Yes, probably your testosterone levels is relatively high, which has both a water-retaining and sebum production-stimulating effect.
Now i understand why you are even more susceptible to protein intake than me.
I doubt that refraining from sex will help...
But if you have excess sex then maybe there could be a correlation. Will have to wait and see how my results turn out. Good so far.

When it really dawned on me that it seems my hormones are playing a part in my acne, i looked at antiandrogens. My acne didn't seem so bad after i saw the side effects of those drugs :shock: . Also had a look at natural antiandrogens but from the reports on the web they only had minimal effects.

PS but they were not on the wai diet, so.......

Did you set a specific waiting time? Cause if you're trying to find the balance between too much sex and not enough sex, I'd say you've waited long enough already ^.^;;

Though personally I'm in the "if your body screams LET'S DO IT, then it's time to do it" camp... this sounds weird to me, like not eating when you're hungry v(' ')v

13th Dec

No new spots

I haven't set a specific timeframe. I hope to do 70gs fish for 2-3 weeks (no sex). If my skin is still clear then move up to 75gs for 2-3 weeks (again with no sex), etc etc all the way to about 85gs (this is where i had major acne last time). This will tell me if it is the sex or the protein causing problems but...

Can i go 2 months without sex? I don't know.

The confounding variable of the experiment being: Will not having sex for a prolonged period of time in itself cause my hormones to fluctuate so much that it causes acne? I don't know.

One very interesting thing i was thinking about was: If, hypothetically, it is sex which is causing the major hormone fluctuations, then is it sex itself that is causing the fluctuations or is it ejaculation? Will have to learn tantric sex to test this.

dionysus: Have you considered trying to ditch the 100% Wai
for a few weeks, and partake in an probiotic cure, then go
back to the sample diet?

I suggest Vita Biosa (fermented herbal probiotic brew) in
combination with probiotic capsules that you empty into
a glass of water (to not have to eat the gelatine).
You can eat Wai-style when doing this, of course, it
is only the probiotics itself that are not part of this diet.

I mean, you have been on antibiotics for years and years, your
internal bacterial flora probably fucked up beyond recognition.
Just a thought...

Also, I really really really do not think sex leads to acne, or worsen
an already existing acne condition for that matter. Also I always
thought sex decreased testosterone rather than increasing it.
I mean, the football coach always told us not to masturbate in a few
days before a match, because it would lower our testo-level,
resulting in less aggressive play. Also I think some body builders
try to masturbate until the verge of coming, but not tipping
over, believing this would increase testosterone, while doing
it until climaxing would decrease hormone levels.

Fictor how will the probiotic cure help my acne?

Since you're all so curious. I've only had sex once in 24 days. Which is very low compared to what i'm used to. Actually quite proud

At present i am on 80gs of fish. I am still getting some tiny whiteheads but no red heads!. But i've also been really stressed out with exams in the last month so this has also to be taken into consideration.

Basically it seems that my hormones play some part in my acne. This includes arousal, stress, manual labour, etc. How much will take a while to fathom.

In most other diet approaches to acne, some of them actually
quite interesting, a lot of the same thoughts as the Wai-diet, probiotics
is an important part.

Optimal function of the inner organs are vital for having a well
functioning skin. So, it is recommended to use pro biotics to
ensure a good bacterial flora in the digestive system.

Some say it is not possible to add good bacteria from the
'outside' but I have heard many impressive stories, and
I find it hard to not believe in it.
