I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
Congrats on 6 months raw and your weight loss. I wish I had advice on acne but I have no clue why that would happen unless it's your body detoxing...
Congratulations on your 6 months!!.
I agree that it may be detox. My skin has reacted to raw. Not necessarily in the form of acne but some small breakouts like I haven't had since I was a teenager (don't want to say how may decades ago that was!!.
And sometimes oiliness (which I guess I shouldn't complain about)..
Hang in there! Just like the acne came it will probably go away...
Make sure your getting plenty of natural raw Medifast food fiber. The body's preferred way of getting rid of toxins is through fiber but if that route isn't available then it will go another way. Congrats on 6 months...
What is your intake of papaya, mango and pineapple? These are very eliminating foods so if you've increased your consumption of any of those or combined them all together, maybe it's that..
Thank you all! Hopefully I will figure out the zit thing soon!..
I know people get tired of hearing this...but it's probably detox in one form or another. Your body sounds like mine in that, it uses my skin (face) to expel toxins in the way of acne. Not too get to personal or graphic, but how are your eliminations? As it was mentioned, get plenty of raw fiber, drink water to help flush out...maybe even consider doing some bowel cleansing as well to help move things along..
As for the sore breasts and the PMS symptoms...could be some hormonal balancing taking place and you're retracing some things of the past as your body heals/cleanses on a deeper level..
Have you considered fasting or juice feasting for a while?..
I have been eliminating well enough, in fact more than I was before. I know I still need more water though. I have definitely considered juice feasting. I have kind of been putting it off because I am enjoying all of this Medifast food so darn much! I know I need to just do it!..
I find that evening primrose oil supplements works wonders for pre PMS moodiness. I take 1300mg three times a day from after ovulation until my period starts. I had a good friend call them her anti witch pills...
Recently, I noticed that when I eat: greens, nori, water and fresh fruit I have 0 zits and usually I have persistent acne over my face. I noticed my skin clearing up especially when I started eating the fresh fruits and veggies...
Wow happy anniversary!.
I'm on month 2 with many falls. But it's not hopeless at all- it made me..hmm stronger in some way.
Learned my lessons..
