Which is why today is about explaining how, and why, to moderate your diet.
It might be tough to give up some of your favorite treats, but if you want to improve your skin, you need to learn to moderate your intake of the "Big Four" in your diet: dairy, gluten, refined sugars, and excessive salt. As Dr. Geyer explains, "For many people, the ingredients listed above can have a significant impact on inflammation and their skin's fluid balances. This can translate into skin that appears blotchy, red, broken out and puffy."
You also want to keep in mind when you're eating. Have your bigger meals earlier in the day to give yourself fuel when you need it, rather than creating insulin surges and spikes at night, which can lead to inflammation.
You can do this. Let's go!
WHAT TO DO TODAY
Challenge yourself to eat fresh meals that are low in the Big 4.
Incorporate leafy greens, fish, unsalted nuts, and fruits into your diet.
Make sure your larger meals are breakfast and lunch, with dinner being the lightest.
WHAT TO DO FROM NOW ON
Focus on a diet rich in anti-oxidants and lower in dairy, sugar, salt, and wheat.
