Let's Talk Skin

No, I don't mean on a chicken. I mean the skin on your body. Of course you know that carbohydrates have an affect on your body, but did you ever stop to think about the affects they have on your skin? Sugars, in fact all carbs, can make themselves known in your face. Eating sugars, and other carbohydrates, can cause inflamation in organs of your body. And, for those of you who failed biology and anatomy, your skin is an organ. Therefore, carbs can cause inflamation of your skin. I recently came across an interesting article online about this very issue. Please follow this link, and read the story for yourself. It should make you cut back on the carbs, or at least think twice before grabbing that chocolate...

Very interesting link. Never really connected the two.

I'm currently reading Life Without Bread at your suggestion (I think). I haven't made a complete changeover as of yet. But I'm taking steps in that direction.

That's great. It's tough to make that leap into low-carb, but once you start reaping the benefits, you'll be glad you did. It's interesting to see all of the negatives to a high carbohydrate lifestyle. Baby Steps toward low-carb are better than no steps at all. Keep at it.
