We all know it’s hard to get all nutrients needed for good health through food alone, especially if you are on a diet. Some people try to keep the balance by taking extra vitamin supplements, but this can hide some risks. Researchers advise that some multivitamin pills might exceed the maximum recommended levels from USDA. This may cause some health issues, including cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Nutrition experts from Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston claim that a woman can meet her nutrient needs through food even if she consumes 1500 calories or less, per day. They suggest concentrating on quality rather than quantity and try eating more nutrient-dense foods (foods with many nutrients and few calories). We’ve listed the top 5 nutrient-dense foods you should take advantage of:
 

1. Avocados
Avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and microelements, including 4% of the recommended daily need for Vitamins E, C, potassium and fiber.

2. Low-fat yogurt
One of the key factors to maintaining strong bones is taking enough calcium and Vitamin D. Low-fat yogurt is a perfect choice and also a good source of Vitamin A, magnesium and proteins.
