Add these nutrients to your diet for better weight loss.

Important Nutrients For Weight Loss

When it comes to weight loss, it isn’t just about exercising as much as you can or ‘dieting’. You also want to focus on proper nutrition, which includes the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that help you live a healthier life, while also burning fat. Here are some of the top nutrients to add to your diet.

Gluten Free Whole Grains

The first type of nutrient you should add to your diet if you want to start losing more weight is gluten free whole grains. These are recommended for many different types of diets, even some low-carb diets. Whole gluten free grains are good for you, not heavily processed, and contain a lot of important nutrients like a high amount of fiber. You definitely want more fiber in your diet if you are going to burn more fat and calories. Some good sources of gluten free whole grains and high fiber are wild and brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, farrow, millet sorghum and teff.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is important when you are getting healthy and losing weight. It’s also important for a strong immune system.  This nutrient helps to burn more fat by building muscle mass and helping to protect your muscles and bones as you age. You can absorb Vitamin D from the sun, or by taking supplements.   Vitamin D can also be found in pastured eggs, fish oil, salmon, sardines, tuna, sunflower seeds, and shitake mushrooms, so those foods are great to add to your regular diet.


Another nutrient you can try to get more of and burn fat at the same time is iron. Iron is often found in lean protein, vegetables, and lentils. Many people know that if they have more turkey and lean cuts of beef, they will get plenty of iron and protein at the same time, but they often forget about their lentils and veggies. Some good sources of iron include leafy greens like spinach and kale, plus your different lentils. Both of these together can be added to a low-fat chili or soup recipe, which is filling and is loaded with essential nutrients.

Start thinking of ways to add these types of foods to your diet.  From making a vegetable and lentil soup for a light and filling dinner, to having more smoothies or dairy free yogurt with fruit as a healthy snack. As long as you know what to add, it is easy to have a healthy diet that also helps you to burn more fat.
