The missing piece to the Sugar and Acne puzzle

Sugar and Acne, Is there a connection?

“Everything you’ve ever heard about sugar and acne is only a tiny piece to a larger puzzle. The ‘rest of the sugar acne story’ revealed in this report.”

Many acne sufferers notice their acne flares when they eat sugar. And some even claim sugar is the cause of acne.

Yet nearly every dermatologist or doctor will tell you sugar has nothing to do with acne.

Well my friend they are BOTH wrong!

In this report you’ll discover exactly how sugar does and does not effects acne symptoms. And why sugar is NOT the cause of acne.

And most importantly, you learn what you should do to prevent sugar from aggravating your acne.

Understanding the sugar acne relationship

Yep, there most definitely is a relationship to sugar intake and acne. But that’s far from the whole story…

As revealed in my special report The TRUE Cause of Acne, all acne is caused by only 2 things…

Hormonal imbalance combined with a particular kind of highly congesting blood and lymph toxins.

But what does this have to do with sugar and acne?

Well, I’m about to unravel this mystery before your very eyes 😉

Stay with me…Because this information is going to be very beneficial for you as an acne sufferer. Here is where it gets interesting…

Your HORMONAL response to sugar

Just what happens after you eat sugar?

Well right of the bat your blood sugar levels rise rapidly. To bring blood sugar levels down your body excretes hormones…particularly insulin and other androgenic hormones.

These hormones signal your body’s cells to upon up their “doors” and let the sugar in.

The primary places blood sugar goes is the cells of the liver and the cells that make up the muscles. They “fill up” just like inflating a tire or filling up a water balloon.

But what happens when they are all full to capacity?

Well, any excess blood sugar is then converted by your liver into long chain fats (basically LARD). This “lard” is then transported to your fat cells and stored as fat.

End effects of consuming EXCESS sugar

Sugar, unlike other more complex starches, raises blood sugars rapidly. It is metabolized (“burned”) very quickly in your system.

It spikes blood sugar levels in direct proportion to how much you ingest at one time. The more you ingest the greater the spike in blood sugar levels.

This spike in blood sugar causes your body to excrete a SURGE of hormones all at one time.

It also causes a surge of high blood fats (LARD) all at one time.

So the end effect is it overwhelms your system with hormones and blood fats.

All these excess androgenic hormones cause your skin sebum glands to go into hyper drive…producing way too much skin oil. Add to that the excess blood fats floating around and the end results is aggravation of an already existing acne condition.

So if sugar aggravates acne then why can some people eat all the sugar in the world yet still have flawless skin?

Great question….

Why sugar aggravates acne in some and NOT in others

Here’s the missing piece to the sugar acne relationship you’ve been looking for…

Ingesting too much sugar alone will not aggravate acne. It’s only when you overwhelm the liver with excess hormones that acne will flare.

The liver is what “deactivates” and “clears” excess hormones from your system.

But it only has so much capacity to do that.

So the reason sugar aggravates your acne, while your friend can eat all the sugar they want and still not get acne is because their liver function is much stronger.

Their liver is able to quickly “deactivate” and “clear” any excess hormones. So they never sufferer hormonal imbalance. And they never sufferer from acne.

But you’re liver capacity in this regard is significantly “shackled”. That’s why even a little bit of sugar can aggravate your acne.

How to PREVENT sugar from aggravating your acne

So what’s the solution?

Well, you’ve got to “build” and “strengthen” your liver function in this regard. Once you do that, then you’ll be able to eat some sugar yet still have perfect skin.

So you can see it’s NOT sugar itself that causes acne, but a liver that is drastically compromised and overwhelmed with too many hormones all at one time.

Sugar only aggravates an already compromised situation.

You can’t really cure acne by giving up sugar. You can only lesson the severity or manage acne symptoms. But to cure acne permanently you must “rebuild” and “revitalize” liver function.

How do you do that?

