A SHORT ACNE DIET GUIDE FOR NEWBS

28 posts in this topic

Purpose of this guide:

The reason I wrote this guide because their needs to be a short, easy to read, acne guide. I've seen some other ones that are like 1464556456 words long, and those look intimidating. This guide is easy to follow, and not as strict as other guides. You will be able to have cheat meals in this diet plan, a lot of other diet plans don't consist of a cheat meal.

I tried to keep this guide short, and to the point. Here it goes.

Part 1.

A combination of a good diet and a good regimen = clear skin. Why? You're fighting acne inside and outside, acne will die bitches. eusa_dance.gif

I have seen many posts on this forum asking does this break you out, can I eat this, is it ok if I have a slice of pizza.

Lots of times people are intimated by acne diets, they say "oh god I have to eat 489 apples and day and drink nothing but water." But in reality, an acne diet is much less severe.

Their is one secret to having a good acne diet, and that secret is avoid excessive amounts of sugar. Why do I have to avoid sugar Pika? Simple, because to process sugar your body releases insulin, and insulin spikes = messes with your hormones = ACNE.

Now one of the best things about an acne diet, is that it will clear your acne and it will also help you become healthier, aka help you lose weight, lose bf (body fat).

You can have 1 cheat meal a day and still be acne free. So if you're going out to McDonalds with your buddies, you won't have to be so worried.

What works for me is, I have one or two cheat meals a day usually, and at the end of the day, 4 or 5 hours before bed I would eat three or four red apples. And I would wake up with no new spots. Apples contain very powerful antioxidants and they cleanse your body.

End of part 1.

Part 2.

Alright it is really easy to be clear and to eat right, you just need to want it enough. If you want it enough, your acne will stop within a few days and with a good topical regimen you will be totally clear of active acne within a couple weeks, and redmarks should be gone in a couple months max with the right redmark regimen.

Here is a list of foods that cause acne in most people:

Soda - Lots of sugar, will greatly increase insulin levels and thus provoke acne. Get used to diet soda if you must have soda.

Chips - I found this out the hard way, usually chips contain a lot of sugar, I don't know why I ate them at school.

Anything fried - Anything fried usually has a lot of sugar, fat, and generally is unhealthy for you and should be avoided at all costs. French fries is a good example.

Fruit - Don't get me wrong, fruits are really healthy, but too much sugar that comes from anything is BAD.

Juice - Lots of sugar, definitely avoid.

Fast food- You can still eat fast food when you're out with your friends or something, just try to eat healthier fast food. Avoid a lot of french fries. Go for grilled chicken meals and avoid a lot of fried stuff.

More acne causing foods to be posted later.

Fruit has fiber which causes a smaller spike in insulin. You say you eat 4 apples at night, well they are loaded with sugar and yet you don't get acne from them.....

Most people eat meals consisting of various food groups. Protein will slow down spikes, as will combining foods with low and high GL's.

Other things you can do is take chromium GTF, which balances your sugar levels for a long time.

interesting, but I am still a little skeptical.

we should eat fruit for vitamins etc, I don't think we should leave it out, but i agree with the fried food and junk food sugary stuff


If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make,

who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?

Apples have very low amounts of sugar, if you avoid other foods that have a lot of sugar, the very little amount of sugar in apples won't do a thing.

Ah, and also, I only eat the red apples.

Alright that may be a little bad, but the antioxidant features of an apple are great. Just like that one faggot that came on here and was like Acne Free in 3 Days!!!11

Well apples won't cure any acne in three days, and won't do a thing for severe acne, but apples have a great effect on acne..

There are many types of sugar afaik.

is it fructose? I don't think the fructose sugar form causes acne at all.


These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):

* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)

* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002

* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)

* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):

* Strengthen/Repair GI - Immune health

Research:

* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).

* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

13-22g of sugar per apple isn't a small amount, especially if you eat 4. That's like having a Coke.

What's your point? I never said Coke was healthy. I said 4 apples worth of sugar will spike your blood glucose unless you are combining it with protein, high fiber foods(The apple peel does provide some), or somethign else that regulates it(I doubt it because he said he eats them just before bed). His whole point was to regulate blood sugar and eating a ton of fruit just before bed isn't the best way to do it.

There are many fruits/vegetables/juices that are high in antioxidants. Some have a lot more than apples.

Also, if you have one or two cheat meals a day, and then eat 4 apples at one sitting without gaining weight you should thank your parents for some great metabolism.

i may be wrong, but i don't think having cheatmeals on a daily basis such as mac donalds wouldn't do any harm...depends on the person i guess, but i wouldn't really recommend having big macs on a daily basis.. as for the antioxidants in fruits... most of us forget that most of the fruits have been sprouted and what not, unless you get the organic ones, otherwise i don't think the fruits are really that high in antioxidants and all the great stuff in them after they've been sprouted...but then again, id rather have a ''chemical apple'' than a chocolate bar...

sorry to say it man, but your diet is fine. Although the information you provide is not true, when I asked my dermatologist what foods was I supposed to eat n which should I avoid. He said none.!!!!!!! So I ate like I wanted to, pizzas, french fries, etc, man my skin looks good. Although a change in diet wold accelerate your results, no doubt about that. But Foods don't cause acne man.

ur kinda right..... oily skin, hormones, and irritated skin causes acne most of the time. The diet just increases it... A LOT! so in a way it does cause acne. and as a result of eating good acne foods, the acne goes down dramatically.

I talk with experience, having gone on the diet for 2 months now and my skin looks so much better. my acne isn't gone, don't get me wrong, but it is 70 percent better.

Doctors can be wrong. There is a definite link between acne and your diet. Hell, there's a link between any disease and your diet. It's just that the current medical mindset is to treat with drugs which rarely adresses the root of the problem just supresses it with some sort of chemical. FOR YOU, pizza and french fries and all sorts of other crap didn't cause acne but for a lot of us food is the major trigger. No one needs to tell me that acne and your diet is related, I and many others here know it from personal and experience.

Well, as for myself treatments are causing me to breakout. I stop the treatments all together and so far, the previous breakouts of the treatments that cause' me to breakout are drying out. So, I'm noticing my skin is going back to normal. I don't know how long it will take so far I'm pretty pleased.

I do include a healthy diet and taking vitamins to enhance my appearance. I never done this method of putting nothing on my face. But, inner cleansing in your body might help. Yes, somewhat people don't breakout when they eat fast food. Cause' they really don't think about it. But, as for myself I'm a paranoid freak I do think about it. I think everything could be in my head but, anywho everyone's is different.
