diet DOES work for acne, but it's not worth it
Posted 14 August 2004 - 02:46 AM
Think about it: I want my skin to be clear, because I want to feel more confident and go out with friends more. If my friends invite me for pizza, and I don't want to go because I'm on a diet, this is going totally against my purpose.
When I don't eat sugar / greasy foods / meat, I don't have enough energy and I generally feel like crap. I'd rather have a little acne than feel like crap. I'd rather take antibiotics and put creams on my skin every day than feel like crap.
When I eat greasy food, my skin gets more greasy. All I have to do is make sure the oil doesn't get mixed with bacteria, and new zits won't develop. This means antibiotics and BP every day. O yea, and B5 also. Still waiting for it to start working... if it works at all... I think it's bullshit... but maybe... one day... any day now...

Try to just make some better choices with food. Maybe you can't go whole hog, but some better choices will make a difference without making you feel deprived, and I guarantee you will feel healthy and look more attractive.

| If I starve myself and eat just fruits and vegetables, I get no more acne. But if I use medication on a regular basis, it keeps the acne to a minimum. I'd rather have a little acne than starve myself. |
Then bring out the meds!

I say may I never be content,
I say deliver me from Swedish furniture,
I say deliver me from clever arts,
I say deliver me from clear skin and perfect teeth,
I say you have to give up,
I say evolve and let the chips fall where they may.
