this is the result of two years of hard work. I've been through hell finding what works for me but I believe I am finally here
Aright so I've given you guys my story quite a few times now so here's the tl;dr
TL:DR I Fed my carb addiction left over from pre paleo through fruit and starchy tubers without noticing how bad it was, think about how much fruit and sweet potatoes you eat a day if on paleo. probably over 100g of carbs per day via fructose and sweet potatoes. Thats fine with a good gut but wont work if its recovering.
I've had to go pretty strict now, I used to still eat aged cheese (2 years) cheddar almost lactose free, as well as things like tomatoes and onions. Slowly I realized, fruit were messing me up. so I cut those out recently. Then I learned its not just fruit, but I had begun on the right track. It's FODMAPS, which encourage to SIBO. There have been two trends on this board, people getting rid of their acne by going paleo, and a long time, fructose free was a big deal before the paleo wave. No one really seemed to think of combining them except some anti-candida people and they only cut out fruit. the thing is, there are molecules other than fructose which will have the same effect on your stomach.
I have started eating the diet which I have linked My face is much less inflamed than it has ever been. I will admit, this is a bit boring but IT WORKS, and on top of that, I feel really good. Right now I'm really only eating
meat, green beans, carrots, eggplant, some butter cooked with meat, a good amount of coconut oil, and olive oil. maybe once a week ill eat some broccoli and cauliflower for the nutrients even though it sets me back just a tiny bit
. I am glad that I have finally combined my knowledge to cure my acne and am excited to see the results of the rest of the board with this method. I hope that in sharing this with the rest of the people on here who have chronic moderate to sever acne, we may have found the most applicable cure. I await your results, friends.
