For years many dermatologists have denied there’s a link between diet and acne. Finally, a study has found that dairy, sugar, and refined carbs DO in fact cause and worsen acne.

Personally, I have found this to be true. If I eat too much sugar, a day or two later my forehead will break out.  As soon as I get myself back on track and limit dessert and go heavy on the fruits, veggies, and fish, my skin improves.

I like this post from Dr. Andrew Weil about how to go about eating less meat. Like me, he doesn’t necessarily advocate going fully vegetarian, but eating meat/dairy less often is good for all of us–it helps you lose weight and lower your cholesterol and cancer risk, among other benefits.

I think many of us eat meat every day simply out of habit–we grew up with some kind of meat as the center of our dinner plate, and so we continue eating that way now. Getting out of that habit is simply a matter of trying things a new way. Once you see how satisfying a good vegetarian meal is, it’s easy to cut down on meat. Take it from a serious steak and burger fan like myself.
