My understanding is no. But eating something that passes undisturbed through the stomach, such as a tbsp of raw tapioca starch, is a small violation of the fast.

Nutrient timing is largely BS. Seriously, what you eat matters 1000 times more, and if you don't have that dialed into the highest degree, there's no point considering nutrient timing.

The overall conclusion I'm reaching is that if you're not overeating, and everything you're eating is balanced and efficient then your body will just put it where it needs to go. I could be wrong of course. Lol, no help I guess.
