Good Foods/Bad Foods

36 posts in this topic

I read everywhere where people have problems with certain foods and stuff etc and some are fine for everyone. I was wondering if you could list for me What Foods, Fruits and Veg are good for acne and What ones are not, and which ones are 50 50 for some people... I dont eat meat anymore (Because for obv reasons its not good for you) I drink only water now, and V8 when i get it.

Thanks

Lol meat is obviously bad for you? Please explain because I obviously missed what was so obvious about it.

Just seems kind of funny that your hating on all meat when out of all the liquids besides water to drink you choose V8. Close to 700mg of sodium per serving, hardly any antioxidants found in a normal serving of veggies after bottling. Do you wonder why they aren't allowed to make health claims on the label? Why they have to resort to ads?

Sorry to be so harsh but a lot of people here seem to have taken the other extreme as far as food goes. Yes milk isn't that great for you in the states due to bad practices but substituting it with equal amounts of soy has just as many problems. Whole books have been written on the dangers by vegetarians that know better(Search Amazon). Yes, some meat is bad. Despite what many say chicken fed on grass and grains are just as healthy as those fed on grass. It's when you add animal feed into the mix when it gets bad. The amount of hormones found in a steak is thousands of times less than what a female produces, yes thousands, and most countries don't allow even that.

Here's some great advise I made up just now and it applies to anything. If you get frostbite, it would be very stupid to pour very hot water on yourself to thaw it out. The right answer is always in between.

the reason meat is bad for you and most of todays food, if you have heard of dr laraign day, kevin troudo, you will know what im talking about.

Any kind of meat isnt good for you, it has pestasides and all kinds of diseases in it. THe animals eat pesticides in their food, crap, etc and goes to their muscles and we eat their muscles. Theres more to it but overall its just not good for you, its whats causing most of the diseases today. Back then people were more whole fruits and veg, and grain, plant base diet and today people are downing on meat. And I belive everything they have said because I have had cancer, when I was 14 and I had to go through chemo and radiation for 4 months. I have acne now. I used so much crap it dont work.

I finally decided to start drinking only water, fruits and veg, and my face although its not clear, I hardly get white heads and my face feels normal but it still is crap. But I feel better, Im not tired. Your body looses about 8-10 glasses of water a day. So many people are dehydrated, manurished, and stressed from todays technology. Theres way more to it, she basically deals with health and cancer and basically the food we eat is all chemicals which is true esp todays fast food. Check it out. You might not get it but I changed alot of stuff and I feel alot better and I plan on getting some whole fruit, min, veg called ruby reds, and her fibre cleanse. I think based off what she has said about the cleansing is it will help your face because it cleans out the body etc and your colon. And I was thinking when I eat alot more and I mean alot to where I have to go to the bathroom, atleast once-twice a day, my face gets better. But I usually go every other day or every two days. Kinda said. I go number one fine because I drink 8-10 glasses of natural spring water a day. My face gets really good, close to nothing and then back to crap. Now in my opinion having cancer and eating all that junk when I grew up, not really a healthy food, staying up late, not drinking any water. It eventually caught up to me. But it is reversable, most diseases are reversable but they dont tell you that. Now the way I grew up is a result of my acne. So if I get some proper nutrition on top of my daily ruby reds and fibre cleanse Im sure my face will clear up.

Check Dr Day out, and Kevin Troudo. I got his book and I tell everyone about him but they either dont believe it or just lazy and its those people that dont take the time to read this or simple because their on a infomercial or their busy or lazy. Those people to me are close minded and ignorant. This stuff is important. But thats me.

Lol, first of all your history about only eating plants and whatnot is wrong, completely(The lobrary is a wonderful source of info on history). Secondly, if you want to argue about pesticides, you have to make that argument for EVERY SINGLE FOOD that isn't organic(Organic is also a very abritrary term and people can get away with a lot by saying thier product is organic and natural when it is far from it). Are you willing to do that because I will hold you to it in the rest of your posts. If you believe that all meat has diseases then why did you eat raw meat?

Why do people cook the meat I wonder?

Trust me I've heard what you've had to say 100x on this board, it's nothing new.

Also, you know first hand what chemo does to you and yet I don't see any blame for your problems on that.

I'll also say that getting cancer at 14 and blaming it on food makes you seem like you're reaching for straws.

This board is getting more and more radical. It seems the days of smart arguments by posters like sweetjade and the like are reaching an end(If she leaves I think this board is going to turn into a huge shitstorm of misinformation). What many fail to consider is that health is wholistic. Diet is only one link. Diet alone will not make you healthy. Exercise alone will not make you healthy nor will mental health or genetics. It seems like the diet/wholistic forum is turned into the diet only forum. There is a multiplier effect when you add all these together that is much greater than any individual one.

Organic means they're fed on food grown without the use of pesticides.

Free range means they're allowed to run around outside like all animals should be, not cooped up inside little cages.

