My n=1 experience supports your claim: for me, as long as I keep my insulin jumps to once a day (and eating whole foods, avoiding toxins ofc.) my skin looks great. I'm never going to count calories or starve myself for anything in the world.. Although I'm sure that if I give up on starches all completely and stick with just low GI fruits I'd look better faster, it's not such a high valued target like it was before. I'm simply no longer stressed by it and rather eat my starches for body building.

I totally agree. I'm 9 months into paleo/primal and after a lot of tweaking and figuring what exactly triggers me (over-consumption of eggs, any consumption of dairy, too many insulin jumps a day, too much alcohol, lack of sleep, not spending enough time out in the sun, using over-drying soaps, stress, hands on face..) my skin is healing and the die-offs bumps period is over.

It's naive to think few months of primal/paleo eating can cure years of SAD eating, but whoever reads this - don't get discouraged - your patience will be rewarded.
