Does anyone here take vitamins? Should I take vitamins?

If you're eating right you probably don't need them. If you're worried for whatever reason, go to your doc.

Get a blood test, most 'supplements' are biologically useless.

when i went to get my yearly physical a few years ago i was low in B12. Doc told me to go buy a B12 supplement. I purchased a B12 supplement and took for 60 days. It expensive - i think something like $1/day.

i think common wisdom if that they make for expensive urine -- unless you're specifically deficient in something like vitamin d or c, and for whatever reason you can't get it via good, normal, natural sources, and/or you are seriously ill and need a fix and are possibly hospitalised. in which case, yes, take them. but generally, popping pills with every meal doesn't seem to do anything -- in fact, some studies suggest it makes your health worse.

second getting a blood test. you get your car checked and serviced periodically so why not your own body? it's a decent snap shot.

eating well, almost constantly hydrating with a water bottle at my desk, and properly respecting sleep patterns and rest -- that means not taking devices or books to bed -- seemed to fix 99% of my tiredness and run-down feelings. even better if you can take long walks in nature or a jog a few times a week.

its amazing how something as simple as staying hydrated throughout the day makes you feel. Mentally and physically.

I buy two 2 liter water bottles and keep them on my desk. Usually finish both in a week or less.

I've never been a fan of the concept of nursing giant jugs of spitwater for weeks on end. Get a brita or something.

Don't you have to speak a lot? I have a 24 oz reusable bottle that I usually drink the balance of 2-3 times a day, and I mostly just sit quietly at a desk.

Yes I have to speak a lot but as long as you aren't yelling all the time you won't lose your voice. I drink more water at home since I don't drink soda or juice at all. Too much sugar.

OK but you should be drinking 2 liters a day, not 4 a week. hope you're refilling those bottles. i have something similar for my work desk and i make 3-4 refill stops per day, just to break things up and have an excuse for a walk/5 minute break.

I don't even have the thirst for that much water though. It's still better than those people who drink no water.

i just looked at my bottle at work. I drink between 1 and 2 liters per day. Lukewarm is ideal

i drink out of habit, not when i feel 'thirsty'. for e.g. a good habit, i think, is to gulp down half a pint of water or something immediately when waking up. it helps you to wake up and feel more alert and awake, and it's a good start to the morning routine before breakfast. that's a decent start to your daily intake right there and you haven't even had breakfast or brushed your teeth.

similarly, lots of people compulsively snack and always eat something, when what they really feel is ... thirst. drinking lots of water helps to control those urges to constantly be chewing or grabbing for something. it fills you up.

breakfast is the most boring meal. i normally have greek yoghurt with blueberry/raspberry and then granola/honey. when i get sick of dairy i switch to something like a poached egg on a crumpet or some sort of bagel or something.

I usually just blend a smoothie, or if I'm running late, just skip it altogether.

I'll crush a nice full made breakfast on the weekends though.

You don't cook it, you pull off all the scales while its alive and throw away the body.

I have been losing weight while under self isolation. I have plenty of food saved up but don't really have the hunger for any of it. I am not really doing much around the house to need 3 meals worth of energy I feel.

No. I have been sleeping a lot. I think I sleep more than I am awake now that I stopped vaping.

I know you're probably not asking, but there's cardio and bodyweight exercises you can keep yourself occupied with indoors. Might improve appetite and help you feel less perpetually sleepy. I've a preference for jumping jacks, jump rope, some speedbag (thanks, grandpa), and lots of stretching. Concrete garage floor is nice for this.
