I have been eating peanut butter and nuts for about 7-8 months now. And within that time my skin has become extremely oily. I usually eat 6TBS of all natural PB and 70g of almonds every single day. I have also more acne within this time period. Ive read that nuts can cause more breakouts especially peanuts. So i decided to stop about 5 days ago,problem is my skin is still very oily and i havent noticed a difference? How long till the oil will decrease? Does it take a while for it to leave? Thanks.

Nuts and anything high in fat makes my skin more oily.

If it took 7-8 months for your skin to become oily, 5 days is not enough to be able to tell the difference. Besides that, peanuts are not the nuts I would advice to eat on a daily basis. Almonds should be fine, in moderation. Walnuts are good, too. Macadamia nuts are also delicious and good for you. Have a variety of nuts just like you have a variety of vegetables. You can use the http://nutritiondata.self.com website to look at the nutrition facts. Do not let it drive you crazy, though. Just eat balanced meals and a variety of foods.

Could be the amount of fat and your ability metabolize it, or it could be an intolerance. You have to test for yourself. And you need to test nearly all separately as many thing we call nuts are not nuts and completely unrelated things. Peanuts are legumes and almonds are seeds of a fruit related to stone fruit--peaches, plums, etc. and it's extremely common to be intolerant to peanuts which also happen to be one of the worst sources of gut harming anti nutrients along with wheat & soy.

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!

But if the oil was related to this problem (nuts), wouldn't it have gone by now?

I mean if the oil is caused by a certain food you'd think it would leave once stopping no?

I don't really know the answer. When I stop eating foods that make my skin more oily it usually takes about two weeks for the oil to go away. I have heard peanuts increase testosterone, though. Maybe your testosterone is a little bit elevated and needs to go back down.

It also takes a while for your lipid profile to change.

try experimenting with unsalted cashews only. I cant handle nuts but cashews seem to be actually clearing me. It's odd

That's because recently Nuts industries has putting a flavor enhancers salt that goes with the name Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), or (E 621 ).

I was getting about an extra 90g + of fat from just the nuts. Could that be it?
