    Hiya..

    Just wondering, do any of you take multi vitamins or any other types of suppliments?

    Do they cause any sort of problems with weight loss etc?

    I took a multi vit, omega 3 oil and another one something to do with wheat deficiency? I take the omega 3 now, that's all.

    i take a b complex, because i have always taken it, not because of being on atkins.

    i am on a NSAID, which causes a bit of water retention, so sometimes i take a herbal water tablet when it gets bad.

    Low carb, now calorie counting
    I take a daily multi-vitamin and mineral. Towards the end of my second week, I was getting really dizzy. I had a read around and apparently a lack of potassium and magnesium was the cause. Bought them after that and felt right as rain. Well aside from adapting to a different diet etc!

    The Atkins book recommends a good multivitamin/mineral (for induction only? can't remember), so I take the Tesco A-Z. No problems so far.

    I'm just on a multi-vitamin too, Holland & Barratt's radiance ones, they're pretty good. I've noticed my skin is a bit rubbish lately, so I might give evening primrose oil a whirl.
