You're welcome :)

I forgot to mention that childrens vitamins sometimes contain sugar or sugar alcohols to make them more tasty, like the flinstones ones (yum!). But I am assuming none of us take those :P

I checked with a Dr. friend and he said no, vitamins do not contain any calories. The only way there would be calories is if you drank it with a beverage that had calories (which is quite obvious)...which reminds me, I need to get more vitamins! lol :P

You're better to be getting your nutrients through your diet then taking suppliments. If you eat plenty of fruit and veg then you shouldn't need any suppliments.

What's the difference between ignorance and apathy?

don't know, don't care.

Thanks Twlite and everyone.

I'd keep checking because, when I was taking a lot of different vitamins, I sure swelled up and gained
weight. I think I'll check the world wide web.

I just checked the pack of iron pills and it's got no nutrition info on it, which leads me to believe that it doesn't have any calories. It's just a guess though.

I would think the number of calories would be so low that it wouldn't warrant tracking.

Hi Bonny Bev- I looked on a Centrum bottle that I have, And it doesn't say anything about calories on it, so I put it in the nutrition link here on spark people and it came back as 10 calories. (the same link to add foods for the day). It came up with 3 different centrum formulas, so you might want to try it for your brand. Hope that helps

I think it says on the bottle if they do.

Does anyone know if taking vitamins adds calories?
It sure seems like they do.

Thanks! Bonny Bev.

In harmony, Bev.
