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.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

        I have threw up clear mucus every time I ate something that didn’t sit well with my stomach. I’ve been trying to get too ahead of myself though I had surgery September 22 I noticed that when I eat smaller slower bites I don’t throw up as much
