Veggies that I love (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots)
Stocked up on ground flaxseeds!
Bought my first bottle of organic coconut oil. Fried my eggs in it, and poured a tablespoon over my brown rice. SO delicious!
Also, my dad just got back from a trip to America. I asked him to get me the fragrance free version of the Neutrogena facewash (Liquid Neutrogena) I've been using, as it isn't available here.
I LOVE the fragrance free scent! Reminds me of Clinique.

I've pretty much been clear since my last visit.
I got one pimple after reintroducing bread. It was multi-grain brown bread, but I saw that it had sugar in its ingredients. It couldn't have been much, but atleast I know sugar is NO NO number one for me.
A few tiny white heads the one time I smoked pot, but nothing too terrible.
I haven't been taking my zinc supplements, and even ran out of probiotics a couple of weeks ago.
I have been having Nature Made Multi Daily (with calcium).
I'm going to edit my first post soon, hopefully making it more short and orderly! This whole threads been so messy. I apologize!

Another thing, I added olive oil back into my diet yesterday. I used to eat it with toast before, and found that I got spots. Silly me though, ofcourse it was the bread.

The basis of the book is that our Omega 3,6, and 9 levels are all off balance and we consume too much sugar. I never ate candy or too many sweets but my weakness was carbs. I didn't know that all carbs eventually get broken down into sugar in our bodies. My body didn't know how to process that many sugars and the result was acne. For some people it's diabetes, some people get fat, and others get bad acne.
I've only been lots of eating raw, alkalizing veggies, some fruit, and correct portions of meat. I've cut out all dairy (except for Kefir. It's magical.) and all carbs/grains, oils, and nuts. It hasn't been easy but it has been so worth it.
If you're really willing to make the effort, I highly recommend checking it out. Just Google Ray J. Wang acne or something like that. Best $20 I ever spent compared to the hundreds I've spent on worthless products that didn't do anything for me...even antibiotics and birth control. I'm sorry if this was just a big long rant. But I really truly believe this is the cure to acne for every single person who has it.

The 2 days that I ate it, I had a lot more energy than usual, but I feel two new spots coming up.
Well, atleast I know now.

I've also been having wheatgrass shots.

Went through a rough patch. Family drams, weight loss from cutting out too many food items and all the cycling, stressing over everything I ate.
Yes, my skin did get very clear, but I was extremely depressed and anxious all the time. When I got on a weighing scale and almost fainted with shock at the figures I saw, I decided my health was way more important. I got a whole bunch of tests done. All clear. No wheat/gluten/dairy allergies.
Added dairy and wheat back into my diet, started gaining back some weight and feeling a whole lot better. Stopped stressing about food, and kind of let go. I'm only 23. I throughly enjoyed weeks of eating delicious food, along with healthy food, of course. Sweet treats, too. Sugar is the enemy. I broke out a little on my cheeks, but I was too happy to bother. The pimples are gone, but they've left dark spots. And those are driving me nuts.
Anyway, the good that has come out of this is that I know I can consume dairy and wheat. And pretty much anything apart for sugar, without breaking out.
That's such a load off.

Chapatis and chicken curry for lunch.
Peanut butter sandwich.
Warm water with lemon juice.
Huge glass of carrot and cucumber juice.
A handful of almonds.
Pasta with chicken and cheese for dinner. =[
Will have a cup of warm water with lemon juice before bed.
Going to see a dermi tomorrow morning! I've never really been to one, and the doctor I've found has got glowing reviews (from friends. I've seen the difference!)
These dark spots are really bothering me, and it's about time I did something about it.

Then about 3 weeks ago, I experimented with red wine. I drank about 2 glasses a night for a few days, and my skin was fine.
And then one night, I went and had an entire bottle. Argh. Worst hangover I've had in a long time, and I brokeout. Been extra careful about what I eat since then, and thankfully, I've finally cleared up, but I'm left with brand new dark spots. Argh.
When will I learn?
No sugar binges. No alcohol binges.
Eat healthy. Things I have to include. Bananas and bcomplex. Vegetable juice. Lemon juice. Green tea.
Use neutrogena ultrasheer no matter what! Cannot go a day without it.
Lemon juice to tone at night.

I've had a piece of dessert everyday these past three days though. 😔
No new pimples, but my skin does look a bit blotchy.
Must be strong! No more sugar.