Boy isn’t that the million dollar question. And luckily I have the million dollar answer. And it took years of work to figure out. Luckily you don’t have to wait years. To find out how take The Acne Cure E-Tutorial.

Sugar and acne: The bottom line…

Until you “build” back liver capacity to clear hormones you should avoid chocolate. You should avoid all processed sugars. And ingest vary sparingly simple natural sugars such as honey, molasses, or maple syrup. Doing that is the only way any acne alternative treatments will work.

You should avoid ALL fruit juices except the low-sugar fruit juices from fresh lemon and lime.

Why?

Because sugar from fruit juice (without the fiber of the fruit) enters your blood stream too quickly. It just spikes blood sugars too violently for you as an acne sufferer.

In addition to that, high sugar fruits such as bananas should also be eaten in small quantities at any one time.

The key is NOT to overwhelm your system at any one time with excess sugar at any one time.

But I gotta have something sweet!!!

Hey, I hear you. I know where you’re at. I have a sweet tooth as well.

What if there was a way to enjoy all the sweet stuff you enjoy now yet NOT aggravate your acne in any way? And not get fat from them either?

Well, the good news is I’ve discovered a way.

Using this discovery you can immediately enjoy all the sweet things you do now, yet suffer NONE of the bad effects of excess sugar. It’s really a pretty amazing discovery.

The ONLY Path to LASTING Acne-Free Skin

“You can try all the acne cures, treatments, or acne remedies, but you won’t enjoy LASTING freedom from your acne until you do this…”

Yes there is a physical difference inside you between you as an acne sufferer and some who has flawless, acne-free skin.

Understanding this difference is the key that unlocks the door to LASTING acne-free skin.

The secret to LASTING freedom from acne

How come some suffer from acne and some don’t?

Is diet?

Nope…people eat all kinds of different diets, yet some get acne and some don’t. Even some of those on “junk food” diets still enjoy flawless skin. While others eating “perfectly” still suffer from acne.

Is it a nasty acne bacterium?

Nope…it’s not that either. If bacteria was the cause of acne acne would be highly contagious…which it isn’t (See The Acne Bacteria Myth for more details).

What about genetics? Isn’t it my parents fault?

No doubt about it genetics do play a role. But if “bad” genes were the cause of acne then your acne symptoms would stay relatively constant (your genes aren’t changing)…Not flaring at times then subsiding at other times like most acne sufferers acne symptoms do.

So what is it? What is the difference between acne sufferers and NON-acne sufferers?

Well my friend lean in close because this is the million dollar answer to all you acne questions….

The PHYSICAL difference between non-acne sufferers and acne sufferers

The cause of all acne boils down to hormonal imbalance and a particular type of congesting blood and lymph toxins (see The TRUE Cause of Acne). And the PHYSICAL, INTERNAL problem causing hormones to get out of balance and toxins to build up in the blood boils down to a particular aspect of the function of your liver.

Your liver is what “deactivates” and “clears” excess and previously “used” hormones from your system. And it also purifies your blood of congesting blood toxins.

Liver function in this aspect is the KEY to hormonal balance and pure blood….which will lead to flawless, acne-free skin.

So the difference between you as an acne sufferer and someone with perfect, acne-free skin all boils down to this aspect of liver function.

Your liver simply isn’t strong enough to keep your hormones in balance and your blood pure. It is getting overwhelmed with excess hormones and blood toxins.

It can’t keep up.

These excess hormones and toxins “spill over” into your blood…causing your dreaded acne condition.

On the other hand, someone with perfect, acne-free skin has much “stronger” liver function in this aspect. It is able to quickly “deactivate” and “clear” any excess hormones and blood toxins. As a result their hormones stay in perfect balance. Their blood stays pure. And because of that they enjoy flawless, acne-free skin.

