Body Prefers Zinc From Natural Food Sources
It's difficult to beat the zinc content found in popular breakfast cereals but take note that it's an additive.
The human body much prefers obtaining nutrients from natural sources.
However, it's good to know that we can fall back on commercially produced products which help us meet any nutrition deficiency.
And when one is dieting, they are generally at a higher risk for nutritional deficiencies than non-dieters.
Dieters Often Deficient in Essential Vitamins & Minerals
This is because dieters often severely restrict food intake - and calories making it challenging to include all of the recommended essential vitamins and minerals necessary for good health in their eating plan.
Therefore, we recommend supplementing your restricted diet plan with a daily multi-vitamin to ensure optimum health. The last thing one needs when they are trying diligently to lose body fat is to get ill. This will often end a diet plan quite swiftly.
Cereals & Breakfast Foods Containing Zinc
One of the best choices of breakfast cereals is General Mills Kix which contains an impressive 5.23 milligrams per serving.
If you're out and about and drop by a fast food restaurant for your morning meal, a sausage and egg biscuit will provide close to two milligrams of zinc.
Pancakes and bagels come in at around 0.50 milligrams. When we move down to plain or buttermilk biscuits, we see a decrease in our 0.32 milligram reading.
While the sausage, biscuits, eggs, pancakes and bagels are all tasty options, you'll do best by choosing to eat the Kix cereal OR the tasty Cheerios. You'll not only save a lot of calories, but also a lot of potentially harmful saturated and Trans fats which in turn contribute to our cholesterol readings.
