Day 35-Nutritional Bite

Eat less sugar for healthy skin! Dr. Elson M. Haas writes in his book "Staying Healthy with Nutrition" that drinking excessive amounts of coffee and soda – especially cola – contributes to acne. Most of the heaviest soda drinkers in the United States are teenagers, who simultaneously are being affected by hormones. Both the soda and the hormones result in prevalent skin problems. Acne, a common problem in teenagers, results from a combination of hormone stimulation, production of irritating fatty acids by certain bacteria, stress and poor diet.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
When I'm on a high sugar diet and stressed out, acne seems to appear. Today, I ate bulgar for breakfast with honey and milk. The whole grain was filling. I also feel my skin is more radiant when I am eating grains, fruits, and vegetables!
