The smell of a person’s breath, for example, can tell you a lot about whether or not they have a good diet. Sweet, fruity smelling breath often signals your ketones are elevated.
The appearance of a person’s skin is a good indicator of health. Uneven coloring and blemishes can be telltale signs of underlying trouble. Blood sugar problems and dehydration can cause red, flaky and/or irritated skin patches.
White spots on the finger nails and toe nails can be an indication of an improper or inadequate diet.
The whites of the eyes can tell you whether or not someone has had a good night’s sleep or if they are fatigued or stressed in some way. The early stages of jaundice can oftentimes be spotted via a subtle yellowing of the eyes.
