  • Best nutrients for 2020

    Okay. I want to eat healthier starting next year. What are some of the best nutrients I should be adding to my diet, whole foods or supplements. If they can help with weight loss, please let me know about those, too!

    I would recommend eating more fruits and vegetables. Make it a variety and eat as local as possible. If local fresh isn't available then frozen fruits and veggies would be the next best thing. You shouldn't need a supplement if you're eating a well balanced diet.

      That's exactly what I would recommend. Add more fiber to your diet from fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes and whole grains. Cut down on the carbs (because we all eat way too many unless we're on a diet that tells us not to) and bad fats, get adequate protein from health sources (lean cuts of meat, fish, nuts, etc.).

      If you feel that you should be taking a daily supplement for health/nutritional reasons, do not take the advice of anyone other than your doctor. This is important for two reasons.

      1 - Your doctor can tell you which supplements (and brands) to take as well as the correct daily dosage that is the best for your specific health needs based on your gender, age and dietary requirements. They will also know what you should avoid if you have a current health condition or are taking any medications.

      2 - Your doctor will make a record of what supplements you are taking so that if you should need to be prescribed medications in the future, they can make sure potential interactions are avoided.

        Good advice! Essentially if nutrition is a concern for you bigbobby I would talk to your doctor and find out what diet health recommendations the US government suggests for adult Americans, etc.

          Thanks! I had a feeling this is pretty much what would be best. I am trying to plan meals in advance to cut down on making decisions at the last minute and not taking out food so much.

          1000kw and anne thanks for the advice. I would definitely talk to my doctor if I was super concerned. Right now, I'm not. I just want to clean up my diet a bit. :)
