You would be doing a severe calorie restriction diet instead, which might still have benefits and obvious weight/water loss - but not necessarily the same. It would only seem logical that the healing/repairing benefits of shutting down the digestive tract would be minimized by consuming something that needed to be processed.
That being said, it looks like you already have a fair amount of setup done and are on your way at this point so maybe my post is just something to consider for your next time around. If you were to consume the cup(s) of bone broth during an intermittent fast window (say only consuming them from 10am-2pm) you might be able to enter into a similar state as a full fast once your body has finished digestion, elimination, and is then in a fasting state before hitting the next 10am-2pm window.
I don't have any scientific research to back up my statements, I'm just trying to give you the best advice I can based on what I have read and experimented with thus far.
