Important tips for intermittent fasting

Remember to stay hydrated. One thing we’ve found is that we tend to forget to drink water during our fasted blocks, since we aren’t eating. It’s a natural habit to drink water to cleanse the pallet or to enjoy with your meals. So be sure you’re getting adequate water.

Black coffee is acceptable on this intermittent fasting program, so long as there is no cream or sugar. We want to ensure that we don’t break the fast by ingesting foods.
