A simple question that can leave you scratching your head because you don’t know where to go next.
The amount of information available can make it seem overwhelming but it doesn’t need to be.
I’m going to help you find your starting point so you can get moving without all the confusion or the need to overhaul your life.
To begin with you’re going to look at what’s missing from your current diet.
As much as you’d like to ignore the fact, there will be nutritional deficiencies.
The solution is not to take extreme measures, like going on a diet or ditching carbs.
A simpler approach is to assess what you’re lacking.
The most common nutritional deficiencies are:

Vitamins and minerals
We’re not talking a complete dietary overhaul but a focus on simple strategies that balance out your diet so that you get:
-A little more protein
-Sufficient vitamins and minerals
-The right amount of healthy fats
