Question: Can Calcium, Vitamin C, & CLA combined cause weight gain

Patricia - Wed May 28, 2003 3:20 pm

I've always taken vitamins - sometimes just a vitamin c supplement or just a b-12....Recently - about two months ago I started taking Calcium, Vitamin C, & CLA combined (every day - not at the same time though) .....I noticed that I feel heavier than before (I haven't weighed myself - but I feel as if I gained weight) - why is that?....maybe the CLA?...I do exercise more than I did before and my diet has not changed at all.

Dear Patricia,
Before you start getting too worried about gaining weight have yourself weighed first. It is possible that you are only getting too worried about gaining weight without any reason to be.
