[font="Comic Sans MS] Im trying to do the same thing but are you taking any antibiotics? you have to also start from the inside . I take doxycycline 100 mg twice a day yes i also avoid fast food I usually eat almonds they work for me high in Vitamin E also vitamin C is great for acne. Wash my face with cetaphil does not leave your skin fucking irritating n all that shit right so. Im clearing up quite nice a little sunshine helps too maybe 15 to 30minutes of outdoors ... I also stop worrying so much about that stop stressing yourself N my Bday was just last Saturday . but anyways keep it up drink alot of water it flushes funky shit out of your body. RElax pamper yourself to something you like if you really want it you wont stop !!

Foods high in protein and fat help you feel full more than carbs. Eat some steak, eggs, nuts, or whatever.

Don't take antibiotics. They will undo all your hard work and the progress you've made with diet changes, and cause you far more problems in the long run. I have been on them and am paying for it now. I know it's frustrating, but stick to your diet if it's helping your skin. Clear skin is worth not being able to eat certain foods, no?

Yeah your right and i dont take antibiotics i just use topical prescribed cream and I WILL (I dont care if it kills me) stick to my diet")

Its just soooo hard at school I have NO freaking idea what to eat so i usually just starve :cry:

Thanks After this it inspired me not to give up :angel:

Good to hear that you are not going to give up. Stick to the diet. Even if clear skin doesn't immediately come, at least you will have a healthy body. Cheer up.

Look up primal diet/fitness. You eat foods that were available to cavemen, since that's the way our bodies evolved to eat. Basically you eat red meat/fish/poultry, most veggies (no white potatoes, too many carbs), some fruit (don't want too much sugar), eggs, seeds and nuts (peanuts aren't nuts). Avoid grains (humans only started eating grains within the last few thousand years), dairy, and refined carbs (white bread, white rice, etc).

So your brother could have taken you out for seafood or maybe a nice steak house.

As you move away from eating carbs, it will be hard for the first week or 2, but then you adapt and it gets easy.

If the diet changes doesn't seem to help then it is your topical cream that's hindering the recovery process. Eating good foods shouldn't cause acne. But using chemicals, we can't be sure if it does good or bad. Try not using it. ;)

I'm really petite too and the last thing I can afford to do is just eat such a restricted diet, I eat constantly LOL. I do snack a lot on fruits and natural almonds, I think you would actually do best not eating fast food, the occasional chip shouldn't kill you. I really think if its been a couple of weeks and you haven't had much results what you are using on your skin is the result of your acne. I used to have this moisturizer I really loved , hell I try to stay away from it now because it breaks me out around my chin/bottom cheek area but it makes my skin tone glow and sooo freaking even. Are you using topicals? Also what is the severity of your acne and is your skin really dry, oily etc?

This may sound odd but I found eating at least two apples a day, 1-2 cups of green tea *just a spoonful of sugar and honey and two spoonfuls of flaxseed have really helped me out. Also I moisturize with aloe. I still tend to eat junk food sometimes like a mutha but my breakout is very very minimal.

In high school I used purpose soap, just that and it really cleared me up. :-)
