  1. I saw this in a little pharmacy, and I was just wondering if anyone here has tried Lac-Hydrin 12? Unfortunately they were not also selling the 5% version, it would have been great to not have to order it online.
  2. Interesting.... how does it taste though? What do you mix it with, if anything? I'm on the nutiva website and they also have a "Hempshake" in three flavors, and it has similar nutrition facts to the Trader Joe's stuff. Actually a little bit higher in carbs and sugar. Total carbs: 19 grams Fiber: 12 grams Sugar: 7 grams Protein: 7 grams Source: http://nutiva.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/...e-chocolate.gif But I see that their regular hemp protein has the 15g of protein that you were describ
  3. At Trader Joes I saw "Organic Hemp Protein Powder" in chocolate and vanilla. I just googled it and found this information, hopefully it's accurate: Calories: 120 Total Fat: 2.5 grams Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams Polyunsaturated Fat: 2 grams Sodium: 0 mg Potassium: 140 mg Total Carbohydrates: 17 grams Fiber: 9 grams Sugar: 6 grams Protein: 8 grams So, experts out there... is this too much sugar for a paleo diet? I know it has more sugar and less protein than
  4. Just wanted to add one tip I have for dry skin. You may have read on this site to wait 10-15 minutes between each regimen step. I find that the longer I wait, the dryer my skin gets. To be clear, you should definitely wait until your skin is dry, as in it is no longer is damp to the touch, but as soon as it is dry, apply the BP. Then as soon as the BP has absorbed, apply the moisturizer. I only recommend this if you are struggling with dryness. It can be tricky, you have to make sure your
  5. Short story: I started using Lac Hydrin 5 lotion, a moisturizer with AHA that I purchased from Amazon. I do the regimen normally, washing with Dan's cleanser, applying Dan's BP, and then applying the Lac Hydrin 5 as I would any other moisturizer. It did sting in the beginning, even though I have used AHA lotions before, but within a week it got rid of all the flakes and improved my skin's clarity and tone. I was VERY flakey, and nothing else was working to get rid of it, so I highly recommend
  6. Personally, I think if you have a MASSIVE amount of flakey, dead skin on your face, you really need to get that off. It's hard to exfoliate without causing irritation though, so I would try using an AHA lotion, which will help get rid of the flakes without irritating the skin like normal exfoliation. The Lac Hydrin 5 lotion has been working very well for me, but Dan's AHA is good too. I haven't tried it, but some people like Neutrogena Healthy Skin lotion. I know Dan says that AHA is not a
  7. I don't have an answer for you, but I was wondering the same thing. Maybe Dan will address this in a video someday.
  8. Eight and a half weeks seems like a long time for it to take to break you out if the moisturizer and/or jojoba oil was the cause. I know it can be really frustrating when you have a break out and you don't know why. I don't know if a break out at the 3 month mark is normal, but I would suggest considering the following things: Are you being very, very gentle? Are you using enough BP? These are crucial to the regimen, as I'm sure you have read all over this site. If you aren't having a prob
  9. Can anyone recommend a good protein shake, or a recipe for one, that works with the paleo/primal/caveman diet? There is one for sale on the marksdailyapple/primal blueprint site, but it is pretty expensive. Thanks a lot!
  10. I have the same problem with flakes, and it's really been driving me crazy. When you have the flakiness, you can't cover anything with makeup, at least not any kind of makeup I've found, it just makes the flakes stand out even worse. And people sometimes comment on the flakes, which makes me feel awful. I guess flakes don't have the taboo that acne does about mentioning it to other people. I started using the Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Lotion at night, it was very greasy and difficult to
    Helped with extreme flakiness Extremely greasy, difficult to absorb, and caused a bad breakout for me I have used the regimen for a long time, and recently my skin has become more dry and flakey. I was looking for something very moisturizing with AHA to help with flakes, but this just wasn't it for me. It was so greasy, I could never have used it during the day. I tried using lots at night, which helped somewhat with the flakiness, but left my pillows very greasy, and after a few weeks I brok
  11. Sorry to post even MORE, just wanted to mention.... I did not list beef or pork in my sample menu not because I think they are bad for you, but because I honestly just prefer the taste of chicken and fish. I know, I'm weird. Anyway, I probably will try at least some beef occasionally, since I'm going to need variety doing this diet! Again, I'm not saying any of the foods I eliminated are horrible for you, I'm just trying to get rid of every food that MIGHT cause acne and see what happens.
  12. So this is my current plan: STEP ONE, I'm going to try as strict a paleo/primal/caveman diet as I can. I realize there might technically be differences between paleo and primal diets, but I'm going to try to eat mostly vegetables, a lot of meat, fish, eggs, some nuts and fruit. I'll try to eat as little "processed" food as possible. I realize cooking something at all is "processing" it, but I mean as much as possible, nothing that was cooked/baked by someone else, no added sugar or chemicals
  13. I'm not actually afraid of fats, what I meant was, I could see why someone would say a low carb diet was bad for you if you only ate tons of bacon and ice cream and didn't eat enough vegetables as well. I think bacon is fine, as well as other fats. I've just heard/read that low carb diets are "dangerous," and I'm still not sure of all the reasons why, but it would make sense to me that it is not a good idea to start a diet which would cause you to lose weight if you're not getting everything y
  14. Two questions 1) Is there any danger in not eating any grains? Assuming you're eating lots of vegetables and lean meat instead, not just tons of bacon and ice cream. 2) What regimen should I follow while trying out this diet? Just wash my face and moisturize, no BP?
