Perhaps the biggest reason as to why I pursued a career in nutrition was because I suffered from childhood obesity. I understood the exceptional emotional and self-image distress that obesity can cause in many people. I suffered from bullying, lack of self confidence, poor body image and disordered eating patterns that were associated with my childhood obesity. On the flip side, I also was able to completely overcome my obesity by the time I was a teenager.

That being said, some common deficiencies are vitamin D, magnesium, B vitamins and iron. Inadequate supply of these over time can contribute to detrimental health outcomes so it’s really important to prevent identify if you’re at risk and do you present to prevent this from happening.
