said 1-2 cups of caffeine was fine. It's people who drink 40 ounces or more that get in trouble - just stay away from the caloric version of coffee : the Late's and such

I am 4 months out and have a small cup every day. No problems whatsoever and my doc said it was fine. I use a splash of creamer and am very happy. :)

The primary issue with caffeine is the dehydration it causes. My surgeon told me Decaf but I can tolerate 1 cup of regular coffee at 2 wks post-op. Titrate your creamer, and make sure sugar free sweetener.

Everyone is different. Make sure you compensate with getting plenty of fluids. I'm intaking about 72oz of Water per day.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
