  1. <3333 agave triggers my acne x_x I tried it once in my lemonade and broke up within the same night maybe Im sensitive to it... I use stevia only for now( the NOW brand's pure stevia is the best..the only brand that's 100% stevia with nothing else...others all have rice and malt something as a stabilizer) oo btw watch out for RAW spinach for its oxalic acid.... it has to be boiled for at least 3 mins to get rid 50% of it.. but of course if u r not sensitive to it then it's ok~! i lo
  2. Cold potatoes, cooked and left in fridge for 24 hours have almost half the glycemic index. Put vinegar on them and it is even less. Same applies to cold pasta and rice. Although I avoid gluten. I also keep portions of calorifically dense carbs very low. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resistant_starch Interesting. I don't know about "cold" potatoes, but I do know that any vegetable raw has a lower glycemic index than if it's cooked. It has something to do with the break-down of the sugars.
  3. Bad fats for sure!!!! Like I said earlier -- Omega 6 kills my skin and I don't know the science behind it -- but I'm convinced that Omega 6 is lurking in all of the vegetable oils used in processed and pre-cooked foods. That especially includes that nasty little bugger Soybean Oil!!!!! As for the Glycemic index thing -- I got my mom started on it (she's been suffering from adult acne for 20 years now -- and she's noticed a huge improvement in her skin as well. She's not as sensitive to Omega 6

  5. Would it ever!!!! If all the food I ate had a glycemic rating on it I could have saved tons of hours of research. It would save diabetics a great deal of stress too. Oh well. What do I eat???? I eat tons of stuff. When money isn't tight I eat lots of fresh fruit and veggies like apples, pears, plums, oranges, spinach (lots of spinach -- I eat the fresh leaves plain with my hands), bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower (I mash these instead of potatoes), celery...... (I avoid bananas, watermelon, p
  6. I never thought I would be back on this site. I thought I had washed my hands clean of acne after I endured 7 grueling months of Accutane. It worked. For 18 glorious months I had beautiful flawless skin. Then BAM!!!! Back with a vengeance. It started out with one or two spots, then steadily grew. My poor husband.... I became so depressed. The idea of going back on accutane was excruciating and we had been discussing trying to get pregnant in a few months. There was no way I was going to
  7. YES!!!!! Lie lie lie!!!! They won't give you the drug if you don't lie.
  8. I just started my third month of tane and up until this weekend I was positive that my skin would never clear up. My skin had only gotten worse after I started tane and it kept getting progressively worse. Then this last week I stopped getting new pbreakouts and my old breakouts are healing. My face doesn't look perfect by any means, but it looks beautiful compared!!!! I just wanted to give ya'll some inspiration. The IB can be a real biatch, but it's so worth it!!!! The tane doesn't work r
  9. I don't know what your financial situation is like. I assume that it's not great cause you're a student, but I have a suggestion. You'd be surprised at how cheap (relatively speaking) you can get yourself some insurance for. Check out Blue Cross. Look into their individual plans. I got myself insurance specifically so that I could afford the accutane. It costs me $75 a month (I have the PPO -- I think the HMO is cheaper). It also costs me $10 a month for the generic accutane. So for $85
  10. I'm at day number 53 ( 1 month and 3 weeks) and I'm not giving up hope yet. It has made my skin worse. I'm still going through the IB which has been emotionally difficult to say the least. It hasn't been a picnic thus far, but no one said it would be. My acne is far worse than it ever was, and the dry skin only makes it look worse. As far as uncomfortablity? Not really all that bad. I'm pretty much wiped out by the end of the day, and yeah my lips are dry and my face is starting to dry ou
  11. I don't know if this is from the accutane or not, but lately my eyes are always red and look really tired. I've been on accutane for 1 1/2 months now and my eyes have been like this for about 3 weeks now -- maybe longer -- but I just realized three weeks ago. I thought that it was from lack of sleep and being sick, but I'm not sick and I'm sleeping at least 8 hours -- sometimes more. Anyone else experience this and what do you do to get the red out and make your eyes look more alive. I look
  12. I think I got my IB -- I'm praying that I did. I fear that the breakout that I did get was just the beginning.....ahhhhh. Sorry -- just me freaking out. I started accutane 26 days ago. I started out on 40 mgs every other day for the first two weeks. After about a week my skin stared breaking out. It took me a few days to notice becuase I just chalked it up to my regular breakouts. Then they just kept coming. It was a moderate IB -- it could definately have been worse, but it was more acn
  13. Aquaphor, Aquaphor you are so sweet, I can even use you to soothe my feet. (man I'm good -- )
  14. I did this starting in July of 2005. My derm had me come in every month for 4 months. I would sit with the Levulan on my face for an hour then I would suffer through the laser for about 10 minutes. My experience was painful. It felt very much like a rubberband being snapped against my face. Then my face would look sunburned for a few days. One time I made the mistake of not covering my face up from the sun after a treatment and I looked like I had 2nd degree burns on my face (it felt like
  15. Aquaphor, Aquaphor you are the best, I love you more than all the rest. You quench my dry accutane lips, You moisturize my cracked fingertips. I LOVE YOU!
