What is Overnutrition?
Overnutrition is a condition where an individual consumes more nutrients than they require, leading to an imbalance in their diet and potential negative health outcomes. This can include consuming too many calories, excessive amounts of fat, sugar, or salt, or consuming too little fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Overnutrition can lead to obesity, heart disease, and other chronic conditions.
For example, overnutrition can occur when an individual consumes too many high-calorie foods and drinks, such as fast food, sugary drinks, and processed snacks.
When is it necessary to see a doctor?
Overnutrition can lead to a range of health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. If you are concerned that you may be overeating or consuming an unhealthy diet, it is a good idea to talk to your primary care physician or a registered dietitian. They can help you develop a healthy eating plan and lifestyle habits that promote weight loss and improved overall health.
