Does drinking 2-3 cups of Black Coffee, disrupt my fasting state?

I also only eat in the evening after Bulletproof coffee in the morning and have been losing weight at a steady pace.

This is way too subjective to ask. Fasting is largely dependent on your goals.

And while we're on the topic, which one is better? 1 24 hour fast per week or 2 16 hour fast per week?

From the LeanGains Guide:

""* No calories are to be ingested during the fasted phase, though coffee, calorie free sweeteners, diet soda and sugar free gum are ok (even though they might contain trace amount of calories). A tiny splash of milk in your coffee won???t affect anything either (??-1 teaspoon of milk per cup at the most - use sparingly and sensibly if you drink a lot of coffee). Neither will sugar free gum in moderation (~20 g).""

http://www.leangains.com/2010/04/leangains-guide.html

From Marks Daily Apple:

"Coffee is actually beneficial for fat-burning, especially during a fast. One study found that an infusion of epinephrine ??? a hormone which coffee increases ??? during ???starvation??? enhanced its lipolytic and thermogenic effects. In other words, fat-burning and metabolism up-regulated in response to epinephrine (more so than usual). Epinephrine also lowers appetite, which can be extremely helpful for people trying to stave off hunger during a fast. Tea, and anything non-caloric, is also fine.

Adding a pure fat source won???t ???take you out??? of the fasted state, and it may take the edge off the hunger, but it will reduce the body fat you burn by a bit."

In other words, drink as much coffee during your fast as you can and if you want to make it even more ketogenic ramp up your intake of coconut oil during the fast.

The caffeine may actually give your metabolism a boost and burn more fat.

It won't... Actually many people drink coffee to reduce the appetite.

No. It's negligible.

I drink black coffee with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil every morning. I eat dinner and fast the rest of the time, I feel great!
