If you have a healthy, diverse diet you really don't need to take any extra vitamins, unless you get some sorta rush from flushing your hard earned money down the toilet.

I take the Rainbow Light Women's One. Pretty sure they make a men's version, too. I like them because they're vegetarian and don't contain gelatin.

I'm more than happy to pay $26.99 every 150 days to ensure good health rather than nit pick over every piece of food I eat to ensure I'm getting enough of each vitamin and mineral. Life is too short and I'm fortunate enough not to be hurting for cash. :)

You're right, to an extent.

A daily multivitamin, however, helps to make up for any deficiencies. In some cases, fruits and vegetables today have less nutrients than they did 50 years ago, because of more nutrient-sparse soil and the use of pesticides. Not to say one shouldn't eat real food, but even real foods may leave one with less nutrients than necessary - especially athletes.

This is true.

There are also genetically modified crops, like corn and rice for example, that have been modified to include nutrients typically lacking in diets of people who rely heavily on those crops. Vitamin A is one such nutrient that's been added to certain strains of rice to prevent Vitamin A deficiencies in rice-based societies, which tend to have higher prevalenace of disease manifested through Vitamin A deficiency.

Not sayin' this is good or bad, just sayin'.

I'm cheap...

I buy Berkley & Jenson (BJ's wholesale generic equivalent of GNC's mega men) plus some extra C, E, fish oil, and glucosamine/condroitin. I swear to dawg I feel less soreness in my joints when I take the gc. And what von said; vitamins aren't going to break me.
