Supps when fasting ???


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Supps when fasting ??? within the Bodybuilding Supplements category.

Excerpt: Supplements advised to be taken when fasting ? I was wondering if I was fasting would taking supplements be considered to interrupt the fasting process? I am super curious if that would be something to consider when attempting to fast. Maybe I am wrong just wanted to see what the consensus is. I dont mind not taking supplements for a couple days either.

    It depends on who you ask. My opinion is that if the supplements in question provide no calories, than they do not break a fast any more than water does.

    depends on the supplements and depends on your goals

    if you want to achieve maximum autophagy you should take nothing but water and electrolytes (if needed)

    it isn't just about what supplements have calories or not. just because something does not have calories doesn't mean it wont' break a fast. artificial sweeteners most certainly break a fast even though they have no calories.

    a lot of people are so worried about 'losing gains' that they don't grasp what fasting is all about.. the point of fasting is to not put anything in your body to interfere with it repairing and regenerating cells.

    here is a video on fasting and calories https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1oabLBJRlA by Thomas Delauer

    you can still fast WITH calories. just depends on the food

    example: calories from pure fat? won't kick you out of a fast at all if your goals are pure fat loss. hence why the keto diet is so popular and works so well for people who actually do it right. what you can do is actually eat a spoonful of pure unrefined organic coconut oil and you will be fine.

    don't get me wrong though, if you want to get all you can from fasting then do nothing except water and some electrolytes, BUT 1 spoonfull of coconut oil has 120 calories and won't ruin a fast, but a diet soda has 0 calories and WILL ruin a fast completely. so it isn't all about calories

    Some supplements are fine. Some are not. Just depends on if it elicits an insulin release or not

    If you're electrolytes aren't maintained, you will have trouble staying hydrated, issues with cramping, etc.

    himalayan pink salt added to water will work wonders while fasting especially if you feel hungry or off

    you can also add in cream of tartar to water which is potassium

    and then there is also liquid magnesium 200-400mg a day
