Daily Nutritional Deficits

Posted by Heather Blake

Aug 30, 2012

Everyone realizes what happens to their body when they go several hours without eating. Well did you know you could still create deficits throughout the day without proper balance of nutritional intake? Every person experiences blood sugar level fluctuations. The proper intake should help sustain the appropriate blood sugar levels, by eating on time and having the correct sources (complex carbohydrates). Everyone’s schedule is different but in general we should eat every 3-4 hours it can be more frequent with the appropriate quantity. Preventing these deficits helps the body function properly and keeps you feeling good. In addition, this is also true for water intake. A steady flow of water intake is necessary throughout the day. This helps prevent dehydration and allows for healthy body function.
