Having a band, I’m so afraid to take the big pills that vitamins usually come in so I have gotten used to most of my vitamins and supplements being chewable.
I was taking the whole foods children’s chewable vitamins and taking double the amount, but I wanted to see if I could find something better so I asked the wls community what they take for vitamins.
I got a variety of responses and decided to try to find Centrum Chewables. I had no idea Centrum even had adult chewables. When I originally looked at CVS, I only found kids chewables so they must not have had them in stock there.
I went to Target last night and found them there.
Now I’ll only have to take my multivitamin once a day, which will be nice. I bought two bottles, one to keep at my desk at work and the other at home.
I do much better with morning vitamins if I keep them at work as I rarely eat before I leave the house.
Centrum Chewables has:
|3500 IU||Vitamin A||70%|
|400 IU||Vitamin D||100%|
|30 IU||Vitamin E||100%|
|10 mcg||Vitamin K||13%|
I’m trying to be really good about my vitamins and my supplements as it’s one of the biggest things that WLS patients are not compliant on.
I have to admit that I have been feeling great as well. I have no idea if it’s the vitamins, the weight loss, the healthy eating or all of the above, but normally by now I have had at least one sinus infection (especially since having a child in daycare) and I have felt extremely healthy.
