Treating Yourself On Anti-Acne Diet

26 April 2013 - 09:39 PM

So, I've been on an anti-acne diet for years and I stick to it. The only problem I have is going out to eat. I have been restricting my social life in order to keep up the diet and avoid going out to eat. Normally, I manage to get around this by going out only on very rare occasions and only going to buffets or a place where I can eat baked chicken/fish and vegetables.

 

I have a friend who wants to go to CherryBerry. It's a yogurt place. I am wondering since this would be a rare treat which of the options might be the least damaging. I could go with either

1) No sugar added yogurt (this would have milk and splenda).

2) Dairy-free sorbet (so no milk but 19-20 grams of sugar)

3) Greek yogurt (both milk and sugar but potentially a little less sugar and greek yogurt is supposedly even better with the probiotics and protein).

 

Any thoughts?

 

Unfortunately, they do not have a dairy-free, no sugar added option.

My plan would be to have 1 serving, slowly enjoy it and go right back to my diet.


Prescription Drug Coverage For Acne Meds

22 January 2012 - 08:46 PM

Does anyone know of any prescription drug plans I can get that would at least partailly cover acne meds (like generic differin, retin a, generic accutane)? I have Dean's individual health plan that I pay for myself every month (and it's good medical insurance that I like) but I have no prescription drug coverage. When I tried to add the Dean prescription drug rider last summer, my "request was declined" because I've been treated for acne and anxiety in the past. Grrrrr. So, I've been looking into trying to find just a prescription drug plan and I thought while I was at it I'd love to find a drug plan that would pay for prescription acne drugs.

Thanks everyone
