Top 4 Drinks That Make Intermittent Fasting EASIER – Drink This, Not That!

The Science Of Six Pack Abs:

I’m talking about what to consume and what NOT to consume when it comes to intermittent fasting. Thomas DeLauer here today with to get right down to the science, as always, of what things you need to be taking in that will not break your fast and that need to be eaten during the eating window.

Let’s get right to it:

0:20 – What CAN you consume while you’re intermittent fasting? – 0:20

#1 – 0:40 – Apple Cider Vinegar.
The acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar helps with mineral uptake in the body. That’s crucial because while in a fasted state your body technically is being mineral deprived.

1:35 – Acetic acid helps your body absorb as many nutrients and minerals as it can.
1:45 – Polyphenols act as a prebiotic-type substance, increasing the amoung of healthy bacteria in the gut, such as Lactobacilius and Bifidobacteria.

#2 – 2:07 – Sea Salt Water
Do NOT drink sea water – rather, add sea salt to your water throughout the day.

2:25 – Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a 1 gallon jug of drinking water.
2:34 – Sodium/Potassium Ion Exchange & Sodium/Potassium ATPase
3:04 – You can also add a small amount of cream of tartar
3:20 – How to tell if you’re potassium deficient:
3:26 – Craming up during a workout = potassium deficiency; cramping up after a workout = magnesium deficinecy

#3 – 3:41 – Green Tea
Tea will not break a fast.

3:51 – Epigfallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) & Cholecystokinin (CKK).
CKK increases the level of dopaine in the brain, which decreases hunger.
4:13 – Catecholamine

#4 – 4:33 – Coffee
Coffee will not break a fast either. Remember this is in reference to black coffee, free of artificial or natural sweeteners, creamers, milk, etc.

4:48 – Black coffee blocks adenosine.
When adenosine is blocked the amount of other neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine actually increases, leading to enhanced firing of neurons.
5:08 – Coffee increases the number of receptors for Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
5:50 – Despite increasing receptors, caffine also inhibits the release of GABA, which contributes to the feeling of alertness.

5:56 – What NOT to drink during a fast – 5:56
6:18 – Creamers and sugars will break your fast, so no creamers, sugar, or sweeteners in your coffee.
6:23 – BCAA’s or branched-chain amino acid mixes will break a fast.
6:45 – Avoid sugar alcohols – e.g. diet sodas containing truvia

It’s essential that you stick within these rules to keep in a fasted state to truely get all the benefits from I.F. Have you been putting those additives into your coffee? Drinking BCAA’s? Or even drinking those “zero” energy drinks? Let me know if you have by leaving a comment via Facebook at
