I use 6 oz of Bananas & Cream Premier Protein and 2 Tablespoons of Flavorless Vital Protein collagen Peptides which in total adds 24 grams of protein to my coffee.

Strange the different advices we are all given... the day after my op I was given coffee by the hospital. Admittedly I found it disgusting, not sure if it was my taste buds as well as I had cut down on coffee prior to the op based on my own decision but I am back on it full time now :)

I always drank my coffee black with sweetener so stick with that minus the sweetener and just add in a scoop of vital Proteins collagen and it means I get some of my Protein requirement in also.

I also do a couple of cold shots of coffee with Alpro dark chocolate almond milk, a scoop of vital proteins collagen and scoop of Protein Powder over ice for a lunch sometimes. Works out at 21g protein.

Lots of people just mix Protein Shakes with their coffee. Lots of flavor options and it helps jump start your Protein too. I’m off to Amazon to search for your cold brew jar now. 😂

I just tried caramel Protein Shake in iced coffee and it is so delicious!!. When I switched to milk instead of Creamer I had to add so much Splenda to offset the bitterness that it didn’t really taste like coffee anymore. This way is so much better.

So what is a bariatric plan friendly way to drink decaff coffee? So before getting myself weaned off caffeine I enjoyed cold brew coffee with vanilla Creamer. My surgeon does not allow caffeine after surgery (or at least for awhile). So I have already got myself drinking Decaf cold brew with a splash of sugar free Creamer. What does everyone drink in their coffee that is bariatric plan friendly? Also yes I know everyones plan is different but Id like to hear ideas.

I put heavy cream in - old Keto diet habit and I don't eat enough fats as it is, then I add my Protein Powder and my digestive resistant maltodextrin. That's it! If I want more flavor, I use my "chocolate flavored" nespresso blend coffee..not any chocolate added its just the flavor of these particular Beans and I froth my heavy cream.

Also, make sure your coffee is truly Decaf, most have some. Look for those that are Water processed they contain the least amount of caffeine grams!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
