Intermittent fasting question

I’m thinking of trying intermittent fasting 16:8, from 11am-7pm. My question is can I still have a coffee with 1 cream at 8am or does this completely screw things up?

  1. Only black coffee. Also don’t eat anything at all when you get up. Unless you get up at 11, don’t eat anything before then

  2. no cream or you’ll break your fast

    No cream anythibg over 10kcals breaks your fast check out kinobody on youtube

  4. Cassandra Donnell weren’t you doing IF?

    There is NO mix up, you had it right!

  6. Gail Decaire Gail Decaire says:

    Norman, what you wrote was perfect, “8am coffee wouldn’t interfere with his fast as his feeding was before the fasting time.

  7. I didn’t know if it was a he or she or some other anomaly

    Woodrow Beardsley when you said “they”
    I assumed you meant intermittent fasting individuals.

  9. Gail Decaire obviously. but this post stated those hours.

  10. Gail Decaire I’m aware you can do it any time, but those were the hours listed in the post 😛 Plus someone already answered saying I had the fasting hours/eating hours mixed up.

  11. Gail Decaire Gail Decaire says:

    Woodrow Beardsley that’s incorrect! You can do intermittent fasting at anytime to suit your lifestyle, graveyard shift, night shift workers or daytime.

  12. Gail Decaire Gail Decaire says:

    Yes you can because your fasting window is from 11am to 8pm.
    Your coffee is at 8:00AM(within your feeding window)
    Your feeding window is from 8pm to 11am . Coffee cream milk coconut milk , add
    Protein..doesn’t matter.

  13. Woodrow Beardsley ahh gotcha, figured I was miss understanding something (obv don’t do fasting :P) thanks!

  14. 11am – 7pm is when they eat, all other hours of the day they’re supposed not consume anything.

  15. Normand Frappier lol no one else noticed I guess

    If you need some caffeine in the morning, maybe try a matcha green tea powder instead of coffee. Perks me up way more than coffee and it wouldn’t mess up your IF

  17. I do 24 hour fasts lots . Helps cleanse your system and increase white blood cell count . Just drink water for 24 hours .

  18. Depends on what your goals are. If you’re a purist you should only consume water during a fasting period. Otherwise you can drink black coffee. If you consume less than 50 calories an hour it would not break a fast. So a splash of cream or milk in your coffee shouldn’t be too bad. I wouldn’t add any sugar because it would spike your glucose levels.

    I am doing this right now
    water – black coffee- tea
    (no extra add ins)
    it doesn’t take too long for your body to get use to it
    probably about 3 weeks or so and then you won’t even notice its time to eat

    Better to move to only black. One cream won’t totally take you out of a fast but black coffee is always better
