Yes.

Preaching aside, Jesus’ words and offer of the “Abundant Life” are well over 2,000 years old. Yet even in today’s fast-moving society, His Word is relevant to the 21st century as He offers us wisdom, which has the power to transform our lives.

Vitamins per se will not prevent Ketosis as they contain no source of energy. Thus your body will continue to need energy from internal sources. Once the carbohydrate is used up, it will have to use fat.

But vitamins may make your brain believe you are not fasting, thus it may try to remain anabolic. In that case it is much more likely to use muscles than fat.

I don't use vitamins other than what is in real food, unless there's a real disease. Then they are about as useful as antibiotics: Should be used at the lowest effective dosage for the shortest effective period of time.

No it will not prevent ketosis.

Supplementation during fasting is a personal choice after all. And different doctors hold different opinions on it. For instance Dr. Voronina ( www.tvrejuvenation.com/?ref=background ) for instance, who has been treating patients with fasting since 1971, does prescribe supplements while her patients fast. Of course she has them perform blood work and other necessary tests first to determine deficiency. When she personally fasted for 20 days on water she took daily supplementation of Potassium and Magnesium.

May the Energy you free from digesting serves your Body and Spirit well!

Working during a fast is indeed good.. but that does NOT call for selected chemicals such as the handful labelled "vitamins" (Several of these incidentally are not Vital Amines at all)..

I have measured the response of Magnesium levels in about 6000 patients over about 14 years and found an INCREASE during the fast. Any supplement in this respect will trigger elimination and actually cause a deficiency..

Sure I am a bit of an extreme purist but the commercial marketing of things to be put INTO you when the disease is trying to get OUT.. it just does not fit.
