Make no mistake. Most diets currently on the market work. If they didn't work, those diet books on the shelves would've been pulled a long time ago. There would've been so many law suits, it would make your head spin.
Everyone has heard the term "you are what you eat", but it's never been more important than it is today. Your body needs vitamins and minerals to function, and if you're not getting them you won't be able to perform your best. Ideally you would get all of your daily recommended vitamins from food. However, that's not always possible. In today's frenetic environment it can be hard to get high quality, unprocessed foods. Many people take nutritional supplements to ensure they get their essential daily vitamins, but it can be hard to choose the right one with so many options. Fortunately, there are guidelines to help you choose a supplement that would work best for you.

Not just for my own reflective purposes, but in case this account helps anyone else who is thinking of cutting either of these things out of their lives for a while to decide whether they want to or not.
This story begins two days ago. It was a Tuesday morning and I was up and into the office early, and not being a morning person on the best of days I'll be honest and say the 6am alarm had not been my friend. I also already thought it was Wednesday, which didn't help my mood in the slightest. The day was grey and wet and horribly cold, the epitome of a typical English winter day. The morning in the office had rushed by in a series of meetings including one placed right over lunch time that of course overran, so by the time I got back to my desk and thought about food at 1:20pm I was quite frankly ready to gnaw my own arm off.
