The recommendation is to drink three 8-ounce glass of vitality vinegar tonic a day.  You can sip it throughout the day if you like, or you can drink it before meals.  You will benefit from it either way, as it is a very alkaline-forming drink.

I have never heard of acv triggering rosacea.  In fact I have heard the opposite.  ACV has been used as a treatment for rosacea.  As apple cider vinegar is known to improve and balance the PH of the body to be more alkalline, and it improves blood circulation, it is believed that it may help with rosacea.

Sometimes when a person begins to improve their diet, the body releases toxins and you start to feel worse before you feel better.  I'm not saying that is what's happening with you, but it is something you should know about.  There's a great article by Dr. Stanley Bass called "Symptoms to Expect When You Improve Your Diet" that I think you should read.  In it he talks about something he calls "retracing", where the body begins to get rid of toxins and may break out in rashes.  This is just a phase and should not be taken as a bad reaction to good food!

You can read the article here: http://www.drbass.com/symptoms.html

Best,
Dee

Omega 6 from Borage oil is very healthy.  What you need to stay away from are all the processed oils that show up in foods or that are used as cooking oils, such as soybean oil, cottonseed oil, vegetable oil, corn oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, and safflower oil.  Those are the most harmful omega 6 oils and people eat way too much of them in processed forms.

The omega-6 oils from borage oil and evening primrose oil are cold pressed and encapsulated in gel caps to keep them from going rancid.  They are never heated.

Our bodies do need omega-6, but only small amounts, and they need to be in the right balance to the omega-3's in our diet.

Taking a supplement that has the right balance of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 can help you get the right amount of these oils and not overdo it, as long as you keep the omega-6's out of your other foods.

Page 260 says "I recommend mixing unsweetened cocoa powder into smoothies that do not contain cow milk (nut milks and rice milk are fine)."

Almond milk is a nut milk, so it is fine to mix with cacao.

You can stay on Skinny Beginnings for 8 weeks or until you reach your goal.  If you've hit a plateau, you probably need more exercise.

I haave a question about pasta. My husband, who for some unknown reason has always been slim, even though he eats things like poptart, white rice, white bread, etc., is really balking regarding my no-processed diet. Im finding it difficult to make foods that he enjoys, particularly angelhair pasta. I found some pasta that the box called quinoa, made it, looked harder at the box and read "made with rice flourand quinoa flour". Wondering if rice flour could be a problem?

There are two kinds of rice flour: white rice flour and brown rice flour.  Brown rice flour is whole grain, white rice flour is refined.

If the ingredient list just says "rice flour", then it is white rice flour.  If the flour is made from brown rice it will say "brown rice flour."

Why don't you just try a brown rice pasta, instead of the quinoa?  It is very similar to regular pasta in taste and texture, so I think hubby will like it better than the quinoa pasta.

My favorite brand is Tinkyada Pasta Joy.  They make a whole line of brown rice pasta in many different shapes and sizes.
