@moonbase: What about diary? You did not mention whether its good or bad to eat diary.
Chewing on old diaries isn't particularly good for you, although it's a good source of fiber!
LOL. Sorry for misspelling dairy (english is not my native language).
@moonbase: I am 31 now and had oily, acne prone skin since puberty (13). When I was 16 my acne got worser (moderate acne) and I even had back acne.
I started taking a birth control pill then and took it for 12 years. During that time my skin was much better but still oily and I got a few pimples sometimes (not often).
I stopped taking the b/c pill with 28 and some months later my skin got more oily and I got a few pimples (I would say mild acne). But still not bad.
In May this year (4 month ago) I got a lot of breakouts. In June it was so bad that I had 20 zits at the same time around my chin / neck and got more zits every day. My acne was concentrated on my chin / neck but some weeks later I got also zits on my cheeks. At the moment I have 14-15 zits in my face (everywhere, but mainly in the near of my chin). I have scars and a lot of redmarks.
I have no idea why my acne got so bad 4 months ago. I am still eating the same things like in the past. I eat a lot of veggies, fruits, dairy, rice and bread. I do not eat meat and no fish (since 25 years). Can such a breakout still happen from food intolerances (even though my acne was just mild for the last 2.5 years)?
I started a low carb / anti candida diet 4 weeks ago. I didn't eat any fruits in the last 3 weeks (incorporated papayas one week ago). After 2 weeks my skin got much better. I was so happy and thought that my skin would improve from now on but it lasted only 3 days. I ate cheese fondue on one day (I LOVE cheese) and 2 days later I started to breakout again.
I thought it was maybe coincidence since I am eating cheese every day (I crave cheese). I also drink milk every morning (it is in my muesli). A few days ago I have used goats milk instead of cows milk for the first time in my life. And now my face is totally inflamed. Coincidence?
Today I ate only fruits like you suggested (2 pounds of papayas, 1/4 of a melon, a plum). I was hungry all the day long, and I am missing my cheese.
