I'm just over the 3 month mark and I'm still having trouble taking my Vitamins I find they either taste to sweet or gross and the same with my Protein Drinks any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Try a variety of kinds, start with trail sizes, and brands that are returnable. Mix it up with gummies, chewables, tablets and Patches. In the end treat them like meds. Utterly necessary and a part of adulting.

Can't you just put them in your mouth and swallow with some Water without tasting them?

Okay I’m 8 Months out I like the Premier Protein seems to have the best flavor.My Dr doesn’t allow anything Gummy until 6 Months out because of sticking and digestion.I use the flint stones chewables after I eat something.The bigger swallow ones I can’t digest ,early on I did use the Patches but they get a tad expensive good luck

And I went back to my prenatals, small, only need one a day, a little Water in the mouth, toss it in and down she floats! Nice, easy and it's over until tomorrow! Loathed Flintstones taste, hated grinding pills, thought Bari-Melts weren't all that melty, felt like flavored sand in my 👄, a complication I did not need. Only concession I still make is dissolving my big White Carafate into a slurry in a medicine cup and drinking that.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
