During the fasting period, am I only allowed to drink black tea and water? No sugar or milk?

Can you have sweetener in black tea/coffee during fasting?

I would avoid any sweeteners personally.

'Clean' fasting is best as it stops your insulin from spiking. I only have water or black tea and coffee when fasting. When I first started it though I couldn't cope without milk in either. Took me a while to get to this stage!

Can you have herbal teas?

I have herbal teas when I'm fasting.

I've just started doing this and gave back coffee, water or herbal tea in the fasting stage.
