  2. hi i want to start taking multivitamin pills not only for acne but for overall health but i know that ''acnegenic'' people should be careful with what multivitamins to buy could someone tell me which ones are the best and what ingredients to look for and to avoid... thanks
  3. and please do not advice shampoos conditioners or whatever this is beyond the phase of getting it fixed topically.. i have these cysts popping up on my scalp out of nowhere! first i thought sugar was the cause which it still is but it seems that they just wont stop even after ive stopped eating sugar... sugar only makes it worse but without sugar theyre still there and new ones coming up every day... its good you cant see them but it hurts like hell.. i couldnt sleep for the past few days cuz w
  4. im afraid it will destroy all the roots and i would eventually go bald.. i have like severe scalp acne.. first i thought it was because of my long hair so now it cut it really short and apart from the fact that its now showing like hell it didnt even get any better... the cysts come up everyday on my whole scalp hurting as hell sometimes i cant even sleep on the side of my head of the back its hurts like hell... what kind of a disorder could this be now? i mean ive got face acne and back acne m
  5. well this person told me that you can consume eggs as many as u want.. now i guess 4 a day is way too much considering that ur eating them everyday? but since its either eggs or meat and eggs is much easier to make i go for eggs but i guess too much is not good either?
  6. I must say that this is not really for skin purposes more fo rlosing weight, a friend of mine said that all you eat for 2 weeks is eggs and meat.. you basically dont get any carbs intake at all... which makes you lose weight like crazy.... now i was wondering, im still struggling with acne.. with this diet of cooked eggs and meat only do any harm for my skin? thanks.
  7. i was wondering... if you cut out sugar from your diet but still eat a lot of fruits like watermelon prunes apples and such, are you still gonna get weight cause ive heard once that our body doesnt see the difference between fructose or tablesugar.. to it its all the same so i was wondering is it as bad, thanks.
  8. I ordered this from this company lef.org great company by the way but yeah i was wondering.. does anyone hae experience with this? they said it was their best fish oil available and it cost me 32 bucks so it better be good... I ordered mine a few weeks ago.. at the time they only had the one without the olive fruit extract Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract 120 softgels Item Catalog Number: 820 Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract is from a
  9. hi well my mom just got salmon from the market its fresh i guess and you can just eat it like that but i can taste all the salt so i was wondering is it iodized salt because if so then it will lead to break outs since iodine does...
  10. I was gonna look for older threads on this topic but the search option didn't work so... Anyway, there was this special on MTV on celebrities and how they diet and what kind. I know it's mostly all hype and a hollywood thing... but The Zone diet was very popular among celebrities as well as the Atkins, South Beach and the Perricone's Prescription. Perricone's Prescription, has anyone been on it? It's supposed to work anti inflammatory.. you only eat foods that don't create inflamation, like sal
  11. sj, i couldn't find the old diet thread, oh well, we can make this the new one.. anyway, my chin is still not doing great, still inflamed and breakouts...maybe that's because i haven't completely cut on dairy and wheat, it's just i don't know any other stuff i could substitute it with...i also got some white tea since its very high in anti oxidants.i also read that blackberries and cranberries are good for acne cause they're on the low glycemic index and are also quite high in anti oxidants, so
  12. i may be wrong, but i don't think having cheatmeals on a daily basis such as mac donalds wouldn't do any harm...depends on the person i guess, but i wouldn't really recommend having big macs on a daily basis.. as for the antioxidants in fruits... most of us forget that most of the fruits have been sprouted and what not, unless you get the organic ones, otherwise i don't think the fruits are really that high in antioxidants and all the great stuff in them after they've been sprouted...but then ag
  13. Whoa, I can't believe you have the strength to do all this and mostly continue doing it everyday! I really admire you for that but on another note, maybe you're overdoing it a little bit with all those supplements, the nutrition is very good though.You should ask SweetJade, she's an expert on that stuff.
  14. Dr. Mercola's Comment Freshly squeezed fruit juice has about eight full teaspoons of sugar per eight-ounce glass. This sugar is typically a fruit sugar called fructose, which is every bit as dangerous as regular table sugar since it will also cause a major increase in insulin levels. This doesn’t mean that you should avoid fruit, just fruit juice. When the fruit is intact and whole, its fiber will somewhat moderate the release of fructose into the bloodstream as well as somewhat moderat
  15. I want to quit on dairy completely but i was wondering, is there anything else i can substitute dairy products with? Also, I've been reading that if you're to cheat and to eat chocolate, best go for organic chocolate.. i took a look at this healthfoodstore in my area and they have plenty of organic dark chocolate and i believe all are made from cane sugar..is that good or bad? also, i got some white tea! it didn't even taste gross so if it really does contain as many anti oxidants as i read it
  16. nothing puberty... just bad genes! my mom has diabetes and rosacea and my dad has those capilaries things on his cheeks and well i have acne! so the link is right there.. i was wondering though, despite the ''acne genes'', is it possible to like surpress them through right nutrition, supplementation ... ? thanks.
  17. Since my mom is not willing to help me, noone actually is, and I cant come up with my own recipes i keep eating all these good foods seperately which of course is not filling at all. I hope i can come to the point where i can combine everything and make one whole meal out of it instead of ''veggie & fruit snacks'' hope someone can help me, thanks
  18. My doc refused to give me a referral to an endo as well, she found the problem not problematic enough and well, according to her there is not much endocrinologists can do for acne sufferers.So after that, I personally contacted an endocinologist and got told that it is very uncommon for them to get patients with acne , and even if, then it's gotta be a really severe case, like a woman in her mid thirties suffering from acne for 15 years now.Then, he said, they take it serious and look for possib
  19. Has anyone tried a tinted moisturizer already? Is it like liquid foundation mixed with a moisturizer? What are good brands for that? I'm looking for something natural, non acne genic of course and well, overall a good deal...
  20. I tried zinc already and it didnt work, time for something else! I am thinking about ordering some Flaxseed oil or maybe GLA, has anyone had good results with those? What do you think of the following products and would you recommend taking them to battle acne? http://www.lef.org/newshop/items/item00756.html http://www.lef.org/newshop/items/item00463.html
  21. Well, I am not out yet whether everything Ben says about the NO connection between diet and acne is right or not, but I am sure that even if there is, is takes a gazillion fucking years to finally see some results! And by results, I'm not only talking about one reduced or faded zit as a result of a starving food pattern but I actually mean starting clearing up completely.I'm so fuckin frustrated right now, sorry but ugh, what the hell is going on!!!!!! I'm really this close to giving up!
