On the dock there were the chocolate, dairy products, sugars and finally peanuts. The indictment: to be guilty of very high treason against our body. The evidence, in addition to the cellulite and some extra kilo, pimples. The possibility that they are innocent almost nothing, on the other hand is a court-proof truth (and philosophy) the theorem according to which what we eat affects our health. Leaving out the joke on meat and the consequent victory of those who have long adopted a regime vegetarian, it must be said that yes some foods are rich in toxins which, in the long run, make us pay the bill. The exchange currency is summarized in four letters: acne. Here because Byrdie interviewed the founder of Top Balance Food to understand how to stem the problem and start doing it at the table. Ok, nobody forbids to take a marathon of Netflix’n’junky food, but it is important to know which diet has a “Topexan” effect and which one does not. The first tip: drink a lot of water.

Now let’s try to find some alternatives to build seven days of dieting and say so bye bye acne.
