UPDATE on Bariatric Eating.com issues
ok, I posted about issues I had with Susans website Bariatric Eating.com. I found an email address and emailed to it got a reply with an apology for my issues and that their new website ordering system just went live and how to fix my issues on the auto reorder. I went to the site logged in and all my history was there. A place for me to cancel the auto-order. I made the changes it saved them and I got a confirmation email to my account. So hopefully she has new people running her business. I made sure my CC info was not saved as a standing for of payment though. I will give them a chance to prove themselves BUT I will be very watchful. I will update again after my next order. I order 2 months at a time since I have to double up on most my vitamins it is costly :)
They aren't even good vitamins. They are made with some forms of vitamins that we can't even absorb. Here's an article that explains it very well: http://wlsvitagarten.com/2010/12/12/journey-as-told-by-susan -maria-and-dissected-by-andrea/
Plus I wouldn't trust her to actually send you what you pay for, since she has ripped off so many customers. But I also wouldn't bother paying for such crappy vitamins even if I did trust her to actually send me what I paid for.

She has used that same excuse and promises numerous times. Good luck.

JEANNIE--While I certainly HOPE everythign works out for..and I admire your tenacity and sweet spirit...I'm not sure I could be as nice as you...Oh Crap..Who do I think I'm fooling??? I'd NEVER be as nice as you...lol
I met Susan Maria, at an OH conference, in 2004, and totally loved her. I bought her book..yadda..yadda...yadda...over the years she kinda got carried away, on her site...bashed peeps who did not agree with everything she preached...bashed OH, even though she advertised here...just all out weird behavior..and the bad order stuff started..and this was YEARS AGO..this is not a NEW problem...I stopped ordering at least 4-5 years ago...
As far as vitamins, please do "taked advice" from the peeps here-especially the vets. OF COURSE your physician anf nut's instructions are important-and is your own good sense-but, having the experience, and support of peeps who "walk the walk", is just PRICELESS, IMHO
Thank you updating about BE..no doubt you are helping others

We Can Do Hard Things
I have gotten lots of private messages and emails about her true self..so I will take my business elsewhere a shame that someone who could be so amazing for WLS would turn the way she did.
thanks for the help everyone
