What would be the effect of consuming about 30 Calories, 3g Fat, 1g Carb, 0.5g Prot in a fasted state ? Would it change anything ?
How much is needed to 'stop' the 'fast' and initiate a metabolic change in energy source ?

Splash of milk/cream for your coffee will have such a minimal impact on insulin that it's no use making a big fuss out of it. I said 50 calories max to safeguard against people using boatloads of the stuff which is obviously not ok.
