The American Diet Is Even Worse Than You May Think

It’s a stereotype that we often hear, but it’s also very true: Americans aren’t a very healthy group of people. Over one in three people in the United States are considered obese, and there are only eleven countries in the world that have a higher percentage of obese adults than the USA.

What’s even more shocking (and I use that term loosely) is that a new study was recently published by the Mayo Clinic Proceedings that found that less than 3 percent of Americans live a “healthy lifestyle.”

The standard American day has become one that is built on speed and convenience. Most of our days are so busy that we decide to just go through the drive-thrus of fast food restaurants because it’s just easier that way; we don’t have time to exercise because the new episode of Survivor is on tonight, and then it’s time to get some sleep.

Over half of the food that Americans consume is now considered “ultra-processed.” So in addition to not getting much exercise, the food that we eat isn’t doing us any favors for our waistline, either.

Even The “Good” Food Isn’t That Great

Of course, there are still many Americans that are committed to eating healthier, but even if you’re eating all of your fruits and vegetables, you may not be getting all of the nutrients you may think you are.

The fact of the matter is this: the produce in the United States is getting less and less nutritious each year–up to 40% less nutritious than just 50 years ago.

Again, it goes back to the American way of life: we like things big, and we like them fast. So over the years, new varieties of seeds have been ‘created’ that are focused on making the crops bigger, as well as producing a higher yield overall.

This, along with other factors, is believed to have caused vitamin and nutrient levels in our produce to decline in a major way. Even when you make the right food choices and opt for the vegetables instead of the cheeseburger, you now need to eat more of the “good stuff” to get the level of vitamins and nutrients that your body needs.

Supplements Can Help Bridge The Gap

Now more than ever, it’s important to fuel your body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs to keep you healthy. And unfortunately, the American way of life has made it inconvenient for many people to get the fuel it needs–or not enough of it.

It’s effectiveness is backed by over 30 research studies, and using cutting edge technology, minerals are actually broken down to a size that the body can effectively use.

But even if you are committed to eating healthier in this hustle and bustle society, you may still not be getting all the nutrients your body needs. EMPowerPlus will help you bridge that gap, and get you on a path to better health.
