On Mark Sisson's Primal sight where they're all into IF, they insist that coffee with cream does break an IF fast. Anything with calories will provoke an insulin response from the body and start the digestive process, so this makes sense.

It's like when I go for my fasting blood draw, I can drink my coffee black (which is what I prefer), but a person couldn't have coffee with any type of creamer.

well, one could always use the idiographic vs. nomothetic test--see how it is for you and you alone.

Many of us who do fast-5 have a little heavy cream or coconut oil during our fasting periods. No way could I go 21 hours without food AND my coffee w/heavy cream.

Here's what Dr. Herring, who invented fast-5, says about cream in coffee: " If someone has to have something in his/her coffee, I generally recommend real cream (not half-and-half) because real cream is nearly pure fat, which unlike protein and carbohydrates, will not trigger insulin release (psychological effects may come into play, though).
It only takes a little cream to get the "creamy" effect, so using as little as possible to get the necessary drinkability is a good option if black coffee isn't acceptable."
