Altering Diet?

Recommended Posts

Just out of curiosity.

How many of you would alter your diet if you knew 100% it would improve your skin? That means you may have to eat more things like vegetables, elimnating dairy, greasy foods, etc? Would you be open to that?

I already did. And my skin cleared in less than two months. I actually don't know how long it took to clear, but it was sometime in the second month when it dawned on my that my skin was completely clear for the first time ever since I was 10. I didn't notice right away because I'd long since stopped obsessing about acne. Besides, some supplements had already made my skin less oily and I rarely had any inflamed acne on my face.

Although while I've experimenting with eliminating dairy, it has no effect on my acne. It is one of the most common allergen/intolerances though, and one of the first things people should try avoiding. Citrus fruits caused my cystic acne.

funny enough I recetnly have just got my wisdom teeth out, so I have been limited to soft and or almost a liquid diet, such as pudding, yougert, soup etc etc, and i have noticted a decrease of breakouts! I really wish doctors would look more into the connection between acne and food, becasue there is one!

Well, some researchers have and done studies that demonstrate it. Besides, there have been plenty of studies on the factors involved in acne. And there have been studies on the effect of diet and those factors. Just put it together. There have also been plenty of studies demonstrating the connection between diet and other hormone related issues like PCOS and enlarged prostrate.

I wish doctors would keep up.
