    the fact that literally EVERY SINGLE legitimate person out there who has studied fasting says you shouldn't use vitamins on a fast. thomas delauer, loren lockman, dr. jason fung, nobel prize winning scientists and doctors.

    the entire point of fasting is to NOT get vitamins in the first place lol. that is the idea. it is to make your own body stronger. it would be like taking your kid to teach them to drive and then you steering for them. makes no sense at all and defeats the purpose.

    also insulin has zero calories but if you inject even a tiny amount during a fast you break the fast instantly. i posted that study in that fasting thread. so just saying something has 0 calories so it won't break a fast is horrible advice. diet soda has 0 calories too, so does sparkling water. but both most certainly break a fast.

    if you want to get 100% out of your fast then do it 100%. if you want to get half ass benefits then do it half ass.

    there are very very specific vitamins that you can take that won't break a fast. but you have to be super careful using anything off a shelf.

    vitamin B1 is one that you can use. also creatine believe it or not is okay although you really don't need it

    also electrolytes like magnesium, salt and potassium are okay. but again you really don't need it. it isn't gonna enhance your fast but will help with dehydration

    Taking vitamins is no calories nor does it secret insulin so I think it's absolutely imperative to take them. Nothing better than N2GUARD.

    Ask yourself what's more important -- adhering to the theoretical rules of what is technically a fast, or being optimumly nourished so you're strong, healthy and able to grow as much muscle as possible.

    Only taking in calories would ever break you out of a fast, as long as you are not having any calories you'll be fine!



    My brand produces two multivitamin products for Bodybuilders you can take while fasting.

    Use N2Guard during cycle:

    Use 3D-Multi when you are OFF cycle:
