  1. Instead of instant coffee can I use regular coffee? If I use this do I still need to add the water?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Kehau! We’ve never tired with regular coffee, but it might work. I would try to make sure it’s really strong or use espresso.

  2. Clicking on the Amazon link to chia seed, it shows it has 13g of carbs and 8g if fiber. But your post mentions 8g of carbs and 8g of fiber. Did I click the wrong chia seed Amazon link?
