Im trying this diet and on fast days leave my only meal to the evening. Is this the smartest way of doing it? Also coffee? Is it allowed? And please can I have milk in it and still get the benefits of this diet? And also sugar?

You need to keep to the calorie count. Sugar is very high in calories.

Coffee and tea - and stevia, splenda etc - are fine and basically zero cals, not worth counting.

BUT make sure you count any milk & sugar within your 500 FD (Fast Day) allowance.
Easiest way: The evening before, put your total milk and sugar for the FD into separate pots, then measure and calorie count.

tip: Unsweetened almond milk is v v low cal (3 cals for a 25 ml splash, have as many as you like) and doesn't raise insulin levels anything like cow's milk. V healthy drink.
