Certain factors must be followed to accomplish success with food supplementation in simple nutrition and overall fitness giving you the right formula for WEIGHT LOSS as well as strength, increased muscle mass and how to finally to maintain that without problems.
To Make Vitamins Work for You
- Vitamins are only food supplements; don’t ever take vitamins on an empty stomach.
- It is useless to have “garbage filled” daily nutrition and randomly take vitamins.
- The rule, that “if one is good then two to three times is better” does not apply when taking vitamins.
- Be careful because the “one magic pill” in many cases ends up being the “one tragic pill”.
- Learn to be “in touch” with your body’s needs, because certain symptoms and cravings are the body communicating with you to let you know that you might need to pay better attention to your health.
- Always try to find out the source of your aches, pains, and exhaustion before you take medication, supplements or vitamins to treat the symptoms and not the root of the problem.
- Stop listening to media hype on the “great new discovery” that will solve all your health problems.
- There is no such thing as one “pill” fixes all; one “drink” fixes all, one “food’ fixes all.
- There are “water soluble” vitamins and “oil soluble” vitamins.
Water Soluble Vitamins
- B-complex vitamins and vitamin C are water-soluble vitamins and are not stored in the body. While they must be replaced each day, one must be careful to maintain the proper intake balance.
- Water-soluble vitamins are easily destroyed or washed-out during food storage and preparation and are released by the body quicker according to your daily activities and stresses.
- You must be careful with over-dosing or mega-dosing.
Fat Soluble Vitamins
- Vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K. Small amounts of fat-soluble vitamins are needed to maintain good health.
- The body does not need these vitamins every day. Fat soluble vitamins are stored in the liver and fat (adipose) tissue when not used.
- You must be careful with randomly taking vitamin supplements, for most people need very little or no vitamins outside their daily diet.
- Fat-soluble vitamins in foods will not be lost when the foods that contain them are cooked.
- Mega-doses of vitamins A, D, E, or K can be toxic and lead to health problems.
What does the body want and how do we satisfy that without allowing the mind to interfere is the question that each one of us needs to resolve.
