I'm pretty much at the end of my rope with acne.
I'm 16, female, very active (exercise everyday), don't eat dairy or meat but I do eat eggs so I won't become deficient in B12.
Here's what I eat daily:
Breakfast: 2 eggs with sea salt and pepper, green smoothie consisting of baby spinach, banana, unsweetened hemp milk and some kind of fruit, usually blueberries or strawberries.
Lunch: salad (romaine) with organic asian sesame dressing and cherry tomatoes from my own tiny little garden.
Throughout the day, I'll snack on cherries, almonds or dried cranberries.
I also drink 52 oz of water daily. I don't eat or drink ANYTHING other than what I just listed. No fruit juices or anything like that.
As for topicals, I'm using Desert Essence Daily Cleaning Pads with Tea Tree Oil and that's it, but every once and a while I do a honey mask (raw, organic honey).
So as you can see, I eat pretty cleanly, get plenty of fresh air, sunshine and exercise daily and I also tale 50mg of zinc gluconate every morning.
Yet I still break out.
I don't know what to do at this point. I feel so hopeless. I need help.
way too little protein and fat in comparison with the fructose intake. wayyyyyyyyyyy to little.
I eat eggs and lentils-both of which are very high in protein... just sayin'. Plus I'm pretty small, so I really don't need that much protein.
I know what I'm doing.
No, you don't.
You eat 2 eggs a day...that is about 12 grams of protein.
An entire pound of dried lentils is only around 100 grams of protein, and plant protein, at that.
If you are only eating a bowl, I would guess that would about 20 grams of protein...30 grams total (like someone else said)...that is not enough protein for a 7 year old, let alone a teenager.
