Some vitains contain sugar, sugar alchohols and even artificial sweeteners, yeast, and other additives that may conatin carbs. Read labels!

Find vitamins that dont have any preseratives, no artificial coloring, no lactose, no gluten, no sugar, etc. Try Vitaminshoppe.com or drugstore.com to help you out.

yes. a calorie is a calorie whether it comes from a carrot or a vitamin or vodka. there isn't any sort of magic procedure that food goes through because it is a supplement, it gets digested where the calories are processed for use and then the nutrients get take out to be used elsewhere.

Do you ad your vitamin and supplement calories to your log? For example, I was right at my calorie limit for today when I realized my omegas have 70 calories and my calcium/magnesium as 40. Do you count these?
