Can I still take my multivitamin on this diet? Also for a Caloric intake of 1200 calories a day how many bags would I need to purchase for a two-week treatment? Should I consume more than my normal caloric intake while on this diet?
I wouldn't take any additional vitamins while on the PED. The only other thing you should take is saccharmyoces boulardii.
One bag will last you 3 days on the 1200 calorie version. If you start loosing too much weight you can increase the does by a couple

How many grams of protein does this formula provide per serving?
1 scoop contains 7.5 g of free form amino acids. Protein is usually reported as amino acid molecular complexes. This formula is designed to be as easy as possible on the digestive system so proteins are broken down into their component amino acids.

would adding cinnamon interrupt the bacteria killing process?
Not sure if adding cinnamon is a good idea or not. Generally you keep this diet as simple as possible to give your intestines a rest.

Can you take this as a supplemental food between meals to gain weight? I have U/C and SIBO and have lost much of my body weight. I was 117 pounds and am now 90 pounds and 5'5" tall.
Sorry to hear about the intestinal problems. Physicians Elemental diet was formulated for the space program. It consists of the basics of what the body needs in a simple form where nothing really needs to be broken down to be used. I say that to say that a person can certainly use this as a supplement for a usual diet with a low risk of problems. Many SIBO patients use this formula exclusively for a time to help calm down the infection and provide basic nutrition. Seems that you could use this as a calorie booster with or apart from meals, whichever works best for you. Let us know how it goes.

Wanting to use this for SIBO. Is this safe to use only the formula for food for 21 days? Thanks
This formula was created for SIBO. This would be your only food source for that time in most cases.
