#3404333 Studies Show That Millions Of People Do Not Convert Beta-Carotene Into Vitami...

Posted by PlumpCaboose on 30 December 2013 - 07:44 AM

You do realize that article was written by a company that sells vitamins? Of course they're going to say more people need to take vitamins. They're selling a product to make money. The average person doesn't need to take any vitamins if they eat a healthy balanced diet.


Be careful what you read online.

You definitely need to put your diet into a website like Cron-o-meter to make sure you're getting enough fats, carbs, vitamins etc in your diet. An essential fatty acid deficiency can also cause acne. Soybean oil is actually the main source of Vitamin E in the average American's diet. Vitamin E is critical for healthy skin and digesting fats. You actually need about 40g of fat per day so your body (and skin) can repair itself. Fats (Specifically Omega 6) are actually a vital component of skin cells as the fat you digest is used to make new cells all over the body. A low-fat, low-carb diet will cause a lot of hormone problems as well. I speak from experience having tried a low-fat, low-carb diet and I lost a lot of weight but still didn't cure my acne. I had the same problem with vegetable oils causing inflammation and acne. But avoiding foods is not the answer. You need to correct the problem so you can eat normally. Unfortunately, it's difficult to figure out exactly what the problem is. I believe it's some lipid metabolism problem involving delta 6 desaturase not converting linoleic acid into gamma linolenic acid properly. I offered you my help through PM, but you didn't reply so I'll say no more.

#3382165 Caveman Regimen Results So Far.

Posted by PlumpCaboose on 12 September 2013 - 01:09 PM

The Caveman Regimen is honestly one of the stupidest things to do if your skin is used to being washed/moisturized daily. It's an extreme option that's obviously going to negatively affect your skin while your skin adjusts to the lack of constant washing. What you should do is gradually ease off your skincare regimen day by day and let your skin have time to adapt. The goal should be to have normal, healthy skin by just washing your face morning and night like everyone else does. Going to extreme measures is only going to make things worse. You have to compare yourself to other people. What do you do that other people with clear skin don't do? For one, most people don't need to use any chemicals on their face to have clear skin. It's just naturally able to defend and repair itself. That should be your goal. Treat acne internally, not externally.

why pears?

yes,could it be just fat or fat and/or other things like gluten,soy etc?


Because pears are the lowest glycemic index fruit that have the most fiber. You could also eat strawberries or apples.
