i have been on a low glycemic diet for 2 and half months. 3 weeks ago i cut out sugar. 1 week ago i cut out all grains making my diet a true paleo diet. after the first 2 months i had great improvement. about 55%. after cutting out the sugar i had 75% improvement. After cutting out the grains i am now 95% clear. the only mistake i made was adding some flax seeds to my oatmeal. Everytime i add omega 3's to my diet i break out in cysts that i never get otherwise. they last about 2 weeks. this happened with fish oil and now with flax seed. anyway, after going full paleo and cutting out the pop corn i was using as a snack, my back acne continues to be 100% clear. other than the cysts which are shrinking which were caused by flax seed, i have 2 pimples on my upper right forehead. it is very strange because i have gotten them there for about 2 weeks and 1 on my right forehead. and no where else. both cheeks are clear except for the cysts!!! w000t!  i can finally shave. none of that chin acne! it feels awesome! i am just waiting for these last few pimples on the forehead to clear up. and i have a new one but its from the flax seed. so i recomend it to everyone but u must be strict. i had lunch today with some students who offered me pizza and was about to cheat but realized it is not worth it! while this diet will not make you feel great, not having the acne is really nice!

 

 

oh and i have a question. can i eat oatmeal?? it is not instant. if i am having problems when i eat whole grain bread is it ok for me to eat oatmeal? because the oatmeal i eat could definately have been eaten by a caveman.

Thank you for sharing your success story, it's really encouraging :)! Have you noticed a decrease in clogged pores or oily skin (if those were problems for you)? I'm not really sure about the oatmeal, but I'm sure other people will have some insight.

Congratulations. And you'll just have to try the oats. The closer to whole he better. I actually eat whole oat groats soaked overnight before cooking. And buckwheat which I've recently started sprouting.

First of all, good job! You skin may still be "acne prone" for a while, so do your best to just ignore those little guys on your forehead until they're gone.

 

Second of all, Omega 3's and flaxseeds were giving you cysts? Yikes! I wonder why that is? Almost everyone here are usually told to take any Omega 3's they can get their hands on!

 

Perhaps the industrialized Omega 3 pills and the plant based Omega 3's just aren't comparable to the benefits of simply eating good fish.

 

As for the oatmeal, I'd say give it a go! Have a cup or two every other day and see where it takes you. Make sure it isn't too processed though, hence "oatmeal" and "oats". Get the bigger grainy guys, the "oats". They don't 'fluff' as instantly as oatmeal does, so soak it or bake it with something else. I'm personally not a fan of oats but it can leave you pretty satisfied.

i think you are right because when i eat fish i do not think i get the cysts. i am having salmon tonight so i will see if anything happens in about 2 days or if i stay pretty much clear.

No one should be getting acne from eating fish... at least not to my knowledge o_0. If so then it's the most contradictory thing out there (other than being a possible food allergy), and almost all the people who have "cured" themselves and left the site would have come back only days later.

 

I wouldn't expect any fast results from eating food except for bathroom trips. Easting fish today wont effect your skins acne just two days later, at least from a noticeable standpoint. What's important is that you care for yourself and the inside of your body. Once all the previous things you have eaten (junk food, dairy, sugary foods, etc...) have filtered out of your body, your organs should heal up quite nicely and start functioning normally again. The only issue is that every body is different, so it could take months to years to do this. Again keep up the great work smile.png.
