    There's some debate to drinking coffee or black coffee in a fasted state. Some people think that 50 calories or less won't take you out of a fasted state, while some think anything but water breaks your fast.

    What about fluoride in our tap water? I would think anything that goes through a digestion process would take you out of your fast but I'm not sure how your body handles fluoride.

    Is fluoride a carbohydrate, a protein, or a lipid?

    How exactly does your body extract calories from something that does not include any macronutrients at all?
