Hi. I am almost 3 years out and am having problems. I initially lost 30 pounds, only to gain 10 back in the last year. I moved from N.Y. to Georgia. Then I got married a little more than a month later. I started school online and got and lost a job. I recently got a job as a Security Guard and it's basically a desk job. I no longer eat bread, rice, or Pasta. I eat potatoes occasionally. I had been using sugar in my coffee but have cut all sugar out of it. I only use Creamer or milk now. I have been unable to get my Vitamins or any Protein Shakes or any Meal Replacements in the last year. I am just starting to get back on my feet and need to get vitamins. What kind can I take without it costing alot? Thanks in advance!

Walmart or Sam's club gummies, Very inexpensive (even less expensive is Dollar tree Restorz gummy vitamins, or generic tablets to test out first)

coffee tip: Try using Protein Shakes instead of Creamer or half and half.

Sugar tip: Completely eliminate all added sugar every where you can by using substitutes or consuming foods with substitutes.

General tips: try tracking foods again, separate eating and drinking by 30 mins, eat salads often (little to no dressing), read labels check calories count, eat only what you prepare for a while, stay active with a support group

You can do it, again 🎈

Do not take gummy vitamins as they don’t have the right level of Vitamins for bariatric patients. Instead, purchase generic versions of Centrum or One A Day vitamins that you can buy at costco (Kirkland brand) or at various drugstores (e.g. Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS) which often have Buy One Get One free specials.

I was told as a bypass patient to never take the gummy vitamins.

Check out Bariatric Fusion. I was just on their site yesterday and they had 2 of their Multivitamins on sale for under $20 for a 30 day supply (120 chewables, 4 a day). There was an orange flavor and a berry. Look under the sale section of their menu. Everything we need except the iron!
