    I was browsing through the different meal plans in the Cut Diet yesterday and saw that you are supposed to consume at least two to three multi-vitamins per day. isn't that too much??

    There's really very little reason to take multivitamins. There's only a handful of things in there that are useful, and most of them are in quantities that are so small that you might as well not bother (vitamin C, E).

    It is extremely unlikely that you'll actually have a dietary deficiency that would require 90% of the stuff in there. I know this is something that's still debated, but it's worth thinking about if you're going to be taking 3 expensive pills a day.

    Many multivitamins are dosed in two-three tablet doses anyways. I'll bet that's all you're seeing.

    Depends on how much of each vitamin is in your vitamin. The GNC Mega Men vitamins have high doses in them, AND it says you're supposed to take two a day. Centrum or whatever only has 100% of everything and it says you're supposed to take one a day.
