Micronutrients? How many people know that deficiencies in vitamins and minerals can cause weight gain and illness? A new book is now available to help with education about a little known cause of health problems and weight gain. There are hundreds of diets for losing weight, but many people do not think about their lack of vitamins and minerals as a cause of weight gain.
“The Micronutrient Miracle” by Jason Calton, PhD, and Mira Calton, CN, presents a complete plan for learning about micronutrients, deficiencies in your diet, and the effects of deficiencies on your health in a beautiful and well-organized book. The book contains a 28-day plan to lose weight, increase your energy, and reverse disease. Mira presents her own experience with the study of micronutrients and her health problem with osteoporosis, and her journey to reversing this condition.
The authors believe that food processing is the cause of vitamin and nutrient deficiency in our diets. They present a helpful chart at the beginning of their book that contains a complete list of the needed vitamins and minerals that our diet should contain, and the health issues that a lack of any of these can cause. Chapter 6 presents a complete chart of the amounts of these vitamins and minerals that our bodies need. The helpful chart for analyzing supplements that are currently on the market is of interest.
After reading Chapter 6 about the nutrients, vitamin supplements, and their benefits, you will want to read the previous chapter and prepare to shop in a way that you might not have shopped for food before. Chapter 5 presents a wealth of information to use when shopping for food. Tips for purchasing organic foods without breaking the budget are of interest. Tips for choosing frozen vs. canned foods are of interest. Shopping solutions for every category of food and beverages are included in the chapter.
Other helpful and informative chapters include information on personalizing a plan to help with specific health conditions and the Caltons’ signature 28-day plan for changing your health and losing weight. A chapter with healthy recipes is also included.
