8 Signs You May Not Being Eating Enough


Are your energy levels low?… when you don’t eat enough calories or the right foods, you’re likely to feel tired most of the time. Calories are units of energy your body uses to function.

 

Hair loss, its normal to lose several strands of hair daily. However, if you’re noticing an increased amount of hair accumulating in your hairbrush or shower drain, it may be a sign that you aren’t eating enough. Hair loss may occur as a result of inadequate intake of calories, protein and certain vitamins and minerals.

 

Constant hunger, being hungry all the time is one of the most obvious signs that you’re not eating enough food. Undereating can cause hormonal shifts that increase hunger in order to compensate for inadequate calories and nutrient intake.

 

Inability to get pregnant, undereating may interfere with a woman’s ability to become pregnant. Consuming too few calories can disrupt reproductive hormone signals, leading to difficulty getting pregnant.

 

Sleep issues, sleep deprivation has been found to lead to insulin resistance and weight gain in dozens of studies. Undereating has been linked to poor quality sleep, including taking longer to fall asleep and spending less time in a deep sleep.

 

Irritability, if little things have begun to set you off, it could be related to not eating enough. Prolonged low calorie intake and restrictive eating patterns have been linked to irritability and moodiness.

 

Constipation, infrequent bowel moments may be related to inadequate calorie intake. Strict dieting and under-eating can lead to constipation, partly due to less waste product to form stool and slower movement of food through the digestive tract.

 

Anxiety, this can link to undereating as well as no movement. Although, dieting itself may lead to moodiness at first, anxiety can occur in response to very low calorie intake. Very low calorie intake, can lead to stress, moodiness and in return lead to anxiety or depression.
