In a nutshell:
Whatever the reason is, let’s be super frank: The things that happen to your body when you don’t eat enough are honestly really bad. Sometimes, these diets and trends can be misinterpreted or contain inappropriate nutritional advice, which can lead to undereating. The nutrients from the food we put in our bodies give our cells the ability to perform their necessary functions. By depriving our bodies of the nourishment it needs can lead to poor nutrition and eating habits which can cause obesity, diabetes, and increase certain risk factors for stroke, heart disease, and cancer. Poor nutrition is caused by putting the wrong types of food in your body that do not have the nutrients that we need most. While many of the packaged foods we purchase at the grocery store meet our taste bud requirements, the way these are packaged and stored may strip the food of the nutrients our body requires and eliminate your chance of healthy weight loss. If you are taking in more calories than you are burning each day, even if these are the “right” foods, can eventually cause weight gain and lead to obesity. On the other hand, if you are undereating you could be depriving your body of the nutrients it needs. If you are concerned about the number of calories you are putting in your body it is best to discuss with your doctor or nutrition and dietetics expert. A body gets its energy from the calories in the food and drinks a person consumes. The number of calories needed to maintain a healthy weight will vary from person to person and depends on a variety of factors, such as body size, metabolism, and physical activity levels. When someone is undereating, they are consuming fewer calories than their body needs to function correctly. This can have a severe impact on energy levels, causing feelings of physical tiredness and mental fatigue, which may impair a person’s daily functioning. This can mean that a person’s body does not receive enough of specific nutrients to maintain a healthy immune system and fight off illnesses. Maintaining a healthful nutritional intake is particularly important for people who already have a weakened immune system, such as young children or older adults. Undereating can cause hair loss if nutritional intake is not sufficient. When a person’s body is not receiving enough nutrition, it prioritizes which processes to focus on maintaining, such as the life-supporting processes of breathing and blood circulation. People require a sufficient level of calories to maintain a healthy body temperature. Consuming too few calories may cause a person’s core body temperature to drop, which can create a constant feeling of being cold. Undereating can cause nutritional imbalances that impair certain aspects of development, such as healthy bone growth. If a person’s body does not get a sufficient amount of nutrients, such as vitamin E, it can lead to skin problems. Eating too few calories can also lead to constipation. When a person undereats, their body has less food to convert into stools, which can cause constipation. We’ve all been told that healthy eating can transform your life and help you live a longer and more active one. But what does healthy eating actually mean and how do you start putting this into practice and breaking bad habits? Sure, skipping meals can happen from time to time, but doing it consistently can negatively impact your health and lead to nutritional deficiencies.
