Help me trouble shoot my morning latte



Recommended Posts

I have a Starbucks skinny cinnamon dolce latte on my way to work every morning. The nutrition info for it is 100 calories, 14g carbs, 9g Protein. I started my pre-op diet yesterday. My Dr. states for the 3 weeks prior to surgery I should have at least 100g protein and less than 50g carbs per day. They are OK with coffee. I'd like to swap this out with something lower in carbs. I can't drink plain black coffee. Has anyone had any success mixing Protein Powder with their coffee for a latte type substitute? If so, do have suggestions for one with the best flavor/best mixes in to hot liquids?

Use almond milk instead of regular milk, it will save you like 65 to 70 calories off of that 100. Plus you get a nice "nutty" flavor in the aftertaste that is actually quite good.

Most of the pre-made shakes taste good in coffee. Seems like the #1 favorite might be the Premier Protein caramel. If you do mix them, let the coffee cool down a bit first. If it's too hot, the Protein Shake will curdle (UGH!) But, there are lots of flavors to experiment with.

Thanks everyone! I'll give the Protein Shakes a try, and the almond milk as well.

Stick a shot of espresso into any vanilla or chocolate shake. nummy. It mixes well and you get as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.

Iced cold brew frapp at home

One cup cold brew coffee. One Premier Protein Caramel shake. One squirt Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup. Ice. Blender.

Same thing can be done with caramel, vanilla or chocolate Protein powder and Fairlife Skim.

Fairlife Skim - 13 g protein 80 cal

Protein Powder 23g protein 110 cal.

Coffee - 0

sugar free syrup 0 protein 5 cals.

Ice 0

So you've got roughly 200 calories and 36g of protein plus your morning joe. I still do this a couple of days a week.

I'm 3 years out.

Torani makes a whole line of sugar free coffee-house syrups. I have a station set up in my house. It's amazing what you can do - chocolate Protein powder, caramel Syrup an 1 TB PB2 - Snickers. Want to up your Fiber - add some chia seeds. Too thin - couple of tablespoons of oikos triple zero. The possibilities are limited only by your own tastes.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
