So reading the AAFP recommendations, and listening to the 3 MDs on the forum. It sounds like if I toss my old bottle of multivitamins, and don't bother to replace it I'm not going to shorten my life span .

In the irony department. Hours after posting and tossing my multivitamins.

My fitness instructor just rolled out a diet program. Being 40 lbs overweight, I really need a such a program, especially the weekly weigh ins, body fat measurements and controlled food consumption. The program uses protein shakes as a replacement for two meals. It included a few other pills, and not surprisingly yup a multivitamins. So after not taking one for years, I am going to be talking one for the next two months.

Clifp, I am thinking that could be CYA just in case the protein shakes are cutting back on the vitamins you might normally consume. Now that I think about it, they might! So maybe it's a good idea, as well as CYA, while you are on this program.

BTW, congratulations on taking this step and I hope it works out for you! I am continually struggling with my weight, and have lost 27 pounds since the beginning of March with Weight Watchers. I am happy about that, but have a lot more to lose.

So true and lower life expectancy than all other developed nations. The irony is that they don't really consume vitamins.
