The Effects of Low Carb On Your Skin

While some people are not at all effected by being on a low carb diet, you have to wonder what happens to others who may actually have an adverse effect to this particular diet. Well for some, it gets bad…very bad. Not in terms of “not losing the weight”, but in what happens “after” the weight is lost. Because of the loss of massive loss of muscle (From poor nutrient ingestion. Especially in the first two weeks) it is incredibly hard to lose the weight and have tight skin to go with it. For some the skin becomes incredibly saggy and this happens even if you have lost an incredible amount of fat. The skin has a hard time holding its elasticity because of the low amount of vitamins and nutrients in the body. Others often have a hard time dealing with very rough and flaky skin. Once again, this is because of the lack of nutrients.
