    Late last year i bought 180 Healthspan 50+ Multivitamins and have been taking one a day. Think they were about £10 and should last me 6 months.

    Thanks All

    Have some oil capsules in cupboard shall start them, never used them before because worried about fat , now I don't need to bother I will also look around and get the vitamins. I am doing ok so far but was a bit hungry last night late on,just could not settle, maybe a case of old habits die hard. but went to the music and movement over 50s this morning and realy knocked myself out , I thought it was finished and was making for the door and then the instructor said right lets move it up a bit, you should have seen my face.
    beetroot red and contorted. It is all for the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks again for all replies, I think I am going to do this.

    Hi fattogo, I'm planning on taking a multi vit too. I will probably take a cheap tesco/asda type one for all the family, i'm assumming they are all the same and have to meet regulations etc as they can be expensive!

    This is my proper full day on atkins, as i've been on CD for a few weeks (yeuck!!) and loving it so far! :)

    I have just realised (durr) that my berocca (or cheap substitute for it) has citric acid in. Do you think this stalls weight loss? I have read a couple of threads that say so.
    Do all multivits with vit c in have citric acid in?

    Vicky - citric acid can affect weight loss but I'm not sure how much you need to keep for it to happen. I need to look at my multi vits now too.

    Yes, we have had people on here who stalled until they cut out the citric acid.

    Cheese was always my downfall, even today I can easily gain weight if I eat a lot of Cheese.

    Will cut out the Atkins bars & coleslaw too... back to basics as I was before to see what affect the squash vs water has... can't be doing it & adding new things... I'll get all confuddled!
