THE BRAIN - PART 2

When we enter severe and dangerously low caloric deficits, whether knowingly or unknowingly; we endanger our brains.

For those unfortunate enough to experience sever degrees of malnourishment can attest - our body starts to shut down.

When we don’t have enough calories for our bodies to function our brains priority is to keep us alive and therefore it will make choices on our behalf as to how to do that.

This can include but is not limited to slowing down our digestion and in some cases complete inability to control the muscles in our digestive tract leading to unwanted accidents.

This might seem like an extreme case however unfortunately it is a very real possibility when we don’t take our bodies nutritional requirements seriously.
