Humans are true omnivores, and ongoing research continues to show that they have evolved to thrive on a vast variety of different foods. However, today’s modern food supply allows many to subsist on unhealthy processed items instead of whole foods packed with the nutrients needed. The human body isn’t evolved to thrive on a diet of pizza, soda, and similar foods that should only be served as occasional treats. Even if a diet seems well balanced and healthy, it is easy to accidentally add hidden sugars and starches that cause weight gain as opposed to weight loss. Many adults and children also struggle with nutrient deficiencies despite the wide variety of foods available. Investing in a professional nutritional assessment is the best way to check your current diet and adjust it before serious problems develop.
What Are The Signs Of Dietary Issues?
Eating the wrong foods on a daily basis can be the cause of serious health problems, particularly if this imbalance continues for many years. Some of the most common signs of an improper diet include:

Low grade aches and pains with no other cause

We also offer complete blood testing to identify deficiencies in crucial nutrients like iron, Vitamin B12, and calcium. If honest and full disclosure of food consumption during the tracking phase, culprits in your diet can quickly be pinpointed and recommendations can be made to fill in nutrient gaps.
However, a nutritional assessment at Svelte Pro includes more than just a few quick tests. We also ask about your pre-existing conditions and medications because these can both block the absorption of crucial minerals and nutrients. If you are taking a drug that keeps your body from absorbing calcium from food, you may need immediate supplementation to prevent serious health problems from developing. Our dietary plans are tailored to your exact needs and include both whole food sources and supplements.
