Sample Acne and Skin Quotes
"AND, MY SKIN has improved 300%. I used to have some brown skin tags on my face and shoulder and a large one on my scalp. Low carb diet has made them FALL off, effortlessly. I also want to THANK GARY TAUBES for all he has written."
"I had frequent heart burn and acid and my skin was very dry and flaky. I started going to the gym and reducing what I ate, but determined after a few weeks that this just was not going to work...I cut out all grain, starches and sugars. I eat at least one meal a day with a couple of eggs cheese and meat, I eat salads and meat, I eat a little vegetables and meat, and by the wedding I had lost 35lbs and dropped over 4 inches on my waist. I never once counted any calories; I would just check labels for sugars or carbs. Since I started on the diet I have not had a Prilosec and have not had any problem with heart burn or acid at all. The flaking of my skin has completely gone."
"Growing up, I had acne worse than any of my friends. They had 'zit farms.' I was a 'zit plantation.' I was prescribed oral Doxycycline and a Retin-A topical treatment. I took this for 8 months, and became to sensitive to the sun that just standing in it for more than 10 minutes meant severe pain, like my skin was on fire...[After the Paleo Solution] My skin is clear. I look and feel GREAT."

"Having struggled on this way for several years, while assuming I would inevitably progress/succumb to the long-term complications of Diabetes, I was lucky enough to be told of Gary Taubes on a Diabetes on-line forum...So, without any set diet plan, I simply cut out all foods that listed more than 1g of carbs per serving. I lost 25lbs in the first 2 months AND for the first time in as long as I could remember I was no longer hungry ALL the time -- as in... as soon as one meal was finished I would be looking for the next. This was a revelation in of itself and more than worth the price of admission. I can now trust my own body to tell me when I need to eat... just like breathing or drinking water!"
"I grew up as an obese child. I never could understand why I was fat and others who ate the same stuff weren't. I was always accused of just eating too much - calories in/out thing. Maybe I did, but that did not explain why I was always hungry - why was there no "appetite off switch?" One time, many years ago, I lost 100 lbs. in a year when I turned 30 on a low calorie semi-starvation type diet. In spite of constant hunger, I remember thinking, "This was easy, how come I hadn't discovered it before?" Then I quit starvation rations (I could only maintain my weight eating green salads) and the lbs. quickly returned about as fast as they came off. Keeping the weight off was impossible! I came to realize it was carbs that I had problems with and reducing them might at least arrest my never ending weight gain. Low carb did just that and enabled me to lose those hundred lbs. again with no hunger albeit over many years time since I was not after quick weight loss. I was after permanent weight loss and good health. Going Paleo for a further 30 lbs. loss was a continuation of my education on nutrition - it was the evolution of my diet to only eat basically nutritious whole foods. I still have some pounds to lose, but I no longer feel like a freak. No one laughs at me anymore, no one makes rude jokes, I can shop in non "plus" sized stores, I feel normal and I feel good! Taubes's "Good Calories Bad Calories" book was also instrumental in my understanding of the causes of my weight problem. It's my favorite all-time book, I read it three times!"
"Since eliminating grains, I have lost 23 more lbs., effortlessly. Since eliminating wheat my cravings have disappeared, night-time snacking no more, hungry less often and for smaller amounts of food. Energy, mental state both far better. This is how I will eat for the rest of my life."

They all seem to follow the same format: "Before I found paleo/low-carb I had tried every diet that exists and I was hungry all the time. Then somehow I stumbled upon Paleo/low-carb and everything made sense, and most importantly I was no longer hungry between meals."
