1. Thinning Hair
Thinning of hair is usually to do with less intake of iron. Iron plays an important role in the body as it produces red blood cells which then carries oxygen in the blood. However, lack of iron may lead to thinning of hair. Adding green leafy vegetables and pulses to your diet could possibly help you get rid of this problem.
2. Bad Breath
Bad breath usually occurs through a metabolic process known as ketosis. When our body doesn't have sufficient glucose for energy, it burns stored fats which results in building up of acids known as ketones. People who eat a low-carb diet get ketones on their breath.
Not drinking enough water may lead to constipation. Both fiber and water are important for a healthy bowel movement. Hence, it is always advisable to add wholegrains, nuts and fiber-rich foods in the diet.
4. Cracks At The Corners Of Your Mouth
Cuts and cracks that usually occur at the corners of the mouth are due to the deficiency of iron. Fungal and bacterial infections could also lead to the same. Use your lip balm or petroleum gel to cure it.
5. Bad Skin
Your skin can tell a lot about your health. A poor diet could lead to pimples and acne. White patches on skin could possibly be due to the deficiency of calcium in the body.
So if you're facing any of these problems, then it's time to tweak your diet a bit by adding healthy and nutrient-dense foods to your diet.Disclaimer:
