There are many men and women who are looking at ways of getting rid of acne. Most people, who are not aware of the causes and treatment of this problem, rely on friends for information on acne. Today, there are many companies that claim to have solution for your problem. However, most treatments that are available in the market don’t work or work only for milder cases.

Apart from drugs and creams, there are several light therapies and laser treatments that are used to deal with the problem of acne. At times, a problem in the treatment can leave a scar on your face. Therefore, it is important that you check out the benefits and side-effects of the treatment before selecting a treatment.

Many studies have been conducted to find out ways to reduce the occurrence of acne. A recent study has shown that having a low carbohydrate diet not only helps you lose weight but also helps in erasing your acne. Some people who suffer from acne may also have high insulin and consuming low carbohydrate food can help in controlling acne by lowering the insulin levels in the body. People must also avoid eating dairy products as it not only increases weight but also promotes acne. However, no evidence has been found that links chocolates to acne. Experts are of the view that main cause of acne is sugar and dairy products and not cocoa.

If cutting down on your sugar intake does not help, it is best that you consult a skin doctor as untreated acne may lead to scars.

Is The 17 Day Diet plan Effective?


July 22, 2011


The 17 Day Diet is one of the hottest selling fitness books this season. Most people who want to have a fit body must have heard about this book or even read it. The author of the book “The 17 Day Diet” is Moreno who wanted people to follow a fitness program that will prevent them from gaining weight and the results achieved will last for a lifetime.

There are many people who have benefited from this diet program. For instance, Rachel Wilcox who recently appeared on Good Morning America claimed that she had lost more than 36 pounds by following this program. Rachel is not the only person who is not benefited from the program. Today, there are thousands of Americans who have benefited by following this program.

However, there are many people who believe that this plan is as effective as claimed by people. They claim that there is no scientific evidence which proves that people lose weight because they follow this treatment. They believe that people can follow any other program to reduce their calorie intake and they don’t have to use this plan to lose weight. People who want to lose weight must first find out the reason behind their weight gain before following any diet plan. People, who follow this diet plan without understanding the reason behind their weight gain, may not lose weight.

People who follow this diet plan will have to change their nutrition intake every 17 days. This diet plan is easy to follow as you have sugar but must not eat processed or fried food. Moreno has divided his plan into 4 cycles of 17 days each. The first cycle is designed to reduce weight and to remove the excess fat from your body. The second cycle will reset the metabolism of your body and will decide on the calories that you must have. The third cycle will help in changing your eating habits and will suggest the food that you must avoid eating. The fourth cycle is the combination of the 3 previous cycles which allows you to eat the food you like on weekends. Even though this fitness plan has been designed for long-term benefit, most nutritionists believe that this program will only benefit people who are looking for short-term weight loss program.
