Although fasting can mean different things depending on your diet plan, the typical definition for intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. There are a lot of different eating patterns called “fasting methods.” One is the 16/18 method, that involves skipping breakfast and only eating between 1pm-9pm followed by a 16-hour fasting period. Another common intermittent fasting method is the eat-stop-eat. This one involves fasting for 24-hours typically once or twice a week.
No matter your fasting method, it can be easy to go without food but what about coffee? And if coffee is allowed, can you add anything to it without breaking the fast? Keep reading to find out what you can add to your coffee when intermittent fasting.
For starters, it is said that coffee can be had while fasting since coffee is fat-free and almost no calories. However, what you put in your coffee does matter and can mess with your fasting if you’re not careful. In other words—if you don’t like to drink your coffee black, try adding in a creamer that’s low in calories or sprinkle in some cinnamon or nutmeg.
