I would like to start dieting. I would like to start taking a multivitamin. I already take niacin & vitamin C!?!

Question: I would like to start dieting. I would like to start taking a multivitamin. I already take niacin & vitamin C!.?
I am not fond of eating meat so i try to eat cereal with iron in it!I prefer not to eat red meat cause there is a lot of cholesterol in them. If i eat cereal will that be enough iron for me.?I may also switch to wheat bread to. I may not eat noodles either cause i know they can be very fattening plus they burn so quick & a person is hungry within a few hours. When i diet i am very fussy with what i eat. I wont eat no butter, oil or much fats at all.

Would this be a healthy diet plan.?I am a 30 year old female. I plan to start to walk more to. Thanks every one. I will eat 3 meals a day to cause i know balance is the key!Health Question & Answer

There is a lot of hype about vitamins from people who make a living selling them. Be cautious about extravagant claims of needing "megavitamin' doses, or the benefits of the same.

Take a basic multivitamin with minerals (it will include iron) and that should meet your needs, regardless of the type of diet you are on.

The only time you would need supplemental vitamins in addition to the basic one-a-day with minerals vitamin is if you had an unusual disease requiring additional supplementation.

What you actually choose to eat is your own choice. Recent evidence shows that the most effective diet is the one you stick with.Health Question & Answer

I can't comment on your diet plan with any authority, but i can comment on your supplements.
You can stop taking the niacin and Vitamin C. All you need to take is a good multivitamin w/ iron & minerals supplement. It doesn't have to be a brand name one either as long as it is balanced (if it says something like comparable to Centrum or One a Day it's ok).
I will say that the biggest meal should be breakfast and the smallest, supper.Health Question & Answer

You should try to do 5-6 small meals a day. Up your water intake, and just watch what you put in your mouth. Don't consider it dieting. Technically you are on a diet right now, may not be a healthy one, but a diet. also, you're the Dr. so I am a little confused. A doctor of what.? ;)Health Question & Answer

well for starters you shouldn't be taking vitamin B3 (niacin) individually unless specifically told to do so by a naturopath or nutritionally oriented physician ...... excess amounts of niacin in your blood stream ~ more than 35mg daily on a regular basis ~ can raise the levels of uric acid and produce an attack of gout ...... bone pain ..... arthritis ....... same with vitamin C supplementation..... taking more than 2,000mg daily on a regular basis of vitamin C supplementation will also raise uric acid levels thus contributing to gout attacks.......supplement with a good quality B complex including all the B's ie ~ B1, B2, B3, b5, B6, B12, folic acid, choline, inositol, biotin, PABA etc.etc..... to supplement with any one of them individually will only serve to throw the precious balance of the rest of the group out and you'll therefore suffer other deficiency symptoms ...... they work best synergistically (together).

eat more beans and lentils, quinoa (pronounced keen wah), brown rice, organic nuts and seeds like almonds, brazil nuts and sunflower seeds if you want to ditch the meat ....... all rich in protein, iron and the nuts and seeds are rich in calcium too ...... eat brown rice too also rich in iron and a good cereal option without all the added processed sugar and chemicals that most packaged cereal and breads contain....... brown rice will sustain you and keep your blood sugar levels steady.

eat 2 or 3 bowls full of green vegies daily too .... broccolli, kale, chard, celery, buk choy ........ rich in calcium and magnesium vitamin C potassium and fibre and B vitamins and very easy for your body to assimilate ........ far easier than milk and dairy products without all the added processed man made nutritionally void sugar .... good for brain frizz, insomnia, constipation ..... good for just plain old lookin and feelin good.

drizzle cold pressed (no trans fats) extra virgin olive oil over your rice and beans and vegies for extra flavor ....... very good for your heart and skin and vascular health.......... i don't have an ounce to spare but i eat a lot of brown rice, green vegies and regularly use the cold pressed olive oil ........ wonderfull way to regulate your system and have glowing hair skin and nails too....... all foods rich in the B complex of vitamins.

if you want something sweet have some low sugar fruits such as watermelon, strawberries, pears ......... use organic raw honey (cold pressed) to sweeten your tea or hot drinks for a sweet taste...... raw honey is rich in B vitamins and is a very powerfull natural antibiotic...... ;0)

drink more water too ....... you'd be amazed at how being just a little dehydrated can affect your mood and energy levels and even impact on any efforts to lose weight.

peace baby
