06 Jun EATING A BALANCED, HEALTHTY DIET…DO YOU REALLY NEED VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS?
The following is only part of the extensive information we offer as part of our physician-directed weight loss programs in Jacksonville. In a perfect world our nutritional needs would be met by a balanced, healthy diet. According to nutritionists, to attain a balanced diet you must obtain your calories from the proper ratio of fat, protein, and complex carbohydrate by eating wholesome, nutritious foods from the four food groups. Are you sure that your diet meets these requirements? Are you eating five servings of fruits and vegetables a day? How often to you eat whole grain breads and cereals?
- The Anarem Report revealed that 100% of 21,500 individuals, “not a single individual consumed the 10 most needed nutrients in the body.”
- The U.S. Senate Document #264 states, “99% of the American people are deficient in vitamins and minerals…”
The fact is that many of us —even those who feel they eat well— do not eat a balanced, healthy diet. Almost 40% of the calories in most people’s diets come from highly processed convenience and snack foods that are high in fat and sugar but contain few of the vitamins or minerals that we really need. In addition to that, due to the way foods are now grown and processed you are not really getting all that you are told you are getting.
