Hi all, I take a fair number of supplements, mostly to support keeping my T2D under control. I also take 1000 mg of Metformin, split dose 500/500 with lunch and dinner. I have recently begun to experiment with alternating TMAD with OMAD and it really fits my life and appetite perfectly. On OMAD days I have one large meal mid-day, over about a 2 hour period.
For those who fast, my question is about taking medication and supplements. Do you break your fast to take supplements and/or meds? We always hear that it’s better not to take them on an empty stomach, but is there any science behind this? Last night I was not hungry at all, but I ate a keto friendly snack just to get something in my stomach to take my Metformin and pm supps.
P.S. the reason I break up my supplements into AM/PM is that some of them are better for energy and others for sleep.
