coffee problems



Recommended Posts

I normally go to starbucks to get my coffee and havn't had any problems. I decided to start brewing my own coffee at home and bought dunkin doughnuts original and can't tolerate it. I throw it up with out even finishing one cup three days in a row. The only thing i can think of is that starbucks is a darker roast and therefor has less acidity? any Ideas and has this happened to anyone else?

Same here Dunkins blend has some hidden enhancement chemicals in it that some WLS and even Non WLS people can not tolerate -

i have a friend that can drink coffee by the gallon but throws up the Dunkin right away

Wow! IDNKT!!! Thanks for the info. I hate their blend's taste...but sorry you are upchuckin'! No fun! Hey you might try BP's new coffee. I think Alex just got in a new low acid organic coffee. I want to try it. Cuz you know...I love low acid. :D

Have you tried Whole Foods coffee? They have a bunch of dark roast and are surprisingly cheap .. 2lbs for $10. 😬 this is what I drink pre op... I hope I don’t get sick off of it after surgery (doc is fine with caffeine)

There's very little difference in acidity between dark and light roasts. You might wanna try cold brew.

Be wary of additives or hidden sugars...

I just buy a half decent brand from the local supermarket and add hot Water and I'm good no issues at all... Been drinking coffee regularly the last couple of WEEKS!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
