I think that most of us, weight problem or no weight problem, are overfed and undernourished. We focus on foods that deliver an imbalance of energy & nutrition. We get plenty of energy in the form of calories but we starve our bodies of the nutrients they need for both proper & optimal function.

Specifically, in this overfed and undernourished 2 part series, I want to talk about 5 nutrients I feel most of us aren't getting enough of. I'll dive into why they're important and how we can get more.

We have an unfortunate tendency to rely on processed foods that deliver energy without nutrition (or with little nutrition). This leads to "malnutrition of affluence" or a situation of being overfed and undernourished.

We simply aren't giving our bodies the raw materials they need to function optimally. This leads to:

  • Obesity
  • Fatigue
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic disease

Instead of looking at health & weight loss through the lens of restriction and deprivation, I'd encourage everyone to focus on equipping your body to function optimally so it creates a state of leanness, energy and vitality. When making food choices, ask yourself:

  • Is this energy & nutrition or one without the other?

In this series, I want to focus on 5 things I feel we need more of. In part one, I'll be focusing on essential fatty acids & vitamin D.

In today's episode I'll focus on essential fatty acids and:

  • What they are
  • What they do
  • The problems related to deficiency
  • The problems with the Standard American Diet & essential fatty acids
  • How to consume more
  • The difference between omega 3s and omega 6s
  • How to reduce omega 6s
  • How to increase omega 3s

Related to vitamin D, this episode addresses:

  • What it is
  • What it does
  • The problems related to deficiency
  • 3 ways to increase vitamin D
    • Sunshine
    • Food
    • Supplementation

In the next episode of this series we'll tackle

  • Magnesium
  • B Vitamins
  • Probiotics
