What Are The Rules Of Intermittent Fasting?

The rules of Intermittent Fasting involve not eating while you fast, followed by eating (enough) during your chosen eating window. However, from here, it's now important to determine what type of Intermittent Fasting you're using (as well as the food you'll be eating during your eating window).

One of the main perks of Intermittent Fasting is that you're reducing the frequency of your meals. This helps to also reduce the frequency of the storing hormone, insulin, spiking. If you are using Intermittent Fasting to achieve a weight loss goal, then your main objective is to keep your storing hormone, insulin, from spiking during your fast. With this in mind, you can still add certain ingredients to your morning coffee or tea without "breaking" your fast and still being in a state of fat burning. This includes Keto Coffee, Keto Matcha Latte and heavy whipping cream/unsweetened half and half in your coffee/tea.
