    If you take vitamins in liquid form it's still fasting. Some herbs count as that too.

    read my thread where i talk about this. https://www.evolutionary.org/forums/...log-81856.html

    vitamins are a bad idea if you want to get the full benefits and is completely counter productive. i explain why below

    MULTI VITAMINS

    the next one is multi vitamins. this one should be obvious if you understand what fasting is all about. but if you aren't that knowledgeable on fasting you might think 'hey i need my vitamins during a fast right?'.. well WRONG. the whole reason behind a fast is to STRESS YOUR BODY OUT to make it stronger. when you weight train that is what you do to your muscle to make it stronger. the body is the same way with fasting. so throwing vitamins at your body makes zero sense. but let's talk about the science. SIRT's are longevity genes that get triggered while fasting. when you take an antioxidant it actually blocks that trigger effect and the vitamin takes over. so the body becomes weaker cause it is depending on the vitamin and not the actual body cells to do the work. also most vitamins work better with food anyway, so save them for during your eating window and DO NOT TAKE THEM while in your fasting window. so i hope this makes sense why taking multi vitamins on a fast are a bad idea so please don't do it!

    the only things you can mess with while water fasting are WATER and electrolytes. that is it.

    Fasting is water fasting I assume, that's literally water only and electrolytes, like salts.

    Does it have caloric content? If yes then it breaks a fast. If not then no. It also depends who you ask apparently. Strictly my opinion based on my own experience fasting for years is that people think way too deep into it and it makes no difference.
