Foreword: As i've been clammering that your acne is due to damaged body (the gut) and what you need to eat is food that is easy to digest to fix your body from the inside out. I know a WAPF chapter lead personally and she was talking to someone at her shop about the GAPS diet - and this intrigued me so I started reading into it and wow - this doctor really knows what she's talking about. Anyone who wants a cure for there problems should definitely look into this diet. Not just the "allowed foods list" but to actually order the book and follow each stage. This is by far the most health restorative diet i've ever come across.
With that said - anyone with persistent acne, and other issues should check this out. This diet has healed many "incurable illnesses".
First, watch this:

Hippocrates: "All disease begins in the gut"
Hello Moonbeam! This is what I have been saying in like every post! LOL
I have been following the GAPS/SCD diet protocol for some time now. I told you it goes into extensively about the starches as well. It is scientifically backed.
I am a bit confused, which one do you recommend?
The Paleo Diet.
The GAPS DIET is VERY VERY close to the PALEO diet. I follow the GAPS diet yet use many Paleo cookbooks, the only differences are very minor such as chocolate and cocoa are allowed on paleo and they are not on GAPS as well as certain starches are not allowed such as sweet potatoes/yucca etc. Otherwise they are pretty much similar.
If the GAPS diet seems to difficult for the intro diet (the mainly soup broth stage) you can start at FULL GAPS (which is basically Paleo esq) except a few more restrictions. You can still have fruit, veggies, meat, honey, coconut flour, almond flour etc.
