6 Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Fat in Your Diet.


Enough Fat in Your Diet.

As the saying goes, “it doesn't take too much”, but too little of certain nutrients or food groups can also be bad for your health.


Take fat for example; your body, and especially your organs, need a certain daily intake to function properly. So if you're on the fat-free diet bandwagon, consider incorporating at least some healthy fats into your diet in the form of fatty fish, nuts, olive oil, avocados, nut butter, or others, to make sure your body is getting enough fat.


The following 6 signs indicate that you need more fat in your diet…

6 Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Fat in Your Diet.

1. You have trouble concentrating

If you're proud of cutting fat from your high-carb, high-protein diet, you might be unable to concentrate because you're constantly hungry. There are twice as many calories in fat as there are in carbohydrates and protein, and if you eliminate all fat from your diet, you might not be getting enough calories in your daily diet.

2. You are constantly hungry

We introduced this concept earlier; fat helps keep you fuller for longer, which means if you eat good fats (Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids) at every meal, they will take longer to digest (compared to protein and carbohydrates) and will keep you satisfied until your next meal.

3. Crowds make you anxious

Research done by the American Psychological Association on mice reveals that rodents that do not consume enough Omega-3 fatty acids and are exposed to noise become more fearful in a crowd. On the contrary, mice that consume adequate amounts of Omega-3 remain calm in a crowded environment rich in sensory stimuli.

4. Your memory is failing

Research from the University of Alabama, Birmingham (UAB), reveals that older adults who eat high-fat diets (nuts, avocados, poisons, olive oil) protect their memory and cognitive functions up to a much older age. So if you suffer from memory loss, consume a Mediterranean diet to improve and protect your memory.

5. mood

Epidemiological research shows that a dietary imbalance can greatly affect mood, leading to blues and depression. For example, a low intake of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids can lead to hormonal and mood fluctuations (anxiety, irritability, and increased depression). Consume enough healthy fats each week, and especially 2-3 servings of oily fish, to reduce the risk of depression and balance mood.

6. Your dynamism is gone

If your weight is within the norm and you consider yourself to be in good physical shape, research published by the National Institutes of Health indicates that a lack of drive and energy after a brief period of exercise may indicate that you are not consuming enough fat. During physical exertion, the body uses energy from carbohydrates first, then turns to fat stores.
