Advice needed on breakfast and vitamin's

Saturday, March 26, 2011

I posted this on the message boards but thought I would throw it up here also...

I watch Dr. Oz, I watch The Doctor's, I read Woman's Health, Fitness & Shape, I spend alot of time reading every SparkPeople article, message board post and comment. I think I have put together a good breakfast and am taking the "right suppliments" but would love some advice as to what I can do better and what I might be missing. Quick info on me... I am 36 years old, 5'5", starting weight was 300 pounds I am now 175.4 but want to weigh 130 but do it the healthy keep off the weight kind of way. Now on to breakfast and vitamins...


one pack of instant low sugar apples and cinnamon oatmeal
1 teaspoon of cinnamon added
20g of dried cranberries added to oatmeal

one cup of Lipton Green Tea
one teaspoon of lemon added for liver cleansing


1 tablet 600mg CALCIUM PLUS D - Osteoporosis runs in my family
1 Centrum Multivitamin
1 softgel 1400 mg FISH OIL Spring Valley (no mercury or lead)
2 caplets 500 mg C (taken 1 in morn and 1 at night)
2 caplets Metformin ER500MG (I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and have to take this)

I have heard and read many articles about cinnamon & lemon. I also just read a really good article in Marches First Magazine about the use of fish oil and Vitamin C in helping to lose the "belly" fat.

Well any input advice or tweeks would be appreciated.

    Hey girl - I saw your post on the done girl site and your breakfast sounds a lot like mine, yum! As for the vitamins I take some from Melaleuca which have an oligofructose compound that make it easier for our bodies to absorb the vitamins & minerals (the minerals especially will cause free radicals in our bodies that cancel out the antioxidants in vitamin c etc). The oligofructose actually mimics the way that vitamins & minerals bind w/ fruits & veggies (which we all know is the way we're supposed to get those). Send me a sparkmail if you want to know more. Keep rocking it! You are an inspiration!
