my biology book told me in school that 1st carbs are burnt,then fat and then protein.

fat is the source only when u need more energy and dont have enough carb.

doesnt mean its necessarily good.

also,carb happens to give maxm amount of energy.

so yes,u need it.

plus it should be consumed(unless u're intolerable or allergic) for thats how our ancestor have evolved.

(remember that chapter evolution in school..our gut's evolved with our brain size!)

Dieting in relation to acne is very complex.
 
I completely agree with alternativista when she says "Just a nutrient dense, anti-inflammatory, low to moderate (as in not high) glycemic impacting that doesn't include anything you have an intolerance for." The biggest problem... and MOST DIFFICULT problem to solve is what a person has an intolerance for. I could be eating a nutrient dense, anti-inflammatory diet like Alternatavista advocates, and STILL have acne because I am consuming an item that I am allergic to. 
 
How ridiculous is that?!


Which brings us to the only 'extreme' diet I have ever recommended. An elimination diet in which you limit yourself to hypoallergenic foods.

However, whoarthou. You are a teen, right? I don't think proper diet can stop puberty from happening. Just make it a smoother transition. Why don't you try a topical for your back? Have you ever tried Acv diluted with brewed green tea? Or aspirin mask/scrub? Or a purchased BHA?
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!

Alterntavista, I know you are misled by my photos to believe I am a teenager (I guess it is because I am skinny like a teenager). I am 23 years of age... pretty sure I am done with puberty.

 

I have tried apple cider vinegar diluted with water (not green tea), and it gave me the worst breakout of my life on my face. Never tried an aspirin mask/scrub. I have paulas choice BHA... Would you recommend me using that on my back for body acne?

wheat/gluten is not the only cause of acne.am sure u must have figured that out.

it does solve the problem for many but u DO NOT HAVE to quit it.

u gotta check for urself.

 

go through the 'diet & holistic living' forums and also the 'general acne' forum to know more.

Can you tell me why you shouldnt take probiotics with inulin, FOS, and bifidobacterium?  I havent heard of this but I take a 50billion probiotic from Renew Labs and I swear it makes me break out.  I know my gut flora is not balanced as I had a stool test done and even though I take 50 billion a day, it said I have no lactobacillus.  Very strange

I follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which is designed to balance the gut flora, and these 3 ingredients are not allowed on this diet. Inulin and FOS feed both good and bad bacteria, so if you have an overgrowth of bad bacteria, they will exacerbate it.

 

Here's some info on bifidus/bifidobacteria and the SCD: http://www.breakingt...detail/bifidus/

 

Personally, I had one of the worst breakouts of my life from a probiotic that contained bifidobacteria (and it didn't have FOS or inulin). But acidophilus only improves my skin. I use Kirkman's acidophilus.

What contains FOS and inulin?

Sorry. I thought you'd told me you were a teen. Must be someone else.

once or twice a month I browse this board and you're always claiming you're clear with some new method... Hopefully this time there is some truth behind it and your recommendations ;)
