Are you getting enough iodine? From sudden weight gain to constant fatigue and even a puffy face, a registered nutritionist reveals the warning signs as he blames 'clean eating' for people's plummeting levels of the nutrient.
Iodine is essential for producing hormones associated with weight control, with studies also revealing sufficient levels of the hormone during pregnancy plays a role in boosting children's IQ and reading abilities.
Despite its importance, recent studies have revealed up to 70 per cent of girls in the UK may be deficient in this nutrient. According to London-based registered nutritionist Rob Hobson, a growing trend to cut out dairy products is likely to blame. Milk is the most concentrated source of iodine and provides up to 40 per cent of a person's intake.
