    Just want to add that I've found out I have rosacea. That's the reason I had acne.
  2. I started to eat broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, garlic and onion every day at the same time I started to eat coconut oil. My blackheads cleared up and people started to comment that my skin was glowing. I gained some weight after a while so now I only eat 3 tablespoons a day. My skin still looks great. I hope you try the coconut oil for at least a month! You can also apply it on the skin. Sometimes I apply it before I go to bed and my skin looks amazing the next day!
  3. Yes, extra virgin. I had closed comedones on my forehead and lots of blackheads on my nose and chin.
  4. Have you tried coconut oil? I got rid of clogged pores by eating two tablespoons of coconut oil to every meal (6 tablespoons every day).

    I avoid any meat as much as I can. I don't eat bread and dairy at all. I can eat as many vegetables, fish and fruit as I want. And real butter! I have also noticed that a tablespoon of olive oil in the morning together with the fish oil have really improved my skin. It's so soft!

    this is not good for your health. i have been a vegetarian for a dozen years now. if you want to eat butter, you should at least switch to smart balance. it is much healthier for you. being a vegetarian does not automatically equate to good health. i know many who are overweight, diabetic and suffer from high cholesterol. if you are looking for a filling breakfast, you can try tofu srcambles with gimme lean brand sausage and or morning star farms sausage or bacon. when eating chee

    I noticed that grains break me out. I tested many times to make sure I was right. I get enough protein from fish, like tuna.
  8. I used to have 4 hens a couple of years ago. We built a beautiful chicken coop for them and I let them out in the garden every day. They would spend most of the time digging for "treats", lol! The eggs we got from those hens were huge! And delicious!!
  9. I've read people use lemons or lime instead of grapefruit. You can probably try orange juice. I think the important thing is that you get the olive oil down.

    You're very pretty! What diet are you on now?
  11. I think you just have to find out what is best for your body. I cured my acne by cutting out meat from my diet. I eat mostly vegetables and fruit. I use lots of real butter and olive oil when cooking meals. I don't eat much pasta but will sometimes add it to a salad. I eat 3-4 meals a day and have no problems with this diet. My acne is gone.

    I buy lots of bags with frozen vegetables. I cook a bag in the morning and eat them with lots of melted butter. The fat in the butter helps a lot. I don't feel hungry for hours after eating vegetables with melted butter. I might eat oats in the morning sometimes, but not often. My skin is still looking great.
  13. I would be able to help my kids get rid of the acne I passed on to them. I'm an acne expert!
  14. I was a vegetarian for 8 years and got acne after starting to eat meat again. I had no idea that meat was the reason. You can see my progress pics in my gallery. Took me 2 years to figure it out! I'm clear now and back to being a vegetarian. You should start to eat more dairy and fat! If that doesn't change anything, try to eat meat again. Maybe a vegetarian diet isn't doing your body any good.

    From Paleo to Vegetarian

    All I had to do was stop eating meat.

    I took these today. I still have some red marks left, but they are fading. I've been a vegetarian for 52 days now. I still get a zit on my chin sometimes, but it's a small one and I don't really care!
  17. When I tried the alkaline diet my acne cleared up immediately. But I did it more than 4 days.
  18. I got inspired by the "eat more meat" threads here and added more meat to my diet. The result was lots of big and deep cystic acne on my cheeks that would not go away. My pores were huge and my skin was red. Now that I've stopped eating meat, my skin is clear and and my skin tone is nice and even. I believe that some people are supposed to eat meat and some aren't!
  19. I think you can add me as well. I've pics here and also in my photo album here. I've had success with the alkaline diet and liver cleanses, but now I know they worked because I ate less meat while doing them. The acne would always return and my cheeks would be full of them. Now that I've become a vegetarian again, my acne has healed and my skin tone is looking very good! My skin is smooth with only red marks left after the bad acne I used to have. I never suspected meat to be the reason, but no

    I was a vegetarian from age 16-24. When I started to eat meat again it took 9 months before I got acne. And I've had really bad acne for almost two years now. I think it's weird that my acne started to heal so fast after I stopped eating meat and fish! Maybe it's the hormones in the meat?? I will try to add fish to my diet later, but right now I just want to enjoy my clear skin!
  21. My dog actually helped me with a rash I had on my legs when I was younger. It itched real bad and he wanted to take care of it. I let him lick it once a day and a few days later it was gone. My dog also found a small zit on my dad's face. He had beard at that time so he thought it was so funny that my dog found it. The dog smelled at it for a minute to figure out what it was, lol!
  22. A guy (who was interested in me) once pointed at a beautiful girl at a party and told me he thought she was ugly because she had ACNE! I completely lost respect for him. He did not know I was having problems with acne as well. I will never be with a guy who thinks people with acne are ugly. I usually do notice when guys have acne, but that's because I know how it is. If a handsome guy with acne approached me, I'd be very happy! I usually fall for the personality and pretty eyes...
