When foods are depleted of their natural nutrients the consequences are poor health and/or unwanted weight gain. Those getting the least amount of nutrition will gain the most and those with the highest intake of vitamins and minerals are able to stabilize and balance their weight more easily.
Low nutrient levels can trigger uncontrollable cravings that make it almost impossible to resist the temptations of eating large amounts of foods without satisfying the need for the nutrients our bodies require on a daily basis.
Once we understand that poor nutrition plays an important role in maintaining a healthy weight we need to make certain that we consume adequate amounts of essential nutrients every single day to avoid fatigue and to avoid a slow metabolism with its many side effects.
We can get our daily nutrients from 6 to 8 servings of fruits and vegetables along with proteins such as meat, chicken, eggs, fish, seafood and healthy fats.
