    Thanks for all of the useful research info. Needless to say I'm overwhelmed, which isn't surprising since I'm 38 years old and still fighting acne. So do you think a supplement rich in linoleic acid such as borage seed oil might be helpful?

    First of all, I want to thank you for taking the time to share your experiences (and success) with us. I have a question regarding the glycemic load of sweet potatoes, which is the vegetable you recommend the most. I've known for some time that if I maintain a low glycemic load diet, my skin looks a lot better. Existing blemishes heal faster and sebum production is reduced. Numerous studies have confirmed that a low GL diet (which essentially means eliminating sugar and reducing carbs) is very beneficial for reducing acne. Your regimen syncs well with the concept of a low GL diet, except for the sweet potatoes as well as the bread you consume without worry.

    So why is it that the natural sugars from the sweet potato aren't a problem? You're of course correct that the sweet potato is quite a bad-ass, nutrient dense vegetable, but it does have sugar (7 grams in a medium potato). Do you think the natural sugars aren't of much concern?

    I'm 38 and have suffered from mild acne for 20 years. I know that there's a link between diet and acne for the genetically inferior, such as myself. For me I know that eating low GL helps a lot. Your regimen of introducing juicing makes so much sense, but the addition of veggies such as the sweet potato contradicts some of what I thought I understood about the affect of blood sugar and acne. I'm definitely not trying to troll here, but why is it that natural sugars are OK?
