    You shouldn't need any vitamins if you can meet most of your nutritional needs with food.

    I tend to eat most of my food before 6. What are you currently eating? Food journaling helped me a lot when I was starting, writing down everything I ate and when I ate it. It helped me really get a clear picture of what I was doing, and how I could improve. Maybe give it a try?

    Best of luck!

    I agree with the previous reply - it would be good if you can eat a variety of fruit, veg, lean protein, skim dairy, legumes, healthy oils from nuts, avocados and fish.

    However, if you think your diet is not all that comprehensive, maybe add a multivitamin tablet daily to fill the gaps. Fish oil is another good supplement, as are vitamin D and calcium (to prevent osteoporosis).
