    I am trying to go gluten-free and low-glycemic, so I've switched from oatmeal and OJ to eggs and vegetables in the morning. I don't eat PB&J, and without being vegetarian and thus consuming beans all the time, I would be getting no fiber, so at least there's that. I've hardly pooped since Monday, and I have a couple of flare-ups now that could be stress-induced, but I'm also concerned about what kind of toxins are backing up.
  2. I'm going to try going low-glycemic as a solution to my acne, but I think I'll have have a hard time iterating to friends why I can't eat this or that. I've also been vegetarian since I was in high school and I would be willing to give that up at this point in my life if I found a diet that worked but was otherwise too difficult to manage nutrition-wise, calorie-wise, variety-wise. I think explaining that away would be too difficult, as I've considered going back before for other health reasons
  3. Hi, I'm looking for a good vegetarian protein supplement thats gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. Can somebody recommend something like that? Would a whey protein supplement be good enough for somebody who's trying to be on a pcos diet? Does whey contain lactose? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks

    It's FINALLY cured !!!

    Half of my life (16 to 33) I had acne on the back, butt, arms, etc. To cure it, I tried diet (low fats, vegetarianism, no sweets, no alcohol, etc), I tried holistic (little white pills, acupuncture, weird techniques), I tried the prescribed and over-the-counter topical medications, I tried with exercise and without exercise. Nothing changed. After years of believing Accutane was only for the super-severe cases, I tried it. I reviewed the many risks and decided for myself that I was very he

    Vegetarian Diet

    Some people say that acne is God punishing us for some reason. Well eating meat as much as we do could be one of those reasons. I now follow a ovo-lacto-vegetarian diet. Research says that vegetarians could live around 10 years longer than the average meat eater. A vegetarian diet is lower in fat, saturated fat and cholesterol which lowers your risk for heart disease. A couple of the main reasons i switched my diet to a vegetarian diet was when i found out how meat reacts in our digestive
  6. I know that we are all different and as such, different dietary regimens will work for us. Yet it seems like some of us are divided into groups where a group of us avoid pretty much the same things and another group avoids pretty much the same things and we both achieve around the same level of results. However there are other members that have changed their diets, and have not seen similar results as 90%, 95%, 99% or 100% clear skin. It would be great if those of us that found that dietary
  7. I've had acne since middle school, and I'm now a college sophomore. Needless to say, it's been a nuisance. I've been on Accutane twice, both times during high school; each was very helpful, but some degree of acne came back. For the last year I've had mild acne, kept that way with minocycline (which seems to be effective for me, but I'd certainly prefer not to use it in the long term due to the risk of side effects), Differin (I tried Tazorac, but it was too harsh for my skin), and various ot
  8. Hi there I have wondered about the connection between diet and acne. First of all, my acne/rosacea (the rosacea bit is early stage, only just diagnosed) has been very persistant for the last 10 yrs or so. I am a 26 yr old female - I have been on most antibiotics, dianette, and numerous topical solutions (all have had differing degrees of success - but only fairly short periods of remission). Anyway, the reason I am posting is that I feel a bit overwhelmed by trying to discover if there's any
  9. So, who here actually follows the current Official Food Pyramid http://www.annecollins.com/nutrition/balanced-diet.htm ? The Vegetarian Food Pyramid http://freedietlinks.com/foodpyramid.htm ? Or the Vegan Food Pyramid http://www.fitnessandfreebies.com/fitness/...s/veganfgp.html or http://www.nutrispeak.com/veganpyramid.htm I certainly don't, I've always eaten what I wanted because I've always been thin. However, I definately no longer follow their reccommendation of eating 11 servi

    Help! My skin is on fire.

    Hey guys! I've suffered with bad skin since my early teens. I remember my first spot like it was yesterday. Mum handed me the concealer and I've had a hate-hate relationship with my skin ever since. I was always told that my teenage troubled skin would disappear as I got older, but here I am in my twenties desperately scavenging the internet for a dribble of hope for my skin's future! As I'm sure many of you have done too, I've tried all kinds of things that I've read about on the net and spe

