I think it's making a difference (not to breakouts though) and obviously these things take time to really work. Also, which gelatin do you buy? I've found one on Amazon.co.uk by NOW Foods, 17 for 500grams, so quite a bit cheaper than great lakes. (like spk, I don't get enough protein in my diet and gelatin is a good way to get more, in the form of jello!)

    With the hair, protein is key since hair is made up on over 90% protein, I believe (Keratin).
    Hey Nstocks! I haven't actually started using it cos' I still haven't bought the solution to clean my roller with But I bought one from here: OwnDoc dermaroller - OwnDoc webshop

    It's the site that's recommended on the skin care forum I go to. that's great that it's working out for you though. I used my new copper peptides on my hands last night for the first time. Will be interesting to see what they do.

    I buy Dr. Oetker beef gelatine - it's 1.50 for 70gs and you can get it in most stores I much prefer knox though, but we can't get it here.

    Hair could honestly be anything... it's a symptom of so many things. I definitely get enough protein anyway.

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."

    Thanks for that link, they have very helpful information. The application is slightly different to what I've read to, better infact because it says to lift the roller after each pass which makes sense. They recommend Vit C for collagen... I always though it was Vit E for collagen. Ahh yes, I know about Dr. Oetker, we actually have some at home!

    No worries! Yeah, everything I've read about Dermarolling says to prep the skin first with VIt A and C. Most people say you have to do this with topicals, but there is some suggestion that focusing on dietary sources may be sufficient.

    This is a site I use sometimes - it's got soo much information on skin care and products. Maybe not your thing, but sometimes men do post their problems up there (things like acne, wrinkles etc). Maybe you could ask about your dark circles. EDS Skin Care Forum

    Right now I'm just using an organic Vit E cream and supplementing with liquid Vit E and A. I think that should be enough.

    I'm going to register right away and ask about my dark circles. It's quite worrying (and annoying) to have them at my age, let alone 19 years old when I first noticed them. One thing I've been doing lately is shaving with just warm water. No creams or anything, and I'm finding that my hairs are cut closer and I don't breakout as much after shaving. Also my skin is as smooth as glass. It doesn't look that way, but it's becoming a (bad) habit it mine to keep touching it because it's so soft! I think OJ helps skin too - I remember when I was in school I ate oranges for my packed lunch and how when I stopped, acne became worse.

    Let me know what they say! There's some great info on that site.

You've helped me discover things about myself that I don't think I would have noticed on my own. I hope we can have a chat again soon over aim, I really enjoy those <3
    Aw Ci, I'm sorry to read that... but not surprised at the same time. Do what you gotta do! And yeah, let's definitely talk on AIM again. SOon? <3

    Ha, feels like forever since I wrote in here, but it's only been four days Don't even know if anyone's still reading, but here goes.

    Feeling very weird about food again. When I came back from Ireland I was really hungry, and had three days in a row of eating "full calorie days" (estimating 2K). This isn't exactly a problem, because I'm tall and I'm active but I found it weird that my appetite had come back. Still being 7 lbs from my goal weight meant that I was enamoured with this.

    Then on Saturday, I was seriously craving ice cream all day. I ate my three meals, then went out with some friends and got desert (chocolate mouse and ice cream), then went to the grocery store and bought 1.5 litres of ice cream and ate it all Yesterday I didn't really eat, then today I ate even more than Saturday. I had my three meals, which came to circa 2K cals, then I ate two pints of vanilla ice cream, three square dark chocolate, and 220gs goat's cheese High fat foods.

    I wouldn't mind if it had just been Saturday that I'd done this, but twice in three days scares me. I still feel like I was craving fat, but I don't know why I suddenly need to eat so much...

    Thing is, things are good in my life! So I don't even feel like I'm comfort eating. Apart from a fight with my mum, my work, love, and social life are all pretty amazing. I've been really busy, but it's been good. Not sure what to make of all this...

    Feel free to chuck a shoe at me

    ETA:

    Last night I was walking through the park and a guy asked me for directions. We got chatting and he had a camera on him, and told me he was a photographer. Long story short, he started telling me I was beautiful and asked if he could take my pic, before offering to do free portfolio yoga shots. This was a great offer, so I gave him my number.

    Today I've literally gotten 30 phone calls and text messages from him today, begging me to meet him, and making raunchy comments about yoga porn...

    I never learn.

    You know how Ombat has this theory that appetite (in normal people) waxes and wanes in cycles. So maybe that's what's happening to you? Also, maybe you ate a lot today because you didn't really eat yesterday? When you don't really eat on one day, it's normal to eat a lot the next day. That's what I was doing on JUDDD.

    Yeah, my appetite comes and goes. I just ate like a horse yesterday after working my ass off moving my apartment on Saturday.

    Hey Yogabare! I've been a little MIA myself.

    I wonder if you could be getting a little deficient in the fat soluble vitamins? Maybe that's why you've been craving the fat. Or it could be that your metabolism has revved so much that you need it. Instead of carb cycling, you can do fat cycling. Hehe

    Sounds like that guy was preying on you in the park. What a creep! Years ago I worked at a lingerie store. A strange little man used to come in a ask me to model lingerie for money. He bothered me for months.

    I wouldn't worry about the appetite spikes. As active as you are and as diminished your appetite has been prior to that, it was bound to happen. I had one high-ish calorie day last week and then it went down back to normal. I agree that it's cyclical.

    Hi Brooke When I was in my early twenties I used to work at the jewelry counter of a department store. Every once in a while a man would ask me to 'model' some piece of jewelry for them and I did comply of course. Now I'm glad I didn't work in the lingerie section of the store
