SweetJade, I'm always wondering what the HTH means in your posts? Can you indulge me?

I definately break out if I consume lot of carbs. No doubt about it.

I'll venture a guess and say that HTH means Hope that helps. wink.gif

These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):

* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)

* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002

* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)

* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):

* Strengthen/Repair GI - Immune health


* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).

* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

I have noticed i get way less breakouts eating a frutarian diet

but i am a very happy person when i eat a diet based on deliciously cooked vegetables and bread and pasta and lots of spices

i think it makes my overall health better... beer makes me happy too...

i've discovered... not worring about acne and not washing to much and not using so much stuff to clear it up... clears it up... not completely... though

yup bb_icon_rolleyes.gif

i have tested the carbon thing myself. all i ate for 3 weeks was pure chicken (cooked not fried) and water. no chips and sweets and stuf flike that not even fruits. the first week i had the feelin that it really clears me up. but now after 3 weeks i have a huge breakout and the some days before that i had a little breakout. so my opinion about it is that doing this diet was wasting time. i don't know what cleared my up the first weeks but it wasn't the food.
