  1. I have no clue to the answer to your question but your question beggs this question of my own:
    If you are using 4 oz of almond milk in your coffe,e just how much coffee is it your are drinking at a time since the term a cup of coffee used to be based on a coffee cup holding a cup of coffee, ie 8 oz?

  2. Typically it does take approximately 50 calories to break a person’s fasting state so 30 calories should be safe to not interrupt this. Of corse this will vary person to person. Since I don’t know for certain at what calorie count my personal fasting state will “break” I tend to keep it well below 50 when wanting to maintain a “fast”. After a fast is broken it will take about 12 hours of fasting again for the body to reach optimal fat burning.

  3. To me, fasting means fasting. If you’re consuming calories, you’re not fasting, period.
    The only exceptions are medical. For example, if your doctor prescribes pills, you take them, regardless of whether they have calories. And if you have prescribed medication that you need to take with food, or with milk, or something like that, then you take your medication as prescribed, even if you’re supposed to be fasting. Doctor’s orders and prescribed medication always comes first.
    If you just want milk (of whatever kind) in your coffee, though, then that’s not fasting. You need to decide what’s important to you and whether your reason for wanting to fast takes priority over your desire for milk in your coffee. There’s no number of calories that “doesn’t count” when you’re fasting; do it or don’t, but don’t try to rules-lawyer your way around it.

  4. The only way your really going to find out for sure is once you’ve drunk some of it after about 30 minutes do a blood sugar test if your blood sugar has gone higher than no you shouldn’t drink Almond milk during a fast. Almond milk definitely has less carbs or calories than milk however that doesn’t mean it won’t spike your blood sugar levels.
