I'm wondering if anyone can explain the science of this to me. Every time I eat more than a little bit of good fats my skin breaks out in cysts on my chin. I'm not prone to cystic acne and this is the only time this happens to me.
Good fats that cause cysts include:
Bone broth soups
I do not get these cysts from bad fats like those from nuts or even worse canola oil etc.
I also don't get them from olive oil or butter.
Can anyone explain this?
Does it have something to do with omega 3 fatty acids?
Is it a healing reaction?
I'm just stumped.
I'll add that I've been vegetarian for the past 11 years and am trying to transition to a more paleo way of eating. I can eat small amounts of meat with no problems but only small amounts and I haven't tried eating fish.
