Today I’m going to cover how to get rid of puffy eyes and dark circles under the eyes. While puffy eyes and dark circles under the eyes could be caused by things like fatigue or even damaged kidneys, these aren’t common causes.

The most common cause of puffy eyes and dark circles under the eyes is hyperinsulinemia. Hyperinsulinemia basically means that you have too much insulin in your blood.

A person with hyperinsulinemia has insulin resistance, which causes the pancreas to produce too much insulin. Insulin resistance is caused by consuming sugar and refined carbs.

If you have insulin resistance, you retain a lot of fluid all over the body, including the eyes. Carbs also cause retention of sodium and a deficiency of potassium.

How to get rid of puffy eyes and dark circles:

1. Stop eating carbs

2. Stop snacking

3. Start doing intermittent fasting

4. Start taking potassium or consume foods high in potassium
