  1. Yes onions can give you acne if you have an allergy/food sensitivity/intolerance to them. Get a blood test done by an allergist to find out what you can and can't eat. Edit: just realized this thread is from 2003
  2. Okay that makes sense. But how do you eat enough calories a day to maintain weight? I know that I won't be available to eat a lot of small meals throughout the day everyday. Sometimes I've only got time to eat 3 meals a day(if that), so they have to be pretty large. Do proteins and fats affect the GL if eaten with the carbs? I've got to find some food source I can load up on. Protein theoretically has no effect on blood glucose. I'm not going to get into the specifics of how it could r

  4. So, for the past 2 years I thought the whole acne diet thing was to eat low glycemic index foods. (Very low carb, and eliminate food allergies and inotolerances) But now I'm reading that even some low carb foods (low gi) have a high glycemic load. What's the real difference between the Glycemic Index and the Glycemic Load? What foods should you be eating and in what amounts?
  5. I do try to eat a lot of nuts. Its one of the foods out there on the foods I can list that I can enjoy. I've heard mixed things about sweet potatoes and rice (even brown rice). But I'll bring them back in moderately to see if they cause flares.
  6. I wish this were true but I've been on so many prescriptions for acne in the past and none of them worked for more than a month. I know there is a diet connection for me somewhere.
  7. You don't have to eat low GI. You need to NOT eat high GI, or more importantly not eat any GL meals, drinks or snacks. You do that for life and for reasons more important than acne, but this along with avoiding a food (citrus) that causes me to break out in cysts is what keeps me clear. What about sleep, daily bright light exposure, stress, physical activity, etc?

  8. Yup I take, -a Multivitamin -2000iu Vitamin D -1000 MG Vitamin C -8000 iu Vitamin A -400 iu Vitamin E -30 MG Zinc Citrate -1000 MG Cal-Mag Citrate -2 Grams Fish Oil -Probiotics And I just added Digestive Enzymes about 5 days ago. I really do not like fish at all, so I just sup with fish oil daily instead.
  9. I have had moderate success with diet the past two years (about 70% max) but now it seems, all the diets effects are wearing off. And I've lost a severe amount of weight. Here's what I've tried to do so far. - Insulin resistance. I've tried the very best I could at eating very low gi foods. Completely cut out all sugars, starches, grains and empty carbs. This probably helps me the most but definitely does not clear me completely. The problem with this is I am a very skinny guy to begin with, th
  10. Totally agree about digestion now. And I will check out the free articles Yup, couldn't agree more about the Omega 3's
  11. BUMP!!!!!!!!!!!! Hey guys, Sorry I haven't updated because I haven't checked my thread in quite a while. I've really switched up what I've been doing for my skin. My skin is a constant 70% better over-all. (And is about 95 when completely sticking to my new diet) So far what I've done is: Colon cleanse Parasite cleanse Started to do Liver flushes (I'm only on my second because I just started them two weeks ago) Changed up diet: Mainly eating Greens, Veggies, Chicken and Turkey. And sweet
  12. It broke me out a lot. I could tell it was the green tea because once I dropped it the severity of my breakouts lessened. Although, it does help a lot of people so maybe give it a shot.
  13. Thanks to everyone who replied so far. Just to give an update on what supplements I am currently taking Probiotics Zinc Cod Liver Oil Vitamin E B-complex Psyllium Fiber Husks I am also still on the regimen as well. My skin is actually been pretty good these last couple of weeks. I had two days last week where it was almost flawless. So, I hope I'm doing something right. In addition I've been eating omega 3 eggs for breakfast every other day. I've been cutting back on drinking to maybe on
