WEIGHT LOSS TIP: A big problem people face when they try to lose weight is controlling their appetite but did you know that a simple solution is to supplement your diet with a daily multi-vitamin and mineral.
A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition in 2008 showed that appetite was "significantly reduced" when a multivitamin and mineral supplement was taken while on a weight reducing program.1 This is great news because your appetite naturally tends to increase any time you go on a diet and you decrease your normal food intake.
Your appetite is what tells you to eat so as to provide your body with the energy and the nutrients necessary to keep you going. In order to lose weight you need to reduce your energy intake but in so doing you also reduce your nutrient intake which will increase your appetite to get you to eat more food so that your body can obtain the nutrients that it needs.
Multivitamin and mineral supplements contain most of the essential nutrients that your body needs so by daily supplementation you can still give your body the nutrients that it needs without having to eat more food. Of course make sure that you choose a good multivitamin and mineral formula that provides enough different nutrients with a high enough potency to meet your bodyís needs. One of the best books on the subject of what your body needs in terms of vitamins and minerals is Earl Mindellís Vitamin Bible.2
Start using a good multivitamin and mineral supplement and you will not only have less of an appetite but you will also notice how much healthier and energetic you feel all the time.
