  1. Lots of sites say you should drink caffeine black but if I do that then I definitely get nauseous. Can you intermittent fast (skip breakfast) but have some milk in your tea in the morning ?

    1. Unfortunately no, you should not add milk if you want to do true fasting. But I think a small amount would be unlikely to completely ruin the benefits.
