In Topic: Diet Is The Cure For Acne.....rofl

03 February 2014 - 03:37 PM

This section of the forums is really good comedy, but that's just it, nothing else. You have one major flaw in your diet curing acne theory:


You think that every human being has perfect genetics and wrong diet just causes all the problems, acne etc. Listen, diet has no effect in your skin, it's all genetics, some people has just bad cards to play with, that's it. Don't blame food for your shitty genetics! Life is ruthless, deal with it.


In one way you have a point. In others you don't.


I follow science, not opinions. If you have something to say then be prepared to prove it with crediable studies on the said subject.

In Topic: No Sugar Buddies?

01 November 2013 - 08:29 AM

Actual adults have a "fat tooth" not a "sweet tooth" commonly found in children less than 12. Even though you can temporarly satisfy your craving with sugary items; the body is never satisfied therefore requests more. Its the fat content we crave. Why do you think so many people are addicted to fast food, and other food options they know are wrong and will kill them eventually, but eat it anyway? Its because they cannot overcome their fat tooth cravings.


 I learned this from a health care conference for healthcare professionals such as myself.

If you try to eliminate the sugar your body will crave more fat, and or attain its sugar from fructose. Now, that becomes a problem if you have a fructose intolerance/sensitivity as I do. But you are choosing to eliminate that too...


Not saying this can't help but... its extreme and the odds are against you.


Let me give you an analogy so to speak.


One could assume that the reason patient X has Diabetes type I because he drinks a Coke a day since he was 5 years old.This assumption is wrong because Diabetes Type I is autoimmune disorder in which the body does not produce insulin (its congential-born with it). Eliminating sugar will do nothing for this patient- they will continue to have high blood sugar  from lack of insulin. The same goes for Diabetes type II often mistakenly reffered to as "sugar diabetes". Elimminating sugar *might help* but will not resolve the problem. Diabetes type II is caused from the body's own tissues being resistant to its own insulin or from lack of insulin production. Education on nutrition is a must for both clients as the majority of blood sugar rise comes from carbs, not sugar, especially the empty simple carbohydrates. Eliminating these will help, but wont cure. Its chronic.


Now, your plan to me anyway sounds like my analogy. Sounds convincing, and good, but its not entirely correct. Elminating the junk will help, but all sugar is not practical; o healthy. Your body runs off it; it needs it.


It also still doesn't address the underlying problem. Which will be evident if you continue to break out.

Eat nutrient dense foods in moderation, skip the processed goods. Heck, white bread along has more sugar than a snickers candy bar. Choose wisely and eat smart.

So, just a for warning.


People get addicted to fast foods because of the salt and sugar content, not the fat.


When high amounts of sugar are consumed the brain releases a load of feel good checmicals. This is where the addiciton comes from.

most here already do limit sugar consumption. That's basic to health and acne.


Limit and moderate yes, i totally agree.


However, in the original post, a reference was made to cutting fruit out. Really?


Cutting out a highly nutrient dense food item isn't healthy. Being overly restrictive in any sense isn't healthy.


For sure i can understand if someone has an intolerance to fruit then by all means do what you go to do.


I generally think too many people go to extremes when it comes to seeking out solutins to acne. I can understand it drives us crazy but the answer is often somewhere in the middle.


Balance, sustainability, moderation.


The original post is none of these things.

Hi everyone,


I've had this on-again off-again thing with sugar. I have a major sweet tooth, to put it lightly. But I want it gone. I'm getting rid of sweets in ALL forms: no baked goods, no soda, no diet soda, no ice cream, no sweetened starbucks, no fruit, no sweet potatoes, no honey, agave... nothing sweet. 


This is obviously the most extreme version of a "no sugar" elimination, but all my past efforts of no-sugar have failed, and I think it's in part due to allowing myself to have sweet things WHILE going through this process, but after I stop having cravings, I'll add in things like fruits and sweet potatoes. 


If you're interested in doing some variation of sugar detox, I'd love the support. I started a thread in personal regimen logs and maybe you could post in my log and it'll be dual/multiple-person log on going no-sugar. The log currently has a few ramblings on going no-dairy as well, but I'm mainly focusing on sugar at this point (having no dairy is easy for me now). 


Please let me know! We could also just have this be an update thread as well. But I'm not interested in debating back and forth on whether or not diet affects acne. Just a support thread. Makes no difference where the thread is located.

I will just say this is very illogical.

In Topic: The Extreme Caveman Regimen - 100% Guranteed You Will Clear Your Acne (Only F...

23 September 2013 - 05:42 AM

i disagree. I tried a caveman lifestyle (eating 100 % paleo, rarely washing face and body) for 3-4 months, and it was all placebo... acne started clearing up and then BAM returned.

What fats do you cook with if u do not mind me asking?


Eaiting 100% Paleo?


I am amazed at this as an Paleo diet isn't Paleo.


Our food is so fundenmentally different now compared to thousand of years ago. Agriculture has changed food a hell of a lot. Therefore, Paleo is nothing more than clever name to an overly restrictive diet program.
