could be that in replacment of the carbs you have added more veggies.  When i eat clean my skin is 100% better. I have exzema and sometimes when i get dehydrated it flares. But when i am eating clean there is no issue. 

Your skin often reflects inner health.  Your body wasn’t digesting the carbs well and released toxins through the skin.  Cutting them out reduced that issue and helped your skin.

My skin improved when I gave up dairy – I stopped eating yogurt and switched to almond milk.   No breakouts.

@MsGinkgo:  When I gave up bread/pasta/gluten, LOTS of good things happened, skin improvements aside. I didn’t have constant upset stomach issues, didn’t hurt physically as much, was less depressed, had more energy, didn’t have fog-brain, etc. The coolest thing was losing about 30 lbs. with zero change in my daily habits (no exercise). It was amazing the things that improved when I dropped gluten from my diet. I’d definitely recommend it for anyone. 🙂

Could it be a gluten allergy if giving up bread and pasta made you feel better?

HAve you ever been tested for gluten allergy/intollerance? This sometimes plays havoc with your skin so could be the reason for it…

Glad to hear that your skin is looking and feeling better. Agreed with PPs. Do the blood work and biopsy to check if you have celiac disease (which I have) or a gluten intolerance. If you do have those things, and you are not treating them by eating a gluten-free diet, you could be doing damage to your body.

No bread? I don’t know if I would be able to go on.

I quit eating gluten for a bit, went back for a bit, and will be quitting again.
It wasn’t my skin that loved me, but my stomach. I felt so healthy and energetic!

BTW, rice and quinoa will be your new friends if you miss carbs, but want to avoid gluten. I love rice, so I’m totally fine with this. 🙂

You know, I got the bloodwork done, but never received a follow-up call on it (the results were delayed a bit, I think everyone forgot about it) Now I have to chase it down, sigh.

@MsGinkgo:  then definitely go for testing. Speak to your doctor about it first, and then he/she can proceed with the next steps.  I first realized something was up when I was getting a stomachache after 1 plate of pasta (it wasn’t a full stomach ache, it was pain). Now that I eat gluten-free, I rarely have any type of stomach aches or pains (unless I overeat of course). Having more information will help you eat a better diet, which will help your digestive system. Trust me, your body will thank you!

 

If you have any questions I’ll be more than happy to help!! Smile

@MsGinkgo:  my digestive system hates me too 🙁

I have given up numerous things over the years with no joy but I have recently been taking a pro-biotic and my tummy is 10000% times better. You should give it a go 🙂
