That's what i'm doin'. Glad to hear you approve. Not sure what's happening either but i'm done forcing my will onto my body. No cravings but the only other food I seem to want is smoked salmon - not any other kind like baked/fresh salmon, just smoked salmon.
That's awesome. I've pretty much been doing the same - lots of nature adventures.
Sorry about the acne. It sucks. I used to get cystic acne, and it was awful! It stopped after I cut out wheat. Not sure what's causing yours though.
Thanks, Di. I did have soy sauce (which does have a small amount of wheat) on something last weekend but that was 6 days ago... And I seem to have some form or acne no matter what I'm eating with the exception of a few days once every month or so of perfectly clear skin. I 'unno.

Appetite is still down (1000 kcals for the day) and nausea is back intermittently. Energy is up, headache is gone - just jogged to/around campus and back.
I have nothing to report on really except that all I did today was tab "Blurred Lines" on my uke (yes it IS awesome) and watch Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. OOOO and I got a library card so that I could check out music, burn it, and then exchange it for more. Yeah. *feels like a dick*
I had never heard of a dermaroller - just had to look up what it was. I can see how it would be beneficial to heal the skin once acne is gone but wouldn't it be imprudent to use it on skin currently containing acne? Just seems like it would spread bacteria.
I surprisingly have very little scarring. I do have a super prescription retinoid called tazorac (or tazarotene) which is great for spot treatment. However, as it is also effective in eating through the flesh on your face, I can only use it as a treatment once every few days and I absolutely cannot use it as a preventative measure.
I've ordered some of these before, as a gift, and they really liked them.
I'm interested in that exfoliant; I feel like I'm constantly raking dead skin off my face (sorry). Interesting (and clever) that it contains bromelain. Do you think I could make my own bromelain topical treatment?
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
