I haven't found great decaf yet, but I do find that it tastes better cold brewed. I'm still not drinking coffee post-op (personal choice, not required), but several years ago I had to go decaf for other reasons. Cold brew really made it taste better. I make a big batch on the weekends, then drink it throughout the week. You can heat it up if you prefer hot coffee. Coarsely grind Beans and let them soak in Water overnight. Use roughly a 1:4 coffee to water ratio. For example, 10 oz of coffee to 40 oz of water. To make for easier clean up, put the coffee in a nut bag and put the nut bag in the pitcher. It'll be concentrated, so I usually add about 1/3 coffee with 2/3 water (basically 2 oz coffee with 4-6 oz water, some folks use milk).

i drink folgers at home and donut shop at work. I do add SF Torani syrups and i add some Premier Protein for the Creamer. I have not ventured outside of the premier so far.. I am only 7 weeks out and the coffee actually taste pretty good. The other day i used chocolate premier.. and peppermint torani and made a peppermint mocha coffee.

I found Starbucks decaf to be too acidic to tolerate post-surgery. I may try it again in a month or two, but one cup set off three days of reflux, no bueno. Decaf Bustelo is ok, but only brewed, the instant has barely any oomph. So far I enjoy the McDonald's McCafe decaf best. whatever you do, don't waste your money on the low-acid "Healthwise", it tastes like straight garbage.

I do the green mountain decaf light roast. I find it to be the best for my stomach, acid wise. This site also sells an acid-free coffee. Its decent.
Stay away from Panera coffee! Way too acidic!

Okay, so I have to ask. I was a on and off coffee drinker before surgery. But now we have to decaf everything. So I drank coffee for the caffeine but decaf had none. So my question is what the purpose for decaf. Is it just for the taste.

If you are looking for decaf coffee to kick caffeine then you may to try microbatch and specialty roasters. That translates to $$$.

If it's for protection of the new gastro it's going to be low or no acid coffee you are looking for.

Either of way, choose the lesser of the evils you can handle or mix them. Consult your NUT/Team, don't count reg coffee towards hydration (caffeine is a diuretic) and maybe try tea or herbal coffee sometimes instead.

Safe Journey 🎈

I just drink regular coffee. Decaf is like drinking nonalcoholic beer. I don't see the point. I was told to go by the pee chart and don't seem to have a problem drinking Water throughout the day. Here's the pee chart.328948741_peechart.jpg.8c741421d041c6734e1737f83a18ac5b.jpg

Ive never seen the chart. I'm bad because I don't keep track of my Water like I should. I keep an eye on color. Too yellow need to drink more. I try to listen to my body instead

Thank you, I just wanted to really know if drinking for being part of a routine or if it has just a little caffeine in it. Lol that I could get a boost.

Decaf coffee has trace amounts of caffeine in it. Not enough to get "a boost".

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
