Weight Gain Update.

Okay, so maybe this isn't necessarily a weight gain update, since I have stayed the same weight since the last time I posted. But I wanted to venture into this topic more.

You know how society is always saying you must eat more calories to gain weight? Well, I'm starting to believe it's all a bunch of bullshit. A calorie is a calorie, is not just a freaking calorie. There are good calories and with processed foods there are dead calories. Which means both will affect your body quite differently.

And after eating high calorie meals every single day for a few weeks and feeling like complete utter shit, I gave up. I mean if it's not making me gain even a pound now, how would it make me gain weight later? And I've read many cases like mine, but where they've even taken excess calories like up to 3thousand.

I mean, hell, these past few days I've eaten considerably way less than I used to and have still kept my weight. Why would I rather eat tons and tons of food and feel like crap when I can keep my weight by eating less?

So it got me thinking, how do the SAD cause people to gain weight? And like all of you remember correctly, junk food has always been the number one culprit. And what is junk food comprised of? Carbs. Tons and tons of carbs.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not gonna shove my face full of processed, nutrient depleted foods. But it got me thinking, maybe I'm not getting enough carbs. And just like not all calories are the same, not all carbs are the same. I mean eating processed white sugar can lead to diabetes; however, the natural sugar cannot/will not do the same thing to your body. Processed sugars are toxic; natural sugars are not. That's why people die from eating junk food rather than eating tons of fruit.

And if I look back on my diet, I really didn't ever get hardly any carbs, well just not enough.

And if you search around the web, when you eat carbs, it causes insulin to be released to control blood sugar levels and store them as fat. Proteins do the exact opposite.

I'm not 100% sure that I'm correct but I'm willing to try. I mean, if that's all I have to do is just eat some more fruit and hummus, then I'm fine with that!

What really irks me is how little to no information there is on true health and gaining weight. Like I have seriously searched again and again to come up with nothing more than statements.

So I guess just like I tried eating more calories, I'm going to have to test the waters out on this one too.

I will give you updates if I come up with anything interesting.

Any comments are appreciated!

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
