Vitamin D is generally lower in those with obesity. There is also research that has linked obesity, heart disease and increased cancer risk with low levels of Vitamin D.
Vitamin D is a necessary nutrient, it’s actually a hormone that your body produces from sunlight, about 15-30 mins a day to get your daily dose.
Vitamin D also does a bunch of other things:
It helps your body absorb calcium.
It supports your immune system. It helps prevent osteoporosis. It is found throughout cells in your body.
Snacking is the BANE of weight loss. Do not do it. Let’s go into why that is real quick.
Your body is designed by nature through millions of years of evolution to STORE FOOD ENERGY when it eats food energy. This is why insulin is released in the blood in response to food.
Insulin is your body’s primary storage hormone.
Surprise, when you snack, you signal to your body to store body fat for later. This is what your body is designed to do. It is nature 101. It is how we could survive in the Wild. It is how you survive at night: because your body uses energy your body has stored to survive.
My favorite way is to utilize a 16/8 fasting/feeding window. I never snack during day, not until I break my first meal.
It’s great: I get to work and focus and not think about food for most of my day. I also never have the urge to snack. I get the urge to eat a meal,, so I do, then I’m done.’