    LadyApple's Juice-journey

    Hi About my journey till now; I'm 19 and have had back acne since the age og 12(moderat to severe i guess). At the age of 16, unfortunately I also started getting it on the chest too(light). So this is the places it is bothering me the most. Though is might be worth mentioning that I have some whiteheads on the forhead as well, but it's getting better. It is first this year that I've started really treating it, except avoiding sugars for the last 4 years. I'm just sad I didn't start before
  13. Hi there, I'm Zeru, nice to meet you. c: I've had acne since I was about ten years old. From a very young age up (until about seventh grade), I wore my hair in the same way: very long, with bangs. I still remember my first pimple, weirdly enough--my skin was totally clear except for one pimple on my forehead. Being a ten year old girl, I was morbidly embarrassed. And the solution, of course, was to hide up this pimple with those lifelong bangs I always had. Within a year or so, I had
  14. When i put the moisturizer on at night, it creeps over my lips. Because of this ive been getting BP in my mouth when i sleep. Im following instructions very well but this keeps happening. I dont put it on my lips but it finds its way there. When i put the BP on at night it stays in place just fine and seems to dry well. But when i apply the moisturizer my skin sweats it back out or becomes very greasy in feeling and the moisturizer has been sliding over my lips when im not putting it on my li
  15. I realized the other day that i am allergic to avocados. They are supposed to be 'healthy" but if I eat them, I get a headache and feel itchy and get red rashlike bumps on my chest . Not "severe" but nonetheless, they are not healthy for everyone. There are a lot of doctors pushing the benefits of "superfruits" mangos, goji berries, coconut oil, etc. My little theory is, what is good for you personally has a lot to do with your genetic backround and ethnicity. For example, Mexicans probably pr
  16. For those of you who plan to bring a side to a family member's house or are stuffing turkeys yourselves: What's your mode of action? Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I will be doing a large majority of the cooking. Boyfriend wants to do mango turkey, I'm thinking about making some kind of lightly cooked cranberry dish, something with sweet potatoes, a large salad, and some kind of dessert(s). Maybe I'll attempt to make zuchini noodles with soup as I haven't tried that yet. I think a
  17. I've been reading good things about taking fish oil supplements and would like to try it but as a vegetarian I wont be ingesting anything which comes from a fish, I'm highly intolerant to all fish and meat products after many years of vegetarianism so even though I'm so desperate to get rid of my acne I'll try anything I wont try something which is going to make me sick. So I was wondering is there a vegetarian alternative that works as well? Once upon a time I took flax seed oil instead of cod
  18. So, I've been breaking out like crazy the past week or so, and I've been pretty down about it. Lately I've been feeling a little fed up with bp...the bleached towels and hair, the large pores, and overall yucky texture of my skin. I've been thinking of switching my routine for a while now... Especially now that I'm preggers. I've been wanting to try something organic. Something that's actually GOOD for my skin. So I was at Target and came across these products by Giovanni. It's a detox system wi

    Organic Dairy Products

    Here is a little background on my situation. I have been a vegetarian for 10 years and have struggled with an eating disorder for about 8 years. I have been working very hard on my eating issues for the passed two years. I have struggled with mild to moderate acne since I hit puberty at about 14. Recently I went on birth control (beyaz) to help with my hormones and PMDD. It really has done wonders for my skin but I am still getting small pimples here and there. I have debated if I should cut out

    Meat and Acne

    Hello, I've had acne since I was about 16, and it's gotten worse over the years. I'm now 21 and it's the worst it's ever been. I've tried.... Dianette Yasmin BP Adapalene/Differin Freederm Lymecyclin Doxycycline Oxytetracycline Erythromycin and none of it seems to have helped! I noticed some difference with all of the antibiotics, but nothing that major. Of course, now I'm off antibiotics acne is worse than it ever was. I had a dermatologist appointment last week, where I was told my ac

    A few questions...

    I just have a couple of questions then I'll probably be gone, seeing as I don't like talking about...this. I'm only here because I'm tried of friends going "o lol well just get u sum proactive and u'll get a gf no prob" Is butter, like, Land-o-lakes butter, ok to use with food or does it cause acne? Same with chocolate milk and peanut butter. Also, I'm not turning vegetarian, but I want to cut out meats for a while. What would I eat instead? I know, lame that I don't know what else to eat

    Another unoriginal "this is how I got clear" thread

    Too many people throw around the word clear as their status, which in my opinion is blemish free skin and highly unlikely. Anyways, I have blackheads on my nose, and a few on my forehead, but in terms in visibility, my face appears extremely clear to the point that it looks clear from afar. I was NOT doing anything special either...I just changed my habits and didn't worry about it. So since January this is what I've done, kept doing consistently, and not even high-sugar/fiber free meals mess
  23. Hi there I will tell you my symptoms and what I am planning to do about them. Could you please give me an idea of whether I am thinking along the right lines? I am 37, and for the past 15 years or more, I have been having progressively worse digestive problems - mainly a feeling of bloating and heaviness after eating that now seems to be triggered by almost any food, even in small amounts, and is with me almost constantly. There is also flatulance and belching quite a lot, and sometimes diar

    Desperate is the only word for it.

    Hey, I'm new here, hoping for some help please. Just FYI I'm 18yo female. Here's what I'm currently facing; Oily/combo skin (normal to oily cheeks, very oily t-zone) Weirdly, my skin has always been this type throughout my teens, but only the past 2 years I've been dealing with acne/breakout issues. Nose always has blackheads, occasional cyst on chin, forehead is a series of under the skin bumps I'm not sure what they are (papules?), as well as whiteheads. This has always been my 'norm' for
  25. Hey guys, I've never posted here before but last year I was having some problems with acne flare ups. Mine was never severe but it was more annoying than anything. I had the occasional cystic acne, but other than that it was fairly mild. I couldn't find anything that really worked until I started using Clearasil Pore Cleansing Pads and Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask all from WalMart. I had a limited budget and these are all fairly low cost and last quite a while. I use the Cleanser in the m
