I agree that I definitely need to eat more. This alone could be a internal stressor that causes my mild acne and cold body temperature! (or so I've heard) I don't do well with bananas and have no interest in rice. I'm upping sweet potatoes to 2 cups mashed per meal with meat for my dinner.
Meat over here is about £7 for 500g of minced lamb or beef. All organic, grass fed no chemicals etc. I only eat minced meat because its cheaper and I don't care for fancy cuts anyway. Would 400g of wild salmon be too much per week? (I have about 20KG!) Eggs are £3 for 10 organic.
I love to eat fruit in the AM (I don't eat breakfast) so could I just scramble some eggs one side side of fruit or something like that? It's weird for me to not have meat with animal products/eggs.
I'm going to work on exercise. I don't have any weights or equipment like that so I'll continue to look for bodyweight movements. Other than badminton, I've never been a motivated exerciser and that needs to change.
I've tried baking soda and it dried out my skin. The only thing I can think of, topically is African black soap, but since acne is internal I don't really want to spend more money on lotions and creams to try and mask the problem. (within reason!) I've also looked into hormone tests but they cost around £170 and don't seem very trustworthy. I've already asked my Doc about this and he refused to have me tested. (even though he strongly believes diet has no affect on acne)
I'll keep any updates on this thread and I would highly appreciate any advice for my mild skin condition.
