Getting used to Intermittent Fasting takes time and can get really confusing. After all, you want to do it right and ensure you’re not breaking the rules. So, what can you drink during intermittent fasting?
Given roughly 20% of our daily water intake comes from food, it is essential to stay hydrated during intermittent fasting, when your food intake is reduced. Therefore, it is important to drink more when you are fasting.
Also, by staying hydrated you reduce hunger and avoid many of possible intermittent fasting side effects like headache, constipation and dizziness.
