So recently In my other blog I talked about how i was going to eat low gi foods as well avoiding caffeine, dairy, processed and oily foods.
I started eating low gi foods such as rye for breakfast and then barley for lunch as well as blueberries and chicken.
However my acne did not get better i was still getting more and more acne. After surfing this site,I found success stories on a link suggested by alternavista- might be the wrong the speelling. Alternavista- is such an amazing woman and her story is incredibly inspirational so if you feel really depressed from acne check out her story.
One of the success stories was by a man who went on alkaline diet. Acne can be caused by high acidic foods, suprisingly things like citrus fruits are recommends as they alkalise in the blood. However when it comes to SOME acne sufferers , citrus and nightshades should be avoided as they can spark inflammation in some- so if you' ve noticed getting acne after eating these then just dont eat them
Alkaline diet cuts out all grains and legumes. Foods such as rye, barley, wheat, rice, blueberries , meat are acidic in nature therefore consuming them causing acidic blood- acne. which explains why. This is explains why on the paleo diet some people cure their acne as the paleo cuts out all these. However I will be eating meat and fish which are only chicken and salmon for protein.
I will also be cutting out nightshades as this appears to be a trigger for me nightshade are eggplant/aubergine, tomato, peppers and potatoes - Not SWEET POTATOES. The purple skinned sweet potato known as the japanese sweet potato has a muc low gi than the normal sweet potato but they are difficult to find
Alkaline diet - Fruits should be eaten in moderation best ones to eat are : figs, avocadoes kiwi, limes, lemons, grapefruit. Try drinkin a lemon with water
