In Topic: If You're Even A Tiny Bit Lactose Intolerant, Don't Play With Dairy

Have you tried life without outmeal? That's an awkward combination of huge carbs and fat.


In Topic: Low Carb Question, And Blackheads?

23 April 2014 - 02:53 AM

If things are going well I don't think there's need for a drastic change. Blackheads just might take longer to get rid of.

 

It will probably help, but restricting yourself too much could open some bad doors too. I've never had a problem with beans though.


In Topic: Do You Agree?

It's plain as day for everyone who has even tried a natural lifestyle. People without the self-control to make a lifestyle change are going to debate around in circles all day because it's the only thing they're good at. Not even worth arguing anymore, I don't even visit the other forums (except The Lounge) because there's no real information there.

 

As for the bias, I think it's obvious and necessary. I don't have a problem with Dan saying what he wants because it's his site, and in the long-term it's created a community of people who can discuss it.


In Topic: Acne And Masturbation

Just don't do it. Find out for yourself.

 

If you can't manage to even test your own theory for a few weeks / months, then it's absolutely a problem (acne related or not, it could be controlling your life).


In Topic: I Eat Far Too Much Sugar.

27 March 2014 - 09:12 PM

All sugar is the same for me, if we needed fruit then I would have died 5 years ago, and my skin certainly wouldn't have cleared up. In my experience even a little bit of sugar throws me off balance because the body starts using a different fuel source (sugar as opposed to fat), which takes time and energy to switch back-and-forth. While this is happening, it's party time for all hormones (good and bad) because our liver is far too busy dealing with the sugar to check the guestlist.

 

Avoiding sugar is not an issue for me now, because I don't crave it. I certainly used to though, because my body thought I needed it. This kind of craving is normal for anything that gives us a temporary energy boost.

 

Refined or unrefined has no difference. In fact I prefer straight alcohol to sugar because it goes through your system faster.

 

All I know is that in the 80's every bodybuilder drank milk like crazy, like 1 gallon every day and no one had even one pimple..

 

Hah, man. I can't speak for the 80s but all the bodybuilders I know today have terrible skin and their hair is falling out. Of course there's more to blame now than milk, but it struck me as an odd example.
