  1. really? because right here, you told someone with cystic acne that they'd be clear in 2 weeks: You will notice a difference in a week your pimples should be gone in 2 weeks, give it one month and don't despair it takes time to heal years of abuse from toxic foods to your body.. I gurantee you will see results! it's great you want to help people out, but i think giving false hopes to people with moderate to severe acne isn't the best way to do it. my personal post with my acne e
  2. hmm i've noticed you've mentioned it takes 2 weeks to see results a few times throughout this thread, and i think that's somewhat misleading. i went strict paleo for nearly 5-6 months before i was completely clear, and i didn't even see much of a difference with my acne or skin until the second month. even in 'the dietary cure for acne' by loren cordain (a leading paleo researcher & author) it's stated, "In Phase 1, which lasts 30 days, you'll be attacking the causes of acne with nutritiona
  3. lol no need to apologize. personally, i'd refrain from most grains and starchy foods for 2 months to see if your skin improves even if they don't contain gluten. you need to give your gut time to repair, and in some cases, even non-gluten grains can exacerbate acne... most sugars, grains, legumes, and starchy foods need to be avoided for about the first 2 months. if you are having carb cravings, eat some fresh or frozen berries and nuts (no peanuts = legume; not a legitimate nut), and drink some
  4. also purchased a book on candida cleanses...on my way.

    1. Everything you'll need to know about soaking nuts can be found here: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/soaking-seeds-and-nuts/
    2. Also, you can replace the mandelic acid with Acne.org's AHA.
    3. google "non-dairy calcium sources". you'll find a ton of info.
    4. if you're hair isn't thinning from the b5 (pantothenic acid supplement), and it's helping to clear your skin, i see no reason why you shouldn't keep taking it until you're happy with your results. i can honestly say that diet has a far more powerful effect on your skin and overall health in the long-term though. Following a strict paleo diet with an emphasis on lots of green veggies, uncured lean meats/chicken/fish, low or zero fruit for 2 months (for those whose acne is exacerbated by fructos
    5. wicked before an after pix...this candida diet really work? honest ta god?

      1. heyaaa..juz popping to say hello..u look cute :)

        1. *moderator edit - quoted post removed* everything mentioned in the ebook can be found on these forums in a more detailed and concise form than what leo wrote. if you go to my signature, my original regimen was highly influenced by the information i was able to extract from his book with some minor changes. the changes were due to the fact that his writing was difficult to read through since the information was scattered between his own personal commentary and other ramblings regarding acne and
        2. It does help repair soft tissues like the lining of your gut, and for lifting, it promotes muscle recovery and energy, but if you search these forums, you'll also find that it can also exacerbate acne symptoms. I purchased a bottle of 120 pills for $12 that I had to stop taking after a week because I started noticing my skin was breaking out despite being relatively clear prior to use. How it effects your skin differs from person to person though, so you'll have to buy it and try it to see if yo
        3. No, it's the opposite. Sugar makes you fat. When you eat fat, your body uses fat as fuel - AS IT'S SUPPOSED TO - and obesity is impossible. yeah, high fat diets don't equate to increased fat gain. it's just the opposite where your fat cells actually shrink in size and you lose fat weight while becoming trim and lean. carbs/sugar get converted to glycogen, and the excess gets stored in your fat cells once your body has used all of the glycogen it needs for immediate energy. basically i
