This time of year, the focus tends to be on making sure the holidays are not too detrimental to weight loss plans. That is certainly an important goal, but it is just as important not to lose sight of nutrition. Getting the right vitamins and minerals is crucial for staying healthy and losing weight as fast as you can, but it can be tricky business.BariatricPal Vitamin Packs are designed to help you stay nourished easily.
Why Vitamin and Mineral Supplements?
Why do you need to take vitamin and mineral supplements if you are eating healthily? Can you not just get your nutrients from foods? Some people can, in theory, but there are three barriers to getting enough vitamins and minerals from food.
- Some are harder to get than others. For example, many people are deficient in iron and low in vitamin D.
- You may be eating less food since you are losing weight, which means you are getting fewer nutrients from your food.
- You may have malabsorption trouble due to bariatric surgical procedure such as gastric sleeve or mini or roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
BariatricPal Vitamin Packs deliver the vitamins and minerals that can make up for possible shortfalls in your diet or due to absorption troubles.

What about Calcium?
