I am very much in favor of the Paleo Diet to get healthy and lose weight. If it is possible for the diet to work too well, then that is exactly what happened in my situation. My goal going into this challenge was to clear up my acne from the inside out – with a better diet. This adult acne issue came up out of nowhere just two summers back. I have been using two different creams for the past two years and I was still not seeing the results I wanted. My dermatologist then prescribed a pill in addition to these creams. The first time I took it, I became nauseous for over an hour. There was not a second time. I knew I had to think of another solution quickly because my wedding was approaching. With a strapless gown, I knew anything other than smooth skin just wouldn’t work. Oh yes, I’m talking about the dreaded back-ne. I tried decreasing my dairy and sugar intake, and I did start to see results. I still wasn’t satisfied; I wanted more drastic results. I could not have any new breakouts and my scarring had to be gone in just under two months. The answer: Paleo!
