    Oh woops I didn't even think of that... I checked the label of his Centrum Men 50+ and it has 300ug of folic acid. So he's actually been on a higher daily dose than I realised! Shall I wean him off the extra folic acid or add on the 400mg Folate instead? I don't mind him taking extra (look at me speaking for him, haha) if it gives us a better chance. Folate and folic acid are both on the cheaper end anyway

    Also I was looking at new Carnitine tablets (can you tell I'm on a supplement-buying rampage?!) and was wondering if this one looked any good? I've copied out nutritional info:

    Vit D3 - 400iu
    Riboflavin (Vit B2) - 0.7mg
    Niacin (Vit B3) - 8mg
    Vit B6 - 0.7mg
    Biotin - 25ug
    Chromium - 40ug
    L-Carnitine L-Tartrate - 1100mg

    The link is: https://www.amazon.co.uk/L-Carnitine...NsaWNrPXRydWU=

    Just wanted to ask as I remember you advising others to avoid anything with too much of other stuff in it... and this is a wee bit over the 1000mg a day he's been taking xx

    I would just wean him off of it. Men don't need the additional folic acid/folate since they won't be pregnant.

    No that's all fine. The other stuff is a pretty low dose, so adding onto his normal vitamin is not a big deal.

    My pleasure I hope youíre doing well Atomic - I just had one more question about breakfast/food. Iím currently eating 3 spoons of oat bran + 2 spoons of oats with full fat milk, plus nuts, plus fruit, for breakfast. Is this boy friendly? Itís certainly very filling but I realised I never read anything about oat bran before on hereÖ

    Thanks ✨ xx

    Oat bran is quite high in fiber, which can absorb nutrients. I'd probably just go with the oats alone, but I doubt it really causes any harm

    Hey Atomic, I hope youíre well. Unfortunately I have a sinus infection I canít taste or smell a thing! Which is making eating more really really difficult (I currently have zero appetite- at any other time this would be a great way to lose some weight!).

    Iíve requested a course of antibiotics from my doctors and wondering if this will mess with my sway at all? And if so, what I could do to combat it?

    Iím so annoyed this has happened and itís definitely led to me eating less / not having my snacks, but Iím still trying to mix protein and carbs as often as I canÖ

    Should have kept washing my hands 🤦🏻*♀️

    Thanks 😊 xx
