Fasting is really popular topic these days. If you haven’t hear about it before – fasting is preventing yourself from eating for some amount of time. It’s called eating hours window (typically 2-8 hours of eating) and fasting hours window (up to 16 hours). Fasting has lots of health benefits to it, it is also connected to autophagy (which is basically a process where your own cells are eating themselves to heal themselves).
1) Morning Coffee is a Myth
Maybe you’ve heard about all of that, or maybe you are just considering to start your journey with fasting. You might be wondering – ok, I want to fast, lose weight, feel better, be healthy, but what about my everyday morning cup of coffee- I don’t want to stop that, hell no!
2) Drinking coffee doesn’t break your fast.
First of all – black coffee won’t break your fast!
You have to remember, that black coffee is a low calorie beverage. Drinking water and drinks like that (including also various types of teas and zero-calorie drinks) will not break your fast.
One cup of black coffee contains only 3 calories and for most people it’s not enough to break the fast, so – don’t worry!
3) Coffee might boost your fasting results!
What is more – coffee might bolster the benefits of fasting.
Did you know that one? Yeah – first of all, there are metabolic benefits – according to many studies fasting connected with coffee intake may help you to reduce inflammation in your body.
4) Brain health
You might already know that – intermittent fasting is also great for your brain health and it can reduce risk of mental decline, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. In fasted state your body produces energy from fat in the form of ketones – this process is linked to improved brain function.
Caffeine in coffee may likewise promote ketone production, so hey, we’ve got a win-win situation down here!
