We have all done it. We have all tried to eat healthy. There is just one problem – we can never keep it up! Well, at least I have never been able to keep it up. However, this summer I changed how I ate and I have actually stuck with it for quite a while now.
I changed my eating habits when I went to the dermatologist and she told me that what you eat really does influence your skin. She gave me a list of foods to avoid and then she told me to watch Food Inc.
If you have not seen Food Inc. then I highly suggest you do! It has definitely changed my life.The diet that my doctor put me on is not only for my skin, but for my overall well-being. And let me tell you…once I began this diet, I instantly felt so much better at the end of every day!
My diet consists of:
- Red Meat
- Chicken (unless organic)
What I can eat:
- Fish (wild, not farm raised)
- Whole Wheat
Like I said before, since following this diet plan, I feel so much better all day long!
My favorite healthy snacks include:
- Hummus & pita chips
- Apple & Nutella
- Carrots & Italian vinaigrette dressing
Of course there are times where you need to cheat a little and have that warm chocolate chip cookie, but hey, it’s ok! Just make sure to keep things in moderation!
Since beginning this diet, and sticking with it, I have seen a dramatic difference in my skin. If I have a pimple, it is because I cheated a little and gave into that Chick-Fil-A or ate that taco with sour cream.
It may be hard at first, but trust, me – it is well worth it. Your skin & your body will thank you.
