A few months back I downloaded the 'Dietary Cure for Acne' and have been slowly moving the entire family over to the Paleo diet. This month we have begun the elimination diet, our primary motive is to journey along with, and support our 15yr old son who suffers from moderate acne. Not hurting our other teens either. Our son's acne is more of the red inflamed acne over his face predominately, breaking out with pimples when he goes on a sugar binge.
Some difficulties we encountered whilst graduating over is 15yr old trains 4xwkly for swimming. At 5am what does he eat? Finally he consented to trialling leftovers with an egg and is finding energy is fine, just as good as with the processed carbs and dairy.
The other to be frank is cost, we are a large family and the children are consuming vast amounts of fruit and vegies. Managing to keep within budget though, but problem is they say they are still hungry particularly the boys and husband, who do burn far more fuel. They are missing bread and potatoes.
I'd love to hear from others who have done this journey. How long before you saw a big difference with the acne once you began the elimination diet? How do you keep big fuel burners satisfied?
Much thanks Erin
