Starbucks Anyone?



Recommended Posts

Before my RNY two years ago, I never really drank coffee. Then suddenly I got into a routine of going regularly (ie once or twice a day). My surgeon says it's okay as long as I am getting in my Protein and Vitamins. But even though a venti skinny vanilla latte has protein (and carbs!) I admit to overdoing it with the sugar free vanilla Syrup. My cold "go to" drink is a coffee-light frappachino, with sf vanilla added also. Are frappachinos considered CARBONATED?? Or is it just crushed ice? Is the air in it a bad idea?

What are your opinions on and options for Starbuck's drinking after gastric bypass?

Absolutely, Blondie66, I am two years out from RNY and just had my panni last week. This has just happened over the past year. And I can't drink a venti coffee-light frappachino, it has to be a grande.

Pre-op so I can't give too much advice, but I do know the frappucinos would definitely not be considered carbonated, any more than a regular smoothie you make at home. They just use a blender at Starbucks to make those. :)

That makes sense, Little Green, thank you. It is a real obsession of mine and probably not good for me (or my wallet)

Sorry misread your post! Yep Starbucks pricey!! When I go I normally get vanilla latte or blonde roast ...my daughter used to work at Starbucks and I asked her about fraps and they are not carbonated. My personal preference is to try and stay away from sweeteners unless stevia. I've read they're very unhealthy. Better to have sugar but then the calories would be astronomical!!

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
