Default Multivitamins

I know they're no replacement for real food but does anyone know the science behind why ? Are they any good? What makes real whole food better ?

for a start, do some research on vitamin E.

What most folks think is Vitamin E is just tocopherol. however there is many more 'forms' of it in food.

eat healthy food, + still take a multivitamin. just don't avoid food because you are taking a vitamin pill.
1. Ketosis doesn't matter.
2. Strength training+Protein+DHA/EPA+veggies+vitamins&minerals DOES.
3. Search BEFORE you ask questions.
4. Use google as well - Add "". Google can find those short strings of letters.
5. You are not a rodent so follow up with pubmed ( use "+human" "-rat" "-mouse" modifiers
6. Check the STICKY threads.
7. use google to find all my posts.
8. Supplement evidence
9. Private message are cheerfully ignored.

Whole food has many other good stuff (i.e. phytonutrients) that either aren't available in a multivitamin, or science hasn't discovered yet.

Like Myles said, you can eat whole food + take a multivitamin just to be sure. After all, it's a supplement, not a replacement.
