Coffee Drinkers, where are you?

My web md page says that coffee is good for women and it cuts down on cardiovascular heart disease for them, I have 2 cups each morning. with 2 splendas and 2 tsp. creme,a little insulin on the side:) ,and I aint a gonna stop!,if Im out of coffee I will drink hot tea


#42

Since I started this topic, I’ve gone down in my intake of coffee, but I still wake up to a black coffee every morning and, when I get a chance, another one at some point during the day -typically after lunch. If it is a capuccino, I bolus to cover the milk in it, but otherwise it continues to not cause a spike in my BG.


#43

Yeah…it’s a sad, sad, sight when I don’t have my morning coffee. It’s mostly the first cup I crave…it tastes S-O-O-O GOOD!


#44

Don’t even think about coming near me in the morning unless you have a mug of coffee in your hand for me, not a pretty sight, at least not till I’ve had 2 at least


#45

Do any of you drink tea ? Maybe I should get outta here !


#46

Yep…drink tea also! Usually right after lunch…L-O-V-E a good Earl Grey. The best way…in a steaming hot tea pot. Sigh!!! Know what else is yummy…Chai tea…I usually do that one in the evening.


#47

Green tea for lunch and coffee the rest of the day. I have type 2 and coffee didn’t make a scrap of difference to it, I used to drink at least ten to twelve cups a day but now about four or five, if I miss coffee for one day the migraines come back so more coffee for me.


#48

Hey Alice…a total lack of coffee will give me a migraine also…as will many other things, incidentally!


#49

morning Linda, lack of chocolate for about three days also brings on the migraines, so there always a stash somewhere in the house and a pantry full of coffee. Lindt chocolate make a coffee flavoured one so I can have the best of both without the migraines. Its made with dark chocolate so it doesn’t bother the levels too much. Still haven’t heard from Flo.


#50

I’ve always enjoyed dark bitter chocolate, but recently I have found that they trigger migraines (in me)…sure…take something ELSE away! I too have not heard from Flo…I sent her another message just today.


#51

Morning Debb…A painless migraine…where can I buy one of those!!! The “curvy white light” sounds almost like an aura, doesn’t it! My migraines are often preceded with enhanced colours and sounds. The teas that you drink…are they decaf., or herbal?


#52

I’ve experienced similar patterns…swirly, a bit like an Indian print (as in from India)…no…this was not an LSD trip! Anyhow, there was no colour…but shades of grey/beige. These too coming from the outside edge and sort of “radiating” toward the centre…had it been in colour, it would have been rather pretty. Well, March break is unfortunately coming to a close…back to the grind on Monday. Two weeks is just long enough to lull you into a sense of " akuna matada" (Remember the Lion King?!!)…It’s a sense of being pulled between “I-could-do-this-forever/I-need-to-get-back”…anyhow, it allowed me to re-connect with some of my girlfriends…meeting up with another lady this aft., but first, I might go for a little walk…nice day out there , a little crisp…but with brilliant sunshine…take care on-line-girlfriend…luv, linda.


#53

Oh…about the blueberry tea…I’ve had some, and didn’t care for it…but the natural health section of most big grocery lines will likely have it…as would health food stores.


#54

try green tea in the morning, doesn’t seem to affect the levels to much

#56

I drink coffe: 3 mugs of black coffee and the last at night I put some water in it . And I drink tea more than 3 mugs. I like Ceylan,Lapsang Souchong teas and white tea. I don’t think it affects my levels .


#57

I am a macchiato addict! I am trying to switch to espresso (no cream, maybe a little splenda :)) but I’m a sucker for cream and sugar. I used to drink macchiati all day long, in between my classes. I am usually pretty “don’t pollute the vessel” but when it comes to coffee the same rules do not apply! Haven’t noticed any huge affect on my bg anyway. There is always some “new study” about how “coffee is evil” or “coffee is the elixir of life.” I tend to err on the side of “coffee is the nectar of the gods.” :wink: That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!


#58

Sometimes I drink it instead of eating a snack to try and curb my appetite ! - sometimes I end up with a high blood sugar - not quite sure whether thats due to the sweetners I pop into it or due to some sort of a high carb milk that may be in the machine ! Can’t do the really nice ones like Latte - too much carb !


#59

I drink a half a glass of warm or steamed mill (6g of carbs) and a very strong espresso every morning - I love coffee, and that usually keeps me happy. And then sometimes an ice coffee if someone brings me one later…

It’s usually the layer coffee that seems to be more unpredictable as far as the glucose goes - I say stick with strong good coffee, skip the other five cups…
