So, to be completely honest, I thought this video would turn out to be extremely boring, but I guess I really can just talk a lot, even when I'm just at home.
Be sure to check out my Curious page here, and stay tuned for these lessons I'm making! (hint: it's actually a bigger project!)
I realized that if I was going to show you guys what I eat, plenty of you guys would end up asking about why I eat the way I do. That's why my boyfriend Jon was messaging me so much near the beginning of the video... I was asking him if he'd be alright with me telling you guys about his skin. Jon has acute atopic dermatitis, and research is actually still being done to figure out what exactly it is and how to cure it. We are on a diet that takes out all inflammatory foods and puts in plenty of gut-healing foods and supplements. The theory is that Jon's gut is completely wrecked, which is being reflected on his skin.
Turns out, the diet is actually working for me too, since I have had poor digestion for my entire life. I have been noticing that Jon's skin is improving (he has large patches that are completely clear now!!), and he has been noticing that my face is slowly clearing and smoothing out too!
This is a slow journey, one with plenty of highs and lows, but Jon and I have made a promise to each other that we're in this together.
