Nutritional Medicine , Separating Fact from Fiction
If a calorie were just a calorie any LOW-CALORIE plan should WORK, RIGHT?
No, not necessarily. There is a growing need to enhance the design of calorie-deficit meal plans by applying the mounting evidence around nutraceuticals. Providing nutrient dense foods is part of the art of designing attractive menus that achieve the objective…weight loss. Now we have new insight on how nutraceuticals can be selectively added to meal plans to optimize weight loss.
Considering all the notorious weight loss plans, public health meal plans, fad diets and individualized diets used over the years, still the latest World Health Organization (WHO) statistics on overweight and obesity remain staggeringly depressing. As of 2014 when WHO released global obesity statistics at 13%, a percentage doubling that of the 1980’s, nutritional interventions suddenly seemed paltry and ineffective at best.
Despite obesity being a result of a multifactorial system dysfunction, it is complicated at the heart of things by poor nutritional choices. While exercise is a critical piece of this multifactorial system, if nutrition does not lay a good foundation, problems with excess weight and the health threatening inflammation the body suffers along with it will continue at the current startling rate.
Enter the 10 “game-changers” for optimizing any calorie-deficit plan. Including as many of these ten nutraceuticals can, by various mechanisms, set the physiological environment for losing weight, stabilizing blood sugar, controlling hunger, increasing insulin sensitivity, increasing thermogenesis and/ or affecting hormones regulating weight.
Optimize your weight loss plan with these 10 nutraceuticals
While each of the following nutraceuticals may contribute a different percentage of benefit from small to large, adding even small percentage improvements together will equal a larger percentage of weight loss facilitation:
By utilizing the above nutraceuticals to optimize nutrition plans the mission is to provide healthier products that facilitate sustainable weight loss.
