  • Pimples!

    Day 11 and I'm breaking out in small red pimples!

    Anyone else have this happen? I'm assuming it's a 'good' sign... (detox?) though I'm not quite sure. Should I be worried?

    I found that while eating primally, I too broke out some. It took some experimentation to find that nuts and dairy still make me break out quite bit.

    How much dairy and nuts do you consume?

    Two important questions to ask yourself every week:
    Did I run faster and farther this week than I did last week?
    Can I lift more weight and do more repetitions that I did last week?

      I started eating primal about 2 weeks ago and shortly after starting my skin and hair started getting super oily. My face and back has been breaking out which is very unusual for me. I am with you that it must be a sign of detox! At least I hope.

        I seem to break out a little from eating bread or possibly other grains. I guess that would indicate it's certain antinutrients that do it for me.

          I don't have nearly the breakouts now that I'm primal (yeah, I'm 60 and I Still get pimples.) At this point, it seems linked mostly to stress -- I break out about four days before going on a trip. Always. In a prominent place, of course.

          As to your current problem -- it could very well be detox and your "new" diet. Keep a food diary/health diary/complexion diary -- and that will answer your questions better than anything else.
