chewable Bariatric Advantage Multivitamin and calcium citrate chews so far. I read others lists and worry I may have to add more though.

Thanks...I took alot of Vitamins pre op. I think I am going to add some back in.

Weren’t you told you would need to take Multi Vitamins from after your surgery? Depending upon how well your body absorbs Vitamins & minerals from your food once you’re in maintenance, you may need to take them for ever.

I stopped taking them about 9 months after surgery & 3 months into maintenance with my doctors approval. My 3 monthly blood tests continuously show I have very good levels so I have no need to reintroduce any supplements.

If your levels are good, it’s a waste of time (& money) taking them. Plus a lot of vitamins have negative side effects if you have excess levels in your body.

@Tim C At some point after surgery, I returned to "normal" Vitamins. I'd estimate it was between 6 months to 1 year. I took Multivitamins and supplements for a long time before surgery.

At almost 3 years out, I take a lot of 'supplements' for various things, but my basic vitamin/mineral regime consists of:

  1. Women's One-A-Day, 1 caplet, with my evening meal
  2. Citracal, 2 caplets, with my morning meal
  3. Hair-Skin-Nails, 1 caplet, twice a day (with morning and evening meal)
  4. Magnesium, 1 caplet, with my evening meal

PS: I would probably be taking this regime regardless of whether I had gastric sleeve surgery.

I take BariatricPal multi one per day with 18 mg Iron. They’re in capsule form and not too big, so easy to swallow.

So do you like those? They are a heck of a deal.

Have you lost 29 lbs since your surgery?

Yes, I do like them. And yup, the deal sold me on them!

I’ve lost 26 since surgery. 228 was my pre-op medical visit weight (and not even my HW). I’m a slow loser but this is still the fastest I’ve lost after years of diets. I’ll take it. 🙂

You may want to check out ProCare, Celebrate, opurity, and Bariatric Advantage. Several of them offer free or low cost samples.

I am taking Bariatric Advantage chewables and not crazy about them

That is awesome. I am losing at about the same clip which is a little slower than expected but I have not started walking, lifting yet. I expect that will jump start everything.

Flintstones makes a Bariatric multi?

Apparently. Two a day, offers all of the Vitamins and nutrients I need and was the specific Multivitamin suggested by my surgeon. Additionally, Calcium (Vivactiv) and acid reflux reducer.
