I was watching the Fasting Summit yesterday. All the talks were about intermittent fasting. There was a guy who was talking about starting your morning with bulletproof coffee or with lemon water or apple cider vinegar. He said that bulletproof coffee stops your intermittent fasting, because of the amino acids and that drinking lemon water or apple cider vinegar doesn’t do that.
I have understood the opposite.
So am I wrong or did I get it all wrong what he said, maybe I misunderstood the context he was talking about? (English is not my mother tongue)… I understand that anything but water stops the fasting when you thing about fasting being The Fasting with no consumption of anything… but drinking lemon water (carbs) vs drinking bulletproof coffee (fat)… fat doesn’t raise your blood sugar, but carbs do, right?
Would much appreciate it if someone can enlighten me with all of this 🙂
There are lots of opinions on this but I feel that liquids do not break your fast. I will drink bone broth or bulletproof coffee and still consider myself on a fast. 🙂 I think not consuming solid food is to give your body time to recoup! I think that if you want to alternate the types of fasts that might be a good idea too. Maybe you could try a full fast (just water) or Intermittent fasting with broth or fatty coffee. See what works best for your body and go from there!
I feel if it has carbs or sugars or calories anything of that nature it’s breaking your fast . Apple cider vinegar is good on while fasting also try sea salt with that or even green tea you have to keep your magnesium, potassium & sodium levels up bc you’ll start to get heart burn that’s what happened to me I just got off a 7 day fast FEEL GREAT BTW
