Seriously, can I give up oats and wholgrain rye bread forever for mediocre results? No.

L: chicken and veggies stew
D: lightly smoked wild mackerel, avo, beetroot
Snack: carrots dipped in macadamia nut butter
Skin: 5/10, my skin colour is also funny lately, hope its not due to beta-carotene overload, I don't look or feel good about myself, probably need to up my greens instead of always having carrots and butternut squash, but yeah, my colour is way off
Mood: 1/10 this morning, 4/10 in the afternoon
Paleo Diet: 36/90 (at day 90 I will completely stop my low dose Accutane, and should start breaking out fairly quickly, few weeks to a month max)

I had chicken and avo on a rye sandwich. I just don't see a future without some grains, nothing terrible, just some basmati / brown rice, steel cut GF oats and GF bread / rye bread at one or two meals per day. I don't need to have much dairy or sugar or anything like that, but if I do, I won't die.
For now, I'm sticking to my 10 mg roaccutane while focussing on trying to get my BMs to be more regular.

Skin: 8.5 / 10, not oily as usual

Skin: 8/10, have upped my dose to double the amount, ie 3 g nicotinamide, 400 mg zinc. To soon after accutane to tell if this is working. A month should do!
Posted 20 July 2013 - 12:25 PM
2,1 g nicotinamide
300 mg zinc
3 g vitamin c
250 mg vitamin b6
30 g pygenol

Still 9/10, no actives.

Worried about all the other stuff I'm taking, ie GLA, B6, C, manganese, p-5-p (mainly for depression) and maybe I should just stick with the nicom and zinc for now.

I have dropped down to 1 pill (375 mg nico and 100 mg zinc) twice per day.
Stopped all other pills except for pycegenol for melasma (40 g twice per day).
It is almost a month since stopping accutane.

My new orthomolecular protocol:
- 1000 mg no-flush niacin, 3 times per day - 3000 mg / day
- 110 mg zinc, 2 per day - 220 mg / day
- 1,5 g vitamin C, 3 times per day - 4,5 g / day
- 50 mg of p5p - 50 mg / day
Im actually supposed to take 250 mg B6, but instead is taking p5p 50 mg.
My current skin condition:
- more oily, but not as bad as previously
- suddenly getting blackheads again
- have new small whiteheads daily

Have also started to apply a niacinamide topical gel, not sure if it is the reason why I do not appear to have any actives.
5 weeks off roaccutane.

I will be starting a new log, as I am no longer eating paleo.
