well i learned that the cause of teenage acne is insulin resistance that is natural as a part of puberty and which goes away after puberty is over. but you don't have to accept the acne. obvi the kitavan people don't even get any!
so i started a low glycemic diet. i cut out white bread, white rice, white tortillas, and all proccessed foods. i have a friend at school who's acne has suddenly disappeared. i asked him why and he said he realized after 3 years that he only got acne when he drank soft drinks and had sugar! i was amazed. well it turns out sugar raises our blood sugar which increases insulin and you know the rest how it raises free androgens which increases sebum. anyway so i cut out all unneccesary sugars.
here is what i have been eating for the past week:
breakfast: eggs or oatmeal sweetened with honey
lunch: fruit bar
lunch when i get home ( i am a hungry man )
left overs such as
sugar free almond milk
dinner: something like chicken with vegetables
here is what i am eating:
brown rice tortilla chips
whole grain pasta
heres what i dont:
white tortilla chips
all the info about low glycemic is online! you can find alternates to almost any food you like! and don't forget to cut out the sugars! my skin is not oily anymore and the acne is going away like when i was on antibiotics!! it feels great!!! i recomend all of you to try it and to never have acne again like the kitavan people!
for all you skeptics here is an article from an actual doctor about the cause of acne and how to cure it: http://www.huffingto...a_b_822163.html
it tells you on there what to eat, what suplements to take, and what not to eat. i don't even care that i didn't find this years ago i'm just happy i did!
