I have not consumed too much olive oil so far in my W30 (R1D13). Last night I made "The Best Chicken You Will..." (http://meljoulwan.com/2009/06/09/the-best-chicken-you-will-ever-eat-ever/) and made the Moroccan dipping sauce to go with it. Making the sauce was the most olive oil (1/3 cup) I have used in a recipe for my entire W30! The chicken was good and I served it cut up over zoodles and pour about 3 Tbsp of the sauce over everything. The thing is, about 2-2.5 hours later, I could feel the grease on my skin building up. I always noticed that I was extra greasy after eating italian food, but attributed it to the high carbohydrate pasta, and occasionally in the past I thought I got a bit oilier after consuming olive oil. Does anyone else experience this? I know olive oil is very healthy and I do not get any additional symptoms other than oiliness and any current pimples feeling a bit inflamed, but I'm wondering if olive oil is a no-go for me. It would be quite strange, because I love olives! I have been consuming ghee and coconut oil as my cooking fats for all of this W30, and before that, I did most cooking with butter or coconut oil. Would appreciate any insight!
I'm seeking advice about acne! I've struggled with it over the past two years, and it's been labeled "hormonal". I have eaten pretty clean over the past three years, but I noticed very little difference in my complexion when I "cheated" and ate something full of dairy, sugar, or grains. However, I have never been as rigid and consistent as the Whole30 program demands. This led me to give Whole30 a chance to solve my skin problems. I would love to clear my skin naturally, without the use of drugs and harsh chemicals. One of the main reasons that I chose to venture into the Whole30 Program was because I read the success stories and saw that several people saw tremendous results and achieved clearer complexions with Whole30. The results are amazing!! I'm on my eighth day of the Whole30 program and it's that time-of-month. I noticed new breakouts two days ago, and since then, new breakouts are coming in daily. I believe that I can attribute this to the time of the month, but the breakout seems to be worse than it has been in the past. Prior to that, I noticed no skin-clearing results from my first week of Whole30. Does anyone have experience with Whole30 and hormonal acne? If so, when did you start seeing results? Did it get worse before it got better? Please share any tips, suggestions, or comments. Thank you, Caroline
