    Paleo Diet Log.

    Hi Intothewild, thanks for your advice My acne didn´t improve AT ALL with the diet, although I never felt bad during it. But it was useless, so I stopped. I lost A LOT of weight and I didn´t need it, I ate all day but it wasn´t enough (carbs are veeery important, and even if fruit has sugar etc, it´s definitely NOT enough). I was hopeful about this diet, but it didnt work at all, so I want to let other people know that, even when some people can be successful , others won´t, and it´s not our

    Hi! I ve been missing all of this time cause I moved and didn´t have internet until last week. I only came back to say that, unfortunately, paleo DIDN´T WORK FOR ME. I had 2 or 3 breakouts during the diet, exactly as when I wasn´t dieting. I´m so frustrated...I have been eating well for 4 months and I´m the same or even WORSE than in the beginning. All around my mouth I have bumps and, it ITCHES TERRIBLY. I think it must be something like bacterias/yeast, because it itches as HELL the same day

    Day 6 (yesterday) : I had an AWFUL Green smoothie, lol! it only had: one apricot, lettuce, 1 carrot and beatroot. Very Little fruit and tasted horrible! :S I also had a banana and a peach omelette, with cinnamon. It was great. Meal: mushrooms with egg. and grilled squid. Dessert: watermelon and a Green tea. I ate in a restaurant so I had very Little choice. I have a doubt here: anyone knows if squid is bad for acne? I have seen some squid recipe in Loren Cordain normal Paleo diet web, but

    Hi! Day 5: Breakfast: smoothie : cherries, berries, lettuce, 1 peach. And another banana, heated in a pan. Meal: mackerel with zucchini chips. Another smoothie: 1 banana, 2 peaches, cherries, berries. I shared it with my mother so I didn´t drink it all. I also ate a grenadine. I drank a Green tea. Dinner: a loaf of salmon, then boiled beef with vegetables, and some aubergine from yesterday. I also had 3 figs. (perhalps too much sugar). No new pimples. However, I feel hopeless and wa

    Well, I don´t really care how we call it...I wouldn´t for a second refuse to eat wheat and other delicious things if I didn´t have this BIG pROBLEM called acne...but I have it, unfortunately. And, since it has helped others, I´ll give it a try just in case wheat and high carbohydrates are being harmful to me I really hate eating without bread and other things that were the MAIN source of my diet...I don´t think eating meat is healthy, either. But I´m giving it a try, for sure. At least, if it

    Thanks for the advice, Oryon!! Today I had to eat in a restaurant and my first dish was a salad. It helped, because salads are probably the only meal I always ate without bread. Eating without bread is very difficult, but, if it worked for me (oh...how much do I wish it would!!!!) I would re introduce legumes and potatoes, and so life would be easier. Talking about other things, today I had an appointment with a new dermatologist. He directly suggested Accutane (here it´s called Mayesta, but i

    Hi, Avada! Your recipe sounds really good! But I can´t eat any cereals during the 30 day diet I think it´s gonna be a nightmare !! My meals today: Breakfast: I heated a sliced Apple in a pan, with cinnamon. Then I made an ommelete and ate all together. Next time I´ll include the apples in the ommelete. I also had a Green smoothie with a peach, spinach, 1 carrot, beetroot. Meal: pork chop and some beef. I also ate 4 bell peppers (all fried with olive oil) and made a mushroom cream fr

    Day 1: Breakfast: Green smoothie with pumpkin, spinach, beetroot, radish. An Apple. To be honest, the smoothie sucked (I can do better) and I nearly starved during the morning! (I used to have breakfast with cereals everyday and have some food after that too). I´ll find new ideas and post them here Meal: Zucchini spaghetti with meat and tomato sauce (home made!) Ingredients and recipe: 2 zucchini. beef (or other) lean meat. 1 ripe tomato. 1/2 onion a garlic spices you like (I

    Hi Oryon! I don´t really see the problem either! but to be honest, I´m a bit paranoid with acne nowadays....and since paleo recommends not taking them, I´ll stick to a non legume diet for a month. But I´m certainly not planning to leave legumes forever! Sounds great. I don't see the problem with legumes though.

    UPDATE: Unfortunately, this diet didn´t work for me. I had already followed an extremely healthy diet for three months, and I kept going for another month, but I achieved nothing, only extreme weight loss even when I ate big portions and several times a day. For me, it isn´t worth it, but I was desperate like most people here, so I tried it as a last resort. I want to say this to anyone who reads the post because I don´t want anyone to be deceived. I think healthy diet can help some people with
  11. I´m so sorry you´re feeling this way. I´m in a similar situation: I ´ve tried ALL summer to eat the best I can ( no dairy, hardly any bread, lots of vegetables, blue fish, green smoothies...) and haven´t used any make up and stopped using harsh chemicals, which have caused more harm tan good in the past. The summer has ended and I´m AS BAD as in the beginning. I´m really down and desperate, so I understand you. I´m adult too (28). I send you a hug, you are not alone (although it´s easy to feel
  12. Yes, I have already tried loooots of things too and nothing Works ( except Accutane, that I´m not willing to try!!) I think it´s very possible that spirolactone is the answer, but I hate taking pills now I´m trying to keep a good diet and stay away for chemicals (they gave me lots of problems, including a lot of inflamation and even perioral dermatitis!!! but if the diet doesn´t Work, I´ll have to give it a try with spiro.. Thank you for answering!
  13. Hi! I´m trying to figure out the root of my acne problem. Doctors don´t help at all. I´m studying medicine, too, and it doesn´t help neither. I feel so lost Sometimes I think my acne must be hormonal (I´m a 28 year old girl, acne started at 23) because it´s on my chin and around the mouth. The problem is that my blood tests are perfect and do not show any imbalance. I have read a lot of threads here and know that this can be totally possible and still have hormonal acne. But my doubt is: ev
  14. it BURNT MY SKIN, WORST EXpERIENCE EVER WITH A TOpIC.

    I know many people achieve great results from this gel, but I must warn you about the other side. I had a terrible breakout (6 bumps all together near my mouth) and, desperate, went to my doctor asking for help. She prescribed me this, and it was HORRIBLE, my face has NEVER BEEN AS BAD, it felt like it burned from the inside of my bumps. They went more and more inflamated, I kept on using it for 18 days because some reviews said it was bad at the beginning but then good. My breakout was worse, w
