Coffee for Post Bariatric Surgery and Beyond

Coffee for Post Bariatric Surgery and Beyond

Jun 24, 2019 Alex Brecher

That perfect cup of coffee may seem like a luxury, but does your daily cup fit into your diet? A flavored or blended coffee drink can have too many calories and too much sugar for your weight loss diet, and the caffeine and acid in coffee may be off limits after bariatric surgery. You do not need to avoid coffee or have it black, though. The BariatricPal Store has everything you need for that perfect cup of coffee without guilt.

The Truth about Your Daily Pick-Me-Up

Do you know what your daily cuppa joe has in it? When you order a blended coffee drink, you may be getting more calories and sugar than you thought due to the flavoring syrup, milk or cream, and whipped cream. Beverages such as mochas and lattes can have 600 calories and 60 grams of sugar, or more.

Newsflash: that is not the way to start your weight loss day! You would be better off having bacon and a doughnut for 340 calories and 10 grams of sugar, or a cup of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream for 300 calories and 32 grams of sugar.

Acid-Free, Caffeine-Free, and Protein Coffee

If you have had weight loss surgery, calories and sugar may not be the only problems with your regular coffee beverage. Many post-op patients are not allowed to have caffeine, and you may not be able to have acid, either. Both can aggravate your surgery wounds or your digestive system and increase risk for acid reflux.

The BariatricPal Store sells a range ofbariatric-friendly coffees. Choose from Acid-Free Regular and Decaf options available in whole bean and ground versions. You can purchase them in single bags or 3-pack or 6-pack options.

If you are scrambling to get enough protein or would prefer to simply drink your coffee instead of eating a full breakfast with eggs or another protein food, try our selection ofProtein Coffees. They come in a range of flavors and you can find single-serving or multi-serve packs. You can also choose from protein coffee to be brewed like regular coffee, or you can get coffee-flavored protein powder.

Turn Good into Great

If black coffee is not your thing, you have plenty of options that will not break the diet bank. The BariatricPal Store has all-naturalCalorie-Free Sweetener in spoonable and packet forms. They have stevia and/or xylitol so you can sweeten your coffee naturally and without carbs. Feel free to use as muchCalorie-Free Creamer as you like, with flavors including French Vanilla, Original, Hazelnut, Mocha, Caramel, and Sweet Cream.

A cup of coffee can be comforting, energizing, and oh, so bad for your diet, unless you choose the right ingredients. The BariatricPal Store has what you need to make the perfect cup for you and your health, so come browse!
