i am on a prenatal Gummy right now. all women of childbearing age really should be on a prenatal. it promotes general and reproductive health. plus, if for some crazy reason, you get pregnant, you know the foundation is set nutritionally. as long as there is sex to be had, there is ALWAYS a chance ;) lol

for post op i'm going with Celebrate Vitamins. they have formulated specifically for each type of surgery. they know exactly what type and quantity of Vitamins you need for absorption.

I had a really really hard time taking Vitamins for the first few months, but once I could start swallowing them, this is my daily cocktail (I worked with a naturopathic doctor to come up with this:)

I take the Calcium at night; the rest in the morning.

Hope that helps....BTW, I hated the chewables...yuck.

Currently, I'm taking the Bariatric Advantage chewable Multivitamin. Once they're gone, I'm going to move to their capsule form. I'm also taking extra Biotin and slow release Iron supplements.< /p>

I get it from my naturopath. I can give you her info; she ships if you're interested. She's a firm believer that not all supplements are good and she only orders high quality stuff. The name of it is Nordic Naturals ProEPA xtra It's says it's Ultra Concentrated Superior Triglyceride Form Pharmaceuticla Grade Molecularly Distilled Omega-3 Fish Oil

Hope that helps!

Coromega Omega3 Squeeze Packets - 2 daily

Vitamin D (target brand) - 5000UI a day (I have a Vitamin D deficiency)

Bariatric Advantage cinnamon chewable Calcium - 1500mg a day (I hate these and always forget to take but have so many due to an ordering mistake on my part. I don't recommend them)

Nature's Bounty Biotin 5000 mcg daily

      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
