The "V" Word (Part One)

Everyone knows that the human body requires a certain amount of vitamins and minerals daily to function properly and remain healthy. A well balanced diet can supply your body with the nutrients it needs.Various health problems and disorders may arise if your diet does not supply your body with the vitamins it needs. The symptoms of vitamin deficiency will normally present themselves when the lack of vitamins is at an advanced level.

Those who don’t get enough vitamins A, B1, and B2 for example, will often feel tired, along with a loss of appetite. Other symptoms may include mental and emotional stress, listlessness, chapped lips, and various other symptoms.

The most common causes of deficiency include; a poor diet, alcoholism, stress, a lack of vitamins, or prescription medicine that may interfere with your absorption of vitamins.  If you are always feeling tired or a lack of energy, you may have a deficiency of vitamins in your body. About 20 years ago many people were mega-dosing vitamin supplements to make up for missing nutrients. Your body is only able to retain a limited amount of nutrients before it starts to either rid itself of the excess or store it in vital organs like the liver.

Mega-dosing can be dangerous as it causes the body to either miss out on vital nutrients or to stockpile it where it shouldn't. Skin blotches, chronic constipation, dehydration, migraines, seizures & anaphylactic shock are just a handful of the symptoms associated with mega dosing. As a result of this, many people discovered first hand that this did more harm than good. As with any dietary change, always seek the advice of a licensed and trained medical professional before proceeding.

Remember, you have a responsibility to ensure that your body is in optimal condition by treating it well with proper nutrition.

Zero Cost Weight Loss

"If it's for free, its for me."                                  --A good friend of mine
Low cost is great, but free is always better....

Weight loss plans can become very expensive when you consider all of the diet aids and techniques you may have to utilize to reach your goals. 

Today's economy almost precludes you from aggressively pursuing an effective weight loss program due to the anticipated expense involved.
