For the past 3 weeks I've been doing low carb (so lots of meat, fat, vegetables, etc...) and I must say this kept my rosacea pretty well under control.
After those 3 weeks I really got cravings for something tastier than advocados and bacon and I felt my need to binge on carbs increase every day. So last weekend I was at a party where I ate some cookies and bread, and the next day I thought "screw it" and I started eating sugary food and chocolate (lots of it). Needless to say, the past 2 days I've been bright red again (and flushing like hell). Currently I'm just eating fruit and some toast (oatmeal as breakfast) but I'm struggeling to decide which way I want to go.
-Weight loss (not really necessary but ok)
-More concentrated on tasks
-Leaner face, which diminished redness
-You constantly have to watch what you eat
-Not many choice to eat (I don't eat dairy)
-On restaurant etc...you get the point
-Red meat might be inflammatory? Or the saturated fats?
-After a while the binge behavior comes into play
-You don't have to watch what you eat (sort of)
-You don't have to constantly explain to people that you don't eat carbs
-Flushing, redness (certainly now, the first days after quitting low-carb)
-More jittery, less concentrated on tasks
-Face is puffier, which might increase redness
So please give me the right answer, what YOU think is the best diet for controlling rosacea? And is fruit part of it? (because I have the impression they make me flush)
