Another vitamin question...



Recommended Posts

I use the Centrium Silver chewable - it doesn't have a lot of Iron in it, so I also take a Celebrate iron supplement a couple of times a week.

I got the bariatric chewable from Twin Lab from Vitamin Shoppe. 60 of em for $12. Not a bad deal. And they taste better than the Flinstones chewables (which my dr doesn't recommend)

My surgeon says gummys and swallowables are ok 2 weeks post-surgery. I have been chewing the Centrum flavor bursts 4 chewables 2 times per day and they are soooo sweet I can't stand it! I tried GNC chewable mutli-vitamins for women again so disgusting tasting I can't get them down.... I would be interested to know what you end up with, not having good luck with products myslef!

I'm not tolerating the children's chewable multi-Vitamin with Iron supplements. Can anyone recommend a good tasting chewable? Are Gummy Vitamins okay?

I use these they have chewable and a powder you can put into your Water and specifically for wls patients!

My surgeon Dr. Copper told me no Gummy, just chewable tablets. He told me your body does not absorb all that Vitamins in a gummy texture.

I use the bariatric advantage' date=' i crush them up and mix it with 1/4c of Greek yogurt, this way my yogurt taste tropical, i get Protein and i can manage them better! Becuz they are DISGUSTING! It takes me 30 min to eat it but it works![/quote']

Maybe it's the flavor of the Bariatric Advantage chewables that you ordered. I like the Lemon Lime and just finished a 90 count bottle. Just received the orange chewable today. Tastes like Tang.

My favorite thing from BA is the Calcium chews. I love the caramel flavor - my nightly "candy" treat.

Donamay: suggest you get a chewable multi without Iron. Iron can cause constipation. I experimented with lots of iron tablets and finally found Ferasol, a plant-based iron that is non- constipating. Avail at Walgreens.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
