Now for some important warningsNow for some important warnings is this weeks reading from Becoming Slender For Life. Anytime you begin a dietary change or exercise program, you should seek guidance from the appropriate healthcare professional. Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis clients know that I do not sell or promote nutritional supplements. If you have questions or concerns about vitamins and other supplements, please consult your healthcare provider and read the articles about supplements written by Dr. John McDougall.

Now for some important warnings

For optimum diet and nutrition, the American Dietetic Association advises all vegetarians and vegans to consult a registered dietitian or other qualified nutrition professional, especially during periods of growth, breast-feeding, pregnancy, or recovery from illness. Dietary guidelines for Americans recommend that those who choose foods of only plant origin must supplement their diet with vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium, iron and zinc. Adequate intake of these nutrients is even more important for growing children and pregnant and lactating women.

That said, after taking supplements for years, I have stopped. It seems to me that the plant based foods were created correctly. And as humans, we lived a long time without supplements. To make a profit, manufacturers isolate out and concentrate nutrients, like vitamins and minerals, and sell them as expensive pills. The consequence is, taking vitamins can create serious imbalances within the workings of your cells, and then diseases follow (including more cancer, heart disease and earlier death). The only supplement I routinely take is vitamin B12. You will have to decide what is best for you and your body.

Dr. John McDougall says that “If you follow a starch-centered diet strictly for more than three years, or if you are pregnant or nursing, then take a minimum of 5 micrograms (mcg) supplemental vitamin B12 each day.

There are several reasons that I do not promote or sell nutritional supplements. Among my reasons is that I believe such recommendations to be outside my scope of practice. Another reason is that as your weight loss coach, I do not want to detract from your experience.

Weight loss hypnosis can help you to adhere to healthy lifestyle changes like healthy eating and exercise routines.
