    Coffee

    Post by Andy12345 on Sat Jan 23 2016, 10:58

    Hi, I have a question if i may

    I dont test these days and have no intention of doing so, hence this question

    I have got into coffee, have bought a coffee thingy and put coffee grounds into it at work, this makes lots of coffee and its really easy to pour a cup, so i am trending on coffee, i add milk but just a splash, i know the milk will have an effect but would coffee itself have an effect on blood sugar?

    thankyou in advance

    Shocked this isn't shock, its just my face

    What effect it has on you I would not know. It has no measurable effect on me. I never stopped drinking coffee and adding a small amount of milk in it, the amount of lactose in a splash of milk must be very low.

    Anyway chuffed to see you here mate. thumb-up

    I did wonder if your "coffee thingy" was a Christmas Gift ... but then you said you'd bought it... sounds a very good buy though.

    Now I do like the coffee George Clooney drinks



    ... but I'm sure your coffee is just as delicious !

    Great to see you here - have a good weekend

    All the best Jan

    The best advice I could give you as a coffee guzzler myself is to buy the 'Arla' brand Lacto free milk which all supermarkets stock as that has a lot less carbs per 100ml and it tastes just like normal milk,they've just removed the Lactose (Natural sugars) from it. Smile

    Do you know, full fat milk has less carbs than skimmed milk. Not a lot of people know that.

    I certainly think sales of the coffee George advertises increased - can't think why LOL!!!  sunny

    But here I am drinking 'Yorkshire' tea ... and somehow the tea adverts like the 'Yorkshire', 'Tetley' or even the 'PG' advert is not quite in the same league ... although the tea does taste ok

    Curiously I was just reading a post by Michael Eades (Protein Power) on coffee from around nine years ago. No, the post was nine years old not the coffee! The studies made it appear beneficial. Yet more recent posts by Andreas Eenfeldt (Diet Doctor) had him giving it up.

    Just like with eggs, opinion keeps changing. I suspect the reality is that it makes little difference one way or t'other. If you like it <raises hand> drink it. If you don't, don't. I can drink it up to bedtime and sleep like a log, my ex couldn't get to sleep if she drank it after noon, some people get hyped. Very likely much the same effects on BG in different people.

    Can't say coffee has any much effect on my BG, always have cream in mine much preferred to milk.

    I'm perverse, I actually prefer low fat milk in coffee. I keep the cream to dilute fruit (and more recently the Christmas pud I got half price by waiting until after Christmas).

    Compared to wheat it makes hardly a blip on my glucometer.

    This was the topic I was looking for. Actually I don't like coffee itself and I never needed it. Now, I don't why I found myself craving it! Crazy!!! The fact is that I adore the taste of skimmed milk over decaf cappuccino with some added stevia. It's satisfying almost like a meal. Am I addicted? Neutral

    I searched for typical lacto free milks and I saw that every kind of milk has around 5gr of sugar per 100 ml which is a lot. the funny thing is that even if it said to be lacto free, the amount of sugar is always the same. Well, you are lucky to have this brand Arla containing 2.6 cause it's great and in this case milk would be less harmful for me. Are there any other brands you suggest?

    Hi there ... have just seen you asked, were there other brands than Arla ...

    I'm not sure if this will be suitable for you, but it may be worth checking out.
    Is there anything in the Lactel range that may be suitable and that may be available for you?
