There is extensive research in the book that support there claims as to what causes acne.

The Paleo Diet also by Dr Cordain does a much better job of showing how simple and enjoyable the diet and recipes can be, his website also provides similar resources.

The great thing about that is once you know how something works, it becomes much easier to think about how everything you do affects that process.

This book was very expensive considering how much I paid for his "Paleo Diet" book. It mentions all the key points about having a healthy eating regimen as in his Paleo Diet book. I thought I would gain a lot more insight to why our skin develops acne. It does mention several explanations and studies. However, much of what is in this book is mentioned in his Paleo Diet book and Paleo Diet for Athletes book already. There were many testimonals from people with bad skin and how they improved after following a strict diet. I could have saved my money by not buying the book and just followed his eating regimen and avoiding processed foods in his original Paleo diet book. So if you have read his other diet books, just stick to that. It is pretty much the same thing.

I have eaten pretty well since I was a teenager, but when my daughter began to develop acne, we discovered this book which cut to the chase even beyond eating organically. She had already not eaten sugar for about a year when we bought the book, but it was very informative for her and so very inspiring. I have also been eating the diet pretty closely and feel great too.

As was mentioned in other reviews, it was disappointing not to have more menu suggestions and the website only had a very few offerings of recipes. I consulted the Paleo Diet book and although it was a little helpful, there was contradicting information to the Acne book (about sweet potatoes and nuts, for instance) so we weren't sure what to do in those cases. Additionally, Dr. Cordain suggests adding one food group back in at a time each month, but instead of a specific food given as an example, he gives pizza as the example which has flour and cheese together....??? two very likely candidates to cause acne.

I was also surprised that Dr. Cordain didn't even give mention to the fact that there might be a link between the problems people are experiencing with grains and the fact that we are not soaking the grains ahead of time, which breaks down phytates (the part of grains that make them quite indigestible). Soaking grains is an ancient practice as well and might very well help many people have a plant-based source of protein that there bodies can then assimilate.

The amount of protein in ratio to veggies and fruits has been a big question for me about this diet. My daughter seems to want to eat a lot of meat (mostly chicken) and fruit. And she does always seem hungry, constantly foraging.

I have been suffering from acne for almost 20 years, mild to moderate, but very annoying case. I can honestly say I have been eating healthy all my life, but appears that wasn't enough. From personal experience I knew there was a great connection between food and acne. Finally there is scientific evidence and proof of that! The book is not a quick fix diet, but rather a life style, a long term goal of achieving clear skin and staying healthy for life! Prior to reading this book I have followed Dr. N. V. Perricone's anti-inflammatory diet plan for about 2 years. It kept my acne somewhat under control, but I still had occasional flare-ups. Dr. Cordain's diet plan is more restrictive, but not too hard to follow up if you already eat reasonably healthy (meaning whole foods). The book has a lot of scientific explanations, but at the end there is a simple list of foods to avoid, which most of health-conscious people don't eat anyway. There is a long list of food to eat and trust me, you will not be starving. You can eat reasonable amounts of food and loose weight if you are overweight and then maintain it for rest of your life. Think lifelong goal of healthy skin and the whole body rather than quick fix for a week or so. I can honestly say nothing works like a miracle. I follow Dr. Cordain's diet plan and it is a slow but steady progress. I almost don't get any new breakouts, skin looks brighter and smoother after about 2 months. This book is well worth to spend money for. Do good for your skin and whole body!

This book was recommended to me by a friend who has found it useful. Even though my skin problem is not severe, merely annoying, I decided to try it out. The principles explained in this book goes a long way towards enhancing general allover quality of life and healthy living. I think it should be used as a guide to a lifestyle change, and not just a diet. I have started losing weight, I feel great, and my skin tone and texture has greatly improved. I strongly recommend this book.

The Dietary Cure for Acne is the answer I've been looking for! After taking my daughters to the dermatologist for years, and spending thousands of dollars (I'm not kidding you...between the doctor's costs and the prescriptions and the years going it has added up)I have finally found someone who makes sense--Dr. Loren Cordain. The first thing my dermatologist said to me 5 years ago when I started with her was: Diet has nothing to do with acne. I bought into her "theory" and subjected my girls to countless oral and topical medications, including Accutane. Their acne would clear up for a little while and then return. We were all so frustrated! When after a recent visit to the dermatologist she wanted to prescribe Accutane AGAIN, I finally put my foot down and said NO! No more oral medications. I went online and did some research about the connection between foods and acne and that's when I came upon this book. It is written simply and is easily understood. I have to be honest though, trying to keep teenage girls on the strict diet for 30 days is very hard! One daughter is a complete dairy fanatic and the other a junk food eater. But by sticking to the diet we're starting to see results after just 2 weeks. And since they are seeing the results it makes them want to try even harder to stick with the diet. AND, it's good healthy foods so how can you go wrong?
