Does Laird Creamer Break a Fast?

When determining whether or not something will break a fast, you want to hone in on the net grams carbs and protein numbers.


Both protein and carbs can spike the storing hormone insulin. When insulin gets spiked, this throws the body out of the state of fat burning and will break a fast.


So how much protein/carbs should you be sticking to during the fast?


There's not a specific number of grams that will apply to every single person. However, as a good rule of thumb I recommend the "one gram rule" in the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle. This means having no more than a combined one gram of protein and/or carbs.


So let's take a look specifically at the various Laird's Coffee Creamer products.

All of the powdered creamers (with the exception of the Pumpkin Spice flavored creamer) comes in at 1 gram of net carbs per 1 teaspoon. Based on the one gram rule, you would need to stick to less than 1 teaspoon of Laird's creamer (around 3/4 tsp. or less) to be in the clear. For the Pumpkin Spice flavor, you would need closer to 1/2 teaspoon or less.


However, for the liquid Laird's creamer, you'll want to stick to no more than 1 teaspoon to stay under 1 net gram of carbohydrates. The one caveat is their unsweetened liquid creamer. This option contains zero grams of carbs or protein and therefore can be used up to 1 tablespoon for the recommended serving.
