What Happens If You Don't Eat All 3 Of These Macronutrients?

The most common consequence is that your body will respond to this lack of nutrition by screaming at you in the form of cravings.

 

Unfortunately, it cannot communicate with you in the way that would be most useful. If only we started craving avocados when we were low on healthy fat!

  • Sugar in any form, but especially when mixed with fat (maybe because the fat feels calming)¬†

  • Desserts

  • White flour products
