...and it was there all along
hi. im going clear everyone's acne who reads this blog. your acne will be cleared.
recently i did more research. i found some interesting stuff. go to google and type in "huffington post acne milk sugar" click on the first link.
read it and be amazed!
go back to google and type in "australian womens weekly acne diet" click on the first link
go back to google and type in "
A Look at How High Glycemic Foods may Cause Acne" click on the first link
then use ncbi to look up the studies on how high glycemic diet is linked to acne in countries like Malaysia and South Asia. one study said 0 people out of 1000 who at low glycemic diet had acne. about 80% of the people who at high glycemic had acne.
so what does this all mean for us? acne is still genetic. but, a high glycemic diet, ice cream and especially milk cause it for most sufferers of acne. it also means all those things at the store are mostly useless like proactive. it means all those medicines like tetracycline, differin, benoyl peroxide!, and accutane are just dangerous and not needed and usually dont work. once you go off them here comes the acne back. usually they kill good bacteria and make your acne caused by superbacteria which are much harder to deal with after. but NO FEAR
there are some simple ways to get rid of acne and you dont even have to make a huge change to your diet
have you ever heard people say that people with acne should eat like a diabetic? well its true! but there are several things that lower insulin resistance and decrease its release. and its all backed up by scientific studies you can find on ncbi.
-apple cider vinegar or any other type of vinegar added to a meal decreases insulin release by 30%. what does this mean for us? we can still eat that high glycemic diet we just need to drink a little bit of vinegar with it everytime we eat these foods. doing this will lower the insulin release and prevent acne.
-cinnamon! 5g a day decreases insulin signifigantly!
-garlic, almonds, and onions all decrease it as well
-vitamin d!!! decreases it as well by a huge number. in 1933 a study was done and 76% of people cleared up from acne within 3 months when they took 5,000 iu vitamin d a day
-evening primrose oil! (1000mg twice a day!)
i only found this info last week and i almost cried when i realized it was true. i wish i would have known this 6 years ago so i wouldnt have taken all the meds that i thought my doctor knowingly perscribed to help me. i've been drinking just apple cider viengar with every meal and im clear along with taking 9,000 iu vitamin d a day! i hope posts like these will make america wake up and realize that their diet has caused them all these health problems
anyway dont thank me for this because it was already on the internet and i know a lot of people on this great site already know about the REAL cause of acne IS HIGH GLYCEMIC FOODS AND MILK see the attachment for a great explanation i found
I'm going to blow the high GI theory out of the water.
GI has little relevance if consumed with protein and fats or if the person has already eaten before consuming an high GI food.
I am not saying high GI foods are good. However all the studies done on high GI foods were done on fasted people. Little or no research has been done on non fasted people, so the GI scale just isn't accurate.
Consuming high GI foods with protein and fats slows the absorption rate of the said food therefore lowering the GI effect on the body.
Also not everyone reacts in the same to foods so to say you will cure everyone's acne who reads this is just arrogance of the highest order.
Just to be clear on this.
I am not 100% discounting GI. Yes eating lower GI foods is of course a lot better than eating high GI foods.
However, for me there just isn't enough been done on it to conclude it is the number 1 cause or cure.
I workout a lot. Most of the time i eat a balance low gi diet, gluten free and so on. However there times i am required to eat high GI foods, post training for example or when i have a reward meal. For me that has no effect on my acne.
The GI scale just cannot be accurate all of the time due to the amount of variables going on when eating.
Be careful what u say, you may prevent some people from getting clear skin.
High Gi is the cause of my acne, i can't eat fruits and root veggies. I always thought my acne was some food allergy, but then i tried to cut out all the high carb and glycemic foods and began to eat nuts, seeds, fish, eggs again and i have not got 1 acne breakout since. But i know if i eat an apple i will have acne on my chin the next day! SO WATCH OUT WHAT YOU SAY.
I hear and ya. I didn't mean to come across in a way that i was saying GI is completely irrelevant. It's not it does contribute but i just think it is not as big of a factor as many think it is.
It would be interesting to see a study of someone eating high GI foods mixed in with proteins and fats to slow down absorption therefore lowering the GI impact. Also a study on non fasted people, then measure the GI impact.
I also think that when people watch the GI of foods they tend to low carb or eat gluten free carbs. Cutting gluten deffo improved my skin.
Many factors to consider rather than just GI impact.
Ok here's the deal with high glycemic index foods. People (like me) who are even slightly hyperinsulinemic (having a high level of circulating insulin levels in the blood) are sensitive to high GI foods.
Why do people become hyperinsulinemic? Because they are becoming insulin resistant. How did this happen to them? Because their body is sensitive to a diet high in carbs. Over the course of months or years of consistently eating a diet high in carbs and/or sugars, a person MAY become insulin resistant. When a person is insulin resistant, they constantly have too much insulin in their blood. When this happens, their bodies are already in a diseased state which probably causes acne.
I read yesterday that when a person who is even slightly hyperinsulinemic eats a high GI food, it can trigger a response that goes like this:
High-GI food ---> spike in insulin in bloodstream ---> produce more androgens ---> increase sebum production in skin ---> pores clog up ---> acne flare-up
I suspect that people who have a normal blood insulin level and who don't get spiked by eating high-GI foods probably wouldn't have an acne flare-up from that food.
You're not wrong what you are saying but find me one study where high GI foods have been fasted on non fasted people?
That is my whole point. The GI debate just ins't accurate because not every variable has been explored.
The GI we all know was tested on fasted people. Nothing has been done on none fasted people.
Consuming an GI food with protein and or fats slows the rate of absorption. Slower absorption means lower GI.
