    Has anyone else got spotty when they first started this diet?

    I noticed a couple of spots after the first couple of days, but put them down to TOTM but that was last week and I have a few more now! I don't usually get spots. I figured perhaps it's because my body no longer gets fed all the crap it's used to it's having a bit of a 'detox' effect. Hope they go soon though I'm beginning to feel like a teenager with acne!

    It's exactly what happened to me and I drew the same conclusion from it. I also got funny dry patches here and there, which went after I put a bit of Vaseline on them. I'm sure it's a kind of detoxing effect as you say.

    The skin you get after they've gone is better than the one you had before, however! That's the good bit. :) (Face skin doesn't seem to sag like body skin, thank god - I'm still trying to think of a way round that little problem!)

    I'm sure it will improve-I'm only just starting week 3! I did eat a load of crap before-it's hardly surprising!

    My skin improved - I used to be prone to "hormonal" breakouts, but no more! X

    I think its because your body is detoxing. Clearing out all the crap. I bet you will have lovely skin in a few weeks.
    Thats what happened to me. x
