Hello and welcome to my regimen!

It's nothing fancy but it works great for me. Read on!


What I eat:
  • The fattiest meat I can get my hands on. Including liver and bone marrow and bone broth. Beef,lamb,chicken and occasional fish like norwegian salmon. Cooked in cast iron pan with beef tallow or steamed or boiled.
  • Vegetables such as green beans, carrot, celery and a few more. Always cooked, never raw. I never eat lettuce or greens. (These are optional and I don't always eat them.)
  • Salt.
  • Water
  • Occasionaly I have a drink, I choose to drink only pure booze like vodka or similar addative free liquor.
What I don't eat
  • Spices
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Grains/legumes
  • Dairy
  • Fruit (On special occasions I may have some fruit)
  • Eggs(I highly recommend these but they give me mild digestive problems so I tend to avoid them)
I eat 3-4 times per day and my meals are the same things all the time maybe 3000 calories each day. I am 181 cm tall and weigh about 73 kg. I lack interest in variation when I eat like this since the diet is so satisfying.

Supplements
  • High vitamin cod liver oil 2-3 tsp.
  • Vitamin D 3000 IU + 2000-3000 from the CLO.
  • Vitamin C 500 mg.
  • Kelp extract containing 2-3 mg iodine.

Other stuff that I do that affects acne
  • I lift some weights a couple of times each week and play some sports now and then.
  • I sleep in near complete darkness and wake up with a dawn simulator. Im not to strict with this and during holidays and weekends my sleep tends to get screwed up.
  • Listen to good music.
  • Relax.
  • Hug mom each day.
  • Play computer games. (important for clear skin and general pwnage skills)
  • Get as much sunlight as possible without burning in the summer and use tanning bed now and then in the winter.

Pictures
The pics are a bit old and there has been even more improvement now.

That's about it I think!

Feel free to ask any questions.

Cheers

They have various irritating substances in them. They are basically concentrated plant toxins. I don't like them much anyway so I avoid them unless there is a special occasion, they don't really break me out but I feel better without them.

"Indeed, that's the whole point of herbology-- you're eating
parts of the plants that the plant doesn't really want eaten (like the
root in potato), and so has probably filled with one sort of mild
toxin or another (think of garlic, onion, turmeric, etc). And in small
quantities, some of these are medicinal. That's the nature of plant
toxins. Nearly anything that is specifically toxic by binding to an
active receptor, is medically useful in smaller doses, as a modulator
for the physiologic function that receptor controls."

"Spices play a major role in keeping the skin, digestive system and immune system healthy. But one should know how to use them, and use them moderately. A little bit of spices in food help digestion, but excessively spicy food may upset digestion. Spices in raw form can be used in getting rid of acne and blemishes left it."

"Spices such as curcumin are known to stimulate the activity of haem oxygenase and other stress proteins (and show potential as anti-cancer agents... Plant toxins, if palatable, are likely to have beneficial effects on our immune system."

Adding to the fact that many spices such as cinnamon, tumeric, and many others have been observed to help with digestion and skin. If you don't like them, that's fine. But they are not bad for you.

And about computer games, depends on what you're playing really. If you get sucked into an MMO or something that will probably not help, and it might detract. If you're playing something like dance dance revolution or halo, then I would assume it might help (reduce stress).
About legumes. I don't think they are bad on a large scale. I avoid peanuts like the plague, but I welcome some others. Peas and kidney beans in my experience are very good and I have found it to be the case in various readings.

I noticed you take HCL with your meals. Since I started doing this about a week ago, I found I could practically anything I wanted, and as long as I took the HCL, I wouldn't have a break out, it's crazy! I can't believe this gold mine sat on top of my fridge for 6 months before I tried it!

Hi Glein!

Looking good.

What video games do you play? Maybe if I have a similar arsenal I would show you what "pwnage" is all about!

Love,

Me

That's cool!

I am way to sensetive to get that effect from HCL but I do think it helps with my digestion.

Haha, I was playing WoW while I typed that.

I've been playing since 04 on alliance. Few months ago I got rid of my account, then a couple of weeks ago I decided to play again starting from scratch...so I rolled a BE Rogue...which I regret because there is a huge negative stigma about BE's for some reason.

I cant play on EU realms if I'm in North America right?

Sorry if you've explained this elsewhere, but why no nuts and seeds? I was thinking that almonds, flax seeds, and sunflower seeds were good sources of omegas and protein?

You're directing me to a blog abuot a "failsafe diet" that excludes antioxidants as a way to disprove countless observations and biological conclusions about the benefits of spices?

I don't eat nuts, either, but mainly just for safe keeping. I know that peanuts are awful for me and most nuts that are sold are rarely raw and have been covered in something to make them taste better. As far as I know, there are a few nuts that might be good for the skin, but I don't know anything about nuts anymore. Stuff like flax seeds and sunflower seeds are probably going to be good. I don't eat them, but not for any reason.

I don't know about almonds because I just don't eat nuts anymore. (I used to eat between 1/3 and 1/2 of a jar of crunchy peanut butter a day last year during football season. My acne was also awful, but I was doing a lot of things wrong. The list of things is too long.)

I can't digest them. smile.gif

They have mostly omega 6 and are a poor source of protein compared to meat. I would probably eat small amounts of them if I could digest them.

Yes. That blog is full of great information about plant toxins and their effects. Spices are basically shit for your skin, especially if you are one of the more sensetive individuals.

Most of the studies on these things don't mean anything in real life. Flavanoids here antioxidants there, the truth is they have never been proven to prevent or cure anything. On the other hand they have been shown to increase astma and allergies including skin disorders.

I don't expect to change your veiws on this one but this is what I believe.

Oh okay, but I've read that peanuts are not true nuts, but are actually legumes.

I totally agree! Computer games should be in every acne cure regimen! MMOs are a staple in mine, the keep my skin so soft and smooth. lolz

Hmm. Does hugging your mother daily help with red marks? tongue.gif

Anyways sorry about the stupidity.
Your regimen sounds good! Just lay off the fatty meats.
