It is so common for me to hear people sharing how physically and mentally exhausted they are. As a Nutritionist I feel like I am working front-line within a chronic fatigue epidemic.
Most of the moms who seek out the guidance of a Nutritionist do so for two reasons:
1. They are exhausted all the time.
2. They want to improve body composition.
In order to help these women achieve their goals I have to create a solid foundation in their daily nutrition so that we can ensure their bodies are getting the nutrients they need to function optimally.
Simply put, I am seeing a bunch of undernourished people, who are so depleted, their body is no longer producing enough energy, and it's impacting their quality of life!
Fatigue not only impacts your quality of life, but it also reduces motivation, can significantly decrease productivity and can even harm a relationship!! (Just ask the spouse of a person who is suffering from chronic fatigue)
So what can we do to change it? Well the solution thankfully is often very simple! And it all starts with what you put into your body.
