Vitamin D is a one of hottest health topic!
I’ ve mentioned before that I have a lot of clients suffering from this problem.
Unfortunately people in Gulf and Middle East suffer from vitamin D deficiency.
This problem is affecting the healthy weight loss plans, and is contributing to obesity as well.
That’s why one of the major tests I am asking for recently is the Vitamin D test, besides other important ones of course.
Vitamin D helps your body use the calcium and phosphorus from your food.
Its deficiency affects your bones. So they don’t form properly because the calcium cannot be incorporated into them. Your bones will eventually lack minerals which make them fragile.
Vitamin D is very important in order to maintain good bone density and to prevent osteoporosis.
But what’s the connection between vitamin D deficiency and weight loss??
As we said before Vitamin D is extremely important for proper body functioning.
The connection is still unknown but researches proved that normal vitamin D levels in blood at the beginning of your diet will contribute to better results.
This is when scientists have measured the results in women who are overweight before and after their diet. These women had low vitamin D levels in blood.
They usually tried many diets but without success. They have increased the vitamin D supply before dieting which seemed to be successful, and eventually they ended up losing weight!
Here are some effective solutions:
– Spend only 15 minutes per day in the sun without any sunscreen on.
– For those who live in climates that don’t allow them to be outside that often, supplement with a Vitamin D3 supplement, after checking with your doctor regarding your individual Vitamin D levels.
Nutrition will help you more than 50 percent to recover!!
Include these foods in your diet since they are very high in vitamin D: fish oil, Salmon, Sardines in oil, Soy-milk, formula milk for babies enriched with vitamin D, margarine, chicken, cheese, beef liver and egg yolk.
Just to note that Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, so it cannot be found in zero fat products unless these products were fortified with that vitamin.
