    Fasting can have multiple objectives/benefits. Two biggies are (1) autophagy and (2) fat loss.

    (1) is NOT interrupted by consuming fat--especially SCT/MCT fats like butter and coconut
    (2) is interrupted by consuming fat, by the precise amount consumed

    Since your goal is (2) I would focus more on overall satiety strategies. Maybe design a small arsenal of high-nutrient, macro-indifferent, low-calorie meals (kraut, soup, seafood, eggs, berries, etc.) that can displace a few others in the weekly rotation without interrupting your medication. The "last 10" are always going to be slow.

    I get your point Drumroll, so Im defeating the object somewhat! However, I will be in a calorie defecit at the end of the day, so must lose weight surely?
    Also, this might sound really stupid, but if Im in ketosis a short while after consuming a BP coffee, then can I safely assume the coffee I have had has burnt off?
    I'm not a complete idiot! There's parts missing!!

    If you're in ketosis it just means that you are using fat as your primary fuel source. It doesn't matter if that comes from your diet or your body really.

    It doesn't speak to the source of the fuel as much as the type of fuel.

    Yeah, it just means your body is metabolizing fat as fuel pretty efficiently. Dietary or body fat, it doesn't matter.
