So Ive been a vegetarian for 2.5 yrs now. Recently read the kind diet and have decided to eat superhero/vegan as much as possible. I started gaining weight about 5 years ago (when I starte d taking bc pills + had super stress) and my skin also started breaking out then, which pretty much had never ever happened before. I am now 130lbs heavier than I was 5 years ago. I decided to stop taking bc (not only because extra hormones in your body is weird, but because I read it slows your metabolism etc) and now my skin is freaking out even more. Do you all have any tips on weight loss/pretty skin that goes along with the kind diet guidelines? Today is my 3rd day of superhero though I slipped up and drank like 2 gulps of lemonade earlier :/
I'm guessing that, by this point, you've probably already started to see amazing results by following the Kind Diet; so you may no longer need advice on this subject. But I'm going to add my input anyway :P
I would suggest listening to your body and following your bliss (I'm learning to be all about following my bliss). Find a form of physical activity that you love, and commit to making time for it on a consistant basis. Do you like to walk? Find somewhere beautiful, where you can commune with nature and get fresh air while you walk (don't stick yourself on a treadmill staring at a wall, or the rear ends of a bunch of other people...unless you enjoy it). Like video games? Get the Biggest Loser workout for Wii. My husband and I are having a blast playing around with ours. Enjoy sex? Find a willing partner and burn lots of calories!!! Dance, play, do whatever brings you true joy.
Amazingly, joy will also assist with your skin condition. Stress contributes to breakouts like you wouldn't believe! Laugh, meditate, sleep well, spend time with people you love...these things will help you more than any purchased "miracle cure" cream or soap on the market. Then, I would just suggest keeping your skin clean. Try not to cover up with too much foundation, it just promotes clogged pores. Use a soft facecloth dipped in warm water, and a little bit of unscented glycerin soap to wash your skin at least twice a day. Chances are, your skin will tend to get a little bit worse before it gets better. All of that gunk stuck in your pores has to come out before your skin can heal itself.
I hope some of this helps...even more though, I hope my advice comes unnecessarily and too late :)
The 3-Day Cleanse is a simple yet effective program built around fruit and vegetable juices. After the cleanse, the authors claim that you will no longer feel bloated, your skin will be clear, excess weight will be eliminated and you will have plenty of energy. All you need is a juicer, the recipes and organic produce. During the 3 days, you drink nothing but purified water, fresh juice and tea. The fruit juices are naturally sweet with no added sugar. You will also be making your own vegetable juices from the freshest ingredients.
