" No.. you don't need to spend all kinds of money on "bariatric vitamins" and such.. it's a waste of money.. you cab use vitamins from Target or even Wal-mart. "

" There are some questions you need to ask yourself. First, what does your nutritionist or surgeon say? Their reccomendations are not based on any hope of personal gain, so find out why they would reccommend supplements specially formulated for WLS patients. Second, are the store supplements from places like Walmart truly equivalent to them? You have to become an expert label reader. Keep in mind supplements like Flintstones chewables have alot of sugar and may make you sick. You also have to have a very specific form of calcium, otherwise you will waste your money on a very important part of the post-op routine. Third - have you shopped around and compared prices for bariatric supplements? I buy 3 months worth from for 119.00, no tax, free shipping. The last question you have to ask yourself is with the sharp reduction you will sure experience in your food budget, not to mention the harm you will cause yourself if you do not have the proper post-op nutrition, is it really a good idea to scrimp on supplements?
