I've done 2 experimental "diets". First one is pretty much Primal, with 130 carbs a day allowed, and a good amount of fat intake. Now let me describe my skin(especially face) on Primal diet:
Still blotchy looking complexion
I felt better then on A SAD diet of course, but, not enough to me standards.
The 2nd one was just meat, fish, eggs, and olive oil(small amounts), it was not 80/20 fat protein diet, but about 60/40 wasn't in it for ketosis. It was a zero-carb, zero-sugar diet. So this is how I looked:
Very even, tanned complexion(even a friend mentioned it to me)
No inflammation, active whiteheads, blackheads began coming out, no redness at all
Still oily somewhat, but manageable(was just glad I had no acne whatsoever)
The supplements I took on the both diets were:
Fish oil(maybe 8 pills a day, 360mg EPA)
Vitamin D(8,000IU daily)
Zinc (50-100mg daily)
Super B-complex(with Vitamin C)
What I got from this is: I should lay off sugars, natural or not, stick to high Omega 3-s from fish and supplementation, and My face will be acne-free soon enough. I plan to stick to this, and and add spinach(which tiny amounts of sugar)
Is this the way to go? I was also not bored by lack of choice for foods either on diet 2, i felt absolutely fantastic. Should I stick to the diet that suits me?
