    Will taking Multi-vitamins during IF (fasting period) break the fast?

    Just curious if taking my vitamins and prescribed medication will break my fast?

    Since multivitamins and medication dont have macronuctrients ( protein, fat, carbs).

    I dont think it will break your fast. Thats what logic tells me, but i could be wrong.

    why would you take a multi on an empty stomach. you need fat to absorb vitamin A,D,E,K

    and what would happen if they did "break your fast"?

    would you magically no longer lose weight because you consumed 1 calorie 4 hours before you were supposed to break your fast?

    Let's assume you do 12 hour fasts.....you want to know the difference between:

    fasting 8 hours eating multivitamins then fasting for 4 more hours VERSUS fasting 12 hours then eating your multivitamins.......

    I'll just put my 2cents in here: you will see no significant difference in body composition.....now the absorption issue of the vitamins, well that is a separate issue.

    This is getting out of hand. People asking can they eat/drink/take x, y & z on IF. Just don't do it. Dieting isn't that complex.

    From what I understand IF is bogus anyway? It's more of a satiation issue when you can indulge in a lot of food in a moderately short time.

    And that satiation factor is one big part of why IF works great for some people. Easier to adhere to daily macros/calories due to less frequent hunger.
