Intermittent fasting means you cannot eat during your fasting period. A good rule to remember is that anything with calories will break a fast such as soda, juice, and coffee or tea with any type of milk, creamer, or sweetener. However, you can have water and unsweetened coffee or tea without milk or creamer. In fact, coffee and tea (green tea in particular) help boost the benefits of intermittent fasting. Top drinks to optimize intermittent fasting include:
Black coffee, All teas, including herbal, Green tea, Water , Sparkling water.
Intermittent fasting is a way of eating that is simple and safe and based on robust evidence. Going without food may seem daunting at first glance, however, when you begin to do it, it is truly a powerful and easy way to optimize overall health, weight, brain health, and gut health. It is important to note that fasting can affect the way your body absorbs certain vitamins and medications, so you’ll want to take them with food.
