We always hear about cutting down on calories or portion sizes, but are we eating too little? Here are some signs to watch out for telling you to up that calorie count! When you eat too little, your body goes into starvation mode and actually holds on to carbs and fats longer than it normally would, causing weight gain. 1. You feel stressed all the time 2. You have low energy 3. Trouble falling asleep or staying awake 4. Food cravings 5. Hard time waking up 6. Cold hands and feet 7. Poor appetite 8. Low body temperature Even for young girls, the absolute lowest amount of calories you should be eating is 900 calories, and even then your body will be reaching starvation mode. Eat up!
I feel every one of these...but I actually eat a lot, not in big portions but I eat a lot in a day. majority of what I eat are mostly carbs too.
No matter what, I make sure to have a handful of almonds everyday!
@evelyn16j If you're eating too little you're actually just making your body hang onto the fat even more! Eating healthy is the only way to lose weight. If you keep up eating too little, your body's metabolism will slow down making it even harder to ever burn off what you're eating!
@evelyn16j Just don't get too drastic when it comes to calorie content. You have to eat to be healthy!
you're thyroid can also cause cold hands and feet, low energy, sleep problems and low grade fevers.
