How Important Are Supplements?Do I really need to take a daily multivitamin?
You can likely skip the multi if you're consuming at least 1,800 calories a day and your diet is generally balanced and healthy -- meaning lots of fruits and veggies, whole grains, some healthy fat and protein, says McManus.
