So if you prefer drinking tea rather than anything else whether it`s green, black or herbal tea remember you wont need to drink water on top of that to meet your daily hydration needs. Just try to make sure there is no sugar or milk! ‘True tea` like black tea, green tea, oolong and white tea, come from the leaves of the tea plant and ‘herbal tea` like chamomile tea for example, are actually just infusions of flowers and herbs. They are all great for fasting though, as they have zero calories as well as great antioxidant properties. There are maybe 1-5 calories in a cup of tea, but it`s not enough to kick you out of a fasted state. However, don`t brew teas with fruit, berries or other types of seasoning that have carbohydrates in them. That sugar will most likely stop the beneficial effects of autophagy.
