I am clear......

Recommended Posts

For the last three weeks I have gone vegan, no meat, or dairy products...Also no junk food or bread; grains etc.....

My face is clear, no Acne left what so ever.... Now just disgusting scars all over my face...LOL...You can never truly win in life, always an obstacle blocking happiness...

I am not completely happy, but now I can go out and have some fun...Use a lot of make-up to cover scars, so it's not that bad...

I will miss some foods, like cake and pie...But I can handle it... It is just so wonderful, my acne is from genetics; so a vegan diet is what really worked for me...

congrats on getting clear.

i don't think it's smart to be a vegan for a long period of time. you'll end up with iron and/or b12 deficiency, if you don't supplement or are not really careful about getting those things in your diet.

you should consider adding back in at least eggs and kefir (similar to yogurt), just make sure they are organic (hormone-free). i doubt that these would make you break out, unless you are allergic to eggs. then also consider getting organic beef and/or poultry.

my friend's been a vegan for 5 years now... and he's fine. He takes flax supplements and iron supplements.

Anyways, do whatever seems right to you.

Congratulations :clap:

Maybe a vegeterian diet won't work for everyone, but it'll work for a lot of people. I eat a clean diet with just very little meat, and I have been clear of acne for some time now. Did you know that actor Dirk Benedict (Battle Star Galactica, The A-Team) cleared up his acne in the early 70's after following a macrobiotic diet?

When times goes by maybe your scars will dissappear, too. I drink some lemon juice before breakfast to get rid of them.

You are right, hottignorance, there's always an obstacle blocking happiness. I was thinking the same thing a few days ago. My acne is gone, but now I'm starting to have other problems in life. Guess you just have to stay positive, right?

i don't think it's smart to be a vegan for a long period of time. you'll end up with iron and/or b12 deficiency, if you don't supplement or are not really careful about getting those things in your diet.

you should consider adding back in at least eggs and kefir (similar to yogurt), just make sure they are organic (hormone-free). i doubt that these would make you break out, unless you are allergic to eggs. then also consider getting organic beef and/or poultry.

Actually there has been many studies done on vegans compared to meat-eaters and vegetarians and they are the healthiest people and they live the longest (of course you need to eat right and not live on junk food).

I'm a vegetarian and I wouldn't be able to be a vegan but I give them a lot of credit because now-a-days everything is made with animal products (i've noticed that they put Bacon on everything!!!...its so f'ing discusting).

If someone feels they are deficient or will be deficient in any vitamins or nutrients then all these supplements are very accessible for them.

Good luck with everything and I hope you and you're new diet work wonders for your skin :D

that doesn't contradict what i said. i'm not surprised that vegans as a whole are healthier than non-vegans. a lot of them are really health-conscious and eat a lot of vegetables, fruits, etc. (while most other people don't give a shit about eating healthy.) that doesn't mean that they would be any less healthy eating (organic) meat/dairy/eggs. and notice that i said vegans risk iron/b12 defiency IF they don't supplement or are not really careful about getting those things in their diet. i'm sure many of them do and are.

my point is that i personally believe we were meant to consume meat, eggs, and dairy. the problem is that they are full of hormones and anti-biotics if you don't get organic. also, i don't think we need to eat as MUCH meat as a lot of people do.
