Can Eating Too Little Actually Damage Your Metabolism?

Could an inadequate calorie intake be the root cause of your health problems? Find out how to recognize the signs of under-eating.

In our modern society with its seemingly endless supply of fast food and junk food, it seems obvious to most why we’re dealing with an obesity epidemic. Cheap, low quality food surrounds us, and there’s not enough time in the world to exercise away all the excess calories that exist in our food supply.

However, those of us in the Paleo and ancestral health community seem to have a different problem altogether.

This problem is chronic under-eating.

Yes, I said under-eating, not overeating. While most people would find it hard to believe that many of the health problems people experience when going Paleo is from a lack of calories and appropriate macronutrients.

PTs say that they have seen their clients experiencing mysterious, nagging symptoms that suddenly disappeared when we evaluated and corrected their daily food intake.

They have even even seen clients who couldn’t lose weight that were suddenly able to after increasing their food intake. Quite the opposite of the “calories-in-calories-out” mentality!

Could something as simple as under-eating be causing your health problems? Could inadequate food intake be the reason why your Paleo diet suddenly isn’t working for you anymore? Is your “rapid weight loss” diet plan the reason your jeans are getting tighter instead of looser?

Below are the top 8 signs and symptoms PTs see in their clients who are chronically under-eating.

-Their Weight Isn’t Budging

-They Can’t Get Pregnant

-Their Blood Sugar Is On A Roller Coaster

-Their Mood Is Totally Unpredictable

-They Can’t Fall Asleep (Or Stay Asleep)

-They are Chronically Constipated

-They are Always Cold

-They are Losing Hair By The Handful

If you need help figuring out the right calorie intake for you, go to a registered dietician who will help you determine the best diet to keep you feeling and looking your best, without unnecessary restriction or starvation dieting. A dietician will get you started on a diet that’s completely tailored to your individual needs.

Remember, eating too little is just as unhealthy and damaging to your metabolism as eating too much. Find the right amount of food intake that works best for you, and don’t be afraid to experiment with eating more if your health isn’t where you want it to be!
