Acne and skin blemishes have been known to occur from unmetabolized estrones related to a fatty & sugary diet or chemicals in the environment. Fats and sugars affect hormonal balance related to men or women who have a genetic tendency towards higher levels of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) and a metabolite of DHT. Clean skin starts from within the body. The skin is a large excretion organ, improve your diet to whole natural foods, brown rice, tubers, beans, vegetables, free of oils (use only good sources of fats in nuts, seeds or avocado). Take Estroblock to clear the excess metabolites and follow a clean diet for at least 6 to 8 weeks to see a significant improvement in your skin.

Oils like olive oil, have 100% fat. A tablespoon of olive oil is over 120 calories, with 13.5 grams of fat. There is no fiber, so the fat zooms into the lacteals and blood stream, causing massive clumping of red blood cells and slowing of the lymphatic system. Most of it ending up undigested going directly into the fat storage cells (adipose) hips, thighs, stomach, butt.
As for the nuts, if your dieting to reduce weight, limiting the the amount of nuts you consume. Generally, they are high in calorie. Nuts do provide great health benefits so I'm not suggesting to eliminate them all together from your diet. Just practice mindful portion control.
A recent heart study showed a nice reduction in cholesterol and death rate for heart disease eating walnuts, with its essential fatty acids. For example, 1/4 cup of walnuts, raw (if soaked in water are richer in enzymes & nutrients) have 2 grams of fiber and 200 calories.
As for avocados...One medium Avocado has 276 calories, with 4.2 grams of fiber. It contains 27.6 grams of fat “healthy fat” essential fatty acids, with 1.4 grams of protein and 1.4 grams of carbohydrate, ZERO cholesterol and other nutrient benefits (vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, live enzymes).
The fat is slower to be absorbed because avocados have fiber. We rarely see much of an increase in triglycerides (fat in the blood), unless one consumes as many as 3 or 5 avocados a day.
Don't laugh !!! I had a health food store worker came in to my office complaining of fatigue. When we examined his blood, he had a triglyceride level of over 800 (ideal after fasting under 100, after eating under 200). You could actually see the sludging of blood in capillaries under a high powered microscope. He cut back to one avocado a day, with a balance, of beans, fruits, vegetables, tubers, yams. His fatigue disappeared. His triglycerides dropped to normal (under 140 after eating).
Then there is the famous forgotten experiment by Dr. Dennis Burkitt. He had several test subjects eat at least 10 large potatoes a day, with all individuals losing weight, because there was at most 1,900 calories, with less than 10 grams of fat, under 4% of calories (10 × 9 cal per gram=90 divided by 1900 calories) of which not all calories are usable, since fiber is completely non-digestible!
In contrast a medium potato has 160 calories, less than .2 mg of fat, protein 4.3 grams, complex carbohydrates 37 grams (complex means it is a combination of complex sugars than require digestion first by saliva, then in the intestines, releasing 2 calories per minute at the rate the body and brain needs for optimum health. The fiber content is 4.3 grams. We need a total of 30 to 60 grams of fiber a day for proper bowel function.
Cheese, one slice, is 9 grams of fat, cholesterol 29 mg, 113 calories. Okay - who only eats one slice of cheese? ??? With the amount of cheese used on pizza, its like asking for a heart attack to include it in your diet.
I love nutritional questions... Please keep asking them either on my Facebook page or on this website.
