None, Real Food Best: Vitamins are all single molecule cofactors. The human genome has not maintained instructions for every single step to manufacture; typically missing only a single step.

Weight loss: Weight loss as described above is not particularly healthy nor sustainable. Most guidelines say that caloric intake for men should not fall below 1500 calories per day. The optimum number of meals is a matter of dispute in the literature, but that they should be nutritious is not. Drinking water is generally a positive in weight loss. Most sources say that losing 1-2 lbs/week is a good goal. ...Read more

It: It is not likely that you will have sustained weight loss just from fasting. This is because your body will interpret this as starvation and will "hold on for dear life" to the fat in your body to keep you going. Vitamins are not enough nutrition to prevent this problem. Eating only once a day probably also will not be effective. I have heard that sumo wrestlers actually make themselves gain weight by eating only twice a day, getting hungry between meals.
What happens specifically with eating very little (one of the ways the body adapts to calorie restriction) is that your thyroid metabolism changes, so that the T4 made by your thyroid gland converts to reverse T3 (liothyronine) instead of the active T3 (liothyronine) that your body needs to function. This is nature's way of protecting us from starvation. Anything your body interprets as "physiologic stress" will cause this phenomenon, including dieting, depression or illness. This is why an effective diet program must include enough total calories and balanced nutrition (complex carbohydrates, protein and fat) to give your body what it needs while inducing a fat-burning state. ...Read more
