one more addition to the above list :

 

 

#CHICKEN LIVER - (PLEASE NOTE : be careful about overdose of vitamin A which is present in extremely high amount.

                                it's a no-no for pregnant women for the same reason)

                                (i personally DO NOT like or support consumption of any form of liver including chicken liver RAW)

 

here are some links on and about chicken liver :

 

http://www.guardian....-chicken-livers

 

http://healthyeating...ating-1904.html

 

http://nutritiondata...-products/667/2

 

http://www.livestron...-chicken-liver/

 

http://www.fatsecret...a/chicken-liver

 

so it has zinc,iron,vitamins(B12 SPECIALLY) and also others like vit C.plus vitamin A(when consumed in right amount and in right frequency).

so,i can firmly state that its very good for acne.

its high protein,low sodium, and low fat too.

 

words of caution :

be careful about the amount of cholestrol and vitamin A contained in it.

Liver,be it chicken,mutton or whatever? ewww....i used to eat it when i was small (like really small 4-5 years old) .I hated it always.I never have it now.

I don't know who thinks potatoes are poison. They are nearly empty calories and the way most people prepare and eat them, they are junk.

And that is a stupid article. If the autor is concerned about blood presseure, they should recommend foods that are much better sources of potassium while also being good sources of other important nutrients like beans, greens, and squashes. And then the relegate other white vegetables that are good for you to one sentence: cauliflower, onions, garlic, mushrooms, etc.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

For more information, see my Good Things for Acne thread *Moderator edit - Please refer to the board rules (see “Advertising/soliciting”, “Linking” and “Signatures”)*

When you eat stuff, Stuff Happens!

Well health conscious people these days abhor potatoes...But i think they are good energy foods provided you consume them judiciously.On good days when the sun is shining and my dad is in a good mood,he'll bake me a nice potato :) Love it.

i dnt agree with everything that the article said but i also dont agree with those who 'completely quit' having white potatoes of any kind and yes,i know many people online (here or running other health blogs) who consider 'potatoes = poison'.

 

i was surprised he stated many consider 'all stuff bad' .so i did a quick search here and damn!he's right there are posts here where 'some' stated 'everything white is bad'.

how silly!

of course we know cabbage, cauliflower , mushrooms are good.

 

potatoes are high calorie content food and also, the way most eat them is bad.

but there are good ways and smart ways of using small (healthy) amount of potato in dishes that would add lil' calorie,good potassium, water content and loads of taste to the dish.

 

potatoes are bad for people with hugh sugar level but otherwise completely restricting it in even healthy mode of preparation  , is not a must IMO.



zinc would do u good.

it helps acne.

but thats more important if zinc deficiency is what has effected ur acne in the 1st place.

it is often noted that acne sufferers have lower zinc level.

 

as for cod liver oil,i've heard its good for over all health.

why do u wanna add it?

cant u just have food that has same benefits?

Yes i'd rather have equivalent foods than take cod liver oil.But i'm not able to take good food when i'm in my college away from my house.So i have to rely solely on artificial supplements sad.png

BLACK CHICKPEAS/ WHOLE BLACK GRAM  and/or USE GARBANZO BEANS :

 

http://whfoods.org/g...tname=foodspice

 

http://nutritiondata...products/4326/2

 

the black chickpeas are smaller but more nutritious than the bigger white chickpeas(garbanzo beans).

 

 

preparation :http://tablespooning...hana-chickpeas/

 

NOTE : the traditional method is different and not done in an oven but on sand.that is infact the method used when getting the store packet ones - which btw are crunchier and tastier.
