This is not a health lecture or anything. It’s just that I have been experimenting with various ingredients in my food and trying to see if I can fix my skin myself. One ingredient that seems to make a bit of a difference is sugar. On the days where I have dessert and such – the next few days, my skin doesn’t look too good.
But if I drink plenty of water and eat less sugar, the next few days my skin will look better.
I don’t know if there’s any scientific link to this but I am glad to have found some proof of “you are what you eat” because it is true to a certain extent.
I’m terrified of getting diabetes because my grandmother had it for more than 30 years and although I don’t think it affected her quality of life when she was younger – it certainly did when she was older. I sometimes think if it weren’t for her diabetes, she might still be around. The past two years I’ve been hitting the gym and trying to eat better and such – with hope that I can avoid diabetes. Hopefully I will succeed.
Here’s a nice article on overcoming sugar addiction.
