As you can see, had quite a bit of fruit the past few days, and subsequently a few small pimples on my chin, nose and forehead. Or else it was the nightshades, not to sure, but my bet is on the fruit. My skin still looks good regardless, inflammation is definately down. Strange about fruit, I need to test it some more, so for the next week or so I will refrain from eating any.

B: chicken and veggies stew
L: chicken and veggies stew
D: bone marrow and veggies soup

Mood: 7/10, my mood has also improved, normally I have more down days than up, now it seems the other way around
Energy: 7/10
Skin: 7/10

Just locally, from Johannesburg to Cape Town, but I'm back again in JHB (not for the week-end though)

My skin has taken a turn for the bad, especially my chin, I have developed a lot of small whiteheads on my chin? Fruit or nightshades? My skin was just fine last week? I can just cry.

B: bone broth and veggies soup
L: chicken and veggies stew
D: wildebees potjie with veggies (again not sure what sauces have been added), with a side salad (with tomato) / restaurant food

Mood: very good until about an hour ago when I saw my skin
Skin: 3/10, I need to figure out what went wrong

B: bacon and eggs, probably made with butter or worse margerine / hotel food
L: kudu fillet, pumpkin, mushrooms (some sauce on the meat, not sure what) / restaurant food

Skin: 3/10
Mood: 4/10
Energy: 3/10, was in the last ten to finish a mountainbiking competition, my low carb intake

Tomorrow I am back home and can eat normal again, loads of veggies, meat and chicken.

B: bacon and boiled eggs
L: bone marrow and veggies soup
Snack: chicken and veggies left overs

Just went shopping. This week will consist of chicken and veggies soup, chicken and veggies stew, O3 eggs and brocolli for breakfast, free range beef meatballs and maybe I will make some veggies juices. Hopefully things will settle down a bit. Won't be eating tomato (nightshades) and much fruit this week.

Skin: my chin really took a turn, had inflammation that came from somewhere, perhaps hormonal. My skin is also very oily, especially in the morning, or when I drive. 4/10
Mood: 6/10

B: scrambled eggs with spinach
Snack: meatball with 4 strawberries, bone broth and veggies soup
L: chicken and veggies stew, steamed brocolli, 1 avo

I love this diet, my food just tastes simply amazing, not sure if I will be able to eat out ever again

Mood: 8/10
Skin: 6/10, 4 or 5 actives around the chin area, but not bad, my skin texture and hair also looks better, maybe its just my imagination

B: scrambled eggs and broccoli
Snack: meatball, avo, rocket, watercress, spinach and cucumber salad (small)
L: chicken and veggies stew
D: chicken and veggies soup

Skin: 7/10, starting to look good again
Mood: 3/10, mostly due to work stress

Someone told me today that how can I be 37 and be so stupid to believe that diet can do anything for my skin (got a bit upset by his comment). He even said that I'm just looking for attention. Whatever...

My weight is my biggest problem on paleo, down to 50 kg again, my height is 1,68 m, so I'm underweight.

B: lamb and veggies stew
L: lamb and veggies stew
Snack: beef patty
D: chicken and veggies soup

Mood: 3-4/10, just felt a bit blah today, I do see a correlation with VLC the previous night and feeling very tired the next morning
Skin: 6/10, still getting pesky white heads around mouth and chin area, not bad though

Have not really seen a change after reintroducing eggs, could it be safe? Next might be fruit and nuts, I'll be so much happier if i can eat full-on Paleo, and not meat and veggies the entire time, even though its delicious, it does get boring.

Also had a large veggies juice.

Diet was same for week-end as above, meat and veggies stew / soup, mushrooms, avo.

Have also eaten macadamia nuts (4) today, so lets see if it breaks me out more than usual.

I also baked some coconut flour / pumkin muffins this afternoon, not too bad.

Skin: still getting some minor whiteheads on my chin, but maybe this is normal, I can't expect my hormones to just all of a sudden come right, so hopefully in another month or two they will be history (fingers crossed).

B: lamb and veggies stew
Snack: coconut, beef jerky, 85% dark chocolate (2 blocks)
L: lamb and veggies stew
D: chicken and veggies soup

Took 1 Udo's Super 8 Probiotics with dinner. Have not exactly had a bowel movement since last week-end and it is almost Friday. My stomach muscles just don't do anything to move things along, not sure how I can fix this because I'm sure its influencing my consistent break-outs and not so smooth forehead. Should maybe also check the medicine cupboard for Mg citrate or something, getting sick of this constipation issues.

Skin: 6/10
Mood: 2/10, at least I was productive at work

Going to change things up again, my fish consumption is almost non-existent. So this week I will only eat red meat once per week (Clear Skin Diet).
