RAMS RF inexplicably ignores the tradition of fasting and did not make public the recommendations on nutrition.In these circumstances, we can use «vegan pyramid" American Dietetic Association .

Alcohol is quite poorly absorbed after fasting.Therefore, refrain from any "libation" in addition to a glass of dry red wine at the banquet table.To aid digestion, you can take any tool with bifidobacteria, but only if you feel heaviness in the stomach.
