Intermittent Fasting: Increase the Power of Your Fast with These 4 Drinks- Thomas DeLauer…
Drinks: Apple Cider Vinegar + Lemon
Coffee with Stevia
Zevia (Soda & Sparkling Water)
Green Tea with Ginseng

Apple Cider Vinegar + Lemon:
ACV- Halts the digestive process by inactivating the production of certain digestive enzymes responsible for digestion.
Controls blood glucose levels and with a balanced blood sugar level, you’re much less likely to experience intense, hard-to-resist sugar cravings throughout the day (1,2)
Lemon- Lemons contain a soluble fiber known as pectin that benefits the body’s detoxifying capabilities by regulating the body’s use of sugars and cholesterol; improves gut and digestive health

Coffee With Stevia:
Caffeine- Caffeine acts on the central nervous system and causes a release of the neurotransmitters dopamine and epinephrine – increases thermogenesis and fat oxidation. In one study, twelve healthy, normal weight men participated in a four-way crossover, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study. Treatments were administered as tablets of 500 mg Green Tea Extract, 400 mg tyrosine, 50 mg caffeine, or placebo.
Results: Caffeine induced a thermogenic response of 6% above baseline compared to placebo and only caffeine was thermogenic in the given dose and caused no hemodynamic side effects

Chlorogenic Acid (CGA)- Chlorogenic acid is a polyphenol antioxidant found in coffee – reduces blood glucose and insulin levels after a meal.

Zevia- Zevia is an all-natural zero calorie soda made without artificial sweeteners, is non-GMO, kosher, gluten-free, vegan and contains no colors, dyes or phosphoric acid. Considered an all-natural alternative as it uses stevia, a herb from the sunflower family, as its sweetener and is up to 300x sweeter than sugar.

Stevia- Lowers insulin and glucose due to its lack of metabolization – steviol glycosides pass through the upper gastrointestinal tract fully intact.

Lowers Blood Pressure- One study from the journal Clinical Therapeutics conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in 174 patients – patients took either 500 mg of stevioside or placebo, 3 times per day. After two years, the group taking stevioside: Systolic blood pressure went from 150 to 140 mmHg and Diastolic blood pressure went from 95 down to 89 mmHg.

Iced Green Tea with Extra Ginseng:
Ginseng- Study/ The International Wound Journal found that ginseng supplementation increased the growth of wound-healing cells (fibroblasts) and increased collagen synthesis in human dermal cells.

  1. Is this dude endorsed my Zevia? He sure made a case for how great that super-expensive stuff is. I buy the diet Shasta soda's from Winco for $2.98 a 12-pack. It is sweetened with sucralose and not aspartame, so with CRV that comes to about $.30 per can. Where as Zevia at Walmart is like $6 a six pack or $1.05 per can. I did see it at Target though for $5 a six pack but I think the flavors were limited. You choose….

  2. I fasted for 20 hours, ate 6 beef tacos with avocado onions and cilantro and Chile and I'm fasting again lol…. Why do I feel I may not be doing it right?

  3. I looove your videos. It's just that your video clip inserts are often completely irrelevant to what you're saying and it's funny distracting 🤣. Dear editor, pls dont feel pressured to put unnecessary video inserts. We love seeing this guy anyway. 😉

  4. When your stomach's empty I hear that coffee damages a couple things on your body. Like destroys our digestive organs since it would release some acid? Im not sure

  5. Mr Stretch marks,,, these craps that you try to promote are processed and UNHEALTHY! You are just another jerk who try to make money by promoting big factory crap drink.

  6. Hi Thomas!

    You mention aspartame and diet sodas. But you never actually say that it breaks fasting or not. You do not list it as a no – go in the "What Breaks a Fast and What Does NOT Break a Fast – The Official Video" either.
    I like Zero Coke. In a manageable volume like 1 – 2 glasses in a 16+ fast, is it ok to drink zero coke?
    Not light (silver) or normal (red) … the black ones 🙂
