Best way I have found to make coffee



Recommended Posts

So I have had to experiment with my coffee...bye bye cream and sugar, hello vanilla Protein Shake.< /p>

But making a pot of coffee and adding Protein shake waters it down. I have found that adding a Starbucks Via packet to a protein shake is much better! Better coffee flavor, not watered down and if I add a bit of boiling Water it's nice and warm too ????☕️

I was told not to use the instant coffee packets because they contain caffeine. So now I put chocolate Protein shake and sugar free peppermint mocha Creamer in my coffee. I usually have to put it in the microwave to heat it up so it's hot.

I'll never give up my real coffe.

I've been using Chike mocha in my vanilla shakes and it tastes great.

For my real coffee I just add 2% Fairlife milk.

I've yet to find and Protein powder or mix that would not clump badly in hot coffee.< /p>

Here's my easy coffee recipe: leave work and drive to starbucks, order a grande americano (it's espresso with added hot water), pay with app, sit and drink and let go of my daily worries for 20 minutes.

I believe they all clump due to the whey curdling when hot,I found that if I dissolve the Protein Powder in some milk/creamer ( whatever my mood is) and then pour in the coffee, it's fairs a whole lot better

I imagine the main reason is because it is a diuretic. But if you have no trouble getting in your Water, I doubt it is much of an issue. My doctor is fine with it.

Highly acidic coffee may also be bad for sleeve patients due to increasing acid reflux risk.

coffee can also increase hunger for some, but for me it is an appetite suppressant.

I don't understand why caffeine is not allowed.

Also, right after surgery it can be frowned upon because caffeine is a vasoconstrictor (constricts blood vessels) and it's thought might slow healing from surgery.

I use Premier Ready to Drink chocolate shake in my coffee. It does not lump up at all.

coffee is a diuretic and contains acid. I am fine with my Columbian Decaf. Occasionally I have real coffee but I don't make it a habit.

I don't understand why caffeine is not allowed.

Caffeine is absorbed into the body with the same receptors as Vitamin D. If you are drinking coffee and taking a Vitamin D supplement, you will not absorb the Vitamin if the caffeine is present.

My surgeon allowed caffeinated coffee after 1 month post-op. I usually have about 2 cups per day. I either make it at home or work and add a couple tablespoons of 2% Fairlife milk and some sugar-free Torani Syrup, or if I'm out I get it at Wawa (a convenience store here in PA) and add some vanilla soy milk and a Splenda packet. I just had my 6-month appointment this morning, and all my labs came back great, so it doesn't seem to be doing me any harm!

Mine is similar, but requires a little more work.

Take out a Keurig adapter.

Fill with my own ground coffee I buy from a warehouse club ($16 for 40 oz for Starbucks, or less for other brands).

Brew it into my own coffee mug.

Add a little milk and artificial sweetener.

Take $2 out of my wallet.

Wave it in the direction of Starbucks Headquarters in Seattle, Washington and taunt them.

Put the $2 back in my wallet.

Drink the coffee while relaxing and realizing how much better that coffee tastes when sitting on 2 comfortable $1 bills.

:)

      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.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
