Here is a list of 9 indicators that are suggestive of immediate dietary modification!
Our body is reflective of the way we eat. Eating too much junk will never lead to a fit body and healthy skin. So, here are a few subtle signs given by your body that you must immediately attend to and bring about a change in your diet if you wish to lead a healthy life.
Sleeplessness. Caffeine consumption is associated with insomnia, particularly if consumed in excess. Apart from the regular caffeinated beverages such as tea and coffee, caffeine can also be found in aerated beverages, energy drinks, chocolates, mouth fresheners, and sometimes even the decaf coffee. So, be watchful of what you eat in case you have trouble sleeping comfortably at night.
Dry skin. It is quite often that we get too engaged in our day to day work that our diet takes a back seat, particularly water consumption. Our skin requires an ample amount of water to maintain its elasticity and glow. So, try to chug down more fluids, particularly water, in case your skin appears dry and rough.
Persistent tiredness. Foods that are high in carbs, specifically junk and processed foods, may shot up the energy levels quickly but they also drop the blood sugar levels as fast and leaves you feeling sluggish. The excess sugar load also uses a lot of other vital nutrients and depletes your body of nutritional reserves. So, turn to healthier and nutritious meals if you tend to feel low and sleepy all the time.
Frequent urination. Intake of a high sugar diet leads to removal of extra water from the blood vessels to produce urine. If you do not control the sugar intake it can even damage the kidney blood vessels and make blood filtration less efficient.
Bad breath. A low-carb diet results in the metabolism of fats and proteins to provide energy. Fat metabolism is also associated with the release of ketones, which produces bad smell.
Brain fog. If your body is deprived of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants you may find it difficult to concentrate. Also, a high carb diet may negatively affect the brain and lead to brain fog.
Migraine. This problem is mostly triggered by certain foods such as aged cheese, chocolate, red wine, dried fruit, ice cream, and peanut butter.
Frequent indigestion. Your gastrointestinal tract is directly affected by your diet. You must seek a professional advice to bring about a change in your eating habits if you experience any irregularities in bowel movements.
Anxiety. Deficiency of vitamin B12 and magnesium or excessive consumption of caffeine, all can make you feel anxious all the time. Apart from seeking help from a medical professional, you must try to bring about a change in your diet, particularly if you are on a plant based diet and are not able to meet the vitamin B12 requirements.
