WEIRD Vitamin Problem is Making Us Fat?

Why does dieting have to be so hard?

You practically stave yourself… you work out like a Green Beret… and the scale won’t budge. 

But what if your weight issues aren’t your fault at all?

New research proves that a simple diet deficiency may be FORCING our bodies to pack on pounds.

And correcting it could help you lose weight faster than you ever thought possible. 

Research just presented at the European Society of Endocrinology found that people who carry most of their weight around their belly area also happen to be deficient in one simple vitamin:

Vitamin D.

This was especially true of obese men. 

Although women weren’t off the hook… in ladies, lower levels of vitamin D were tied to higher amounts of liver fat—a dangerous condition that can eventually lead to liver failure.

Ultimately, this study suggests that vitamin D could play a role in the storage and function of abdominal fat.

About 40% of Americans are deficient in vitamin D—and almost the exact same number are obese.

Coincidence?

I wouldn’t wait around to find out. Connections like this one would suggest that anyone with abdominal obesity should strongly consider having their vitamin D levels checked.

Besides this recent connection to abdominal fat, a deficiency in vitamin D has been linked to serious problems including osteoporosis, heart disease, cancer, and autoimmune disorders.

In other words, this is one nutrient you DON’T want to be deficient in.

If you’re going to have your vitamin D levels checked, keep in mind that your serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations should be at least 40 ng/mL. 

If they’re low, the best way to correct them is by spending more time in the sun, and loading up on vitamin-D-rich foods like salmon, sardines, beef liver, oysters, and eggs.

To a brighter day,
