I would like to hear if people with adult acne have seen a difference in their skin after being on the diet.  Thank you.

Big difference! I suffered from breakouts regularly until I started this diet a few years ago. My skin is very smooth and breakout free! They only flare up when I indulge in foods that are avoids.

Big time improvements!! The avoids always come out of my skin in the form of painful nasty zits!!! I had lasagna by my mother-in-laws and I KNEW I would break out, low and behold, I did. I am 47, and I think my skin tone is better on BTD. Where my skin under my chin was getting a little "jowl-ly", it is now smooth and tight! Dairy or red meat is the culprit for me, an A. Wheat and dairy make my O teens break out. Avoid the avoids, and you will be pleasantly surprised!

I've been having great experiences with emu oil on a couple of really troubling white pimples that were deep down under the skin and "hanging around" for over a year. Now they are gone!


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Also get rid of the candida (yeast) and you will see a significant improvement.  I've been buying my face and body "soap" from Vermont Soaps.  All natural and organic.  

Good luck.

I used to raise Emu's and I know it does wonders for the skin. I had a small burn one time and as soon as I started applying the emu oil it went away and you could not tell I had burnt myself.
I can tell my skin is clearing up because there for awhile it looked like I was going through puberty late in life. I was breaking out all over (neck, face and back). So far so good with no breakouts.

I seemed to have gotten worse and I have been on the diet for 2 years now. I think I am having some immune reactions to different foods and it has taken me awhile to figure out which ones. Obivously wheat and corn, dairy, sugar are all on my list of things that I have found bother me. But lately its been soy thats the real problem with breakouts and dry blistering skin. So I have given up eating it. I just saw a new dermatologist and will see how the new cleansers and lotions do. If your really having trouble look at eliminating the usual suspects, wheat, corn, dairy, sugar, and soy one at a time and see if they are the ones giving you trouble it could be a food intolerence.

Definitely have seen a dif in complexion. Not only will acne flair if I eat avoids, I also will get swollen spots under the sides of my mouth that sorta looks like jowls. NOT attractive.
I agree w/ mikeo, if using soap......throw it away. I'll suggest a good grapeseed oil.......for cleaning and moisturizing.   http://www.grapeseedoil.com    has a good one. I think it has a store locator site on it as well. You might get lucky and find a store near you that carries it.

I can say with great delight that finally, here in my 30th year, my acne is almost gone.  We've discussed this subject several times on this forum, and candida keeps coming up as a culprit.  For me, if I eat any nightshade (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) my skin breaks out in huge, painful boils for months (sometimes one or two last for years, like Drea said).  But even after being very compliant with the A diet, it was still "hanging around," albeit certainly not nearly as bad.  

So I learned on this site that it might be systemic candida.  I've been as low-carb as possible the last few weeks with amazing results.  The point is to starve the candida so it can't make your body toxic and come out through your skin.  Yeast lives off sugar, so if you don't give it any, it'll die.  

The only fruit I'm eating is lemon, lime and grapefruit.  The only carbs I'm eating is cooked millet and quinoa and occasionally something like okra or squash coated lightly with rice flour and fried in olive oil, and very occasionally a slice of Ezekiel bread.  Within a week or so on this low-carb diet my skin cleared up.  I celebrated by eating a couple of plums (beneficial) one day and my skin broke out again.  

So evidently some of us have to be very, very careful with the amount of sugars we feed our bodies because any form of it will feed the candida, which may be causing the acne.

I am also interested in hearing about the idea that acne can be candida related.  My sons (3 out of 4) have acne
and they are O's and a B.  The youngest guy also has had tinea versicolor, that is  a skin type of fungus.  So I wonder
about the candida connection.  Thanks for reminding me to consider that....love this board!

yes, we have talked about all of this before!  and  the BIG reason I tried the BTD was to  heal my acne... which  it did.. totally...
when I eat wheat , dairy or too much sugar in fruit, my skin breaks out.  I'm almost 48, and I am so lucky to have finally found out how to control my skin.. it's really lovely now, but it used to be so awful.
I can't believe I finally saw a blurb in a magazine the other day that said  doctors may think there is a link between diet and acne..... FINALLY!!   I can't believe Dr. Perricone ( author) is the only one who  knows this...

Lately, I've been noticing a reaction to soy.  At least, it happens whenever I ingest soy.  When I wake up the next day after having soy products, my brain is really fuzzy - more like I can't function properly and I end up missing work cause I feel drugged or something.  Soy seems to be the common thread.  I will keep track of foods I eat to see how I react the next morning.  Too bad.  I just bought some soy protein to put in my smoothies.

I feel your 'pain'.  I have bought several types of egg white powder for protein shakes.........big container, as that's the only way they sell them.........they all bother me.........          Have YOU tried it? You might be able to tolerate it.

I'll certainly give it a try. I was also thinking of maybe trying rice protein as I don't seem to have problems with brown rice.
