- Question from Mel: What about the use of vitamins and supplements in weight loss?
- Answers - Cyndi Thomson, Ph.D., R.D. My short answer would be, if you're on a weight loss diet that is less than 1500 calories a day it would be prudent to take a multivitamin mineral supplement. But taking a supplement is not known to improve weight loss.
