Some people can handle oats while not being able to handle gluten/wheat so you'll have to try it out for yourself and see if it affects you. Banana Bread is made of wheat so if you're avoiding wheat, you'll want to be avoiding all breads(aside from those blah overpriced gluten-free things).

yeah.. i'd definitely stick with the 'old fashioned' oatmeal as minny suggests, as opposed to instant oatmeal, which breaks me out. i don't have trouble with the old fashioned, slow cooking whole oats.

So is Quacker Oatmeal not good for you?  I thought whole grains was good for you?

I have the quacker oatmeal, the assorted kind (3 kinds i think) that you boil hot water and add alittle etc.  Isnt that instant?  Whats the instant/Packets? your talking about.

yep - you're eating the instant, which would likely cause breakouts for me. the 'assorted' varieties are flavored with lotsa sugar, which is definitely a problem for me. check the ingredients.

I buy the 100% oats in bulk form. They are not expensive and are the best you just add water and raisins or apples.

Okay.. so generally when people say to avoid wheats, they mean breads pretty much?

That doesnt include oats, or flax?

Well muffins and all other bread related products(bagels, donuts, etc.) that may include flax also have wheat...


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.
