  1. Not if you are trying to fast till dinner. Milk has protein carbs and fat. Sugar has lots of carbs. Each of those individually will break a fast. Let alone both. 2gm of protein (1 spoon of milk) will stop autophagy dead in its tracks. The lactose in milk and the sugar will get insulin spiked and end any fasting from that direction.
    To keep fasting while drinking palatable coffee – Try this – coffee with butter, ghee, coconut oil, heavy whipping cream, cocoa butter and a tiny bit of sucralose. Not all of those, 1 or 2 as you prefer.
    My coffee usually is cocoa butter and regular butter. For tea I use heavy whipping cream. They should have nothing but pure fat. Anything else will stop autophagy and bring up insulin. Pure fat just gives you a bit of energy, I usually start with tea with 15gm Heavy cream, and tiny bit of sucralose, 50 cal from fat to get me started for the day. Then I can run on black coffee with sucralose through 6pm. I eat between 6 and 8pm and am in bed by 10.
    Sucralose is not the most ideal sweetener. Stevia is. However I can easily tell that bitter minty hit with stevia in coffee and in tea so I avoid it. Sucralose tastes exactly like sugar to me, but its 1000 times sweeter than sugar, 90% of it goes through your system unprocessed. So its basically in 1/10,000 the amount of sugar.

  2. Ive never fasted, im not part of any religion or any group that does fasting, i have heard of fasting through friends and its part of their beliefs and what not. (Not something i consider a great belief but hey im not king of the earth). I am fully against religion thats my choice and i stick to it, but believe what ever you choose thats your choice, as for milk and sugar with coffee while fasting? I dunno are you even allowed coffee while you are fasting? Cause if your allowed coffee i imagine milk or cream, and sugar would be acceptable, all i know from fasting is i used to watch my friend in highschool suffer for how ever long fasting lasts for, at school he would sit with us at lunch and talk and id always ask arent you hungry. Of course he was but beliefs are beliefs ands thats that, i still to this day will never understand the reasoning behind it, (dont try to explain i wont read i know all i need to know about faith).

  3. Well if its your eating window yes you can if your still on the fast the moment you drink the coffee with milk and sugar you blood sugar will spike and your fast is now over. So yes during the actual fast avoid drinking any kind of liquid with energy which includes, milk, fruit juice, smoothies, sports drinks, energy drinks, soda, wine, beer, sweetened tea or coffee.

  4. Only black coffee if it’s during your fasting period, no sugar, no milk, but that you should have understood. Is OK if you timed your eating period in the morning though.

  5. Some people say that it is ok to introduce calories during the fasting period as far as you keep them low, I do not agree. During the fasting period i think you should drink water and nothing else. If your goal is to fast until lunch it shouldn’t be to difficult to avoid calories for such a limited time.
    But if you don’t feel good eat something and try to fast tomorrow.

  7. No! A very small amount of milk is possible if it’s that or not fasting at all. But def no sugar! Black tea or coffee or green or herbal tea is fine

  8. You can pick your own schedule if you are doing a daily intermittent fasting pattern like 16:8. In fact, it is better to have your meals earlier in the day rather than the more common pattern of skipping breakfast. If you must have coffee and can’t drink it black, then go ahead and have your coffee with a healthy breakfast and set your eating window at 7 am to 3 pm.
    However, if you are choosing to have dinner with your family, then y…
