Why is Someone Overweight?

Someone is overweight because their body is lacking nutrition and requires additional nutrients from food to maintain a healthy weight and perform. Being hungry and eating food with little nutrient content, such as empty calories, like sugar and junk or fast food, does not promote healthy weight and performance. Eating a complete diet of nutrient-dense foods, such as vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, and dairy, with additional dietary supplements, promotes healthy weight and performance.

Will Eating Make Someone Gain Weight?

Someone feels hungry because their body is craving nutrition from food to maintain a healthy weight, perform and recover. They may overeat to get more nutrition, so they are best avoiding empty calories which cause weight gain, such as sugar and junk food; instead eating a healthy diet of nutrient dense foods, such as vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, and dairy.

How to Lose Weight on a Healthy Diet?

Eat a healthy complete diet of nutrient dense foods and avoid empty calories and junk food, to lose weight:

  • Eat regular, complete, and balanced meals of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and avoid drinking and snacking on empty calories and junk food.
  • Reduce the size of carbohydrate portions in all meals.
  • Add dietary supplements to enhance complete meals and promote healthy performance.

What is a Healthy Diet?

A healthy diet is a complete diet, made up of complete meals with a balance of nutrient dense foods that contain essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Add dietary supplements to a complete diet to increase the amount of nutrients for healthy weight and performance.

What is a Complete Meal?

A complete meal contains protein, fats, and carbohydrates, in the form of nutrient dense foods such as vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, and dairy. Eating incomplete meals and skipping meals does not promote healthy body performance. Dietary supplements are added to a complete meal to increase nutrient density, to maintain a healthy weight and promote performance and recovery.

What Dietary Supplements Can Someone Take?

Dietary supplements work best when added to a healthy diet of complete meals that contain vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, and dairy. Multivitamins with minerals supply the body with essential nutrients for healthy weight and performance. Superfoods, spices, herbs, botanicals, tonics and adaptogens can also be added to increase healthy body performance to maintain a healthy weight.
