Which Bariatric vitamins, minerals and other dietary supplements do YOU take ?



Recommended Posts

I gm have tried capsules and chewables an have had no luck. I have been on gummys. I have the Celebrate capsules an have tried an tried to take. Within 10-15 minutes if taking I got light headed an little dizzy, then throw up. It's so bad I actually dry heave due to puking everything up an nothing being left but the icky yellow stuff (I know TMI) but my hole upper body is sore after this process. I have been through twice an I'm scared to try again:(

I have been great on flinstone Gummy but in afraid that I'm not getting what I need, or no if I need to take more than just that.

Hi, I have found that the Vitamins and Protein powders by unjury are very good. :) I order them from their web site.

I take Vita4Life Multi-Plus and I take 4 per day. My surgeon recommended I take only Vita4Life products, and I've been compliant since my surgery 5 years ago. I've had nothing but great results with them. I also take their Calcium supplement and their sublingual B-12. I don't take anything other than those supplements.< /p>

      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.
