Eating disorders creep up on us sometimes without us realizing it. To keep healthy, we need to be uber conscious of our lifestyle as it is easy to lose (or add weight) without paying attention; being healthy cannot be determined by physical body weight i.e whether you are 'fat' or 'skinny'
To ensure a healthy lifestyle and avoid malnutrition; staying in tip top shape and maintaining a healthy weight, be aware of these signs!
1. Breastbone and Backbones are prominent
If your breast and back bones are prominent/you look frail then it is time to add some pounds/ increase your calorie intake. This is one of the common signs of malnutrition.
2. Constant Fatigue
When you get tired and irritated after a short task, then you should probably check your diet if you have no health problems
3. Your Nails Are Breaking
