New to this community. Read a few topics and seems like there are a lot of knowledge on here.
I'm struggling with acne, soon 23 year old male. I breakout mostly on my lower cheeks/jawline and forehead.
I have tried Paleo before only eating fish, beef, vegetables and coconut oil. It first seemed to help a bit but I didn't get the results I was after.
I was thinking about trying again, but this time maybe put in some more starches that could improve my skin.
This is my shopping list so far (I have put an "?" on the things I'm not sure about, if it will help with my skin or just make it worse)
Salmon, Mackarel, Tuna
Grass fed beef, Grass fed lamb, Pork?, Chicken? Eggs (REALLY UNSURE OF THIS ONE?)
Cauliflower, Broccoli, Cabbage, Spinach. Yellow onions, Red onions. Olives? Sweet potatoes? Avocados?
Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil?
I think I have an eating disorder due to my acne and fear of eating things I don't know for sure will cause me any new flarups. What should I add to the list to get the full spectrum of all vitamins and minerals I need?
I hope you can give me some great tips on foods that will do wonders for my skin. Last time I did Paleo I think I was to low on carbohydrates, so if ther are any good starches or similiar out there that I'm not aware of, please give a shout!
I would like to get most of my vitamins and minerals from food but I do take extra Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin E, Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3 daily However it costs me a lot and I think it might be a better idea to put the money on more different foods?
What about fruits? Some say no no, some say OK cause they got much Vitamin C and other great antioxidants.
Thanks for your support
