Why Healthy Eaters Can End Up Unhealthy!
You probably have heard that a healthy diet should include plenty of whole foods, vegetables, and fiber. But you may not be aware that many of these "health foods" can cause nutrient deficiencies, leaving you at risk of developing health issues.
After watching this course, you will know what essential vitamins and minerals support your metabolism and what steps you can take to boost your body's nutrient stores.
Nutrients support your physiological functioning and overall health. On the other hand, anti-nutrients block the absorption of essential nutrients and are found in foods like nuts and seeds, cruciferous vegetables, and spinach.
Trying to eat "healthy" may have unwittingly contributed to lower levels of vitamins and minerals in your body.
Perhaps you feel like you are doing all the right things, but nothing seems to be working. You eat healthily but still feel tired and can't shift that stubborn belly fat… Nutrient deficiencies may be to blame!
This course will cover the most common anti-nutrients, and you will learn about:
