Malnutrition Causes Obesity


Axiom Number One - Nourish your body.

Probably the most important and least understood axiom ofsuccessful weight loss is that you have to nourish your body.The main reason why most people are overweight is that they aremalnourished. In our modern grocery stores are all kinds ofprocessed and packaged foods. The nutritional value of any food substance is inversely proportional to the amount of processing. The more a food is processed, the less nutritionis present.

Trace minerals and elements

Food grown by today's commercial methods are not grown in healthy soil. The soil is essentially dead and there is no life (nitrogen)sources in that soil. The nitrogen is added to the soil as liquid fertilizer along with a lot of not sogood for your health -pesticides. This approach to farmingmay produce some great harvests, by weight, but not by nutrition standards. A lot of what the human body needsis lost in this type of food production.

Incomplete foods

When you eat a lot of heavily processed food grown in dead soil you do not get all the nutrients that the human bodyneeds. You end up hungry all the time so you eat more of the same foods. In addition to being incomplete foods, theymore often than not have added sweeteners and sometimeseven added chemicals like aspartame (Nutrasweet). The bodyhas to do something with all the added incomplete caloriesso it turns them into fat.

Nutritional density

When you eat whole foods that have been grown in soil thathas not been depleted by the commercial farming process, youare getting all the nutrients that you need. You finish a meal and feel satisfied. Often when you finish a really whole and complete meal you end up feeling like you don't needto eat for a week or so. On the other hand, when you eatincomplete foods, you are usually hungry as soon as yourstomach empties, about thirty minutes.

Why organic is cheaper

While good organic produce may cost more than the non-organicvariety, it is still cheaper to eat organic. This is becausethe organic foods actually satisfy you and will turn off yourhunger. The non-organic foods do not turn off your hunger and usually you end up eating a lot more of them, and seem tobe always hungry. This is not to mention all the pesticidesthat are included in the non-organic foods. Chemotherapy isnot cheap these days.

The wrong kind of weight loss

Promises of lost pounds in weeks are rampant. The problem with all of these is that the biochemistry of the human takes time to put weight on -and to take it off. Youmay drop a few pounds on some low "carbohydrate diet" but you are only losing water and lean muscle mass, exactly what you don't want to lose. While the scale may be important, your health and nutrition are much more important.A diet consisting of whole organic fruits, vegetables and complex carbohydrates with no added sweeteners will nourishyour body while you lose weight without hunger.

Summary

The mainstay of any successful diet program has to be feedingthe human body what it needs. In order to accomplish that today, you have to eat organic whole foods, preferably onegood meal a day. This will go a long way to slow down yourappetite and make it easier to resist all those temptingnutritionally bereft hollow calories out there.
