Gummy vitamins as a candy replacement

By admin
As part of my weight loss journey I’ve started taking more vitamins and


guilty pleasure is I buy them all as gummies. The gummy vitamins, while possessing myriad mystical benefits, have an add-on effect of being a habitual substitution for buying candy from the gas station.

Magnesium – Helps with sleep and stress reduction

L-Theanine – An amino acid that takes the jitters out of caffeine and reduces stress

Ashwagandha – An African

root powder that reduces stress

Vitamin C – To

help with a skin condition

Are all those stress reduction vitamins producing extreme levels of chill? I don’t spend

my days

in a Buddha-like zen state, but my resting and active heart rate has gone down

~15 bpm

. A lot of my recent weight loss seems to be from the stress reduction alone. But who knows, scientists probably.

Anyways, I’m not a doctor or a scientist. Don’t take advice from me. This was less a post about vitamins and weight loss and more a post about how I eat candy every day but pretend it’s healthy.
