::HEYELP!::: What am I supposed to eat?~!?

Recommended Posts

I basically live alone most of the day, I cant fukin cook other than top ramen noodles. So basically all I eat is microwave foods.

Recently 2 months ago, I stopped eating hot pockets, I just couldnt take it anymore. Now I eat other microwave food trays like lean cuisine, stouffers, swanson, lean gourmet, etc!

I'm sick of eating this crap! I feel like vomiting, and there is nothing else in the damn fridge!!! Im so confused and frustrated and I cant think and I blame my lack of good food intake to be the cause of it all.

So please help, I'm 19 and I still live with my parents =/, i go to community college, Ill transfer out in another year.

Since this is of course an acne forum, give me a list of "prepared" acne-friendly FOODS, like (Baked Sweet potatoes and brown rice, or roasted chicken and fresh corn or soemthing i dont know..)

My only conditions are that I dont want to eat "frozen food" i just can't stand it anymore.

Btw, I found this website, http://home.bluegrass.net/~jclark/source_foods.htm

Also SHARE what you usually eat....

I'm afraid you're going to have a learn to do a little cooking if you want to eat right, but have no fear, it's really pretty easy! :)

You've been given some great advice. Below are some more fast and easy things you could do... :)

(You can use pre-washed greens and cabbage. I know you don't like frozen, but frozen veggies are full of nutrients and very convenient).

* Green Smoothies (see link in my signature). Greens are the #1 skin food, so I'd find a way to incorporate blended greens into your diet.

* 1 or 2 slices of Ezekiel bread with some raw almond butter.

* Steamed veggies seasoned with nut butters, butter buds, nut sauces, seasonings etc.

* A big salad with 1 cups of beans thrown on top and a low fat, low sugar dressing.

* Veggie soup (puree a stalk of broccoli, 1 cup of almonds, and 1/4 cup dried onions, with some chicken broth, Pour in a large pot, add some cut up veggies, and seasonings to taste, such as turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.) Heat on low for 1 - 1 1/2 hours. This takes less than 20 minutes of prep time, and makes a large pot of nutritious soup, and you can re-heat it for 3-5 days.

* Coleslaw with raisins and nut sauce (1 cup cashews, 1 cup almond milk, about 4 tbs dried onions, about 1/2 lemon juice)

* Fruit sorbets - blend some frozen fruit with some fruit juice. Raspberries always taste great added to fruit sorbets.

All your tips have been fuckin great but...

Let this thread die... things have changed for me.

I no longer get real red pimples, I get small whiteheads 1-3 at a time along chin.

I suffer from blackheads and blackheads that are not black that stick out a little bit out of the pore giving a rough skin texture. All mainly on nose, and a little bit toward the cheek. Every pore on my nose is blocked. I clear em out manually one day, next day they're back, more I do it, the more faster they come back. I'm trying to get mint julep mask to possibly slow down.. the process.

I suffer from oily skin also T-zone oil overflow, and I dont use any chemicals. It's also funny that when I sometimes rarely use a cleanser to control the oil, my skin turns dry soon as the oil is gone. So yea I have oily skin, and I have dry flaky skin (dry and oily skin, explain that). Also I think not using any chemicals for the past 3 months is what made the pimples go away.

I might even have tiny closed comedones cluster above my chin.

I've stopped believing in diet for treating non-inflamed acne.
