Chewable Vitamins that dont taste horrible?



Recommended Posts

  1. Centrum chewables...about $9 for a 3-month supply
  2. Flintstones complete (not the gummies)...take 2 per day

The best thing is that these can be found over the counter at any Walmart, Target, Walgreens, or supermarket in most cities.

I have some of the Bariatric Fusion mixed berry flavored vitamins... they're not terrible. They kind of remind me of the Flinstone's Vitamins. I also have some of the BariMelts calcium/magnesium chewable and they taste ok to me too. Like the orange Flinstone's (I always liked Flinstone's vitamins... maybe I'm weird lol)

The "FLINTSTONE Vitamin taste horrible!! When I went to my New Bariatric Center, which I had been going to my Surgeon's office, anyhow the new Dr. told me to take 2 flintstone Vitamins plus Iron. MAN O MIGHTY those are yucky to say the least. I have used Celebrate mostly every since I had my RNY. I buy the capsules and I was told by my DR if they are to big to swallow you can open them and sprinkle it on whatever you want. But I have not had any problems with swallowing them. I figure that I went thru major surgery and I need the Bariatric vitamins I have seen past WLS peeps (like 30 years ago) who are having bad things going on because they didn't use the vitamins that were needed. I don't want to make any mistakes. It might take years before you notice something is wrong. Make sure to get all of your blood work done. It is so important. Have a great day!!

I think the Flintstones Complete taste good. Different strokes for different folks. :)

Anyhow, since I have a sleeve gastrectomy, I don't have the malabsorptive component that would necessitate use of bariatric Multivitamins.

Like you said, Different strokes for different folks!! Because I had the RNY I definitely don't want to take any chances. I don't know which surgery Micky701 is having but I think we covered all bases.

Was taking several different store bought Vitamins as I couldn't find one Vitamin that had it all until I took the Facebook vitamin challenge. Now I take two chewable watermelon Celebrate Vitamins a day and am so glad I do. Check them out, they have different flavors.

Has anyone tried the Celebrate 3-in-1 multi Vitamin powder? I am considering doing the citrus for the first 3 months after surgery? Opinions?

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
