    No limit, although I've heard some coffees can contain 3-5 calories per cup…. to truly fast and illicit no response from your body, you truly need 0 calories. There's also some belief that coffee fires up your liver enzymes and your body prepares for food, but from a dietary standpoint, it should be fine. I'm not an expert – this is just what I've read and heard.

    Different research shows that you can have up to 50 calories without breaking the fast so depending on why you are fasting may be up to 1 depending on how heavy-handed you are with cream and sugar.

    Calories of any kind break a fast, but if drinking coffee means you last longer, then do it. If the ultimate goal is fewer calories in a day then coffee with stevia can be a great tool. Make sure it’s black though!

    Just use non-calorie sweetener and no cream or milk. If you are addicted to coffee, you’ll still enjoy this.

    I have been using Splenda packets that have two calories, but one is good for a 12 oz coffee and that many calories are nothing. As long as it has very low or no calories and doesn’t have a foul aftertaste it should be fine.
