violetti Posted January 12, 2009 Share Posted January 12, 2009 Has anyone else had or still have the problem called unhealthylooking skin? If I ate too much sugar (like chocolate, candy...), the day or a few of days after skin in my face gives its reaction, pimples. If I eat too much sugar, my stomach also tells it. To me much sugar is a bit different thing than to my friends for example. Many friends can eat sugary things (and some of them also eat all food like cheese and kebab) more than I and their skin doesn't give any "comments" like my skin does. One big difference between me and most of people is that I have PCOS http://www.medicinenet.com/polycystic_ovary/article.htmand my PCOS is a quite angry one. Acne and hair loss are some of PCOS sympthoms and I have suffered from both. PCOS people also have not so good insuline levels and suffer from sugar addiction. Been there, done that. Taking supps and reducing sugary foods helps quite much. Sometimes my motivation is all gone Is my only way to skip almost all the sugary things? These days I don't eat candy and sugary foods that much but if I start to eat them even little, I'll eat them at least a couple of days. Not that much anymore but my skin tells if I ate too much. Of course it would be nice to have goodlooking skin and look pretty with no face powder etc. But I'm so conserned of my health because I know that my skin doesn't give those signs just for fun. If I got pimples, I know there's some probs. I eat enough fats like coldpressed oils, seeds and nuts and take care of my skin with nat cosmetics (creams) quite regularly. When I ate too little fats my skin felt dry and looked much worse. Should I just continue and wait for more results? I refused from hardline diets because of my background with ED. Of course I'm willing to try as sugarless diet as possible. I've also been said that it may be like that diet doens't help I don't want any medicins. I have done some changes and those changes have helped me. Still I'm a bit confused and worried. Sometimes it feels like my friends think I'm too worried. But when I was young (like 13 - 16 yo), my skin was so clear and pretty. When I turned 16, my PCOS started and got sympthoms but it took many years to get to know why I lost hair and got very bad skin and started to eat much much candy. I'd like to get my old skin and hair back because it would mean that things with my health wouldn't be in that horrible situation. Doctor (who isn't proffesional at all) suggested me to take contraceptive pills for regular menstruation etc. What happened? He wrote a recipe for the strongest pills and I got very bad sympthoms. Tried one month and never again. And how vegan is it to use contraceptive pills with lactose and surely animal tests before getting pills to pharmacy? And how healthy are those pills? And yes, this is fourth day with sugary things. Like 1,5 dl ice cream, strawberry jam with low sugar %, about 50 g chocolate, seitan wok with sweet chili sauce, one piece of nougat, chips which includes little sugar and the worst things 1 l Alpro's soy chocolate drink plus some pieces of whole cane sugar. Also dried apricots. All that during four days. Can't evaluate how much above mentioned amount is but I'm really afraid how my skin looks tomorrow morning or on Wed. Earlier I ate like 300 g candy almost every day But it was so connected with bad ED times and lack of info. I just didn't realized it's not normal if you want candy everyday although between bad ED times I had good times and eat well. Sometimes I can do nothing 'cos I just want some sugar And if this continues I may get diabetes although I'm not overweighted or medicins I don't want. I haven't tried low carb diet but at least my stomach stands well rice, quinoa, whole grain pasta. Perhaps the only problem is "quick carbs", not all carbs. So if you have some tricks regarding avoiding sugar or reducing sugar consumption, please be kind and share those tricks. Also tips for skin care based on nutrition is welcomed. I've noticed that nutrition has an impact how I feel but I still feel that those key solutions aren't in my hands yet. Or it can be it I'm too impatient.
