 The Little Things That Make a Big Difference’ is an article series outlining weight loss and diet interventions that may seem insignificant, but can make a huge difference to the success of your diet plan.

Get your vitamins the best way

One of the most common questions about supplements goes something like this: “Do vitamin pills really work, or do they just make really expensive urine?”.

That’s a difficult question to answer from the research, especially because there are so many products of varying quality levels to choose from. So while some may work really well, others may be useless.

My theory is always this: You should try to get your vitamins from healthy food (wherever possible). A diet that is widely varied and of a good quantity should get you pretty close to perfect vitamin intake. Eat lots of fruits and veggies, and get your fibre in.

BUT, as with all things in life, a backup plan is a really good idea, because you don’t want to run low on something important, as this can make you function poorly, and possibly increase your risk of getting sick.

That’s why I do recommend that my clients take a vitamin pill. Find one that covers the full range of vitamins, and take it daily. Yes, you may just be making your urine more pricey, but what if you need one of the things in there, and your body gets it from the pill? I’d say that’s worth it. Wouldn’t you?
