First off the most important thing for me is diet. I cut out breads, cereals, chips, dairy, candy, fruit juice, frozen meals, junk, and whatever I think is going to cause a spike. My carbs are 1-2 servings of fruit and 5-6 servings of vegetables daily, brown rice, quinoa in its normal form or the pasta kind, millet, and occassionaly raw beans, and sometimes sweet potatoes. For protein I eat grass fed meats and chicken, no nitrite turkey, cage-free eggs, and raw walnuts (soaked after bought). For fats I like coconut and extra virgin olive oil, flax seed, and walnuts. I do use the regimen and when you do use it follow it EXACTLY. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. I only drink water, green tea, and occassionaly V8 fusion antioxidant plus but not much of it at all. Drinking with meals is not good for digestion anyways.
Diet is the key to beating acne. The best way is to develop a three part diet. Good carbs, protein, and fats are needed. Healthy sources of carbs are fruits, vegetables, brown or wild rice, quinoa, millet, sweet potatoes (Can be starchy so be careful not too much). Protein: grass fed meat and chicken, cage-free eggs, walnuts (should be raw and soaked after bought), turkey (no nitrites). Fats: coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, flax seed, walnuts. Meals can be made in so many different ways with just using these foods. These foods aren't the only ones out there, there are so many more.
Acne is an internal problem that shows external symptoms. When you eat foods that cause an insulin spike, unecessary hormones are released during it. Your body is then not able to detoxify these hormones because it is busy enough working on toxins and necessary hormones no longer needed. People are unaware what causes an insulin spike to happen. High sugar foods, moldy foods, high unecessary fat foods, and wheat can cause a spike. Yes wheat is not good for your body. Your body does not care that the bag of bread says 100 percent whole wheat and whole grain it turns it into sugar when you eat it.
