So, I've been on an anti-acne diet for years and I stick to it. The only problem I have is going out to eat. I have been restricting my social life in order to keep up the diet and avoid going out to eat. Normally, I manage to get around this by going out only on very rare occasions and only going to buffets or a place where I can eat baked chicken/fish and vegetables.
I have a friend who wants to go to CherryBerry. It's a yogurt place. I am wondering since this would be a rare treat which of the options might be the least damaging. I could go with either
1) No sugar added yogurt (this would have milk and splenda).
2) Dairy-free sorbet (so no milk but 19-20 grams of sugar)
3) Greek yogurt (both milk and sugar but potentially a little less sugar and greek yogurt is supposedly even better with the probiotics and protein).
Unfortunately, they do not have a dairy-free, no sugar added option.
My plan would be to have 1 serving, slowly enjoy it and go right back to my diet.
Depends on how well you tolerate dairy. You can have a fiber supplement before he sugar. Move around after to burn sugar so your cells can take in more. And stop being so strict all the time.
Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
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
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!
