Answered: can I drink black coffee during an intermittent fast?
This is a topic on which many experts are split. However, here’s what I’m going with.
I asked Dr. Dale Bredesen (The End Of Alzheimer’s) and he gave me an emphatic yes on this. He said it’s all about promoting autophagy and coffee will not affect that.
NB - the moment you put anything else into this coffee - milk, sugar, anything - that switches on the metabolism, the intermittent fast is then deemed to be over.
