    Just coffee and cream for breakfast?

    Primal Fuel
    Hello...

    I love my coffee and cream in the morning, but don't necessarily need breakfast everyday. I know the cream in the coffee interrupts an IF (so not like I am counting it as that), but is it okay just to have coffee and cream for breakfast?

    I think it is. Many people don't even do breakfast. Even if you add some cream to your coffee, while technically it may break your fast, I wouldn't worry about it at all. See how it goes.

    Some cream will blip your body out of a fasted state for a while, but you will still be reaping most of the benefits of IFing. I don't think that's a problem. The reason that I drink my coffee black is that I like it that way.

    I have coffee with coconut milk for breakfast a few times a week.

    I do IF everyday (most, at least) and I drink black coffee without a problem. As afsjesse said, it will probably change the chemistry that IF achieves, but it doesn't necessarily sound like that is a concern for you.

    It does cause a rise in blood glucose.

    is it the coffee or the cream which does that? i would think that the high fat content would mitigate any rise in blood glucose.

    It's the coffee and the fat does nothing to slow it down unlike consuming carbs with fat. It does the same thing to my non-diabetic wife (she tests her blood glucose for kicks since I have the gear on hand)
