Dieting? Don't forget your vitamins!

My month long weight loss challenge is almost done and we're scheduled for our final weigh in next week. Now on my fourth week, I have already lost 5 pounds thank goodness! I regularly took my C-lium Fibre, did the exercises (when I can, haha!), and cut my calorie intake. There's one thing I forgot to do though, and it's to take multivitamins. I've been sick these past few days which really surprised me because I seldom go down with the flu.

When dieting, it should also be important for the body to have its regular supply of vitamins. Smaller meals and more physical activity will have your body asking for help from these supplements. It is recommended to at least take these vitamins:

Vitamin A
B Vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B12, pantothenic acid, niacin, biotin, and folic acid)
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
Vitamin E

My health is more important than all the trophies in the world combined. Now, I know better to never forget my vitamins.

I agree. Dieting should not be a reason to skip taking vitamins In fact, all the more we should take vitamins to stay healthy and keep our immune system up.

Since the body is still adjusting to its new eating regimen, it is necessary to take vitamins to enhance the immune system. The last thing you want to do is to compromise your health while losing weight.
