I take all my vitamins daily and was thinking about adding magnesium. What kind should I buy and how much and when do I need to take this?

Thanks!

My surgery was Dec 21, 2016.  I was told only cardio (low impact) at first.  So far I've been doing this and just recently started jogging on the treadmill.  Before my surgery I used to do weights and core workouts like Pilates.  I don't see the surgeo

I've got a few question for all of you who use the patch. 

1-Just got mine yesterday for the forst time and the package states it is not waterproof.  Does this mean that if wet your body no longer absorbs or just that it may fall off in the wat

Hello everyone!!  For those of you who use the patch do you get the calcium patch that comes with VitD3 plus the Vit D patch, or is the  vitD in the calcium enough? 

Thanks!!

hello everyone! I had surgery 2 weeks ago and so far everything is great and I've lost 12 pounds.  I'm tracking everything I eat and drink and I know I have to aim for over 60 grams of protein but was wondering what my total calories intake should be.

My surgery was Wednesday morning.  I've been following the eating guide and so fat so good.  The one thing I'm a bit concerned about is that everything I eat comes straight out within minutes of eating it.  Is this normal?


chula82 posted a discussion topic 11 months ago

I did it!!!! This morning I had my surgery and I'm happy to report that I'm doing great so far.  

Right after surgery there was pain and nausea but the nurses took care of that and I feel better every hour that passes.  I don't have nausea and

This is day 3 on optifast and I haven't been able to get all 4 servings of optifast.  Is it okay if I only have the 3 and my veggies, or should I force myself to have all 4? 


chula82 posted a discussion topic 11 months, 2 weeks ago

Hello!!! okay, so I am on day 2 of Optifast and was wondering if it can be heated, make it a hot chocolate instead of a shake?  Has anyone tried this?

Thanks in advance!

My surgery is December 21, I start Optifast on Wednesday and I have a really bad cough and cold.  I've been sick for about 2 weeks and have tried all the over-the-counter meds and it's not going away.  I went to the walk-in clinic a few days ago and wa
