Yeah... it sounds very demanding! How can you even combine this with a social life/work? I really DO feel like diet plays a role in acne, but I don't believe that it can just solve it all. It could make it better for most people and maybe cure for others, but I just don't know. For what price, right?
I could definitely exercise in the morning, but I have problems with the not-eating-after-4-pm thing. I am working at that time.. I can't take 5 meals to work... that's just crazy.
I would love to try this diet, but I'm very sure I won't stick with it anyway. Seppo from acneeinstein said that you have to do a diet you can stick with, and avoid your personal triggers. As a person, I already eat pretty healthy, but I can always add in more vedges. I just don't want to go crazy on the diet thing, it would make me depressed for sure. I will just do it my way I think and add in more vedges and the right supplements (inositol and a multivitamin). I do not need the refined sugars, but I really feel like I'm allowed to eat my home made buckwheat cookies sweetened with raisins/honey/whatever.
And I think I'm naturally high in testosterone. I just think so because my skin is such an oil slick all the time, even when being on the pill (and I had ovarian cysts; pcos). So even eating extremely healthy won't get rid of those amounts of testosterone. But we'll see! I obviously have to quit birth control soon (in august) and we'll see what happens next! I just bought my spearmint tea, but I'm just not sure it's the right type of mint... it's the mint that is always served when you order mint tea! Is that right?
i wouldn't know the name of the minth because i picked it up myself from a field but the teas combo can make a real difference.
and yes the diet is almost not worth even trying.
personally for 3years i've been on this diet:
1.absolutely no sugar(no cakes,cookies, nothing)
2.nothing canned/tinned/prepared (no salami,sausages, etc, no mustard,ketchup,etc. no bought bread > just homemade whole bread)
3.no potatoes/rice or anything like this type of big carb
4.as less heated oil as possible
5.others, i can't remember them now, garlic almost daily like i mentioned, propolis daily, you get the idea, i had probably the most healthy diet in my city lol
oh, and with almost no exceptions (maybe on my birthday some alcohol. did i mention no alcohol, no coffe, etc?)
and with almost NO SIGNIFICANT RESULTS. (only temporary, especially when i lost a lot of weight)
so now hopefully people will understand why i argued against alternativista or others that claim a healthy diet is the cure for acne.
