My name is James and I’m based in Brisbane. I had gastric sleeve surgery on the 22nd of April to cure some respiratory issues. I had never set foot into a supplement store before and had no idea about any of the products in them. I was afraid to go in and explain my situation and admit that I knew nothing about supplements and nutrition.
I went into a store far from where I lived and left even more confused than when I had entered. I was told by the staff to consult my doctor about what I can and can’t have. I knew this wouldn’t work out either so I gave up. Then someone recommended Cost Price Supplements in Morningside. I sent of an email with some questions and I promptly heard back from the owner, Chris. He was so helpful and polite, and had recommended a couple of products that would suit me.
When I entered the store and introduced myself, he remembered me from our email the previous week. I explained to him about my surgery, my weight loss goals and he asked me about my taste preferences and picked out some samples for me to try while I was there. I was very impressed by Chris’ knowledge of the needs of bariatric patients and also his passion for helping those in the weight loss community.
Over the past three months, since surgery I’ve lost 29 kilos and have had more energy than I’ve ever had before and it wouldn’t have felt this easy without all the help I’ve had from Chris and his team. They’re always there to suggest the right supplements and I love that I can try them before I purchase them too.
I’d recommend them to anyone who’s had or having WLS, whether you’re new to supplements of not. They can steer you in the right direction and it’s great to have someone who’s knowledgeable about the WLS community and who cares. They’re also the cheapest place I’ve seen too.
