I'm here to discuss Wai Diet, as what I think to be the only efficient and healthful solution to get 100% acne clear forever.
I've been on Wai Diet for 8 months and I am acne clear since week 3.
The diet consists of... you can eat everything except cooked foods, milk/dairy, vegetables, and salt/spices.
You can eat: fruits (raw, can also be juiced or dried), raw egg yolks, raw fish, raw meat (not advocated), nuts, olive oil and other oils, sugar, honey, and a little chives and vinegar.
You may think it's a restrictive diet, but I'd say it's just a new eating paradigm, that happens to be very different from the most popular ones nowadays. In this diet, you still got hundreds of foods to chose from.
Why will this diet keep you cleared up?
Because acne occurs when BOTH this factors occur:
1.) Too much moisture in the skin pinching off sebum canals;
2.) High sebum production.
If you eliminate one of these, you get clear of acne.
However, all the acne treatments that we use nowadays, and that are discussed here, consist on eliminating the second factor, which means decreasing sebum production.
But if the skin does not contain excessive moisture, a high sebum production is not a problem at all. Sebum is essential to keep the skin flexible and young. The more sebum is produced, the more flexible and healthy the skin is. The less sebum is produced, the faster the outer skin cells dehydrate and age.
That's why all the tradicional acne treatments seem so unnecessarily unhealthy to me. They not only dry and irritate your skin, making it become spoiled and aging before time, as some of those treatments can also mess up with your health pretty badly!
(Topical creams are also a bad choice in my opinion since, again, you're just spoiling your skin, as pimples will keep on coming no matter how much of them you burn!)
Instead, you can eliminate factor 1.), which as no health consequences at all. On the reverse: it has many health benefits. And the only way to do it is cutting out the things that cause too much moisture in the skin pinching off sebum canals:
- consuming cooked foods, for it's altered proteins
- consuming raw milk/dairy, for it's hormones
- consuming raw vegetables, for the hard digestion of these by humans (this is the mildest factor in my opinion)
- consuming salt/spices, since these cause high water retention in the skin
- consuming too much proteins, even if raw
- other factors: alcohol consumption, stress, consuming too little fat, hormonal fluctuation, many drugs and medicines.
You can read more about this in the free acne book, just google it!
Try this diet and you will see for yourself! ;-)
Update: We now consider raw organic beef 100% healthy and safe (lots of people eat it - carpaccio, steak tartar, etc). But please never try raw pork or raw game. It has a chance of containing very dangerous parasites. Just like some fish species are not safe to eat raw (the japanese mastered which, wikipedia "sashimi"), only some meat species are safe too, and as far as we know, only beef is, preferentially organic.
Update 2: If you're really afraid of consuming raw animal foods (fish, meat, eggs) and you still wanna do this diet, nothing like consuming only bought-frozen (except for eggs). Freezing kills parasites and bacteria, and doesn't damage the protein (unlike cooking). Freezing is 100% Wai. However, some of the nasty parasites of the unsafe-to-eat-raw fish and meat species might survive freezing, so don't eat unsafe species even if bought-frozen!
