Hello, it's been a number of years sadly. Yup, I am one of those who kept it all off (lost 185lbs) and now through COVID..yes it's a bad excuse..have gained back 30 lbs.

Help. I have moved twice, have no idea where any of my binders from Humber River are and could use some help with the diet yes I know I should KNOW this...as well as the vitamin protocol. I have a new GP who doesn't understand or seem to know much about an RNY and what I need as well as what needs to get looked at in my blood work.

I am feeling absolutely terrible...I could use some help if anyone out there wouldn't mind?

Thanks in advance, Annette

I take:

Calcium w. D3 - 2 tabs, twice a day, away from caffeine

B12 - sublingual 1 tab every other day

Iron supplement

Zinc Citrate

Magnesium Citrate - as needed - I get bad leg cramps at night

Multi Vitamin - 1 tab every morning

Can you reach out to Humber River to find out what labs your doctor should be ordering - the list is pretty extensive. They should be done annually.

Over 100 lbs lost! and 13 lbs below goal weight!

Great choice. I'm using some vitamins, but I prefer to get them from food. When I was young, I ate a lot of fi****'s an A, D, E vitamins, But now it's so hard to find a good one. Our oceans and rivers are hurt because of climate change and oil spills. I studied at the ecology faculty and had read many books and additional info on this theme. And I hope people will understand the necessity of protecting our hydrosphere.

Calcium Citrate 500mg x 3 per day

MVI x 2 per day

B12 every 2 days ( depends on your level)

iron ( depends on level)

all others depend on your levels

ask your GP to check your levels - iron, folate, ferritin, calcium, magnesium, vit A etc...
