When you’re really busy, you’ve probably said, ‘I’ve got way too much on my plate’. But when it comes to your diet, the chances are, you really do have too much on your plate and you probably don’t know much about what’s on it either, which means you almost certainly won’t be getting enough vital nutrients.
We know that consuming a balanced, nutrient-rich diet is actually pretty darn difficult. Like a growing number of people, the convenience of many foods is just too hard to resist. But easy meals, even ones you think are healthy, are often also the ones with too many calories, too much saturated fat, salt, sugar and in particular, too few nutrients, resulting in a nutrient crisis with many harmful effects on your health.
Nutrient Crisis: Facts
1. Many adults lack sufficient amounts of dietary fibre, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and the antioxidant vitamins A (as carotenoids), C, and E.
2. A growing number of people are consuming too many calories and too much saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, sugar, and salt.
3. Overconsumption of foods that are calorie-dense, nutritionally poor, highly processed, and rapidly absorbable can lead to systemic inflammation, reduced insulin sensitivity, and a cluster of metabolic abnormalities, including obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and glucose intolerance (commonly known as metabolic syndrome), affecting about one third of people in virtually all supposedly developed nations.
