Vitamins, Weight Loss and Nutrition - Which Vitamins Work For Weight Loss Results

(Based on a 2,000 Calorie Intake; for Adults and Children 4 or More Years of Age)

Vitamins are essential to daily life.  

Without vitamins in our daily diet, our bodies would not survive.

When vitamin deficiencies occur in the body, the negative results are mirrored on the skin, the internal organs, the hair and inside the mouth - just to name a few hot spots.

The chart below illustrates just how complicated balancing our vitamin intake can be.

Imagine sitting down and tallying up all the nutrients that are consumed during the day to ensure that you have taken in all the necessary daily values for nutrition.  The task could be quite time consuming.

Although Diet Bites believes that vitamins should come from natural sources, there are circumstances where a daily multi-vitamin can be of great benefit to the body.  And now for our DV chart.

The following chart contains the Daily Nutrition Values based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
