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 :)

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
