Lose weight and gain nutrients

Yes, that is possible honestly!

When trying to lose weight it’s important to do it safely, losing sensible amounts on a regular basis is the safest and most likely way to lose and maintain weight loss.

One pound of fat contains 3,500 calories so cutting your calorie intake by 500 calories per day on average, should see you lose 1 pound per week. While it might not seem like much, over time this mounts up.

However, if you are hungry you are less likely to stick to your goals so choosing nutrient rich foods to fill you up and keep the hunger pangs at bay is essential

One study found that some foods — including fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and yogurt — were connected with weight loss.

So, how do you incorporate as many nutrients as possible to keep you full, healthy and lose weight?

There are 7 major groups of nutrients, and you need to ensure to keep all of them in your diet when losing weight:

 

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are a major source of energy for our body, despite their bad reputation, carbohydrates are vital to your health for many reasons.

Evidence shows that eating plenty of fruit, vegetables and whole grains which are full of carbohydrates can help you control your weight. Their bulk and fibre content aids weight control by helping you feel full on fewer calories.

Chose healthy carbohydrates from whole grains, fruit, root vegetables and dry beans.

Proteins

Proteins play many critical roles in the body, and they help repair and strengthen the tissues in the body

Meat, fish, seafood, eggs, dairy products, dry beans and bean products are good sources of protein. Wheatgrass juice is full of amino acids. The reason we need proteins is to gain the amino acids which we get from digesting the protein.

Our amazing outdoor grown organic live wheatgrass juice contains 20 out of the 24 amino acids that our body needs to function. This contributes to it being a whole food meaning that it can actually feed our body by itself which we think is fantastic!

Fats

Fat intake and how much fat your body stores can influence your metabolism. It can affect your mood and eating small amounts can actually help you lose weight faster as you won’t feel deprived. Fats are also responsible for making up part of our body cells and transporting fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E and K.

Chose healthy fats such as avocado, nuts and fatty fish. 

Vitamins

There are many kinds of vitamins from various food groups, and they participate in different body metabolism such as maintaining healthy skin and hair, building bones and releasing and utilising energy from foods.  Our organic wheatgrass juice contains 50% of the RDA (recommended daily amount) of vitamin A, 95.7% vitamin B,1600% vitamin B12 and 145% vitamin E. 

Minerals

Minerals are a group of essential nutrients which regulate many body functions. Including building strong bones and teeth, controlling body fluids inside and outside cells and turning the food you eat into energy

Our organic field grown wheatgrass juice contains 92 minerals (out of the 102 we need)

Dietary fibre

Helps stabilise blood sugar, promote gastrointestinal health and prevent constipation. Leafy green vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet as they're packed with vitamins, minerals and fibre but low in calories. Generally speaking, the darker the colour, the higher the fibre content.

Water

We know that water is essential to our health: after all, the body is made up of 60% water, with the brain being almost 75% water. Each cell relies on water to be able to function at optimum levels. We know that not being hydrated properly will lead to low energy levels, digestion problems, dry skin and headaches

 

Although each nutrient performs different functions in our body, they all work together and contribute to our good health, so it’s important to maintain them all as you lose weight.
