Kevin, it has been confirmed by dermatologists that the only drinkable/eatable thing that has been linked to acne is certain types of milk and a few dairy products. Which I already don't drink/eat. So a change in diet makes no difference for me. In fact, you would know that if you really did take accutane because the doctor tells you all the details- one of which is that you don't need to stay away from most foods. They say you should eat more fish though, which I've started doing.

I'm 23 days in and it's messing me up emotionally/physically/ect. The diagrams are hilarious. I'm pushing through.

Normally people take 40-80 mgs a day, and it progresses throughout the treatment. I'm taking 100 mgs day 1 through day 60. So yea, it's hell.

But before we get in another huge argument, I'm jumping out. I was just recommending nobody take it. It's hell.

Matt you for sure have one of the cleanest SR's on VS...wheels could be a shade lighter but that's just me being picky lolol

Thanks Spencer. It's all about the stance and winglets!!! Haaha.

And since you mentioned wheels, I dropped of my other set of Pegs at the Powder coaters this afternoon.

The new ones are going to be "Black Bronze". If they turn out like the little demo card, they should look like a flat darker charcoal and have a hint of bronze when the sun hit's them. :D

I was just super dehydrated. Drank tons of water and used lotion on my hands since they dried out really bad

He works out of his house but I had a single done as a test and it turned out well so I dropped off the other 4. Should be done Friday.

My brother and the guys at my local Discount Tire both recommend them. So far I've only had them PC my spare Peg to match my black set and it turned out really good.

Cost me $80 for the single 18" wheel. I can't remember what the charge was for 4 wheels.

Here's a look with the bigger stickers Matt.

Thanks, Danny! Hopping on Ebay right now.

IDK Danny. From what I saw on the site, those pictures don't do them justice, they're potentially losing sales due to the POS pics

Thanks and Nope, they're going on the S60R. I'll have them back on the car this evening. I'll post a pic if it's still light enough out when all is done.

NP and kewl Matt! Saw the pic with the callipers on, very clean! Different in a good way!

diet does effect it. its not just dairy but also foods high on the glycemic index (white bread).

The more you know (song)

Okay well my doctor who put me on accutane told me I should cut back on dairy but other than that, there's nothing to avoid.

I'm more curious that you're recommending people not take it, but you're still putting them down? you must feel the negatives outweigh the acne?
