I find that if I'm not getting something in my diet, I eat more to compensate. Which does, in fact, affect weight loss....
Did your doctor give you any advice on when to take the supplements--and with what? I don't know about B12, but iron can be tricky. If you take it with calcium, it's not absorbed as well. But taking iron with vitamin C helps absorption.
My suggestion is to find the right balance first--whether it's food combinations, supplements, or cooking tomatoes and peppers in cast iron skillets--and THEN focus on the weight. Weight has long-term health consequences--but anemia affects you NOW.
