For anyone interested...
And for the record: I am 22, female. Have PCOS (Polycysitc Ovary Syndrome). Have battled acne for 6 years.


My diet: (Breakfast)
Omelett with 3-4 eggs
Mixed with: Tomatoes, spinach, bell pepper.
Cooked using: Organic Coconut Oil
Sometimes (cause I don't want to lose weight): Toast with sesame seed butter.
Shot glass of water kefir
Supplements: Saw Palmetto, Cod liver oil, Milk Thistle

Snack:
Almonds OR Blueberries OR Celery

Lunch:
Chick Pea soup with green onions and garlic
OR
Subway Veggie/Turkey sandwich (6in on honey oat)
With mostly all veggies and the bulk of the bread removed
Supplement: Cinnamon capsule

Dinner:
Salad with chicken, avacado, radishes
Apple and Carrot Smoothie
Supplement: Milk Thistle, Cod liver oil, Saw Palmetto, Zinc 25mg


I always drink water a half hour to an hour after meals
Never with the meal (unless to take supplements)
I do this so that my body will absorb all the nutrients.
I drink water consistently in between meals.
This diet isn't strict! I change it up sometimes
but try to stay healthy


Skin Care Regimen:

Morning:
(On days when I wear no makeup)
Wash my face with African Black Soap
Moisturize with Jojoba Oil

(When i do wear makeup)
Eclos Plant Stem Cell face wash
Simple's Light Moisturizer

Night:
African Black Soap
Jojoba Oil
Sometimes I will rub aloe vera all over and let it stay on my face all night
OR
I dab a mixture of honey and cinnamon on any bumps

Masks: (Whenever I feel like it)
Yogurt and Cinnamon and Lemon (few drops)


I just ordered a multivitamin called Clearetto which consists of most of the vitamins I already take in one pill!
Also cause I'm traveling in a week, so it will be lot more convenient than packing a bunch of pill bottles! :)
Hope it helps!
Has anyone reading taken Clearetto?



So far I've been I've been on this exact regime for about 4 days.
I will post updates, if anything changes, or it stops working.
Thanks! :)

Too much cod liver oil can have the opposite effect. Whole grains like oatmeal, brown rice, teff should be fine. You can substitute egg whites instead of the eggs. Also increase ur vitamin A/zinc intake from natural sources like sweet potatoes, pumpkin seed oil etc.
