Focus on the small stuff in your diet for weight management! The micronutrients are essential for keeping the body strong, healthy, and in proper balance. There are 16 vitamins, 60 minerals, 3 essential fatty acids, and 12 essential amino acids that have been identified as essential.
Minerals come from the earth, so we are most deficient in these because of the poor condition of our soils today. Everyone would be hard pressed to have the correct balance of minerals today without daily supplementation. Empty calories are in foods where the micronutrients have been stripped away with just the calories left, which contributes to weight gain. Avoid foods in a box, can, or package to stop eating foods that cause a deficiency of micronutrients. Switch to nutrient packed food choices!
Make food your solution, not your problem!
