Here’s what happened when she tried LCHF:
I’m reading the success stories on your website and am getting inspired, and thought I’d share mine.
I have always had a lot of trouble with acne, and for someone approaching 40, this is not particularly amusing. Through the years I have seen doctors many times and tried a lot, everything from creams that made my entire face dry up terribly, to pills that would make me suicidal. Pretty crazy when the dermatologist asks you if you have a social network who can pick you up, should you suffer this side effect. Not much made any difference, and when it did, the acne returned after the treatment ended. I have asked the doctors many times if I there was anything I could do to improve my skin by changing what I eat. But they have always said that it doesn’t matter.
About a year ago I heard that LCHF could help, but that wasn’t something any of my doctors told me. So I have tried. Unfortunately, I slip back to my old diet from time to time. But when I stay with LCHF my acne basically heals completely. As soon as I have a relapse into my sugar addiction, my acne comes right back. So I have drawn the conclusion that low-carb is my solution. All I have to do now is to stick to it.
I have to say that I have never eaten so much good food and as varied as I do when I eat LCHF. The fact that I have lost more than 45 lbs. (20 kg) is more of a positive side effect to me.
Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures I want to share. I have never been fond of being in front of the camera. Perhaps this will change soon…
Congratulations to improved skin and weight, Maria! Thank you for sharing your story, hopefully it will inspire others to do what you’ve done.
