Can’t Stop Eating Foods That Give You Breakouts?


How to stop eating foods that give you pimples and breakouts.

In last week’s blog post I talked about 3 Steps To Going Dairy Free For Clear Skin, and so far I’ve received quite a few comments and emails about how you just can’t stop the dairy.

Like it’s impossible.

There’s certain compromises you can make, but that isn’t one of them!

Sometimes it can even feel like an addiction. And perhaps one that you’re just not ready to conquer. At least not yet.

This feels like the story of my life! That relationship many of you have with dairy, is a similar struggle I’ve had with coffee. I’ve gone many long stretches of time without coffee, even years without it, but as soon as I start drinking it again, it feels almost impossible to stop. I go back and forth, back and forth. And for me, coffee is one of the worst things for my skin. It ages my skin and gives me awful breakouts. But the addiction can be so strong, and so real.

When it comes to addictions, there’s even more I’ve struggled with.

I was a heavy smoker for 15 years. Kicking the habit was an unbearable battle. But, I did finally get to the other side, and I have to say, nothing compares to the freedom (and health benefits) of overcoming it. Was it easy? Oh no! But worth it yes. The strange thing was, I was so incredibly miserable being a smoker and knowing what it was doing to me, but at the same time it felt nearly impossible to give up.

Sound familiar?

I was also addicted to bread. Yes, bread. There’s such a thing as an addiction to bread, and I couldn’t imagine a day (or even a meal) without it. But you know what, it’s now been over a decade I stopped eating bread, and I’m not tempted in the slightest. In fact, on occasion when I’m at a dinner party or restaurant, I will eat bread, but I don’t quite like the taste or texture (it kind of tastes like cardboard!). I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s not something I crave. I’ve completely lost all desire for it.

If you are struggling with a food addiction that isn’t good for you or your skin, I want you to check out today’s video below. I have something really important to tell you about that “special” food, and why you struggle to let go of it.
