Vitamin suggestion I hate chalk tasting stuff



Recommended Posts

I'm just getting started and my team suggested I should start taking Vitamins now but I'm afraid of buying them and disliking the taste. Its all I could do in the past to chew a tum no matter the flavor as the texture was like chalk. Is that what the chewables are like too? What's your favorite? Or should I try liquid and what options are there. So much out there I feel overwhelmed.

sublingual is the way to go ... i.e. melt under the tongue.

Blackmore's Vitamins come in a style called "Rapi-Melts". They melt in less than ten seconds under your warm wet tongue.

I'm trying the Patches right now, easy to use but expensive as crap, will probably go back to pills.

Celebrate has a capsule Vitamin, which you could open them and sprinkle them in something you are eating. When I first had my RNY I was told to use Centrum chewables. They are fruit flavored and kind of reminded me of a gumball. I had to change Vitamins because they tasted too sweet to me, hubby loved them. Different strokes for different people I guess. My Surgeon was the one that told me to use the capsules sprinkled on something that I was eating.

I love that idea of sprinkling into the food I'm eating I'll see about that thanks so much for the info!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
