^ even macadamias. I searched around a bit and it seems as if most people with nut problems are ok with macadamias. I might try them and see

I used to have problems with almonds...every time I ate them I broke out...a lot. I used to have really bad acne...cystic, whiteheads, and blackheads...the works! You know, those huge nasty pimples that never came to surface (cowards!) and took WEEKS to go away..ugh they are the worst and hurt like crap! After detoxing my body with herbs and whole foods (mainly in raw form) I can eat them with no problem! Yippee. I mainly focused on cleansing my liver and colon.

^ walnuts also have a lot of omega 3s though. For some reason they broke me out though... I've had macadamias before, though I don't remember if they caused any problems and I'm scared to eat more nuts


A lot of ALA, which is pretty useless for the most part.
And it certainly doesn't have enough Omega-3s to counteract the Omega-6s.

Plus some phytic acid thrown into the mix. Non-animal sources of omega-3 are crappy.

i got some macadamias today and ate about 1 cup worth (which is like 1000) calories. They're pretty tasty, sort of similar to pistachios. I'll see how I react tomorrow.

Sounds good vapor, i'll look forawrd to your reply.

I definitley break out from nuts, and i think it's to do with digestion. Your digestion must be spot on to not break out from it i believe. Shouldn't consume much of it though anyway, it really is a snack food and nothing else.

If macademias were to be good, i'd love to have a spread from it for now and then.

^ Skin looks good this morning. If anything bad happens, I'll post here later though. Yeah, they're pretty expensive, I got them on sale for 10.99/lb which is probably more about 2 cups (so over 2000 calories). A good way to add a lot of calories on an acne diet without eating a ton.

i hope the lack of a response to how she reacted means noo. altho its only one person, nutrision as a whole seems quite personalised, even more so when it comes to nuts....