People are doing other things on this board other than liver flushes, megadosing on b5, accutane, antibiotics, etc. Taking out a lot of things that are unhealthy from your diet will help everything, including skin, it has and is helping me at the moment (but I have been doing it for only like 2 weeks so I do not have sufficient experience to post), but there are some who have totally cleared their acne. You may say this is not so, and you will eat whatever you want, that is fine, nobody is telling you to stop eating what you like. We are just experimenting, and for some it is working. So maybe the person who posted above would like to as well. I agree sweetjade is very knowledgeable. And by the way, we are not saying diet is the cause of acne, nor are we saying exercise will cure acne, or are we saying only meat has pesticides in them.

What is organic food?

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, to

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.

I agree, and that is very unfortunate.  I speak of what I know and if I ever found a supplement, liver detox, or did enough liver flushes to help me, I would speak just as strongly and passionately about those as well.  In the mean time I research, try to see if there's validity in other's research or theories, and try to offer what I happen to currently know the most about.  If I ever found a liver flush or detox to be beneficial to me I would mention it, but again, I am concerned about those that are much younger than I foolishly jumping on them without reasearching (for days or weeks) on the subject.  I also don't always suggest supplements over dietary changes because well...diet in the long run is cheaper if they are capable of doing it 100% through diet and exercise.  However whatever their method of treatment is,  supplements, medication, or diets I will offer what knowledge I have, but I too am missing those knowledgable members that ustilized other alternative treatment methods.

For me.

Bad food

- Bread (not sure about whole grain)

- Dairy

- Bananas

- Guinness or an excess of beer

- Tinned tuna

- Pasta

Good

- All vegetables

- All fruits (except bananas) esp. bitter fruits as they help the liver/kidneys

- Olive oil

The worst thing about my diet is the fact I cant really eat any grains. im experimenting with chinese food -just having meat with vegs (no rice or anything wheaty of course!!). Going ok so far.

Sean, I think you're on the right road and I hope for your continued success and recovery. You should be very proud of yourself for overcoming so many obstacles at such a young age. You're also expressing your beliefs in a very kind, gentle way - and there's a LOT to be said for that. You are wise beyond your years!

Sean, thanks so much for sharing your life experiences. I wish you complete and total recovery and healing.

It's funny that you mentioned the cancer thing. People like to downplay the pesticides and chemicals that are in our food and water supply. While I don't believe we should be paranoid, I do believe we should be informed. My grandmother had 8 siblings and they grew up near a cotton mill; a place that could probably be described as a cancer cluster waiting to happen. Evidently they dumped all sorts of toxic chemicals into the water supply and guess what? Out of 8 siblings, guess how many *DIDN'T* die of cancer? 2, that's how many. My grandmother just died last year but guess what? She had CRIPPLING arthritis just about her whole adult life. Her hands were totally deformed and she was in terrible pain all the time. Although she was never diagnosed with cancer, she still had an immune system breakdown and her quality of life was terrible.

Again......all due to bleaching agents and other toxic chemicals being dumped in water.

It is good to be equipped with information; knowledge is key. If people decide not to eat meat, imho it's up to them. I'm not a vegetarian but when i do eat meat, I do try to eat meat that is free range as much as possible.

About the water supply, also having chlorine in the water is bad too. Basically any chemical in our body is bad basically. And to add Milk isnt good for you either and it doesnt help your bones grow. Watched the news a week ago and they did studies showing bown growth with and without milk, it did nothing not to mention their are chemicals in the dairy we eat. The steps from above go for any condition so cancer is just one out of many many.

Sorry to hear about your family and grandmother. That sucks so much. Thanks for your responce and good luck to you.

So what's worse, pathogens in the water, or chlorine in the water from which our bodies can probably take the Cl- ions to use in the nervous system etc. ?

They can saftly filter those things out.  It make work for one thing but its still a chemical that was not made to be in our bodies.  Swimming in chlorinated water is bad too because it gets in your skin and in your blood stream. No matter what, its a chemical.

It may clean the water but like anything with chemicals, it will eventually lead to side affects and disease (conditions).

Chlorinated drinking water is directly responsible for several problems including many cases of cancer in humans.

Animal studies by the Environmental Protection Agency have shown that drinking chlorinated water caused blood cholesterol to switch from high-density lipoproteins (the good guys) to low-density lipoproteins (the bad guys). Why the EPA doesn’t inform the public that our drinking water is contributing to the number one killer in our country, I’ll never understand.

But there’s more! In a back issue (May/June 1992) of Chemical Research In Toxicology, there is a report of the discovery that ingested chlorinated water alters and destroys essential unsaturated fatty acids!!

When water is treated with chlorine the compound "hypochlorite" is created. This compound creates free radicals which oxidize these essential fatty acids and cause them to turn rancid!

Remember, these fatty acids that are being destroyed are essential fatty acids. That means that the body must have them to survive and they’re not something the body can make.

They have to come from food.

Free radicals being created by chlorinated water are not only decreasing the ability of the body to get these essential fatty acids from food, but they’re also creating dangerous toxins that have been directly linked to liver malfunction, weakening of the immune system, changes in the arteries and alterations of cellular DNA.
