Eating less good for acne?

8 posts in this topic

I was in the dentists office and in one of the magazines it said that eating less is not only good for weight loss, but for skin as well. It claimed that with less energy given to disgesting food, the body can focus the energy elsewhere.

Is this legit?

Its not a proven fact, but for some people it probably does work. Not for me though.

I doubt it's true-- skin would probably get pretty bad without the body fixing it.

i dont know about the body 'saving' energy from digeting food.

but if you overeat, you do stress your body. your body can only produce so many bile acids etc, and digestive enzymes to break down the food.

so eating smalller, more frequent portions is a good thing.

Personally I find that the less calories I ingest the worse my skin gets. Often if I miss even a single meal, my skin will flare up a little.

I would have to say yes. Eating less is better, not an option for us sports players.
