Day 5 HcG: Vitamins Aren’t Always Good For You


June 19, 2012 by UtahMan&Wife

Say what?! OK. Yes, of course vitamins are good for you! But…


. . . NOT on an empty stomach! Wife learned the hard way today. It’s a habit to take them in the morning with breakfast. Before she knew it, she’d grabbed and downed them with a big swig of lemon water. The consequence was rather dismal.

Wife: Big Note to self Drinking an herbal tea for breakfast does not constitute enough in the stomach for digesting vitamin & calcium pills. You will likely end up having to pull over to puke in a random parking lot driving to work (not cool), then feeling nauseated the rest of the morning and having a really hard time drinking your necessary water intake.

As it turns out, there is a link between getting sick from multi-vitamins that we should be cautious about.

So, here’s some great suggestions from our [totally awesome] friends at [the very best] Facebook “Little Choices Matter” HcG Diet Support Group:

1. Read / Watch: What Supplements Should You Be Taking?

2. Liquid Vitamins are easier on the tummy. [many recommended All One Nutritech]

3. Make a Strawberry Spinach Smoothie for breakfast and then take vitamins.

    I made the mistake of taking my vitamins before eating anything at all once too, soon after I felt horrible and couldn’t understand why until I realized I hadn’t eaten anything. Got an apple in me real quick so that helped a ton but I feel Wife’s pain!
