Let’s talk about the top foods that deplete nutrients. You need to be aware of both sides—foods that provide nutrients and foods that lead to nutrient deficiencies.

Limit or cut out these things that deplete you of nutrients:
1. Raw egg whites
2. Refined sugars
3. Refined grains
4. Alcohol
5. Caffeinated beverages
6. Trypsin inhibitors (soy, grains, beans, nuts, seeds, nightshades)
7. Tannins (tea)
8. Excess calcium or consuming a lot of dairy without enough leafy greens
9. Oxalates (spinach, beet greens, almonds, almond flour, chocolate, Swiss chard, grains, beans)
10. Phosphoric acid (soda)
11. Phytates (cereal)

Consuming these things can deplete you of important nutrients, including:
• Biotin
• Vitamin B1
• Zinc
• Magnesium
• Vitamin C
• Certain amino acids
• Fat-soluble vitamins
• Calcium
• Iron
• Vitamin B3
• Chromium
• Copper
• Manganese
• Vitamin D

These nutrient deficiencies can lead to a myriad of symptoms. One of the most common nutrient deficiencies is magnesium, which has a lot to do with energy production. Learn more about magnesium and energy in my other videos.
