Due to the stresses of everyday life, being on top of good nutrition becomes quite difficult.

As a result, following bad nutritional choices, your body will try to send you signals. However most of us are unaware of these signals of bad nutrition, so we go on continuing to think this is the right way to live.

Once you discover these symptoms of poor nutrition, you can assess your well being and make vital changes in your diet.

Take this quiz and “discover” what your loophole in nutrition is.

Understanding the Numbers

A healthy score total would be 33 and under.  Anything over, and you may potentially be affected by certain factors that can stall your overall health/wellness, and weight.

The Zones in the quiz represents areas in the body system.

ZONE 1 & 2 –  Blood Sugar Levels – The amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood.

ZONE 3 & 4 –  Cortisol – The “stress” hormone,  high levels can throw your body out of whack.

ZONE 5, 6, & 7 –  Digestive Tract System – This is the system through which food passes, in which digestion takes place, and from which wastes are eliminated.

ZONE 8 –  Thyroid –  The thyroid gland produces hormones that influence almost all of the metabolic processes in your body.

ZONE 9, 10, & 11 –  Sex Hormones – Hormones, such as estrogen or testosterone, affecting sexual development or reproduction.

ZONE 12 –  Oxygen Delivery – The amount of oxygen ‘delivered’ to your body by your lungs and cardiovascular system.

ZONE 13 –  Nutrient Delivery System – The system that delivers nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body.

If you scored 4 or more points in the any of the body systems above, these could be areas that are potentially stalling your overall ability to lose weight, feel energized, and be healthy.

What can I be doing wrong???

Here’s the problem, most or our diets might not be helping us as we would have expected.  Instead, most fad diets do not lead to long-term lifestyle changes.

Signs and symptoms of poor nutrition may not appear overnight, but they will become quite obvious, if not taken care of.  Once you discover a few symptoms of poor nutrition, it will be easy for you to assess your well being and make permanent changes.

Signs and symptoms of poor nutrition may not appear overnight, but they will become quite obvious, if not taken care of.

How can I get started???

If your body is telling you that it needs some nutritional attention, Advocare’s 24 Day Jumpstart, a part of the expanded ONE/80 Day Program, is the foundation for cleansing and preparing your body for better nutrition. This 24-Day Challenge can be rewarding when completed on its own, or used to start the full 😯 day regimen.

First of all, this is not a weight loss program. No fad diets or magic potions. In its simplest form, it is about providing your body with proper nutrition and eating a healthy diet. By feeding your body properly, the weight will take care of itself.

The 24-Day Jumpstart, is designed to fuel a fresh start and help set you on the path to a healthy lifestyle. You will begin with a 10-day Cleanse Phase to help prepare your body for optimal nutrition, then complete the 14-Day Max Phase where you will start to develop a routine of fueling your body with quality supplementation and a healthy, balanced diet.

jumpstart

Parts 2 and 3, called Optimize and Lifestyle respectively, build upon what you’ve learned during the 24-Day Jumpstart to help you continue to work towards your goals and ensure you experience a true transformation towards a long-term, sustainable routine.

Speaking from personal experience coaching others through the 24-Day Jumpstart versus the Advocare ONE/80 Program, healthy habits can be tough to build as distractions can often lead us back into our old ways. When you decide you are ready to commit to a long-term change, I highly recommend this 80-Day Program for sustainable success
