  1. Just an update after Day 1....no new outbreaks and the old ones have shrunk a bit. I'm still have about 5 cysts. Only changes to my diet is that I had unsweeted, organic soy milk with my Vega shake instead of water (so 1.5L of soy milk instead of water).
  2. AV - Interesting. I know there are Omega 3 labelled eggs...maybe I will give it a shot. For now, I am experimenting on myself, so eggs are the only meats. If everything clears up, then I will add things back into my diet one item at a time.
  3. Grubby - I'm just starting this strict diet. Back in 2008 (when I first joined this site), I realized that diet could manage acne. As a result, I gave up all poor eating habits (candy, fried foods...). However, as mentioned, I still suffer from periods of breakouts. The past few months I've been eating a lot of lean beef and I believe that is the reason for my breakouts (I think it's all the hormones that are added to those poor cows...regardless of how lean the beef is). Let's see how it g
  4. Ok, I need some help figuring this acne thing out and I figure this is the best place for it. A little about me:
  5. So I finally had acne free skin after a decade of breakouts. However I still had the scars. So in December I tried the smooth beam to get rid of them. Last week I had my third treatmant, and the doctor said he was going to make the treatment "stronger". Immediately after the treatment my skin looked horrible. Right before the treatment I had no acne, right after the treatment I had about 20 pimples. Is this normal? Why would anyone do this treatment, if this a chance that acne would be br
  6. OMG, my skin is finally clear after 10 years. I had severe acne in my teens and moderate acne recently. How did I clear it? Diet. All I did was avoid the following (in order): 1) OIL. If I need to use oil, I use coconut oil, and still it is a MINIMAL amount. If I eat fried foods, the oil is immediately expelled thru my face and I breakout the next morning. I avoid oil at all costs. 2) Sugar. Not as bad as oil, but soft drinks break me out. I make sure the nutritional profile of my foo
  7. Brief Histoy: 28 y/o....had acne for 12 years (6 years severe, 6 years moderate), joined this site/group 1/2 year ago. I followed the diet here pretty tight...everybody said to avoid gluten and dairy...but it didn't work. So I stopped. I then followed Randy Couture's diet of high alkaline foods (I am into martial arts), so my training would get better. It's similar to the diet here, but included alkaline forming foods (lemons, watermelons....). Also rice and quinoa were also banned. Al
  8. I hope you weren't expecting results in just two days? Give them at least 6 weeks. I only eat chicken and fish. Cutting out all meats cannot be healthy...especially since I am very active, I need the protein. I really don't think diet is the best cure for acne. If you have serious overactive glands, sebum will be produced with any stress (stress, food...). Accutane is supposed to permanently stop the overactive glands...right? Yes, you do need protein, but you don't have to e

  10. Who are you? "It is impossible NOT to be clear"??? Dude, I have had acne for 12 years now (started at 16, I'm now 28), and started a gluten/dairy/sugar/oil (besides olive oil) free diet 2 months ago. It has not helped one bit. Just because it works for you, doesn't mean it will work for all. I have had moderate acne for a long time, and this holistic stuff isn't working.
  11. What is the best method to do a liver flush? I bought Omega Alpha's Liver Flush (liquid, sold in a bottle). Is this just a waste of time, or a weaker (slower) way to do a liver flush? Which is the best method? Thanks
  12. I just joined this site a few weeks ago, and up to that point I believed that diet and acne are not related (due to the media who preach this). Anyways, after I OD'd on iced tea, I broke out really bad. This obviously showed me that diet and acne are related. Question: By ovedosing on a specific item (keeping all else in your diet equal), what immediately caused or healed your acne. For me: Caused Acne - Iced tea (or sugar most likely) Healed Acne - None...but will try to OD on Taurine to s
  13. Thanks....does ACV kill your teeth? Yes it can destroy your enamel.. mix into a glass of water or juice (or whatever you prefer) and drink it through a straw straight to the back of your mouth avoiding your teeth. Thanks...any thoughts on my diet? The foods that you listed seem fine in relation to what most people normally break out from. Most people here will recommend you stick to meat, fruits, veggies, at least to begin with. Are you a body builder? Or training for someth
