How can improving my nutrition help with medical weight loss?

Your weight is often a direct reflection of your nutrition. Your body requires macronutrients: carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It also needs micronutrients, like vitamins and minerals. 

Getting high-quality nutrition helps you function in an optimal, energized state. When nutrition is lacking, you may find it hard to function well. 

Your nutrition choices also play a role in maintaining a healthy weight. Poor nutrition can leave you feeling tired or fatigued. It can also negatively affect your immunity, making you more vulnerable to falling ill.
