We're releasing 4 new flavors of BariatricPal Protein One. Coffe will be one of the new flavors. Would you prefer Caffeinated or Caffeine free?

I vote caffeinated, but given how WLS patents are told to avoid caffeine and all, just seems a bit odd/off to me for a WLS site to be offering something that we are told to avoid. Just my 2 cents, I still drink coffee every morning at this point personally.

Will you all be offering samples? I've had some pretty nasty coffee flavored Proteins in the past.

The official ASMBS guidelines on Caffeine are:

The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) is a leading organization for weight loss surgery. It suggests avoiding caffeine for the first 30 days after weight loss surgery because your stomach or surgery area is still sensitive. After that, be mindful of getting enough fluids and be sure to avoid high-calorie, sugary sources of caffeine.

I wrote an article on Caffeine and WLS. You can read it here. IMO the only issues with caffeine are if it causes you acid reflux.

I think we are going to release a caffeine free and caffeinated version to make everyone happy. We offer single serving size samples so you don't need to commit to an entire tub.

We have 57 members for caffeinated and 42 for caffeine free.

It's a real shame that FaceBook is taking over this earth!! :)

Caffeine!

And my doc never limited it. We could have coffee in the hospital if we wanted.
