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!

If there were a manual that describes the entire process of the formation acne, this is it. Amazingly, as complex as it is, this book breaks it down into a form that is easily understood and yet detailed enough that you feel like you really know what is going on. 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. Everything he tells you in this book is backed by scientific research too, which instilled even more confidence in me as to what I was reading is truth.

The other wonderful thing about this book is that no matter who you are, the diet itself can be applied. If you suffer acne, but are an athlete, or you are seriously wishing to lose some weight, this is a diet that will meet your goals in those areas as well as clear up your acne.

My only beef about this book is that although it really explains the process of acne formation well with scientifically backed research and tells how to alter your diet more specifically to clear up acne, in order to truly understand the diet aspect of it "The Paleo Diet" by Loren Cordain is pretty much a necessary addition to this book, which itself is a good read. Fortunately for me I already owned "The Paleo Diet" and had been utilizing it for a couple months already when I got this book which helped me tweak and understand the process more fully.

That is the only reason I give it 4 stars as opposed to 5, because I know if I needed two books for the whole answer and only had one that had touted to give me everything, I would be slightly peeved.
