Winning at macronutrients is all about finding the nutritional truth, finding the right mentor, and finding a plan that is right for YOU. It’s all do this, don’t do that; eat this, don’t eat that. But things get a bit tricky when our health strategy is only about counting daily grams of protein, fat, and carbs.
We absolutely have to know how to win at micronutrients too and here’s why:
Vitamins and minerals are the catalyst to all of the major biochemical reactions in metabolism. Taking daily vitamins ensures that reactions take place in the manner with which they were designed.
In nature, the body’s only solution to meet nutritional and biochemical needs is to eat. The problem is, if you have a micronutrient deficiency say, magnesium, you don’t actually ever “crave” magnesium -- you just get hungry. Not good if you’re trying to lose weight. We have found a profound impact on craving control when you ensure that your body has all the necessary micronutrient needs meet!
Detox Your Body
Part of the amazing effect of micronutrients are the anti-oxidation effects of certain vitamins, like all of the B vitamins. Oxidative stress is the body’s way of dealing with aging and breakdown -- minimizing the amount of this oxidative stress is key to a healthy immune system, preventing disease, curing disease, and longevity.
