#3413276 Does Anyone Need A Friend To Help Deal With This Together?

Posted by FaithBox on 10 February 2014 - 12:29 PM

Im guilty of this too.  However, it isn't going to help thinking about your next breakout at that moment.  I need to start taking more risks.  One thing that kills me is what if...?  What if I would have done this?  Or went to that party?  I see people that have horrible acne with girlfriends and partying all the time.  I think its all confidence.  If it doesn't bother you then it may not bother others.  Its always not having fun having giant red spots everywhere but it always get the best of me.  I want to reverse that.  I want it to no longer affect me. Takes time, I would imagine, but always better to try and stay positive.  We all have our down days, and that's when a lot of us will post cause we feel the way we do.  My advice is find a hobby and a supportive group of friends.  Good luck everyone.

Make him a green smoothie with kale and strawberries everyday.  Have him eat salmon.  Lots of broccoli.  Tons of water.

I wouldn't know best, a lot of the people on this forum know good substitutes.  I do not consume any type of dairy/milk.  I can say almond milk and that's about it.  Unsweetened of course.  Milk is one of the worst things for acne

Music.  Exercise.  Find a hobby that focuses 100% of your attention.  Look at all the successful people with acne and scars.  Even if you do care (which we all do) you have to act like you don't care.  Im still working on that part.  It is a gradual process but at least you have 2 arms and 2 legs.  Your 5 senses.  You have a heart.  There are lots of people who can look past peoples flaws and see the good in someone.  Good luck




#3411410 Good Things To Treat Pimples

sorry I meant im prone to sunburn more when I use Clearasil.  I hate having to use sunscreen all the time.  I tried coconut oil tonight only for 1 pimple and it is helping I think

I switched about a month ago or so to just using a cleanser and moisturizer.  My skin has been getting better but pimples take longer to go away.  I was using Clearasil with salicylic acid but read about its bad for your skin over time, and it makes me get sunburn quick.  I need like a spot treatment type thing for pimples but without all the harsh ingredients.  Salicylic acid worked great btw so idk...




#3408358 Paleo Round 2

Posted by FaithBox on 16 January 2014 - 10:19 PM

Here is an example of what I eat everyday and I workout 3-5 times a week and this is enough to recover and make it through my workouts.

 

8:00 AM - 3 Eggs, 1 square of dark chocolate 85-90%, 3-4 cups of kale blended with 10 strawberries, 1 spoonful of coconut oil (on eggs)

 

11:00 AM - Ground Turkey/Chicken Breast with avocado oil on top, 1 avocado

 

2:00 pm - Ground Turkey/Chicken Breast with 2-3 cups of broccoli with spoonful of coconut oil or avocado oil, 1 square dark chocolate 85-90%

 

4:00 PM - Apple with spoonful of coconut oil, mixed pecans, cashews, almonds, pistachios ( about 2 handfuls)

 

5:30 PM - (Snack) Epic Bar.  Not 100% paleo but very close.  Look them up they are very good.  Expensive though.

 

8:00 PM - (Post Workout) Sweet Potato, Ground Turkey/Chicken Breast/Baked Salmon, A few blueberries, Spoonful coconut oil, A few pumpkin seeds

 

10:00 PM (Tiny snack) Pumpkin seeds, Handful of mixed nuts (Pumpkin seeds help me sleep)

 

You can be paleo and have a lot of carbs like above.  Just make sure you get a lot of fat.  Avocado oil, coconut oil, and nuts.  My skin is clearing up very well from following this diet.  I feel greater then ever before and after workouts.  On my non workout days I tend to drop some carbs though.  Either an apple or sweet potato.  You can always tweak some foods too for different times.  Whether these foods are really "paleo" or not does not really matter I think.  They are all very healthy unless you have an intolerance to certain nuts, eggs, and maybe apples.  I am still uncertain on apples myself but I will do some tests.
