Today I started my acne free diet.

 

Uhm, spent a lot of years to understand what causes me a breakout and what not, but still I think there is something that I did not notice. Take a look :

 

I get acne from :

 

1. Milk

2. Anything that contains milk / cheese

3. Sugar / even natural sugar in fruits ( Apples / Bannanas / etc.)

4. Pig meat

5. Any type of oil (sun flower / olive / palm)

6. Ketchup / pepper , anything that is like that

7. Caffeine / excitants

8. Bread

9. Peanuts

10. eggs

11. SOY

12. Wine

 

I usually dont get acne from :

 

Beer

Cucumbers

Dark rice

Kinda almost all vegetables excluding red beans

 

So today I ate :

 

1. Cucumbers

2. Chicken breastplate

3. Radishes

4. Kidney Beans

5. Fresh Olives

 

But at night, checking myself I have noticed that I BROKE OUT like nuts.... how could this be possible ?

 

What caused me to break out so much ?

Your breakout is probably from something you ate several days ago rather than today.

Yes, but you can have a delayed breakout from something else you ate.

That was all I ate. I usually break out after eating something not after one day or two.

 

So I am curious if anyone knows what was wrong in my diet, the radishes ? olives ?

If you have that many food sensitivities maybe you should look into immunomodulators such as colostrum.

We can't tell you. You have to figure it out by methodical elimination.
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!

My bet would be on either the olives or the kidney beans. Maybe start with a strict paleo diet consisting of mostly raw vegetables and a few fruit, then if you are clear on this diet start reintroducing new foods in small quantities to see what breaks you out. But yeah, as paigems mentioned, food sensitivities can take hours and even days to show up. Food allergies show up immediately on your skin and also in other symptoms like closed throat. You probably have sensitivities, not full blown allergies. 


Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials... (although I have been slacking lately)
