I started taking a Multi-vitamin supplement every day and began also to gain more weight.
Weight gain is all about lifestyle
You may inherit genes to cause you to have a slow metabolism or you may eat like your parents did thus old habits are hard to break. Thus, if you eat like your parents did and they too were obese, it may be because of them being too poor to eat more produce and perhaps you also got into the habit of buying more carbohydrates and processed foods.
Multivitamin supplements help you lose weight.
I read that taking multivitamins from having a bad diet that lacks necessary nutrients, minerals and vitamins and perhaps being sedentary and not getting outside and in the sunshine, can lead to having to take extra Vitamin D and a daily dose of supplemental vitamins and minerals such as the One A Day vitamin tablet.
You might take a dose of extra B vitamins and get a better appetite. This in turn causes weight gain. If you can focus on what you are drinking and eating, perhaps it's all more about your weight gain from poor diet and poor lifestyle choices, perhaps passed on by your parents onto you. You may be unable to buy supplemental vitamins, or even purchase a reasonable supply of fresh produce and fish so you might be like so many in America, on a diet of FAST FOOD and JUNK FOOD and SODA POP and SWEET foods like Candy, donuts, drink fruit drinks that contain lots of calories from concentrated fructose and added high fructose corn syrup.
Did you know that even an energy bar that contains peanuts, caramel and oats although flavorful and handy and cheap, they pack lots of calories.
Lifestyle along with supplements is a must:
The thing that makes multivitamin and multi-mineral supplements a bad idea is only if you just take the vitamin pills but stay on your bad diet habits. The thing that you need to change is first your thinking, then replace sugary foods and high carbohydrate foods with fresh fruit with fiber and fresh vegetables not canned, but fresh from the produce section of your local supermarket, and take time to chose between the fruits and vegetables that can be used in a certain type of meal which will include certain recipes that include a variety of vegetables, fish, meat and poultry, rice, beans or pasta and sauces and seasonings that add spice and flavor but not so much calories to your meal plans. You can get recipes for helping you lose weight through proper nutritional choices but it all depends on if you are willing to change your old habits to work with your goals to lose extra pounds and maybe over time eliminate many types of foods and beverages from your daily diet and replace the bad with the good.
Cutting down on daily food portions:
One simple thing is to try to just eat less of everything you normally eat and drink less beverages that have a high sugar content. Even have coffee or tea with half the sugar. Half portions are best realized if you actually use a smaller plate. If you use a smaller plate, your meal will still look like a full variety of food but by cutting your portion sizes you will CUT THE POUNDS. Eventually the stomach will feel full when it is not stuffed. You will notice that if you eat salty foods and drink a beverage you will hold more water in your body that causes water weight. If you reduce salt in your daily habits of eating, you might find that you eliminate more fluid naturally and that is good because having too much salt, thus too much water volume from retention, your blood pressure will go down to a lower level that is better than it was when you consumed lots of salt.
I am sharing this because it means a lot to me to let others know things that will help improve health, vitality and most of all, a longer life span.
