I’m right there with you man.
My farts are because of the amount of grain-carbs I’m taking in. I know this because once a week I have a mega-low carb day where I only have 50g and from fruits/beef jerky (sugar). And I don’t have any gas.
My acne I think (I’m not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV) is because my hormones are alot more active becuase of my training…it comes in waves, on my face and shoulders.
Let me know if you have a pill to fix it! (both)[/quote]
the hormone excuse by dermatologists is just something to convince you to take the prescribed antibiotics/cleansers/topicals/whatever that they “recommend” which almost always cause more issues, are detrimental to your GI health in the long run and the symptoms (crappy skin health) come back as soon as you stop them
is it “hormones” ? technically it is because DHT from testosterone is causing inflammation everywhere including your skin (and scalp which can lead to hair loss), but this inflammatory response and how chronic it is is largely determined by your diet and lifestyle, i train hard and sweat very easily but since drastically changing my diet over a year ago have no more breakouts from internal issues
the only way i breakout anymore is from letting sweat sit on my face for several hours or rain/snow/precipitation (yes i know but rain/snow around here is acidic below pH 6)
it’s the connection between inflammation and lifestyle that dermatologists always want to deny
there is no pill, if you fix your lifestyle and diet and keep your GI tract happy then your skin will be clear as well
