  • Breakouts (Skin)

    Did anyone else's skin start breaking out worse than usual when they first went Primal? Trying to figure out if that's what causing it, or if I need to start looking at other things...
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    I always break out when I lose weight I started supplementing with curcumin capsules and it has all cleared up now (finally).

      There're so many different causes of acne, I'm sure a significant change in your diet could cause your skin to be bothered. This isn't helpful, but my skin has stayed pretty much the same no matter what I eat. (i.e. bad)

      I heard somewhere that when you burn fat, the toxins that were trapped in it are released into the rest of your body. Dunno if that has any truth to it, though.

        It is. People can get heavy metal poisoning that way. No citations, at work right now.

          I have pretty decent skin, but I do tend towards breakouts when I either lose weight or cut something bad for me. For example, I just finally gave up soda this week, and my face has several "almost" blemishes in little patches on it, where there weren't any before.

          I use coconut oil as a moisturizer and that helps keep them from getting too bad and clearing up faster, but I expect I will have little skin issues until the stuff clears from my system.

            So...I'm probably stuck with it for awhile, or at least until I adjust to a new way of eating.

            Blargh.
