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.

Your fear of carbs is unfounded, no one develops diabetes from eating natural carbs, some doctors even cure diabetes with high carb diets. If your trying to maintain weight your doing yourself a disservice by limiting carbs.
