  1. Sorry, but I don't quite believe you... This diet has not been scientifically proven in any way and is based upon generalized ideas regarding blood types. Also, you stated in your post that you are 99% clear from following this diet. However, only 3 days ago you posted that you are on Dan's regimen and that you weren't completely satisfied with it and were getting 1-4 small active pimples per day. You also sound a bit too excited and completely unbelievable in my opinion. Well anyway, best
  2. Fried Twinkies dipped in Margarine.
  3. I personally wouldn't hold in urine for long periods of time. I believe it increases the risks of a UTI as well as probably other things that can't be good. It's natural for the body to excrete waste so why fight it?
  4. Someone as beautiful as you shouldn't be lonely! Hopefully things are looking up for you!
  5. Well, I would vote but none of the choices apply to me...
  6. Hmm, yea I guess it did... I basically just went on to say that 2% Salicylic Acid is good for gentle exfoliation. :P Thanks, hope whatever you're currently doing works as well!

    1. Thanks for the reply! Part of your message cut off, but I think I got the gist of it. Hope your regimen works out great for you. =]

      1. Hey, I got both the 8% AHA gel and the 2% BHA lotion. I didn't really use the AHA gel that long because it seemed to be over irritating when I tried it once a day. It was causing me to break out more than usual.

        The 2% SA lotion seems to work pretty well (I used it on my nose for blackheads). I haven't used it lately though since I'm just trying Purpose Cleanser and Vitam

        1. Hey, Matt. I saw in one of your older posts that you were thinking of using Paula's Choice BHAs. How did that work out for you? Thanks!

          1. I started with the GNC brand since I wanted to start right away but I ordered 800 500-mg pills from Amazon which are Twin Labs brand. I'm hoping the switch from brand to brand won't cause too much of a problem... They should essentially be the same thing. I'm almost a week in and up to 10 g per day. I've noticed a small difference so far. My skin is a little more dry and so are my lips. Other than that, I haven't really had any of the other side effects so all is well! I'll try to update
          2. Hmm, your acne sounds almost identical to mine and the funny thing is that I was once clear in the past using a BP cleanser, Clindamycin gel, and Nicomide cream. I was also on the oral antibiotic minocycline. I've tried BP and Nicomide cream but they haven't really done anything. (I've also tried a ton of other things as well and none of those worked either...) I think maybe Clindamycin might be the key unless it was the oral antibiotic doing most of the work. I might have to try and get an
          3. I cut out dairy for a few weeks and it had no effect on the rate at which my acne formed... Now I'm back to eating yogurt, drinking milk, and eating cheese as much as I used to and it feels good. However, I still have as much acne as I did before. Now I'm trying the vitamin B5 route but I have a feeling that diet/supplements are not going to help my acne in any way. I think I might just have to wait until my hormones die down (although I'm already 20 and it doesn't look like it's going to
