Default Ever Forget Whether You Took a Vitamin or Not?

I sure have. I'd look at my Vit C bottle and just stare at it for 30 seconds...did I take that this morning or not???
So I came up with this system. I line all the bottles up and once I take that one, I'll push it back on the shelf. If it's a bottle I take twice a day, I'll keep it on the front row. Then later, while looking at the row of supplements, if it's pushed back, I know I've taken it for the day. If it's on the front row, I still need to take it.
Anyone else do this?



I'm taking 14 different supplements now and was feeling guilty, until I saw Suzanne Summers on the Oz show and she said she takes 40 a day. And Jack Lalanne took 40 to 50 a day. Heh, almost feel like a slacker now.

Yes, I have, but generally I take all of them together, except for the CoQ10 and Lutein (and sometimes D3)softgel that I take separately.

OCD much?

I put mine in lines. One line for my first meal (about 11am). One line for the ones I need to take twice a day. One line for my last meal (about 5:30). So, there.

I take about 15.

Well, glad I'm not the only one with this kind of dilemma!
I take so many supplements, then just tell myself I would rather take supplements as medicine.
I have tried different systems including using a pill planner, I seem to come back to lining the one's I currently use on the front of my shelf. Those I need middle of the day I put in my pocket or drop in my lunch bag...

Yeah. Taking them at the same rough times in a day can help. Now I'm just waiting for the future when the supplement bottles tell you how long since you opened it, lol.

Yes, but it doesn't matter that much as I see it. Some people skip a day with all their supps...I usually don't but it's probably not a bad idea...gives the body a rest, maybe.
