What happens when you eat a poor diet?

The Empress wants to warn you about the risks that come from having a poor diet that lacks the nutrition your body needs.

When you don’t consume enough nutrients, it can leave you feeling very sluggish and weak. You may begin to have a hard time concentrating and remembering things. If that were to happen, it could lead to a lot of frustration. Mainly because not getting proper nourishment increases your levels of irritability.

Not getting the proper nutrition your body needs could also cause muscle weakness. Your bones will also be affected and become weak and much more fragile, which can become quite painful as time goes on.

Even your hair, skin, and fingernails will be affected by the lack of proper nutrients that you’re consuming! Your hair may stop growing or grow only very slowly. Your fingernails will also grow very slowly and will become brittle and break easily. Your skin will seem duller, and any wrinkles that you may have will quickly become more pronounced.

These are all the things that can happen when you don’t feed your body with the proper nutrition it truly needs.
