Cold Water Fish

31 posts in this topic

Is it possible to consume TOO much cold water fish (salmon, sardines, anchovies, etc)?

I eat it sometimes everyday

Cold water fish are the best in my opinion -- delicious and heart healthy, but sometimes are preserved with way too much salt, although if you're exercising and sweating a lot it may balance out.

I consume frozen fish every day. I limit myself to 1-2 cans of salmon per day because of the high salt. Fish, the kind that is wild & not high in mercury make my skin glow and appear less red.

Ribbonettes, which exact frozen fish do you consume every day? The following is what I consume:

1) Wild planet sardines (in spring water)

2) Wild caught sockeye alsakan salmon (from costco)

thats about it

Wild alaskan red (sockeye) salmon from costco (was using kirkland brand, but now I'm using orca bay brand)

Sometimes I eat seared ahi at outback steak house, but the ahi I bought from costco made me breakout pretty bad. Not sure if it was a certain kind of ahi or if it just had high levels of mercury, but it was the fresh one.

I'm also very eager to try wild tilapia & flounder fish.. I heard those are also very good. However, I can't find wild tilapia or flounder where I live. I asked orca bay to ship some over. And then maybe I'll contact costco and ask if I can make a request.

But yeah, I eat salmon every single day at every meal.. along with egg yolks & greens. I don't get tired of it. It's just so delicious with the right herbs & spices.

It's an expensive diet, but my face stays the most clear when I eat this way and people tell me I look good surprised.gif

*edit ohh and sometimes I also eat sardines in spring water the brand brunswick.

I wanted to add grassfed beef to my diet as well, but same problem.. can't find any in my area <.< would have to go to town... not even 100% sure if they carry it there. The Organic beef from costco made be breakout even though I thought it would be ok. (I learned that organic doesn't mean it's grassfed.) I always consider what the animal eats and I can tell already what is going to break me out and what isn't.

How bad was your acne at its worst stage??

Also, if you do not mind me asking, could you please tell me what foods you eat on a daily basis?

thanks

Are your eggs pasture raised eggs?

Do you consume any butter or dairy?

It was pretty bad. I had acne everywhere on my face except my eyelids.. It was bumpy and I broke out in some large ones too that would leave red & dark marks.

It just kept on coming, everyday, i could literally feel the pimples forming and my face was extremely itchy >< I'm surprised that i don't have bad scarring because I've been acne prone since I was 13.. but my skin seems to heal pretty quickly for the most part especially now that I eat the way I do. I also noticed I got a couple sunken acne scars when it was the worst, but those have actually healed up right away.. it was pretty scary huh.png but thx goodness they healed.

I wrote about what I eat in my post so I'll just copy and paste it here:

"I eat almost 0 sugar (no fruits since they broke me out). My diet consists of mostly grassfed meat, (when available) wild seafood, (salmon) egg yolks, avacados & vegetables like monoa lettutce, kale, spinach or zucchini. So I would eat this combo at every meal (breakfast, lunch & dinner) I eat until I'm full and eat 4-5 times per day. I don't count calories or anything. When I go to work I eat canned wild salmon & greens.

I also cook with garlic powder, turmeric, nutmeg, sea salt, dill weed, apple acider vinegar, organic dijon musturd & coconut oil on a daily basis. Ocassionally I use coconut flour & almond flour.

I also drink detox herbal teas as well as green & sage tea. I also drink noni juice (great source of vit C) I don't drink and eat together. I always wait 30 mins between eating & drinking (improves my digestion which is good for forehead acne) Working out too much made me breakout so I just do light exercise."

I get my eggs from costco they are the organic grade A eggs (they are brown in color). I have not found any problems with these eggs as far as breaking me out. The egg whites break me out however; and there is actually scientific evidence that the egg white is not that good for us anyways.. I have the link to the article if you are interested. So that is why I eat the egg yolk only, I feel that it actually benefits me since it is good cholesterol. Good cholesterol is so important.

I make a homemade mayo for my fish using egg yolks, organic dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar & coconut oil. It is very delicious to top it on fish and then put it in a oven for the last 3-5 minutes of cooking & I get a nice texture.

I stay away from dairy. I heard that full fat organic butter might be ok, but I haven't tried it myself personally.

I know a lot about diet, trust me. In essence we should be consuming the following : fatty fishes (wild caught), fatty cuts of meats (100% pasture raised AND finished), eat broths and organ meats, lots of leafy greens, limit fruits (and fruits should be eaten when overripe), nuts (I think the best nuts are macadamia nuts), and healthy fats (olive oil, avocado, butter, ghee, animal fat, lard etc)

Today was father's day, went out with my family to dinner and I got tempted and ate a burger with fries. I hope I dont break out

okay so u were talking about diet that SUITS YOU.

healthy diet is subjective.

eggs are good unless u r intolerant.

fruits that can be eaten 'unripe' is just as good that way.

its a differnt story if u r better with those ripened ones.

i personally dnt support high fat diet.

its not ideal.

some amount of ghee is good.

yes, fats are an integral aspect of our diet (in moderation)and traditional ghee is the best form of fat that your body can ask for. The only condition to making traditional ghee is that it must be made from fresh or pasteurised milk without resorting to shortcuts for this process.also,without any adulteration.

but butter and animal fat isnt ideal IMO.

i can talk about butter.

it has low smoking point which the bonds are thus easily broken.

oxidation and apparently releases free radicals.

aturated fat which increases the LDL (bad) cholesterol in the blood. But for centuries it has been a favourite cooking medium in india.but what we need to keep in mind is the amount of physical activity they had.

and they had traditional ghee not the bad commercial stuff(at least here in most indian markets)

Eggs break me out, I am almost certain of this. I cannot find 100% pasture raised eggs where I live unfortunately.

Overripe works best for me because I seem to digest them better vs when underipe.

Ghee/butter/animal fat is extremely healthy. You need fat do absorb most minerals/vitamins (especially fat soluble vitamins).

Those are not pasture raised. Regarding my cheat day, I broke out in a few moderate sized inflamed acne. Back to my diet I go.

How many egg yolks do you consume I day? Yes I know that the nutritious part of the eggs are the yolks and not the whites

of course yolk is the nutritious part.

its the actual "lil' baby" u see.

what most mean is they are worried about the cholesterol it gives.(studies recently show there's less/no connection).the white part they say is free of that worry.

plus its not like its completely useless.

1-2 or 3 full eggs a day(if u aint intolerant) for a normal person is good i think.

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!

When you eat stuff, Stuff Happens!

most people avoiding fats shouldnt worry about taking in full eggs?

if they are worries about fat,shouldnt they be worried about the fat yolk has(not that i worry about.that amount of fat is okay i suppose - but those who are up for size zero might have to worry)

i dnt support high fat diet but healthy fat IMO is very important.

2-3 per day. That's good. A lot of people have it completely backwards.. i have to end up explaining it to everyone I talk to -.- and then they're like, "what?! i don't believe you." Smh. lol.

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!
