Food, Sex, and Attractiveness
Part 2: The Roles of Skin (Color, Oiliness, and Acne) and Body Odor

Excellent health is attractive. Our appearance to others is within our control and largely dependent upon the food choices we make. Last month's newsletter (Part 1: The Role of Body Weight; November 2015) focused on the role of body fatness in attractiveness. The rest of the picture of health involves the appearance of our skin and the odor of our body.

Featured Recipes

This month's recipes were contributed by Emma Roche, a budget-and-health conscious cook who is certified in plant-based nutrition. Since starting in 2013, Emma has been working on recipes and articles to help show others that healthy eating can be both flavourful and affordable.

The following recipes are from Emma's recently released eBook, Whole Food Plant Based on $5 a Day . The eBook is currently being used by Dr. Craig McDougall and his team at ZOOM+Prime, a primary health care facility established in 2015 as part of the ZOOM+ Health Insurance system.


Dr. McDougall Recommends

In her book Thin Diabetes, Fat Diabetes, Laurie Endicott Thomas covers the spectrum of diabetes from its ancient history to the latest developments of genetic engineering, and explains why people with all forms of diabetes mellitus need to eat the McDougall Diet.

If you have thin diabetes (type 1), it means that your pancreas no longer makes enough insulin to keep you alive. If you have fat diabetes (type 2), you produce plenty of insulin, but your body has developed resistance to this hormone. This resistance is reversed by losing weight and by eating a diet based heavily on starchy staples, such as rice, corn, or potatoes. The same healthy diet will help prevent the development of complications, and even reverse some of the underlying diseases, that commonly accompany both forms of diabetes. (Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured, but type 2 diabetes is curable.)
