Nutritionist Suggests Low-Starch Diet for Better Skin

A holistic nutritionist writing for a major magazine recommends a low-starch diet for good skin, because starches are "difficult to digest."


Let's ignore the idea that something difficult to digest would be somehow bad for one's skin. What's more troubling is that a nutritionist wouldn't know that starches, especially simple ones, are very easy to digest. The enzymes in saliva in our mouths start breaking them down immediately. Also disturbing is that a major, respected magazine would print this misinformation, which is now on the Internet.
