Consistency And Dedication: Update On My Progress (Before, After, And Now Pictures)

09 March 2014 - 08:42 PM

Last year I wrote to y'all about how a gluten and sugar free, paleo diet with mineral supplements changed my skin. A year later I can tell you that's still the case. My skin isn't perfect, but this is the best complexion I've had since I was 12!

 

The only supplement I take now is magnesium because without it my skin becomes fragile, flakey, and I break out easily.

 

I eat lots of leafy greens, meat, and fat. I eat raw or semi-cooked liver twice a month, sometimes oftener.

If I can do it, you can too!

 

EDIT: Oh, and I only wash my face like twice a week. In the 2014 pics, I haven't washed my face in like three days. 


Low Sex Drive

30 August 2013 - 02:43 PM

Who else sufferes from a low sex drive?

 

I've found a connection between my chronically poor libido and my skin problems. Will discuss soon, but first I want to see how common low sex drive is among acne sufferers.

 

Please share!


Resistance Training Breaks Me Out: Help

04 June 2013 - 04:56 PM

I like my body to have that lean, toned look. To get that I have to do resistance training. Resistance training breaks me out.

 

What to do?

 

Do we have any fitness junkies here who tend to break out from strength training? What have you done to solve this problem?

 


Raw Liver For Optimum Health

23 May 2013 - 04:42 PM

To improve my health, I'm ditching all manufactured supplements and opting for raw liver. 150 grams, once a week.

 

Why liver and why raw?

 

  • Liver is one of the most concentrated sources of Vitamin A
  • It contains all the B vitamins in abundance, particularly vitamin B12 if consumed raw
  • It's one of our best sources of folic acid
  • Contains a highly usable form of iron
  • Contains trace elements such as zinc and chromium
  • Liver is our best source of copper
  • Rich in CoQ10, a nutrient that is especially important for cardio-vascular function if consumed raw.

 

This evening I ate raw liver for the first time. For palatability, I cut it in very tiny pieces and mixed it in a bowl of cooked vegetables and cooked meat. It was a tasty supper.

 

I'll be eating raw liver once a week with the intention of improving general health, including skin. I'll take photographs and track what benefits, if any, raw liver adds to my complexion.

 

Have you had any experiences with raw liver?

 

Update 1 - June 13,  2013 Keratosis pilaris (tiny bumps that prodcue white, grain-like sebum) on my chin has greatly reduced. It can no be felt and a few bumps can only be seen when my face is practically pressed to the mirror. See below for details.
