London: After trying their hands at a slew of slimming-down methods, women have decided to turn into SWANNS – ‘slim women who absorb no nutrients’, in their latest bid to stay slim.A new study has suggested that majority of women are avoiding vitamins and minerals as a part of their low-calorie, low-fat diet chart in a bid to stay trim.Nutritionists, who have named such women as ‘Slim Women Absorbing No Nutrients’ or SWANNS, believe that many are seduced by products marketed as having low fat or sugar, but which often lack nutrients such as iron, vitamin D and calcium.Researchers at Spatone, which produces liquid iron supplements, found many women resort to lettuce salad lunches, which are low in calories and not high in nutrients, with some even skipping meals. “It is possible to look super slim but if you’re not eating the right foods, you’re causing damage on the inside,” the Daily Mail quoted nutritional therapist Fleur Borrelli as saying.
