Default IF and supplementation

've maintained my habit of taking my multi-vitamin, C, and fish oil with my coffee in the morning.

Lately I've been thinking that maybe I should hold off until I start eating again. What is your opinion on this?

Intuitively, it makes sense to me, leaving your GI tract as empty as possible, in addition to the generally held opinion that it's best to take vitamins with food.

I typically fast from 9PM to 5 PM. I do take 1-2 tbs of heavy cream to lighten my coffee. I typically train around 2 PM.

Should I consider taking everything during the eating window? Or should I still split my fish oil dose between morning/night?

I do remember that Ori Hofmekler recommended supplementation on an empty stomach, for greater assimilation, but that might have been specific for glutamine, and Hofmekler's recommendations haven't necessarily been the most optimal.
