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 :)

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.

        I love it! Thanks!
