What is Functional Nutrition vs Weight Loss?

From a scientific point of view, nutrition is a biological process in which men use food to assimilate nutrients and perform their vital functions.

But we know that currently the pleasure of food has replaced basic needs, and together with the sedentary lifestyle on which our society is based, it has brought us a series of complications, one of which is the difficulty in losing weight.

Nutrition focuses on how this type of complications or diseases can be prevented or reduced through a healthy diet where weight loss will be a consequence.

Malnutrition, food allergies and intolerances, or the inability to lose weight are different for each person, hence the importance of consulting a nutritionist and adapting the diet to each person and lifestyle.
