5 signs you’re not eating enough
Yes you need to be in a calorie deficit to lose weight but that doesn’t mean you should stop or drastically reduce your calorie intake. Find out if you’re not consuming enough calories in this article.
1.You’re sick regularly
According to a dietitian, Lisa Moskovitz, “eating too little means you’re not getting key immune-building nutrients like vitamin C, zinc, vitamin D and probiotics. It can negatively affect the immune system and stress out the body”.
2.You’re constantly hungry
When you’re new to a certain diet, especially a low calorie diet, feeling hungry is absolutely normal. However, if you’re not new to the diet, then it’s not a good sign. You might not be getting enough nutrients for your body to function properly.
3.You feel dizzy
Not getting enough nutrients can also affect your blood sugar level. It could also be a result of dehydration. When you don’t drink enough water, your blood volume decreases, causing a decline in blood pressure. Blood doesn’t reach your brain efficiently thus leaving you feeling dizzy.
4.Poor performance in the gym
Well, if you sum up all our points so far, you will know that you won’t be able to function at your best at the gym. So don’t starve and eat right.
5.You’re not losing weight
Isn’t losing weight your main goal here? Not eating enough can cause your body to go into survival mode. Your body will burn fewer calories to preserve energy as it thinks that you’re in a state of starvation.
