Focusing on meeting your nutrient needs can be a daunting task. On top of life demands, it can be hard to meet your daily calorie quota, let alone focusing on getting in enough vitamins, minerals and your macronutrients (proteins, fats and carbohydrates). Is there a sure-fire way to make sure you're making the most bang for your buck when it comes to balancing nutrients and calories?
Your best bet is to make sure to eat a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as lean proteins and healthy oils. If your weight management meal plan includes starches, go for whole or multi-grains (these are packed with vitamins and minerals). Eating a few servings per week of fatty fish, such as sardines or salmon, can aid in meeting your omega-3 quota. A daily multi-vitamin might also help as it can act as an "insurance policy" to make sure you're meeting your needs. *Always check with your primary care provider before starting a multi-vitamin or any other supplement as they aren't always appropriate for everyone.
