Let's say that I'm fasting for 24 hours, from last night's dinner to dinner the next day.
So from 6pm to 6pm the next day.
My real question is, if I squeeze half a medium/large sized lemon into a cup mixed with nothing else but warm water, is that enough to break my fast?
Or will the effects of the lemon be so little, that it won't bring me out of my fasted state?
The inverse of this question is "how many calories are necessary to break a fast.". To which I would reply, why are you fasting?
Squeezing lemon into warm water is the equivalent of tea or coffee and will not break your fast. If your true goal is to see how far you can push it, then I would suggest doing shorter fasts and working on your limits rather than try to "beat the system"
Nothing to worry about
