Are you allowed to have coffee while intermittent fasting?

So I hear people asking if it’s OK to drink coffee when doing the intermittent fasting and dieting plans? I got good news for you my friend. I drink coffee all the time and it has had no effect whatsoever on my ability to slowly drop weight. 

You can safely drink coffee on Keto, vegan dieting, any low carb plan, basically any intermittent fasting protocol. Since you can do any of those plans on the Football Fans Diet that means you can drink all the coffee you want.

When it comes to the Football Fan’s Diet, black coffee is like Gatorade.

I should mention though that I drink my coffee black as black as can be. There is no sugar and no artificial sweetener in my cup of Joe.

I will have to say that coffee is the one thing I might not be able to give up on the intermittent fasting OMAD thing that I am doing on the Football Fan’s Diet. Therefore, I am glad you’re allowed to indulge to your heart’s content. I certainly do.

A recent article on AZ Big Media states that studies suggest coffee helps lower the risk of Type II diabetes, lower the risk of heart disease, and boost your metabolic rate to help you burn calories more efficiently. However, there are other studies caution that if you go beyond 3 - 5 cups of coffee a day, you could invite problems.

The Atlantic Journal Constitution posted an article on its site recently that describes a study that found drinking six or more cups of caffeinated coffee a day could increase your risk of cardiovascular disease by 22%.

So all you caffeine addicts out there go ahead and enjoy your dark, medium, or light roast of coffee—3 to 5 cups should carry you to meal time and you are doing intermittent fasting, OMAD, then you got the green light.

Just don’t put anything in it. If you’re used to putting something in it, don’t. Drink it black. 

You don’t like it black?

It might take a little getting used to but having black coffee without sweetener develops a special taste of its own. You’ll come do enjoy it. 

On that note I got beer to drink since my feeding window is upon me. So if you’re drinking coffee right now, this is where I say good day to you and hello to my beer drinking friends—at least for the next few hours.
