I use Aussie Bodies anytime protein shake (chocolate) to add some protein to my diet for my morning tea meal but not every day. I just didn't want to add any more dairy or meat and this was a good option for more protein. The only tablets I take is a dedicated iron tablet every 2-3 days as ordered by my doc due to having a history of low iron stores which was the case on my last check up. I used to take a women's mutli-vitamin every day but I always forget and when I told the doc he didn't think it was a big deal to take one at all given my diet and the results from my check up which were excellent apart from the iron store. Oh and on a side note, prune juice is an excellent source of iron. :D

The only things I take on a regular basis are:

medications, well dah
Kelp tablets (for iodine which Aus soils, and subsequently Aus produce is low in) - this helps your thyroid which controls your metabolism
something called "Flu Biotic" when I'm feeling a little run down to boost my immune system - it's got ecchinacea, horseradish, garlic, and god knows what else. Tastes horrible, but I swear by it.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
