  1. Omega 3 fatty acids contain anti-inflammatory properties whereas omega-6 fatty acids contain inflammatory properties. Both omega-6s and omega-3s are essential for our overall health, however these fatty acids must be consumed in balance. Our bodies cannot create these fatty acids therefore we must obtain them from diet. In westernized cultures it is very common that people are consuming excessive amounts of omega-6s and not enough omega-3s which subsequently causes acute inflammation in the bod
  2. You should definitely check out my recent thread on curing hormonal acne (Hormonal Acne -- Get it under control NOW!). The findings which I have posted are all cited and proven to work. It will help you better understand the reasoning behind hormonal acne and how to get rid of it relatively quickly and easily -- you don't have to live with it! Testosterone (T) and insulin are the main acne causing hormones and my thread will explain to you exactly how you can train your body's metabolic rate su
  3. This site is filled with posts by people who make really bold claims and don't actually provide any scientific evidence. This might actually be the most absurd comment I've come across. Telling people that the artistry of music is damaging and explaining it in the context you did just simply is not true! You comment is very subjective and I hope people are smart enough to understand that music is therapeutic will make your life so much richer. Your argument seems to revolve on the basis that peo
  4. That's awesome that you saw such great results -- the weight loss results are remarkable as well. Me personally, I have always been very slim and lean and this diet actually helped me increase my muscle gains, which is great since I have played competitive sports for many years. I guess that whether you are trying to lose weight, or gain weight this diet can assist you greatly in achieving a healthy body composition. You mentioned that when you started increasing your fat intake, you also sign
  5. Overview Over the last few days I have compiled a lot of research surrounding the relationships between metabolic states, hormone imbalances, and acne. I am very excited to share these discoveries which are in fact very logical and simple yet often overlooked. If you have been suffering with acne and have tried everything such as adopting a remarkably “clean” diet, different facial cleansers, anti-biotics and so on, then your acne is probably attributed to a hormonal imbalance in which case re
  6. YES yes yes and yes I had the same experience. I cleared my skin months ago with diet, and I wrote a lot about it on this forum, also why it works. But unfortunately it is kind of hard to convince people acne is insulin resistance, or pre pre type 2 diabetes. A diet high in fat promotes insulin sensitivity and thus cleares acne. My diet today eg. consisted of 2200 kcal. 60% fat (147 grams) 16% carbohydrates (90 g.) 20% protein (112 g) that is a lot of meat and a lot of fat, mostly paleo style.

  9. Your input is much appreciated and I will begin to add more healthy fats into my diet ASAP. Do you think a good start at implementing healthier fats into my diet would be to eat an avacado every morning and tuna at night? Thanks Avocado and tuna are a good start. The key is having the right ratio of fat, protein, carbs, and fiber at each meal. If you are consuming mainly carbs one meal and mainly fat another meal, and mainly protein another meal then it wont be as beneficial. When I first starte
  10. Once I started adding more fat into my diet my skin improved tremendously in a short period of time. I saw a noticeable improvement in my skin tone in just 48 hours. The biggest misconception I think with the whole anti-acne diet is that when people throw the words "clean eating" around the first idea hat comes to mind is to reduce fat. The reason is probably because people associate fat with junk food and the assumption is that it will lead to breakouts. You probably already know, but you don't
  11. I think I know exactly what is causing your breakouts and this may go against all the convention you have come to believe in when it comes to clearing your skin. This is my first post on this site and I had to write to you because I think you may be falling into the same trap I did. I also have a very lean body type and have eaten "clean" my entire life and I am very physically active. I was about the same height and weight as you when I was your age and ate very clean as you do. Fast forward a
