I’ve lost 20kg and even though I’m trying to follow the recommended guileless in the Fast800 book, I thought it’d be wise to take a Vitamin supplement, such as Potassium, Magnesium, Vitamins B and D as recommended in the book. I’ve lost 20 kg and I’m quite happy about my weight loss, which I’ve combined with a good level of fitness. Now I’m losing my last 2 or 3 kilos. Any recommendations? (I’m in the UK)

Note that Dr Mosley suggests a supplement containing these minerals and vitamins, rather than those micronutrients alone.
Magnesium is the most difficult to find in a multimineral/ multivitamin supplement: often the dose is low, or it is in a form that is poorly absorbed (eg. sulphate).
Given that your diet has been imbalanced and poorly varied for some time, I would suggest discussing your choice of ‘complete’ supplement with your family doctor, pharmacist or dietician.
I guess I’ll have to go to my NHS doctor had tell him. Maybe I should have a blood test done. I had one done something like 4 months ago shortly after I begun my weight loss (I had lost 6 kg or so and was already feeling much better).
I guess you’re right, Thanks a lot.
