Until a couple of years ago, I was eating a lot of whole grains and meat alternatives (soy products), thinking that I was being healthy. My skin was really clear back then, but I was also much thinner at the time. But now that I've been in college, I've been gaining college-associated weight. And even though I started eating (low-carb) Paleo, my face is now riddled with acne. I read somewhere that it might have something to do with all the dietary fat which releases hormones? And that made me think it was the diet. But now if I ever indulge in the foods I used to eat (grains, dairy, etc), the acne gets worse almost immediately. So now I'm thinking that body weight has something to do with it. Has anybody experienced this or have any thoughts?
(I drink a lot of coffee now too - I never used to drink it before. Anybody know if this is associated with weight gain/acne?)
