One A Day
They're all good.: Use the least expensive multivitamin that has the widest variety of needed vitamins, most of which your body probably already has in excess, but also containing those you may be a bit low in. Brands usually don't matter, especially since you end up peeing most of (the excess unneeded) vitamin into the toilet anyway.

Is it good to use safeway brand medication like there vitimins(spellcheck), vs sombody like one a day?
Yes, should be fine: If a person has knowledge of nutrition and has a very balanced diet, then he may not need to take a daily multivitamin because his foods contain enough. I recommend each person take a multivitamin because many people don't have a truly balanced diet. Some people need more vitamin d, calcium, folate, omega3, etc..., depending on individual issues. Generics are fine if one trusts the store or maker. ...Read more

Exercise and support: Record for a week, how you eat now to build awareness. Think of losing 1-3 pounds/week. Exercise every day for at least 30 minutes. Vary the routine: aerobic (fast walking, cycling), resistance (weight/circuit training), stretching (yoga, pilates). Morning exercise may be best for weight loss. Sleep 7-9 hours regularly. Eat low carb, not just low fat. Switch to water. Make changes with a friend. ...Read more

I'm introducing my daughter to baby foods now. Do i feed her one kind for awhile before switching to a different one? Or can I try a new one every day
Probably not: If you are wearing disposable, one day contacts that you throw out at the end of each day, that is the proper procedure. If you are re-using them, then what is the point? But wearing them properly is safe for your eyes and vision, and some feel safer than the alternatives. ...Read more
