Fruitarian with Facial Acne
Hi Ted, Back in October 2011, I started eating bananas only as a diet, basically a fruitarian but mainly bananas, with around 2000 calories at day (51 kilos) my forehead started breaking out so I did b12 shots course 1 shot daily for a week, them one shot weekly for a month, which did not help and it may made it worst, I knew I had to start eating greens but at this point was still eating bananas, after 3-4 months I started eating cooked grains together with banana smoothies, and varied more my diet, and my acne went from my forehead to my cheeks, I noticed that tanning helps and exercises helps also eating big salads. I tried zinc, b5, cinnamon, chromium, which I feel sometimes helps but it has not been a cure, my cheeks are dry not oily, which its confusing, also notice increase in facial hair.
Now days, I eat no bananas, but hemp protein, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, few brazil nuts, millet, vegetables, basicly trying to keep a low glycemic vegan diet. still getting 3-4 big comedones in cheeks, blackheads in cheeks and nose, whiteheads speacially in forehead and scars specially in cheeks (pitted-hyperpigmentation). Im gonna be living in London, so I think I will have to take vitamin d supplements as Im dark skinned. I would like to keep my diet vegan and find a way to resolve my acne. I guessing something with my hormones, blood glucose levels, or a defficiency. Im latin, 27 yo. No children. never on the pill. Many thanks in advance!
