I recently started eating a lower calorie diet to lose some weight, but I'm worried that I might not be getting enough nutrients. I've heard that it's possible to miss out on important vitamins and minerals when you're cutting back on calories, so I want to make sure that I'm not putting my health at risk.
A little bit of background on me - I've struggled with my weight for a while now, and I've tried a lot of different diets in the past. I've had some success with calorie restriction in the past, but I've always found it difficult to stick to in the long run. This time around, I'm trying to be more mindful about what I'm eating and making sure that I'm still getting all of the nutrients I need.
So far, I've been focusing on eating a lot of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. I'm also taking a multivitamin just to cover my bases. But I'm wondering if there's anything else I should be doing to make sure I'm getting enough nutrients. Are there certain foods that are particularly high in vitamins and minerals that I should be incorporating into my diet? Any other tips or advice would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance for your help.
