Nicotine and bad diet was my problem

ASK A FORMER FAT GUY: NEW CLOTHES, OLD SKIN, AND HAVING A SOCIAL LIFE

Did you notice any changes in your skin?

The skin improvements I've seen are probably the most unexpected part of my transformation. I never realized dandruff had anything to do with being overweight. I had tried various shampoos to improve it, but nothing made a big difference. My flakes reduced tremendously after adopting and sticking to clean eating habits. In the end it was my diet -- a far better medicine than any shampoo.

For most of my life I had mild rosacea. I didn't make the connection between nicotine and highly inflammatory foods to the redness in my skin. Once I started eating cleaner, it diminished. After I quit nicotine, it disappeared.

I've never smoked, but I can definitely attest the fact that diet has a huge impact on Rosacea. Improvements were almost immediate when eliminating sugar, starch foods and anything with yeast, such as dinner rolls. Eating clean, unprocessed foods will help!
