This week marked my 3 month Bandiversary! Yay!
I got an email from my nutritionist saying I should be able to eat regular food, taking a multivitamin, and only requiring one protein supplement a day. Regular food is no problem but I do have some questions.
1. I did not realize I should have been continuing the protein supplements. In my mind that means protein drinks/shakes and I have not found one that I can handle the flavor or the aftertaste. I mean--it makes me ill and then I will have several days of tummy troubles and/or bathroom troubles. Is there a chewable protein pill? I have gotten protein bars and they are alright but they are high in calories and carbs. Any suggestion? What are y'all doing with protein supplements?
2. Multivitamins? I take a centrum chewable everyday but read an article about nutrition and hair loss. Here's the link. http://www.obesityaction.org/magazine/ywm22/wlsandhairloss.php
It says we need to have iron, zinc, vitamin A, B6 and various other supplements to stop hair loss. It is a very good article and it says that hair loss is normal for 6 to 12 months because of having major surgery and rapid weight loss but if it continues after a year there's a problem. I have been worried about the excessive amount of hair in my brush and this article set my mind at ease.
Anyway, back on subject--what vitamin supplements do you take?
I am serious here and need y'all's imput!
Thanks in advance.
