Non-Tablet Alternatives for Fat Burner/Vitamin
Hello everyone. I've been on Medi-Weight Loss for two weeks now. I've lost 7.8 lbs and 7.2 lbs of fat already. I'm really liking the diet and finding it pretty easy to do, actually. Much easier than I imagined.

My problem is with the supplements. I have major problems swallowing pills. I can't swallow any of the supplements they have given me whole. The NP at the clinic told me I could crush them up, but the fat burner and the multivitamin taste horrible. I can handle the MV for the most part because I take it in the morning with a shake and that manages to mask the taste pretty well. But I have to take 2 fat burners a day, and I don't want to have to drink two shakes just so I can get both of them down.

I've read these boards pretty thoroughly over the past couple of weeks, and I haven't seen any suggestions for non-pill forms of the fat burner and/or multivitamin. I'm inclined to keep taking the MV since it is included in the weekly price I pay at my clinic, but if I could find an alternative fat burner that would be amazing.

I know some people have taken their bottles to GNC (or a similar place) and asked them for something comparable. You could do that and add that you're looking for a liquid. But honestly, I've hardly taken them b/c I don't like the taste when I swallow them whole.

Thanks for the advice. I actually skipped a couple of days taking the supplements this week because I didn't have my pill crusher with me and couldn't choke them down otherwise. I still lost well, so I may just stop taking them after I run out.
