Intermittent Fasting

3 posts in this topic

Ever heard about this?

I was indtroduced to it by a youtube video regarding bodybuilding. I have been struggling with acne for a long time. It started when i was 13 and i am 21 now. It was severe, so people can probably relate to how it feels and how it affects our lives tremendously.

The reason why i started Intermittent Fasting is because I wanted to lose weight effectively without being hungry alot, wich gave me horrible mood swings. I dropped from 13-14% fat to 9% over a few good months, didnt lose much muscle in the progress. As i started to drop the fat, my skin became more clear. After about 2-3 months, it was all gone. Of course I have a small pimple here and there like everybody else, but i was completely "cured".

I am currently on a bulk, wich means I have to eat alot more to gain weight. This gives me a fair amount of acne, but that doesnt scare me because i know why -> I eat like a pig sometimes and dont care about acne...

I want to make it clear that i dont drink milk, but i do eat dairy products at a moderate/low rate and I KNOW this affects acne. Im also a firm beliver in the blood type diet, although i dont strictly follow it, I believe it contains valuable information on how our body reacts to food.

I have also been handed antibiotics wich didnt work, and started a cycle with isotretinoin i was too scared to finish.

Get to know your body, it takes a s!&% load of time and isnt easy, but you will be able to "shape" it as you wish afterwards.

Go to to get information on Intermittent Fasting. This is NOT a diet, its more like a dietary tool.

For those of you who dont want to read alot about it. The deal is that you eat coherent for 8 hours or less a day...

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