The ONLY path to LASTING acne-free skin

So the key to LASTING freedom from your acne isn’t just to follow a special acne diet. It isn’t to take a drug or acne anti-biotic. And it isn’t endlessly ingesting an herbal or homeopathic acne remedy…

What will cure your acne is to take that “weak”, malfunctioning liver you have right now and “building” it into a stronger, more powerful organ…Kinda like replacing a small 4 cylinder engine with a powerful V8, 350 horsepower engine.

Once you do that your liver will be able to handle any amount of hormones or blood toxins. It will have enough “capacity” and “power” to do so.

Once you “build” a strong liver your hormones will stay in perfect balance. Your blood will be clean and pure. And your acne will disappear almost magically. And your health, energy, and physical well-being will be revolutionized to boot.

How to “build” a stronger, more powerful liver

So how do you do it? How do you “build” a more powerful liver?

Well, until recently no one really knew how to do it. Even the very best techniques didn’t work very well. But after years of dedicated research and experimentation I’ve developed a program that effectively “builds” liver function in this regard.

Using this program I’ve cured my own severe acne, and I’ve helped thousands of others do the same.

While it won’t be easy, and WILL take work once you’ve completed this program your liver will be healthy and strong. And you will enjoy lasting acne-free skin.

So if you are done trying the “quick fix” acne cures and you are ready for a LASTING solution to your acne problem it is something you must checkout.

Iodine and Acne

“Does Iodine Cause Acne?”

Get the results of my iodine and acne tests in this report

For years and years dermatologists have claimed that there was a link between iodine in the diet and acne. They say iodine will induce acne in an acne prone person.

Well, I’ve tested this theory again and again.

I’ve tested various doses and sources of iodine. And I’ve tested cutting out ALL iodine. And I have yet to make any kind of connection between iodine and acne. I’m not saying it doesn’t exist, all I’m saying is I’ve certainly never been able to find a connection.

If there is a connection then it’s a very, very tiny factor. I wouldn’t even worry about it.

If you want to give the theory a test you could try drastically lowering your iodine dose.

You will find iodine highest in sea vegetables like kelp, seaweed, or algae. Many types of seafood are also high in iodine. Anything with carragennan and dulse in it will have higher levels of iodide because it is derived from seaweed. Salt will often be iodized but you can get non-iodized salt. Also check any supplements you may be taking for high levels of iodine.

So give it a try…see if you can make a connection.

But I doubt you will.

You should be aware that iodine is a necessary nutrient. However, it would take months and months of an iodine deficient diet before you would start to see any serious symptoms.

The Hypoglycemic Index and Acne, the WHOLE Story

The Hypoglycemic Index and Acne, the WHOLE Story

“Discover the CRUCIAL Missing Piece to the Hypoglycemic Index and Acne Relationship”

The hypoglycemic index is an index that measures how quickly any given food will raise blood sugar levels. Many people have noticed a correlation between foods high on the index and acne…

But this perspective is incomplete.

In this report I will explain exactly why the hypoglycemic index should be largely ignored when it comes to acne. And what you should pay attention to instead.

Hypoglycemic index and acne, the fatal flaw

The hypoglycemic index in theory seems like a useful indicator of your bodies blood sugar response to foods. However, in practice its pretty much useless.

Let me explain…

More important then how quickly a food is metabolized into simple sugars is whether or not at any one given time you eat so much of these type of foods that you overload your system with sugar.

Your “sugar reservoir”…the CRUCIAL missing piece to the hypoglycemic index and acne puzzle

Think of your system as a bathtub…

You have water running into the tub, and you have water running down the drain.

Well, the water running into the tub would be the sugar entering your system as a result of food metabolization. The pressure at which the water ran into the tub would be the value of that particular food on the hypoglycemic scale. The volume at which the water flowed into the tub would be the amount of that food or food combination you consumed. So you could have high pressure but not much volume.

The water running out would be the sugar being burnt as energy by your metabolic rate. Your muscular tissue burns most of the sugar, and the more active you are (exercise) the more sugar you burn.

