Don’t forget nutrition when dieting!

Point is, reducing calories makes it easy to reduce our intake of vitamins and minerals. This has two consequences for our body.

  • Our health may suffer
  • Our metabolism and (therefore) our weight loss may slow down.

]]> ]]> Vitamin B12

Also called Cobalamin, Vitamin B12 is one of the most important vitamins in the B-group.

Vitamin B12 Deficiency

People with an increased risk of Vitamin B12 deficiency include: strict vegetarians, women on the pill, heavy drinkers and people on sleeping pills.

Benefits of Vitamin B12


  • Protects against anemia
  • Increases energy
  • Improves brain functions (e.g. memory, concentration, learning)
  • Maintains a healthy nervous system
  • Stabilises menstruation and combats postnatal depression

Food sources of Vitamin B12

Include: Liver. Kidney. Oily fish. Beef. Pork. Lamb. Cheese. Free range eggs. Milk. Fortified cereals and fortified soymilk.

Easy Source of Vitamin B12 for Teenage Vegetarians

If your son or daughter is vegetarian, it’s useful to know that a serving of (eg) Special K breakfast cereal with skimmed milk, provides their entire daily requirement of Vitamin B12.

Recommended daily allowance for Vitamin B12
US RDA: 3mcg
EU RDA: 2mcg

Remember The Importance of a Balanced Diet

If you have been a regular follower of fad diets or diet pills, or if you have regularly lost and regained 30+ pounds of weight (yo-yo dieting), you may already be deficient in vitamins and minerals. This may be why you find it difficult to lose weight, or sustain weight loss in the long term.
