Hey MontrealHomegrown, thanks so much for posting this!
I have had EC for four years now after swallowing these absurd "acne-pills",and your blog changed my life and my whole perception of the world.
I found out about it about six months ago, and it brought back light into my life! After changing my diet (and my overall hygiene) my lips got so uncomparably better that I've returned to university after three or four years of in/out from the school system! I just can't thank you enough for that.
There's one problem, though.
Although I can immediately see the beneficial effects of your diet (and overall way of life), I still have one big problem with regards to my diet...
And that is OVEREATING. I am HIGHLY conscious of the enormously detrimental effect of such a conduct, but I still can't help overeating at EVERY MEAL...It's kinda desperating when I know that it might be the single most important factor to the continuation of the peeling cycle, but I just can't help eating too much (even though I'm a skinny guy!).
So I would highly appreciate having your opinion on that! (maybe you have experienced something similar)
And I think this has to do with the fact that I went vegan a few months ago; maybe the ABRUPT change in my diet suddenly deprived my body from all the nutrients it had been used to, and this has lead me to feel a constant need for those nutrients.
This is the ONLY obstacle for me right now. I'm feeling so much healthier than before, but this one little thing considerably affects my condition.
For example when I went to Austria for a week last summer and I only ate very small amount of fresh food, combined with regular exercise, fresh air (changes from Paris!), sun and joyous feeling,my lips immediately got considerably better, but now with my overeating habit it seems like the peeling cycle has come back...(I even have a "OVEREATING WILL RUIN YOUR PROCESS" paper in my room, but with no results...)
Please give me your opinion on that..!!
Thank you so much
