So I got the form but it talks about ill or needy? And then it talks about the IRS. I am totally confused.

I'm going to print this and bring it to my pre-op appointment next week. I've already ordered from Bariatric Advantage and found the Wild Cherry Calcium Citrate chewables w/ Vit D are terrible. Unfortunately, I bought a 90 day supply...I'm just waiting until they are gone. The other things I ordered from there aren't so bad. Thanks for the info!

I didn't like these initially either. What I did was cut them into four. So I didn't have to try and chew that big Vitamin. Worked much better... My surgeon stated I could buy all my Vitamins at Walmart but strongly suggested Bariatric Advantage for Calcium. I have also noted a lot of people referring to taking gummy vitamins and according to my surgeon these are a no no...

Nienie!

So with this said we are able to swallow the chewable vitamins? Because I can't stand the flavor and consistency. I take Flinstones chewables. Also the calcium pill are extremely large and it's painful to swallow can we cut those too? :)

The calcium I cut up and chewed and drank Water with. I initially hated them but made them habit. I don't know if any of them are that great. Just an idea.

I forgot about the calcium chews. We tasted all of them at our seminar and they were good. Only downfall is instead of taking Calcium two times a day you would have to take three times a day and trying to spread them out between multi Vitamin might get tough-but would be good calcium to take..

I think you are supposed to take both the chewy and the chewable 3 x a day.....I do not always get all my bits in though.

Our doctor recommends 6x a day for chewy , wow big difference in amounts in food and Vitamins, it's amazing each doctor and nutritionist require different things , I wish it was 3 ,too many pills not enough real food ,I'm 43 days post op and still on liquids :'(

      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.
