I use Decaf instant crystals to flavor Protein Shakes. I was told that it is caffeine that should be avoided--though the acidity of coffee can cause stomach upset.

I've drunk coffee from fairly early on, I can't tolerate Protein Drinks, but coffee and Decaf is how I get half my Fluid in every day. I just use instant, with boiling Water and skim milk, I count the calories of the milk as one of my meals. I'm over 6 months out now, occasionally I'll buy a 'proper' coffee if I'm out but sometimes that will turn my stomach. My surgeon said coffee was fine, guess all surgeons different 🥴

I think I waited two months to have Decaf. A month later I went to a weak version of half caff and now do either two cups of half caff or one half and one decaf

I’m a sleever and I couldn’t handle Protein Shakes. The whey taste was too much. I have a nespresso machine and got my Protein in from day 1 with 1% milk lattes fortified with 10% or more skim milk powder or milkshakes with sugar free mix made the same.

Do Decaf if it’s before bed, and down to one smaller latte now as get to target with food most days. Never had a prob with it.
