The "healthier" i eat and live, the worse i look and feel. Well my skin anyway. When i was younger, more scrawny, ate all kinds of shit, drank far too much and took God knows what - generally misabused the crap out of my body, my skin was great.
Health, diet and nutrition may be many things but they are simple. No matter what some people may think, there is still so much to learn. [One minute saturated fat is the devil, the next minute everyone is saying it was wrongly accused. Eat "healthy" whole grains - wait a second grains are actually poisonous, etc etc etc etc.]
The more i fail to respond to all these wonderful "natural" super duper healthy diets the more i see myself considering more left-field stuff like that of Ray Peat etc - even if there is a massive cultish thing going on with just about anything linked to diet or nutrition.
I actually think being obese is a sign that somebody has/had nice and healthy genetics but as with most things in life, living to excess catches up with us all. Obviously being really overweight stresses the body but the connection between cause and effect isn't always as simple as it may seem.
