  1. Have you considered the possibility that the reason people "grow out" of acne is that, generally, when people get older they start to realize they can't eat the same crap they did when they were kids and thus seek to make beneficial changes in their diet which inadvertently lead to a clearing up of skin? I guarantee you my skin is still acne-prone if I was to slack off, but I don't because I've become accustomed to my diet (becoming accustomed to eating healthy food consistently is another chal
  2. Have you considered that the reason you cleared up in that weekend is because you were: A.) In the sunlight/outside (I assume you didn't stay in the cabin for that entire weekend) B.) Consumed more fat/BBQ food C.) Were around positive people and having a good time D.) Less stress/worrying about your skin E.) Less irritation to your skin from washing with face products/mechanical scrubbing.
  3. Still going strong. You guys should be strong too. Happy Early Valentine's Day everyone!
  4. I take magnesium taurate, ALA, Vit D and a multi, but honestly very few supplements have ever made any improvement in my acne. However, I still think vitamins have merit since they let you cover all your bases with more certainty. 25. No, I didn't grow out of acne lol. My mom said the same thing would happen when I turned 18, yeah right. You don't "grow out" of acne unless there's significant biological/hormonal change in your body which causes you to stop producing the inflammation that
  5. After doing the holistic thing for years, I can confidently say now that I no longer get acne. If there's anyone out there doubting that there's an "acne-free future," there is. The good news is that it's very possible to reverse your health to the point where your skin is actually IMPROVING, the bad news is that it takes a while to get back there and requires you probably do some "unorthodox" things. As you can see, I've been a member of this board for years and only in the last few years have
  6. Zinc decreases DHT by inhibiting (reducing or stopping) 5 alpha-reductase, an enzyme which is responsible for converting Testosterone (and other hormones as far as I know, but the science on that is not as well-researched from what I've been able to find) into the more potent DHT. DHT = bad testosterone, DHT causes prostate issues in men and also hair loss. That study is an anomaly. You know how 9 in 10 Dentists recommend Colgate toothpaste? This study is that 10th dentist. Ok, that
  7. If you get quail eggs or duck eggs, the egg whites don't have Avidin (the protein in egg whites that many people have issues with.) You can purchase quail or duck eggs in Asian/Indian groceries. You might be able to find them in health food stores, but I've never personally seen them. The only place I've been able to get them is an Asian market.
  8. First of all, don't react so severely to just 1 pimple. You could potentially be causing your child self-esteem issues. Although I do think it's best to remove junk food from your child's diet, you don't want to do it in a manner that will cause them to rebel. I wish you luck. It's good that you're nipping this in the bud early.
  9. I had oily skin all throughout my teenage years which decreased when I cut out soy from my diet I eat a lot of butter, because I have found a high-quality brand I like that I can purchase in bulk for cheap. My skin has not gotten more oily from eating substantial amounts of butter. I believe soy + high-carb diets are a far more common "trigger" for oily skin.
  10. there is nothing in meat that you cant get in a plant based diet. the protein in meat is not as optimal as raw plant based proteins, why you ask. they are quickly digested and assimilated into the blood. unlike plant based protein, animal protein has to be broken down, anything cooked that gets denatured has to be broken down, this takes energy from your body to create new enzymes to do this process. as the enzymes go to work it takes much longer, in raw plants the food already contains the

  12. I'm not going to spoon feed you, bobbi. You were the one being rude and disrespectful by telling people they'd probably not understand (i.e. they're too stupid). I could say that you're the one not understanding how evolution works. But I won't. to sum up a lack of understanding as stupid is rather crude. i am appalled by your attitude and will be leaving this forum today now knowing and understanding how and who moderators these forums. thank you for your time and attention everyone it was a
  13. Oh ok, so you agree that humans evolved to eat fish and meat. Glad to see you finally saw the light of a whole foods diet. I'm looking at my teeth right now and I see omnivore teeth. Not carnivore, and definitely not herbivore. If you want to nitpick, our intestinal tract is a good indicator that we're closer to carnivores than we are herbivores. Prove me wrong. I've asked you several times to show me one study where healthy meat is linked to heart attacks and diseases when NOT combined with a
  14. Adding on to this, most healthy diets will balance your weight. If you're underweight, you may find yourself gaining weight (even if you don't want to) and if you're overweight, you will find yourself losing weight. Eventually these things stabilize. I've been in the same 3 pound range for over a year now. My weight doesn't really fluctuate. If your "paleo" diet does not include animal products, it's not paleo. It's veganism, which is a starvation diet. That's the silliest thing I've heard in
