Re: Vegetarian diet
Aug 25, 2002
Since you are well beyond the age of puberty, what options have you tried? I know that I've and some others have been posting how food can relate to some people's acne.

So if you are a vegetarion or a vegan, you will more than likely aggrivate the condition. That's because you eliminated your meat, etc protein source and are now eating soy. For some people eating soy may be problem.

However my guess is that the biggest culprit would be all or at least some of the grains that you were/are eating as a vegetarian. These past few months I've learned that Wheat is a huge culprit, only some people may not even know it (scary huh). Also, after several small studies (hopefully a large one one day), apparently carbohydrates and nightshades can cause rheumatoid arthritis. Since this is an autoimmune disease, carbs and nightshades and some other foods have been found to cause/create other autoimmune diseases such as Crohn's Disease and Diabetes I.

For those that don't know, carbohydrates are Starch, Sugar, Fruit, Vegetables, and Grains. Starch comes from Potatos and other Starchy Vegetables (would corn be one?). Fruit's and most vegetables are generally considered safe because they contribute Fiber which helps with constipation, trapping excess insulin, estrogen, and other hormones. So Fibrous Foods are always good to have. Sugar is well... Nightshades consist of Chili Peppers, Bell Peppers, Egg Plant, Tomotatos, and Potatos. I don't know if any of you have incorporated these in your diet, but if you've exhausted other options, hopefully one day you might want to try tweeking your diet a bit more. =)
