Should I take a multivitamin and/or any other supplements?

Generally speaking, you shouldn't need to take vitamin supplements while on the Program. The Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® and Optimal Weight 4 & 2 & 1 Plan® provides you with 24+ vitamins and minerals.

If you have been prescribed special supplements by your healthcare provider or have a specific concern, please contact your healthcare provider so that they may adjust recommendation, as they deem appropriate.

If you and your healthcare provider choose to incorporate additional vitamin/mineral supplements, please be aware that the liquids, chewable, or powdered formulas often have added calories and carbohydrates which could hinder your ability to achieve the fat-burning state.
