As we begin our special series “Your Body In Balance” with Neal Barnard, MD, and “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll, the pair are joined by twin sisters Nina and Randa Nelson, whose struggle with acne led to bouts of depression and took a toll on both the budding entertainers’ careers. During bad flareups, they would shut themselves inside their home and shut out their friends and the outside world. They felt hopeless—until they changed their diets.

On this episode, Dr. Barnard explains why our hormones are affected by food and how the solution to healthier skin might begin at the table.

Their story is just one of many featured in Dr. Barnard’s new book, Your Body In Balance, which will be released Feb. 4.
