How I've Come To Eat What I Eat

7 posts in this topic

Hey people, I thought you might be interested in my new blog, "Why My Diet Has No Label, and How I've Come to Eat What I Eat"

http://thecircledancer.blogspot.com/2012/07/why-my-diet-has-no-label-and-how-ive.html

I've only recently decided to start this blog, and I'm linking you here because some of the posts will focus on the sort of diet that has helped me heal my skin conditions. I'm not entirely sure the direction I'm going to go with it, as it's also a place for me to talk about and promote my fictional writing (2 novels in the works), but as of now it's sort of a dance/fitness/food/health/goddess/writer blog, and I figured I'd link you all at the forums to anything I post that may be relevant to food, healing or acne care.

Thanks for your support, I hope you enjoy.

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil

Great article, and congrats on your "free-flowing" diet.

What is that salad made out of?

Usually, instead of delicious salads I just pile bunch of grab of vegetables and fruits and make one big smoothie and drink them throughout the day. The taste isn't the best but it really helps me.

The salad is romaine, pecans, various sprouts, avocado. I think that's it. It is an older picture, but I am going to start posting salads on there more. I make a different one every day, I might as well take some pictures! Each is a creation that lives but once. :)

Beautiful writing! I'd love to think of my diet that way instead of feeling restricted...it's something I've been working on, and your take is inspiring. I hope to reach that level of peace about my diet and lifestyle, and this makes it seem like a tangible goal. Thanks for sharing :)


Got clear with Accutane; stayed clear with diet.

Pescetarian, wild seafood only. NO SOY EVER. No dairy. No eggs that aren't labeled as soy-free. TONS of fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, legumes, raw nuts/seeds and whole grains. VERY limited junk food in VERY small portions. Be conscious of getting enough omega-3's.

I wash 2x daily with pure olive oil soap. I moisturize with a sparing amount of Cerave. I'm very particular when choosing makeup and I remove it with EVOO.

I used to be a skeptic about the holistic approach. Now I'm in control, and I'm never going back.

Cool read. I don't know how you can mention talking your way out of being kidnapped and then just dropping the subject, haha. Perhaps for another blog post.

I agree with the main idea completely. Sometimes I want a fatty meal. Sometimes I want something sweet and juicy. Sometimes both. Sometimes I want to eat everything in sight, and sometimes nothing at all. Restricting myself of any of it creates a longing in me...if I restrict myself too much that can sometimes be more destructive than eating a "bad" food for me. I don't crave the foods that don't sit well with me anyway, so win/win!

To the OP. Dieting is silly. The only point of a diet should be to heal your body. Once that's done as long as you get the nutrients you need in you diet, you can eat whatever the hell you want. I think that's the big thing people are missing.

Yeah exactly, the further you go down this road, the less your body will crave bad foods. You get to where you trust what you crave. I knew I was supposed to start eating sweet potatoes again, and I felt a lot better after eating them! I hope my body will continue to guide me in this way.

The longer I live, the more importance I find in pausing life, looking inward, and simply "listening". Many of life's answers can be found from within.
