Malnourished & Overweight

A common misperception of overweight individuals is, " If an individual is overweight, they are getting all the daily nutrients they require and then some."

Fact is, many - if not most, overweight individuals are malnourished.   The common diet of an overweight individual comprises of foods that are high in calories and high in fat with little, if any necessary nutrients. When the body doesn't get the vitamins and minerals it requires, it may feel tired, achy, irritable, as if locked in a mental fog.

Even foods that appear to be filled with precious nutrients on the surface may prove deceptive.   When vegetables are fried, boiled to death, or nakified (removal of peeling) they lose a great deal of their powerful nutrients.   Just as body heat destroys and fights infection, heat applied to vegetables destroys precious  vitamins and nutrients.

When the body is depleted of precious nutrients and reaches a malnourished state - which is a highly delicate and fragile state, it may take several months for the nutrients to be replenished.
