  1. I don't understand it either, jkalex05. That said, if there's anything I do understand about acne after reading these forums over the years, it is that everyone (and their skin) is different, and responds to different things differently.
  2. Hi pinkflower88, Your post is much appreciated! This Nature's Gate moisturizer is great. Well, it was great. The old formulation was great. The new Nature's Gate formulation, however, feels (and even smells) horribly oily and leaves a gross residue on my face that later peels off into little white balls of old dried moisturizer crust. It seems like we can't win, huh? Like you, I struggled to adjust after Dan changed the moisturizer formulation. Constant breakouts, despite attempting to use
  3. Day 8: My skin isn't doing so great. There's massive whitehead on my nose and a few whiteheads in other places on my face. I can't say I'm noticing any difference whatsoever, yet. If anything, my skin has gotten worse. I'm of course going to keep going and try to keep this up for a couple of months. In the meantime, I'm trying not to get discouraged
  4. Just a followup on this... i fuond this: http://www.answers.com/topic/fish-oil-2?cat=health "Several small studies indicate that fish oil may be helpful in treating .... Raynaud's phenomenon, an autoimmune disorder in which the patient's hands and feet are abnormally sensitive to cold and emotionalstress. With respect to the Raynaud's patients, small double-blind studies showed that very high doses of fish oil reduce their responses to cold. It appears, however, that doses as high as 12 g of
  5. My hands used to almost ALWAYS be cold, and reddish in color. Since being on the fish oil, this is happening much less often. This is really great, because the cold hands thing was quite annoying. Perhaps this is due to a thinning of blood consistency caused by the fish oil (thus better blood/warmth circulation)? does that make sense?
  6. Another quick note... For a great and convenient natural source of Omega3, i pick up these salmon burgers from costco. 5 minutes each side on the pan. there's about 1G of O3 per burger, and i usually eat 2 of these per meal, so that's over 2G of O3 in a natural meal. Also a sizable 22g of protein per burger and only 9g of fat per burger (1g sat fat). These are indeed made using Wild caught salmon, btw. You can see this mentioned in the description on the back of the bag pic below. (Btw, img
  7. Day 2: My face is so-so today. There are a few actives. There's a big one under my lower lip that still hasn't surfaced (it will probably become a whitehead... yay!). There's a decent sized whitehead along my jawline. My acne likes to cluster along my jawline and neck. A tiny whitehead next to my nose. A whitehead on the forehead. This is not too unusual... I'm all about the whiteheads. For whatever reason the bacne stuff seems to take a LONG time to fade, so I don't expect much there yet, and
  8. Thanks for your reply AutonomousOne. Let me give a shot at defining this -- and hardgainer may have been an inappropriate term. I suppose what I'm describing is: A person that, even when consuming an average (say, 2000 calorie) diet, has a weight that is significantly below average for their height, eliminating all variables such as exercise and lifestyle. That is, their "natural weight" is significantly below average. Now, you're absolutely right, a lot comes into play with this, because a

  10. Thanks man... yeah that sounds right. So you'd advocate moving up to 3.5 rather than jumping right to it? On a slightly unrelated note, there's something I've always wondered about my acne. I'm what's called a hardgainer.... I'm about 5' 11'' and 150 pounds. Even if I want to, it takes great effort for me to gain weight. I really don't mind this though... I get excercise, I'm in great shape, I'm fairly strong for that weight, and I eat fairly well, so I don't concern myself with it too much.
  11. I have mild/moderate acne on my face and some mild/moderate bacne as well. I just started the Fish Oil yesterday. I bought Nature Made stuff (see attached image). So far I've taken 5 1200mg caps (432 EPA / 288 DHA per). My skin actually feels really good right now. It could be just coincidence. I do have my "moments" of good skin, but I've never been able to correlate these moments with anything (random chance? I guess that's what the derms of the world would have us believe). Hopefully this
