Depends..: Most vitamins are best absorbed when taken with food and cause nausea when taken on an empty stomach. Fasting is usually for a short time; therefore, prudence suggests that waiting until your next meal would be best.

Carnitine & tea: Carnitine is an Amino Acid found in red meat, but is also a supplement. It is a necessary cofactor that your body must have to convert body fat to energy. Carnitine (500-1500 mg/day) combined with a low carb diet and exercise should help lose weight fast. Add green tea for extra fat burning effect. It helps raise body temp to burn fat faster.

Take your vitamins: in the morning to help you through the day. If taking vitamin C take some in a.m. and p.m. because it only lasts about 12 hours in your body. If taking red yeast rice take it toward evening because we make most of our cholesterol during sleep. Peace and good health.

What are some good vitamins that I can take ? ( besides what's over the counter )

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. To assess your nutritional status you can take a Micronutrient test from www.spectracell.com