If you fill the tub faster then the water runs out eventually the tub is going to overflow. And this overflow would be akin to overwhelming your system with too much sugar from food metabolization.

Well, the tub in this analogy would be your body’s “sugar reservoir” which is primarily your muscles and your liver. The more muscle you have the larger your sugar reservoir. Your body will store most of the sugar to be used as energy in the muscle tissue and the liver.

But what happens once the muscles and liver are totally loaded to capacity with sugar?

Well your body deals with excess sugar in 2 ways…

1. It excretes it through the kidneys in the urine.

2. The liver converts it into long-chain triglycerides (lard) to be stored as fat.

“Overflowing” your “sugar reservoir”…the disastrous results

So if you “overflow the bath tub” what you’re doing is overloading your blood stream with lard. The same blood and lymph that supplies your skin is also transporting lard to the fat cells where it is stored until you burn it off through physical exercise.

Loading your blood and lymph with this excess lard is what causes that greasy forehead look. So you do not want to run high blood “fat” levels by ingesting too many carbohydrates and simple sugars at any one time.

In addition to that, to deal with all the blood sugars that overwhelmed your system your body has to excrete a surge of insulin and other androgens at one time. All these hormones in your blood at one time overwhelm your liver’s ability to deactivate and expel them. So overflowing the “tub” upsets hormonal balance.

The key here is not “overflowing” the tub. If the water is running out of the tub quickly due to a high metabolic rate then you can ingest more sugars and starches. And in fact at times of high physical activity you need more sugars and starches.

It is not so much the rate at which foods turn to sugar (what the hypoglycemic index of a food reveals) that is important, but whether you overwhelm your system with too much sugar at any one time (the volume). So you can see why the hypoglycemic index is too simplistic a perspective when it comes to acne.

Acne and Diet Factors

“Is there an acne diet that works?”

“The surprising TRUTH about the acne diet issue revealed in this report”

Any dermatologist will tell you that diet has nothing to do with acne.

Then at the other end of the spectrum you have others who claim that you can cure your acne with a “special” diet alone.

What’s the real scoop?

Well my friend, if you’re looking for acne diet answers then you’ve come to the right place.

What you’re about to discover in this report is the result of years of tireless research and experimentation. After you’ve read this report you will know exactly the role diet plays in acne, what acne diet “common wisdom” is pure myth…

And mostly importantly what acne diet factors get results, and what “acne diets” are a complete waste of time and sometimes dangerous.

Does diet affect acne?

After I gave up on traditional acne treatments to cure my acne one of the first natural acne treatments I turned to was dietary factors.

Believe me I tried them ALL over the course of years…vegetarianism, veganism, the Wai diet, the mucus-free diet, the low-carb diet, Atkins, frutarianism, the raw food diet, macrobiotics, Fit For Life, the Natural Hygiene diet, the alkaline diet…just to name a few.

I tried them ALL with 110% passion and conviction…I never cheated…I followed them to the letter, and carefully monitored the results of each dietary approach and it’s affect on acne.

And I’m telling you from direct and personal experience, and all my experience helping other acne sufferers…

No acne diet ALONE will cure acne!

You simply cannot cure acne with diet alone. There are underlying INTERNAL problems causing your acne that you’ve got to DIRECTLY address and correct which no acne diet can do.

Think about it…If the wrong diet caused acne then virtually everyone eating the “wrong diet” would suffer from acne to some degree or another…which isn’t the case.

But…

There ARE some VERY key dietary principles that relate to acne (BUT DO NOT CAUSE ACNE) that you must understand.

The program covers ALL the basic dietary principles that DIRECTLY effect acne, how they effect acne, and everything you should know about diet and acne, and it uncovers all the myth and lore surrounding the acne diet issue.

But please understand it is NOT a “special” acne diet. No acne diet can cure acne without first correcting the root cause of acne.
