Recommendations for a gummy multivitamin



Recommended Posts

The chewables are making me sick. Anyone take gummies?

My doctor said gummies are fine. I take the OneADay Women's Vitacraves.

Should just check with yours, since they all seem so different in opinions. I have been able to take them since two days after surgery with no problems.

My doc said no gummies, cause they can't be sure of how much you're absorbing from them

Ditto. The length it takes to absorb a Gummy as opposed to other types is much longer and our tummies simply don't get it all absorbed.

I take flinstone complete. Still not the most tasty but it is better than any of the many bariatric ones I've tried.

I take gummies and have had two PERFECT blood tests in the three months since surgery. I also started taking a Gummy probiotic and have not had "bathroom" or intestinal issues since I started taking them. At my followup last week, I complained about taking the Calcium and they even recommended the gummy calcium - even if it isn't citrate - she said it should be fine.

I have my first follow up Appt on Thursday even though today is my two week mark. I'm going to talk to them about it then, I know how important taking Vitamins is on your body I'm a big advocate for them but I simply cannot take these chewables anymore. I even tried crushing them and mixing them in my drinks. No luck.

Are the one a days good?

Some of the gummie Vitamins are high in calories and carbs when you add up how many you have to take. My Nut and Surgeon does not allow them but I know some do. ;)

Just be sure if you switch to gummies that you get your Iron in somehow. Sorry the chewables didn't work for you.

I take the chewable Iron without any problems, it's the oddest thing.

We have taken Vitafusion multi cites for years, available at costo and on Amazon. I will have my first post-op blood test tomorrow, but historically they have worked and our Vitamin levels have always been good. It helps that they are absolutely delicious :)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
