How to get enough nutrients

How to get enough nutrients

Getting enough nutrients through your diet is challenging.  Try these tips to increase your nutrient intake and avoid deficiencies that can lead to inflammatory conditions, disease and declines in overall health.

If it tastes bad it must be good for you…right?

Did your mother need to convince you to eat your vegetables?  Most kids would rather fill-up on salty fries dunked in rich, savory ketchup than suffer through a bitter plate of kale, broccoli or spinach.  They grow up thinking healthy foods just don’t taste good.

As adults, we become more concerned with our health and seek out ways to change our unhealthy behaviors.

Avoid processed foods

Processing reduces the amount of nutrients in food, whether it’s during home cooking, such as boiling or frying, or commercial processing methods that increase shelf life.

If you were raised on a diet filled with highly processed, packaged foods, your taste buds may be shocked by dishes that lack sugar, flavorings and preservatives.  You may have simply lost touch with your natural food instincts.

Processed foods contain tons of hidden sugar, which can be highly addictive.  It may be hard to believe now, but once you get away from eating these types of foods for a period of time, it’s likely they won’t taste as good to you as they once did.

Make small changes

Making small changes is an effective way to gradually transition to a healthier lifestyle.  Gradual changes can be easier for the body to accept and adopt as a long-term habit. For example, instead of trying to give up soda cold turkey, take baby steps by increasing your water intake and cutting back to just one or two sodas a week.  Eventually you’ll realize you can live without it.

Adding supplements to your daily routine

One small, simple change that doesn’t require giving anything up is incorporating supplements into your daily routine.

The body needs fuel to keep it running like a well-oiled machine.  But to take in sufficient nutrients naturally through diet has become nearly impossible for the average modern American, making supplementation more important now than ever before.  

The fact is, most people lack the vital nutrients they need for overall good health.

Research shows that vitamin deficiencies are associated with inflammatory conditions, disease processes and declines in overall health. Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies are known to suppress immune function and contribute to chronic degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
