What happens when you don’t eat enough food?

Skipping meals can absolutely have significant effects on your brain and body.
When you skip a meal, your body starts to run low on its immediate glucose supply. Low blood sugar can zap your energy, making you feel sluggish and weak. It can also make it hard to concentrate because your brain doesn’t have the fuel it needs to think straight. Other low blood sugar symptoms can include shakiness, sweatiness, and irritability. Hello, hangriness.
Lunch today:
Spaghetti w/ Meat Sauce, Garden Salad w/ Cherry Tomatoes & Cucumbers Green Beans Garlic Breadstick, Grapes and Milk
