How Does Proper Nutrition Help You to Lose Weight

There are many different approaches to losing weight.  Some individuals believe that cutting out sugar is the best way to go.  Others believe that carbs are the enemy.  Other individuals say that it doesn’t matter what you eat, as long as you exercise.  The truth is, everybody’s metabolism works differently.  However, there are a few ways that nutrition can actually enrich your life and help you to lose weight and feel great!

The first tip is very simple: try to prepare meals at home.  Not only is this a healthier option, but it is also much more affordable.  The nutritional advantage is choosing exactly which ingredients you ingest.  This means using omega-3 rich foods, better quality produce and fresher ingredients for all of your meals.  This is truly the best way to customize a diet.


Secondly, like every other health category, it is best to consult with a specialist: your nutritionist.  They can help you outline a diet that will help you reach your goals.  Whether you are trying to lose weight, “bulk up” or limit your intake for medical reasons, they are the best professionals to take care of your needs.  Just as you would visit your orthopedist if you had a broken ankle, a nutritionist will complete a comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and treatment plan for you. Dr Gucciardo  combines his knowledge as a chiropractor and nutritional training to advise the best tailored program for your body.

Listen To Your Body

Knowing your limits is our next piece of advice.  Listen to your body, are you truly hungry?  Although it is highly advised to cut out sugars, carbohydrates, soda and other foods and beverages which does not have much nutritional value, moderation is the key.  Eating a well balanced diet 99% of the time is the best way to prevent obesity, heart disease, joint pain and other health complications associated with nutritional deficiencies.  

Nutritionists will advise you to eat a variety of foods and you may wonder how each specific food group will help you to lose weight.  Green vegetables are one of the least consumed products in the average American diet.  Greens are an essential source of vitamins, including vitamins A, C, E and K.  Additionally, fresh or steamed broccoli, cabbage and kale are great ways to increase your potassium, zinc and iron intake.  Sweeter vegetables such as beets, potatoes, onions, sweet squash and yams will satisfy your sweet tooth while filling you up with vitamins and nutrients.  Vitamin C and antioxidants should be consumed daily.  Eating fruit will provide you with these essential ingredients.  Various types of berries are also known to have antioxidant powers, which are essential for overall body balance and health
