Calcium Chews Calories



Recommended Posts

I was looking at buying some calcium chews to try out flavors and read calories. It takes 6 chews per day on most to meet the daily requirements for vsg patients. That mean 90 calories daily, which means 2700 calories a month! That is almost 1 pound a month!! Guess I will just crush calcium citrate into my Protein Shakes Many people buying different chewy Vitamins, I wonder if they realize this.

I do know some are sugar free (malitol) and one chew is 15 cals, so closer to 1400 cals a month, but over a year that's almost 6 lbs. Are they worth that?

Some ppl find them to be the one little treat they can legally have lol..NUT said this to me...

So far, the Kirkland ones I tried tasted nasty!!

So I'm considering another pill...if they aren't horse sized... I take a lot of pills as it is and it's much hRder with the sipping Water thing...

That's a lot of calories but I want to be fit abd healthy without obsessing about every fat, calorie and whatever is going in and out bc that's why ppl with eating disorders do like anorexia....

It's good info to consider though but just saying, to me, I want weight loss, healthy eating, exercise without counting every drop. Of course, in the beginning, logging is important to make sure you're accountable etc but that's my limit!!

If it makes the difference between taking your supplements regularly and not taking them regularly because you have to choke them down every time you have to take them, the answer is: Holy Crap, yes!

I just factor them into my daily calorie range. Like an above poster said, it's a daily t treat I allow myself. Although I usually just take one. For the rest of my doses, I mix Upcal D into my morning yogurt (9 calories) and drop or crush a couple of tablets into my Protein shake (0 calories)

Yeap, wanted those too. I am pre-sleeve and just making sure I have everything ready. I know how hard it is to take weight off (and keep off), so I know that everyone loves these and might try for a month or two post op. After that I didn't want so many calories. I know it's not a lot but taking these for 5 years (since we have to pretty much take Vitamins for life) would add up to 30 lbs. I love to pre-plan, figure worst case down the line will add crushed to Protein drinks. That is why I am so concerned about gaining down the line, it happens to many after a few years.

THANKS to all for sharing.

@@summerset ....thanks for making me laugh.... :)

@@Butterflywarrior I'm a total numbers person, if I don't track those 15 calories everyday that's how got to 332 once. I will have to track food for life. I managed to go from 332 back to 248 and stopped tracking for two months starting in July. Well, here I am back at 265-268. A calorie here and there for me is disastrous. I work 7 days a week, don't eat fast food or junk, work out, but hit that age where numbers count. That is why I am so concerned about starting out on these. Thanks for sharing.

don't get me wrong, I believe in logging food, fat, Protein, etc...I just don't like the idea if projecting I will gain this much weight if I eat this thing one year from now unless I'm being tempted by cake. Lol

People can fall into disordered eating to actual pathology from obsession over every calorie and what it means! I'm not saying your extreme or wrong it just makes me nervous to think like that... I want to enjoy life still but not gain all my list weight back either... happy medium... that's my desire

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
