  1. A lot of these things you mentioned should be done anyway. Everyone should get enough vitamins & minerals, sleep and exercise. It sounds to me like you randomly cut out food & not an actual group or ingredient. Why did you cut out potatoes? Beans? And what constitutes "junk food"? Added sugar? Trans fat? You could have been getting it from other sources. Many people have had success cutting out dairy. An "apple fast" isn't always effective. There are other ways to detox and other thi
  2. She didn't say we don't need it. She just said that not everyone needs 8-10 glasses of water a day. If you replace all soft drinks and juices with water you'll probably end up drinking close to 8 glasses of water a day anyway. Especially if you drink tea (:

    Ok, in addition to that^, can someone tell me if Cheese-its have hormones in them? These are the ingredients enriched flour (wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate [vitamin b1], folic acid), soybean and palm oil with tbhq for freshness, skim milk cheese (skim milk, whey protein, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes, annatto extract for color), salt, contains two percent or less of paprika, yeast, paprika oleoresin for color, soy lecithin. Drinking lactose free milk won't rid you
  4. I second that. Completely clear in 2 days?
  5. It's a 2:1:1 ratio. Meaning your 6 & 9 should be the same and your 3 should be double that.
  6. There are no FDA requirements for using the term "natural" I believe. It really annoys me too. Another thing that annoys me is that people let these companies get away with it by buying these bad products! These things are bad for our enviorment and our bodies, people! I don't understand how someone can buy a product- whether it's face wash, shampoo, or even food- without reading the ingredients. If everyone cared about what they put into their body then more would be done about it. I totally ag
  7. Hmm.. I'll try the EVOO before I go to bed. I might give that Apple Cider Vinegar a go after my face settles down. Castile soap? Soap tends to clog your pores. Eek I think that would be way too harsh for my sensitive skin. But if it works for you that's great =D I'll let you know (:
  8. Yes, Cheerios have a high GI. Special K does as well. Not sure about Kashi, but it probably does. All Bran has the lowest GI. (: This might help: http://www.mendosa.com/gilists.htm
  9. Please don't try to extract it yourself! You'll just damage your skin. There are estheticians who will do it, but make sure you get someone experienced. Using all those exfoliators and squeezing them is probably what is causing some of them and making it worse. Ya, don't over exfoliate! Like once a week or twice a month is ok to do so. I use to hate touching my face, it always made me depressed! The BEST thing my dermatologist ever told me was Extra Virgin Olive Oil... Put a teeny tiny
  10. If it's okay for girls to wear makeup then it's okay for guys. I don't wear makeup personally, but my idea is: If it makes you feel better about yourself go for it!! It's what you think that matters
  11. There are millions of people who get acne because of a food intolerance, hormonal imbalance, environmental change etc. Genetics do play a role and is the cause for some people, but certainly not 100% of all cases. Have you had a food allergy test? Are you sure it's not hormones? There have been soo many cases where this is so and it may help your acne even more (: I agree with the whole "less is more" thing. While this may not work for everyone it certainly helps with me. I think people w
  12. Please don't try to extract it yourself! You'll just damage your skin. There are estheticians who will do it, but make sure you get someone experienced. Using all those exfoliators and squeezing them is probably what is causing some of them and making it worse.
  13. Ew, no. A lot of soaps use animal parts and even parts from unborn babies. I'm not joking. It's gross. Use a cleanser.
  14. I have the same problem! They just popped up one day. Taking an Essential Fatty Acid supplement helped me. I take Udo's Oil. Omega 3 in particular is helpful for a lot of people, but your 3,6,9 has to be balanced (:
