Nutrient Deficiency

If you are looking at the idea of healthy eating for weight loss reasons, then you should be congratulated on your foresight, because healthy eating isn't just about weight loss. Healthy eating is all about having good health. With this in order, you can't help but have a great looking, trim body.

It's a question of looking at the problem in a different way. Although your target may be to lose weight, if you focus on your health instead, the weight will fall off seemingly all by itself.

Most people eat unhealthy food as this is cheap, quick and readily available. This is attractive when you have multiple roles in life, keeping you busy. What you may not realise is the enormous damage you are setting up for yourself and your family for the future.

Unhealthy food is nutrient deficient. This means your body cannot work properly. And so you get ailments, diseases. When your body is deficient in nutrition, it also makes you constantly hungry. This is in an effort to get you to provide it with some proper food. But you keep eating the wrong foods, which makes your body more hungry.

The end result is not only more ill health, but excess weight gain, even obesity.

Healthy eating means you feed your body with all the right nutrition so it feels good and is satisfied. When your body is nutritionally satisfied, you no longer feel hungry. The interesting spin off from this is that you no longer crave unhealthy food. Instead, all you want is good, wholesome, nutritious food. Your body comes alive.

It's the unhealthy foods which make you fat and unhealthy. And keeps you dull, unable to realise that you need real food.

Sadly, there is little real health education about today and even less proper nutritional education. Most people have been taught to eat all the wrong foods. You have been taught that the wrong foods are healthy, whereas the reverse is true.

Even doctors are not trained in nutrition. Yet most people feel they should go to their doctor for advice on nutrition. Most have as much information as you do.

There are many diets and dietary fads currently available, marketed by people who have little nutritional knowledge. Many do allow you to lose weight, sometimes quite rapidly. But the majority of them are unhealthy. This means that the weight loss cannot last. This means your health is likely to suffer.

When you make a conscious effect to understand that only in healthy eating can your body make permanent changes to a healthy weight. Healthy eating for weight loss means you can eat as much of you want of the right foods, and still lose weight.
