52 days later

I took these today. I still have some red marks left, but they are fading. I've been a vegetarian for 52 days now. I still get a zit on my chin sometimes, but it's a small one and I don't really care!  :)

    monica82 re: your breakfast smothered with butter.
    --
    this is not good for your health. i have been a vegetarian for a dozen years now.

    if you want to eat butter, you should at least switch to smart balance. it is much healthier for you.

    being a vegetarian does not automatically equate to good health. i know many who are overweight, diabetic and suffer from high cholesterol.

    if you are looking for a filling breakfast, you can try tofu srcambles with gimme lean brand sausage and or morning star farms sausage or bacon. when eating cheese, please consider reduced fat varieties. and eliminate whole milk in favor of skim or soy.

    there are many great varieties of un-meats on the market. but you may have to tinker with them to get them to your tasting if you are going to stick w/ the veg diet. i often buy soy burgers and cook them in a frying pan with a small amount of olive oil, cracked sea salt, garlic and cracked pepper or cajun seasoning. i eat them on whole wheat buns with a-1 steak sauce. very tasty. :D

    there are also faux chicken patties by boca and morning star farms. i usually just nuke those for 1.45 and eat them in sandwiches, with pasta, make chicken salad sandwiches (using reduced fat/ lite mayo), etc.

    for dinner, smart life makes GREAT unsteak strips. they are phenominal. i lightly sautee them in a pan with olive oil, sherry wine, fresh garlic, onion, shitaki/ portabello mushrooms and a-1 topped with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.

    for snacks i eat say beans, fresh carrots, celery, fruits, pretzels, etc. i sometimes splurge on raspberry sherbert.

    if you are going to be a veg. it is very important you watch what you eat. even if you don't gain weight, a diet of lots of butter every morning or even a few times a week will make you very ill long term. you need to be sure you are getting enough iron, b complex (6, 12), amino acids, omega 3's etc. but once you figure it all out, it will become second nature. and remember to always check labels, serving sizes, saturated fats, etc.

    I buy lots of bags with frozen vegetables. I cook a bag in the morning and eat them with lots of melted butter. The fat in the butter helps a lot. I don't feel hungry for hours after eating vegetables with melted butter. I might eat oats in the morning sometimes, but not often.

    My skin is still looking great. :D

    I am not an unexperienced vegetarian. I have been one before from age 16-24. I know how to eat healthy. Right now I also eat fish, so I am not really a vegetarian. But staying away from meat keeps my skin clear.
    I had been a vegetarian for four years, more for ethical reasons than anything. It didn't really do anything for my acne though, i was also a vegan for a few months too. Now i'm eating meat again and it hasn't worsen it, though i only eat organic meat. I've known some one that found out that it was actually the hormones in the meat that made their acne worse. so, not saying that you shouldn't be a vegetarian (props to you), but if you ever think about eating meat again, maybe you can try organic.
    OMG your soooo lucky")
    you have totally inspired me to eat absolutely no grains anymore(even though they are kinda my life)
    SO FAR ive eliminated dairy, chocolates, greasy foods(high in table saltz), drive thru, and prepackaged food,..
    I dont really no what to eat anymore
    so im kinda starving my self"(

    Just want to add that I've found out I have rosacea. That's the reason I had acne. :)
