At first glance, the Ninja Master Prep looks like an ordinary food processor. It has the usual up-down buttons for pulse, run and chop/sauté. It even has three different settings so you can adjust the shape of the food you’re processing. But there’s more to the Ninja Master Prep than meets the eye.
For those of us following a ketogenic diet , the Ninja Master Prep might just be the most useful kitchen gadget we own. It can make preparing a full meal in seconds, while leaving you with much more time to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of your own kitchen. I found the Ninja Master Prep to be a terrific helper in the kitchen, because it meant I could spend less time waiting for the non-stop chopping and dicing that are otherwise required to prepare a meal. Also, it meant that I could spend less time worrying about my kitchen counter looking like a war zone.
Before and after
Can severe acne be treated with dietary changes? This is still a controversial issue, but many people have experience with it and studies prove that it can work.
I received a letter from Mieke, and this is her story, translated from Swedish:
Here’s another success story I’d like to share with anyone who has acne problems. I have other success stories in other categories that I would be happy to share with you in the future if you are interested in them.
I have had severe acne problems since I was a teenager. I suffer greatly from acne, I might add. As with many others, my problems began in a rather trivial way. Buttons here and there. Mostly in the face, but was that so strange? But it spread like wildfire, and my cheeks and neck looked like the picture on the left. In other words, a crater. But it was anything but hell.
The acne continued to spread and I have never been more miserable than I was at that time. The pimples turned into large abscesses and, among other things, I could no longer lean against the back of a chair. Even stroking her shoulders or back was incredibly painful. The blood made my bedding look like a crime scene for a murder investigation. Many nights I had trouble falling asleep from the pain.
I ended up doing what many others do. I turned to health care and got a lot of advice, but none of it helped. I have tried ointments, aloe vera products, homeopathic remedies and oils. Nothing produced significant results, and eventually I got tired of it, thinking that hopefully with time it would pass. Not so…
After years of recurring acne, I had enough at age 21 and went to the doctor for the last time. I wanted to finish it. I should add that I went to the doctor not only for the acne, but also for, among other things, undiagnosed irritable bowel syndrome and fatigue.
I was advised to try antibiotics, and that’s what I was prescribed. I went to the pharmacy to get my prescription filled and felt a little worried because on the same day I read about patients who used antibiotics for their acne and didn’t get better, and many of them had worse acne due to various side effects of the medication. So I thought this was my last resort.
I went home, read the package insert and died inside when I read that the drug should not be taken with dairy products. Being a milk addict, I kept the medicine in a cupboard where it remained untouched for over a year.
Why? Well, uh…
Around the same time I heard from my partner that she had heard about the LCHF program, watched some of its lectures on YouTube, and read testimonials from people with irritable bowel syndrome. I was immediately interested because I felt like I had hit rock bottom and I wanted to give it a shot. As someone who is gluten intolerant and has been interested in diets since childhood, I saw no problems with this diet.
Based on my research and my past and present successes, I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe I’m just sugar tired. I always noticed that every time I ate more sugar (like candy), my acne got worse.
Believe it or not, that’s exactly what happened …..
May 2013 – 22 years old:
After just a few days on a strict LCHF diet, my IBS became unnoticeable. After about a month, my recurring acne was gone and my skin has never looked better. My daytime fatigue has disappeared and my cravings have been reduced thanks to this high-energy diet. I just had a sugar intolerance.
Today I must thank not only my partner, but also others, including Jonas Bergqvist, who has also changed my outlook on nutrition and exercise.
Thanks for everything and I hope my story will inspire many other severe acne sufferers to try this natural product.
– Real food…
(For those interested, I’m on Instagram: Mickemickz).
Improvement in acne is a common side effect of a low-carb diet. There are also several studies that show it has a positive effect on many people.
Also watch out for milk proteins (also insulinogenic). Perhaps the best diet for acne is the low-carb Paleo diet.
