In Topic: Cured My Acne Of 6 Years By Cutting Out Sugar!

Thanks everyone!  WishClean, I've eaten most kinds of meat since becoming an omnivore again, fish, chicken, turkey, pork, beef, etc.  I stay away from weird stuff like bologna and hot dogs, haha, but I eat most anything else.  I did initially have some digestive problems, but they cleared up pretty quickly.  It may depend on the meat you're eating... for me beef was an adjustment even after working back into chicken.  

From a lot of what I've read on the acne boards, people are often identifying trigger foods and things that make them break out, but with meat I'm pretty sure what I wasn't eating was causing the acne.  I'm no nutrition expert, but my guess is that in 9 years of being veg (and w/o supplements), I probably racked up some deficiencies.  

Have you noticed any improvements since reintroducing meat?

Hmm, I'm not sure if I noticed an improvement from reintroducing meat because I've been doing so many things to help my skin and it's improving, but it could be from other factors. I mostly eat ham and chicken, sometimes turkey, and it helps me reduce the amount of grains I eat. I used to eat more grains when I was vegetarian because I was hungry, but now I try to fill up on ham, vegetables, and sometimes fish. 

I haven't tried beef yet. Do you cook it yourself? 

I don't generally cook my own meat, since I have a meal plan at school.  If you haven't tried beef, I would encourage you to! :)  May just be me, but I felt like my body/skin really appreciated it.

Hi, Hopeforthebest, I do eat all types of grains, but they make up a much smaller percent of my diet now.  I won't eat bread by itself generally, but for convenience I eat things made with some grain.  I'm more careful about wheat than I am with gluten free or low gluten grains like oats and quinoa.
