Are you in the middle of your weight loss journey, or maybe you’re just starting out? Chances are you’re on some kind of a diet. Which means that you will be restricting your calorie intake and probably limiting certain types of food.
Personally, I don’t believe in diets, because weight loss is very straightforward and simple, and restricting yourself from certain macronutrients is… stupid. Bread for example, would you want to give up freshly baked bread? Of course not!
Unless you have an allergy, or a problem digesting certain types of food, it doesn’t make sense to me.
You eat real food, you workout 4 times per week, you make sure you’re in a caloric deficit at all times, and you drink a bucket of water every day. Although, I do agree that weight loss is more of a mental battle than anything else.
It’s just the marketing people try to make a big deal out of it by complicating everything they possibly can and offer you a deceivingly simple solution. For money of course.
But I don’t want to talk about that, I want to talk about what all of these diets lead to.
You’re lacking and you don’t know it.
Since every diet is limiting in some way. That means you are, for a fact, lacking certain micronutrients, which are absolutely essential for your body’s optimal performance.
According to Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, even the top most popular diets in the US (Atkins for Life diet, The South Beach Diet, the DASH diet) do not provide sufficient amounts of micronutrients:
These findings are significant and indicate that an individual following a popular diet plan as suggested, with food alone, has a high likelihood of becoming micronutrient deficient; a state shown to be scientifically linked to an increased risk for many dangerous and debilitating health conditions and diseases. 
Now, these findings are based on the most popular diets, but imagine how much you lack if you follow something even more restricting. Like all the fad diets, which, in my opinion, are detrimental to your health and you should never follow them.
Yes, they may bring you quick results, but they are torture and only work short term, if at all.
How I came to this conclusion?
Granted, I wouldn’t be writing this article if I hadn’t experienced micronutrient deficiency myself. Even though I ate healthy by incorporating lots of fruits, vegetables and water into my diet, I still felt like I am not on top of my game.
Which lead me to think that my body is lacking something. Then I started doing research on the topic and I came to a simple conclusion – lack of micronutrients and minerals. Next thing I did was find a trusted manufacturer of vitamins and minerals with shipping to my country (preferably free), which lead me to a company named Bauer Nutrition.
Yes, I could go to a local pharmacy, but pharmacy prices here are so inflated that it’s cheaper for me to order from the UK, get a huge discount on a bulk order (buy 3, get 3 for free) and free shipping, than it is to purchase a similar product here. Because… economy, I guess?
Everything changed, literally.
Who would have thought that these tiny chemicals could have such a huge impact on my body? I certainly didn’t and was very skeptical at first. But on the second day I started noticing significant changes.
My skin looks healthier, my nails look healthier (I’m a guy and I noticed all of that, we normally don’t, ever), my brain transformed into a 24/7 idea machine, my energy levels are through the roof, my sex drive has increased, even my workout performance has improved.
All of these benefits are just from taking one pill a day, which contains your required daily dosage of vitamins and minerals. This is so simple, yet overlooked by the majority and I don’t understand why.
I now recommend taking multivitamins to all my friends and relatives. Does not have to be the brand I am using, any brand as long as it’s trusted and of high quality.
So I strongly advise you invest in a mix of multivitamins and minerals, especially when you’re on a diet plan. I would like to end this article with a brilliant quote:Take care of your body, and your body will take care of you. Click To Tweet
