Hi y'all. I've been eating the paleo diet for about a year now. I'm a male age 18
This is what I've discovered recently.
-When I eat fruit, dairy, and carbs my acne returns with a vengeance within a day or two.
-When I eat carbs I gain weight in my abdomen, thighs, and butt (this makes me feel self conscious to be honest). I think i am an enndomorph.
-When I eat low carb, just meats, veges, fat, and a little bit of chocolate both my weight and acne are just where I want them.
I've read that if you are getting acne, your body cannot tolerate something you are eating. But the problem is I am craving chocolate SO HARD when i eat very little carbs. Sometimes I am craving sweet potatoes too which were my main source of carbs in the past.
Thanks for reading this far!
What could all of this mean?
Is it possibly SIBO?
Can some people just not tolerate carbohydrates because of years of damage from the SAD?

Maybe if you could deplete your muscle's glycogen via Something like high intensity training, then that would create a need for muscular insulin sensitivity to replenish the muscle's now depleted glycogen stores and just maybe your fat cells which typically have to be insulin sensitive to protect your body against the glycation damage that would otherwise ensue could now become less insulin sensitive thereby increasing your lean body mass while simultaneously decreasing your bodyfat even with higher carb consumption? I know this might sound like a crazy theory, but i bet it just might work! :)
