    You know it’s interesting that you mention the soda thing. Nothing will make my temp soar faster than drinking soda. I grew up being a big soda drinker. I wonder if my regular soda habit kind of kept my thyroid fire going. Of course it’s horribly negative effects were rapid tooth decay, and acne. I remember one time when I was like 20, and I was on my lunch break at work and I was buying a 20 oz pepsi, and a candy bar. My co-worker looked at my 5’3″ 115lb. frame, and said, “wtf?”. At the time I just shrugged my shoulders and walked away.

    I’m not sure if this is a question.

    Uhhh… I’m not sure. Head on over to the acne.org forum. That’s where I started. Talk to the folks who’ve had acne for 25+ years. These are some really smart people that can school some folks on nutrition and health protocol. Their is a healthy alternative section on the board. I too was one of the people that have been permanently scarred by my acne, and psoriasis. It started when I was 11 years old. I’m now 29. I manipulated my diet and lifestyle for 15 years before I found answers. I can tell you more than you want to know about skin. I researched it the way some people research health in general here. Their is no mistaking what causes my acne, and most of the other people on the board as well. It’s a horrible disease that can have leave emotional traumatic scars as well as physical.

    I myself personally like to ram the hell out of the pleasure spot in my brain. I’ve always had a sort of “restlessness” about me.

    I’m struggling with the same issue. I’ve been doing it for a year and a half as well. Improvements only seem to be temporary, and I find that it just gives me an excuse to overindulge. I used to be a smoker, drinker, drug user, gym fanatic, chronic dieter. If you have an addictive type personality, “eating the food” can have some negative consequences.

    I worked at a health food store when the HCG thing got popular. I talked with so many people that did it. Every single person that I knew who did the program gained the weight back, no exaggeration. I was one of the few people that didn’t agree with it, and would not promote it within our store.

    Long time sufferer from acne as well. It’s actually why I’m even here. I started a Paleo diet over 6 years ago to try and clear up my skin. It worked but my health suffered in the long run. The biggest thing I learned about acne is that for a lot of people, and definitely myself is that it’s an inflammatory skin disease usually most related to your insulin levels. Basically living almost as a diabetic. I remember one time on an acne forum one time I read someone’s recommendation for acne was to “Eat, breath, and live like a diabetic”. The biggest thing that affects your blood sugars are: Stress, sleep, food, exercise.

    I’m sometimes fascinated by how methodical a man’s brain is.

    I have some of the same symptoms. Diabetes runs in my family like crazy. I know I’m still young, but from all the years of research I believe diabetes to be of course a stress related disease. The reality is that it’s culprit seems to be erratic blood sugar. I think most people have a regular pancreas, but nothing will make your blood sugar be more wacky than a stress response. You can literally have almost the same reaction to an very stressful bit of news, as if you drink a 20 oz soda straight. Recognizing that stress is the root seems to be imperative to life-long vigilance to this disease. That being said, I think that diet, and proper exercise do a lot as well.

    Try this very inexpensive tricks……Apple Cider Vinegar! For real, it’s the most natural way to increase your hydrochloric stomach acid. It works for me. A lot of times someone’s heartburn is related to low stomach acid, which is why some people are recommending Betaine or HCL. If you’re on this board you’re probably a freak and already have it in your cupboard.

    I have the same acne reaction to soda. I love it, and it hydrates me way better than any other liquid, but I’m already genetically susceptible to insulin resistance, so it definitely breaks me out.

    My digestion got fucked up years ago when I had a very stressful time in my life, as well as starting a Paleo diet. I literally never had any digestive problems until the age of 23. It’s never been the same since. I think the chronic lack of sleep never really allows my hormones to function at peak so I’m always acutely aware of what’s going on with the digestion. Perhaps give your digestive tract some assistance until perhaps you can get back on track. You know herbs, and whatnot.

    in reply to: Caffeine… is it really so bad? #7931

    I think if you treat it as what it is. Caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, ginseng, etc….

    Coffee to me is really weird hit or miss. Sometimes I feel nothing, sometimes I crash, sometimes it suppresses my appetite, and I feel energized.

    My favorite, is a good cup of freshly brewed local, with a bit of heavy whipping cream, and a dash of sugar. Yum.

    in reply to: Bras, Are They Bad For You? #7929

    Their are so many different kinds of bras. I personally don’t like under-wire, which gives you the most shape but it digs into your chest and is super uncomfortable. When I was real skinny I just didn’t wear bras and was able to get away with it, and it was nice. But their is a level of self appointed femininity that goes along with wearing a bra for a lot of women. All in all I don’t think they are any more unhealthy than most of the shit available today, which isn’t saying much but whatever. Besides, a good bra can do wonders for your silhouette.

    I think he would look good in between. I think I have overly high expectations of a man’s physique because I’m not really attracted to them very often. I think most straight women would pick his before picture though.
