I'm scared if I use alt. supplements they will stall.

I have one a day multivitas, and calmagpotassium pills.

I'm pretty sure supplements are supplements.

Ditto to FoolishHeart! I have all my supplements from Walmart also. I've also found very comparable pricing at www.swansonhealthproducts.com . I may order from them for my next supply. I'm trying to find one that I don't have to take 3x a day. :P

Even before switching to alternatives, at the beginning when I was using 100% IP products, I never bought the IP supplements. I have the IP supplements sheet which I am attaching it in here for your info, and I follow what is recommanded to take and buy my supplements from Costco, Walmarts, GNC and local pharmacies.

Many re-starts failed miserably. I stopped IP as I wasn't sticking to the plan but always try to re-start.
