We all know that eating well is important for our physical health, but it’s also essential for healthy brain function. Anything that we put into our bodies affects us. Healthy diets bring good results, whereas, unhealthy eating habits (be it undereating, overeating, or just eating poorly) can cause some unwanted side-effects. Undereating may cause fatigue, fainting and dizziness, dehydration, low blood pressure and irregular heart rhythms, not being able to withstand cold, and abnormal blood count…the list goes on and on. Overeating isn’t any better for our bodies. Body pains and difficulties with physical activities, breathing problems, coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure…
Poor nutrition can not only lead to physical health issues, but also emotional problems including negative self-esteem and self-image, depression, anxiety and other mental disorders.
