Starchy Tubers
Thursday, September 6th, 2012
As we now know, concentrated starch can lead to promotion of acne and adversely affect insulin metabolism. Potatoes, the most popular starchy tuber is extremely high in concentrated starch.
Starchy tubers are similar to refined cereal grains in many ways, the worst of which being their levels of concentrated starch which leads to high glycemic load carbohydrates. This leads to the promotion of acne and facilitates the continued problem with acne that a significant portion of our population has.
When trying to bring down your acne, we recommend limiting your potato and starchy tuber intake to a minimum or even completely cutting it out of your diet. This, along with the other dietary recommendations, can help your skin heal and get back to a level of normalcy and clearness.
