  1. Better Grains and grain substitutes

    For grain substitutes, I only really eat these: - steamed quinoa - sprouted wheat bread - spaghetti squash
  2. the thing is, not all fruits and vegetables are create equal (and they don't affect acne equally either) so just saying, "eat fruits and vegetables" is not nearly specific enough. For example, I would not recommend high gi foods like potatoes, pumpkin, watermelon, banana, etc...
  3. yeah, fish oil pills are so fake. I noticed that I don't feel better when I take them as well... However, without some kind of preservative the fish oil would go rancid very quickly. I've been drinking raw, unpasteurized milk ( and seem to be ok with it (milk is still high iodine though so I can't go crazy with it).
  4. Hey all, I'm wondering if there is any type of website or mobile app that helps with tracking what foods break me out and what are ok to eat. Fodmaps, low-sugar, low GI, low iodine, etc... There's a ton of dietary factors that affect acne (for me at least), and it would be cool if there was some online platform that could take all of these things into consideration. I'm actually a web developer and thought this would be a cool project. I was thinking about making something like this, but I wanted to first see if it existed already and if people would be interested in using something like that.
  5. Iodine = Iodeath?

    Hey all, I have noticed in the past that when I "OD" on iodine-containing foods I get really bad, painful pimples. The thing is that I forget sometimes to watch out for how much iodine I'm really eating (I seem to like all the high-iodine foods). This past weekend I caught myself (a little too late though) eating a perfect storm of iodine foods (salmon, turkey breast, raw milk, cranberries, applegate farms "shoulder bacon"...). Man, I must have been getting 300+ mcg of iodine per day! (Recommended dose is 150) I've since cut out fish and cranberries. That seems to be helping. Another thing I read is that brassica family vegetables like broccoli are goitrogens which means they inhibit the absorbing of iodine. I'm going to start eating a handful of broccoli florets 2-3 times a day to see if that helps at all with my iodine sensitivity. Has anyone else experimented with this?
  6. Weird. I tried to take sport research organic Pasteur raised bovine hide pure gelatin peptides, but every time I get huge painful cysts within 2 hours after taking it.
  7. Can't figure out right diet?!

    Your problem is that your "safe foods" are giving you acne. The soybean cooking oil alone in USA means you pretty much can't eat at any cooked food at a restaurant in the USA without breaking out. Don't trust any ingredient for anything that isn't a plant or pure meat. lol Also, low glycemic index + low fodmap may help you Maybe try this: Pure spring water red bell peppers quinoa Radishes Wild-caught fish Pork shoulder Lettuce Sprouted pumpkin seeds Sprouted wheat bread Turmeric Cumin Eggplant Cherry / grape tomatoes Arugula Spaghetti squash Zucchini vodka avocado oil extra virgin olive oil
  8. I went to a derm who said not to put coconut oil on your skin because it is comedogenic. As far as eating it, I noticed that it makes me break out slightly and all other spots more red and inflamed, so I must avoid it. Now I only cook with avocado oil and use ev olive oil for dressing.
