LLVLC On YouTube (Episode 10): Specific Supplements To Support Your Healthy Lifestyle

Regardless of your choice of diet, you need to be taking supplements

One of the most common questions I receive from people inquiring about my low-carb lifestyle is regarding vitamin supplements. They want to know specifically what I take and why I take them. I've briefly blogged about this before, but this was such an interesting topic that I decided to dedicate Episode 10 of "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb On YouTube" to go over the ones that Christine and I currently take.

Some people erroneously think that they can get all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients they need by simply eating the right kinds of foods in their diet. Unfortunately, that is next to impossible to do which necessitates the need for supplementation. There are arguments both for and against taking vitamins, but I personally feel better and healthier over these past four years since I added DAILY supplementation to my lifestyle. Nobody will ever convince me otherwise.

See EXACTLY what I am taking in our latest YouTube video:

Jimmy - I bought the latest Readers Digest which has a leading article about vitamins that are bad for you (or will kill you, or something like that). Anyhow, it is a very interesting read.

But here's the funny part. They apparently have a picture of you raiding the fridge on the back cover of the magazine - in a Norman Rockwell-esque illustration.

At least it looks like you to me. Pretty funny! I am sure that if we put pix side-by-side it would look nothing like you, but going from the memory in my old worn-out brain - it sure looked like you to me. Go out to the local grocery and pick up a RD and check it out!!

One thing about Womens' multivitamins! After re-starting Atkins, I began to have some (dare I say it?) constipation issues. I was taking fiber in the form of Metamucil to combat it, but was still having this digestional distress. I needed to get a new supplement (ran out of my old multi vitamin), and I was reading the bottle. It had a LOT of iron in it for a women's multi...and I was thinking that as an Atkins girl, I'm probably getting PLENTY of iron without my multi's help.

I asked a pharmacist when I was buying a multi if excess iron could cause a problem. She said the only problem it could potentially cause is *drumroll* constipation! So, in order to find a multi that didn't have iron, my options were to buy a womens' 50+ vitamin (I'm 22), or buy a men's multi. I opted for the men's multi this time around...just wondering what you thought of that?

Thanks for the awesome podcasts/blogs/video!

Nope, not dreaming. But take a look for yourself. See the link below.

You gotta admit there is at least a little resemblance...

What do ya think?

Dan, that is just plain eerie! WOW! Although my refrigerator doesn't have any milk, juice, or leftover spaghetti in it! LOL! That's pretty funny, though.
