Thanks guys, I actually have a similar question:

After consuming Brain Candy first thing in the morning, how long should you wait to have breakfast?

Brain Candy has caffeine in it, which is not recommended for your condition. Maybe Power Drive would be a better idea? Just a thought. I have used both and would consider it a close second.

Use caffeine free with your condition.

I find the effects are blunted a good bit if you consume with food.

True, true. I had not thought of the caffeine-free version. My mistake.

I normally do 15-45 minutes.

Usually 20-30 minutes? Really, I just wait long enough that I can feel it’s working and then I’ll eat. It really does help jump-start the day.

Good luck with everything! Your gastritis must make things difficult for you, diet-wise.

I actually wait about 4 hours, although that’s absolutely not necessary. I take it around 7am each day, and don’t eat until about 11. Brain Candy is sufficient to get me through my mornings without food. My normal diet is essentially an intermittent fasting-style diet (16 hours fasting, 8 hour eating window), so Brain Candy works well that way for me.

This.

Brain Candy seems to really help with any fasting approach. I’ve noticed that as well. You don’t focus on the “omg I’m hungry”

yea but i can eat alot of things and dont get stomach issues but yea thanks i will try the caffe free and i love Power Drive!! OMG!
