We like to practice what we preach here at McLean Dermatology, so I am challenging my entire office to follow a diet low in carbohydrates and free of gluten and processed foods for the next month, and we want you to join us! I will be here to help you along the way with weekly tips, tricks, and support to get you through the month. Why? Because going gluten-free is only half the battle when it comes to “eating clean.” Eating whole, nutrient-dense foods that do not come out of a package is not only great for your skin but also for your overall health!

It may be difficult at first, but adequately preparing yourself for the change will allow for an easier transition.

The key to staying on track is knowing what to reach for and what to avoid:


Diets don’t have to be monotonous either! There is so much you can do with a natural, low carb, gluten-free diet to keep it interesting and fun without taking a step into the “gluten-free” aisle of carbohydrates, preservatives, and other sugars. We will be posting weekly recipes of gluten-free treats we are trying ourselves!

Join us in our challenge! If you do decide go gluten-free, we’d love to hear from you! Send us recipes, photos, or even stop by to let us know how you’re doing. Good luck! I know you can do it! You won’t be disappointed with the results you see in your skin!
