Healthier Habits 

Getting healthy and losing weight is a common New Years Resolutions that is commonly long forgotten by March.  Sometimes just a little information how to eat healthier, can make the difference by taking the focus off the weight loss and putting it back onto what is really important.  Putting good food and the right nutrients in can help your body function properly, give you more energy and even shed some excess pounds.

Over doing it with excessive exercise and cutting way back on calories will deplete your body of the nutrients it requires to be healthy as you lose weight.

Consult your family doctor and a personal trainer for effective exercise strategies that will help you reach your weight loss goals and then consider how some key vitamins can help you get the nutrition you need while getting healthy.

Proper Nutrition For A Healthy Weight 

Eating Healthy – Fill your grocery cart, your fridge and your meals with basic protein, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and some dairy. Make the calories you are consuming nutrient rich foods.

Multi Vitamin – 
An all natural Multi Vitamin free of artificial dyes, colours and sweeteners can provide your body with the minimum amount of vitamins A, B, C, D, E and folic acids it needs on a daily basis. Add in the vitamins you will get from eating all those fresh vegetables and fruits, and you are on your way to healthy.

B Vitamins – B vitamins re the fuel for your metabolism. They help in cell production, as food digestion. B Vitamins affect glucose tolerance, are involved in energy production and help to control fat metabolism.

Fibre – A high-fiber diet helps to reduce the risk of developing various conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, constipation and some cancers. Plus, for those that had weight loss on their resolution list this year, a high fibre intake has been associated with a lower body weight.

Vitamin D
 – Calcium and Vitamin D work together to not only grow strong bones, but also have been shown to regulate normal blood sugar levels. These important nutrients may also help your body burn more calories and store less fat.

Omega 3s
This essential fatty acid may help you feel full longer, reduce inflammation and help your muscles recover faster after exercise. Omega 3 fatty acids improve the body’s blood flow to the muscles during exercise and help your metabolism work more efficiently.
