    At the meal only. It can also lower blood-sugar drastically, so don't do it while fasting.

    Just plain black coffee and water for me since I gave up my horrible habit of "splashes" of foofoo creamer in my 2-4 coffees a day back in April. I hate all things that are artificially sweetened, lol. I don't even need to add cinnamon to the grounds anymore, even to the cheaper coffees. :-)

    I have a little black coffee in the morning, then around 1pm I'll have a little more coffee with one cream. Otherwise only water during fasting hours.
    With my meal I've been having about a half cup of this stuff, carrot-ginger-turmeric.
    Anyone else try it? I don't have much because of the sugar. The taste is unique but it has a good amount of potassium.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh Havent tried but sounds awesome! How long have you been using it? I have zero (almost lol... I don't have a spleen) immune system so I'm always up for this kinda stuff... Let us know!
  • jvcinvjvcinv Posts: 504Member Member Posts: 504Member Member
    I guess it's been a couple months now since I've been using it. I like it because it adds variety that I otherwise don't have in my diet.

    Does anyone love Bai like I do? I've recently been drinking alot of it- 5cal per half bottle. I'll have half a bottle during my fasting hours, is this hindering it in at way?

    Joe and all - question...so I pilfered this "It Works - Greens on the Go" packet from my parents house, and I'm dying to try it...it's 10 calories and 1 net carb - do we reckon this is enough to pull me out of fasting? I'm on a 72 hour fast and I'm getting every little thing I possibly can from it, so if it's going to trigger an insulin response, I'll just wait until Thursday to try it...let me know your thoughts y'all! Peace and Love <3

    Not really. I think you'd be okay. 10 calories isn't much.

    I made a hot chocolate tonight and added a tsp. of coffee and I have to admit that I really like it and I'm so surprised because I hate coffee, I'm happy that I finally found a way to drink it :p

    Would a splash of grape juice in water with ACV during fasting hours disrupt the fast?

    Yes.

    Has anyone had experience with "Good Girl Moonshine"? It is water with ginger and ACV in it. I sometimes add stevia.

    I make it in concentrated batches and then just put about 1T of concentrate in 8oz of water. This video shows how to make the concentrate, though I do not use exact measurements like she does:

    Am I correct that one of these will not break the fast? It's got to be super low calorie the way I make it, but I don't know about the ginger.

    I have room temperature water throughout the day, when I feel I should, but I make sure by the end if the day I gave had between 3 and 4 liters of water ( usually closer to 3). At dinner ( my one meal) I usually have a large homemade hot chocolate with milk or a large coffee with milk. Sometimes I put 3 to 4 teaspoons of brown sugar. Depending on how I am feeling. I have been pretty consistent with this routine for sometime and feel comfortable with this the most. O! And when its cold I have hot water instead, with a cup here and there of herbal tea with no sugar.

    My hot chocolate only has 4 carbs and 25 calories per serving and I only drink it right before or after my meal, not sure if it would be ok to drink it during my fasting hours?

    No worries. You are right past the 20-cal limit that determines if you get an insulin response, so I'd say it really doesn't matter.
