    :confused: I have spots!

    Hi there will have been on CD 100% for 4 weeks on 5th June. Im 42 years old and normally have quite greasy skin with the odd pimple at TOM.

    My skin seems really dehydrated and I have loads of spots which will not budge.

    Im drinking about 6-7 pints of water a day - any advice please?

    Also Im off on holiday tomorrow for a week all inclusive - I wont be following CD for the week but have a weigh in booked for the day after I come back. I have read that its best to stick to an atkins type of diet to stay in ketosis is this correct? Thanks for any advice. :wave_cry:

    Not sure about the diet, but thought I could post about the spots... Have you tried giving yourself a regular exfoliation/mask? Sounds like you've got blocked pores due to your skin changing - exfoliate and then put a nice mask on your face, hopefully it will calm your skin down.

    Could you follow the 810 plan while on holiday? Take along shakes for 2 meals a day and then have a high protein dinner...

    Have a lovely time away :)

    This is a long shot, but it might be a reaction to the soy in CD products! It happens to me too: too much soy and I get an itchy face and too-too much of it gives me spots! I had to stop drinking soy-milk, which I love.
    Just a thought...

    Hey hun... know how you feel. Ive started getting spots too...and hundreds of them. Although my skin looks fine, not dehydrated or anythin but the spots are terrible. Im drinkin approx 3ltrs a day and have started using clerasil ultra wash twice a day which is helping. I kinda not trying to focus on it too much as i feel the more i worry the more i see them. lol. x
