    HELP what oils are ok??

    I am really struggling with this part of the diet! I am getting ready to start and there seems to be so much confusing information.

    First, what oils are ok? I see coconut oil (mixed opinions I see on this) and mineral (baby oil) that are ok. I see people say they use petrolium than others say not to but what kind of oil can I research or what makes these different? is there a classification that determines what oils can be used?

    I looked in the store for all the types of products I see recommended such as (kiss my face, avalon, alba, natures gate etc etc.) all have some type of oils sunflower, avocado, jojoba, and tons more... What can I use or not??
    I have heard avoid parabens, lanolin, ughhh I give up its really really difficult

    Can anyone shed some light on what specifically I need to look for in ingredients?

    also essential oils?? not really oil I dont think are these ok to use?

    I appreciate the help I am really determined to follow this to the T and just want to know specifically what is protocol

    You can only use oil free products or mineral oil. That's all that is on protocol. I've used the Alba face stuff and really like it.

    I too use the Alba oil free green tea moisturizer for my body, and Neutrogena oil free moisture for my face (which I've used since JR high anyways!) and it gets the job done. I had stalls and stuff in the first half of my round and I believe it was because I wasn't being careful about what I put in my hair/on my skin. But Grammy, I've been seeing that vaseline isn't considered okay? Is this true? Because that's, like, my #1 beauty product!

    Can you tell me what is the exact Alba face product you use? I didn't see any Alba bottles at Whole Foods that specifically said "Oil free."

    I am new to this as well but have been big into the organics for awhile. And am very familiar w/ Whole Foods and all the goodies they have. But I am totally confused as well - almost every product I looked at has some sort of no no ingredient. Mostly some sort of oil - jojoba, sunflower, etc. (also, even t every jar of Alba I looked at has some sort of oil in it) Plus, do we also need to stay away from the "glycerins, parabins, etc" as well? I was reading my nivea and if glycerin isnt a no no, then its made w/ mineral oil. I'm not worried about face moisturizers because so many of them really are oil free. its the BODY lotion that I cant live w/o. Also, the only place I was able to find mineral oil (that wasnt baby oil -- i just can't do that scent) was at CVS .. but I wasn't sure if it was the right stuff, since its sold in jugs as a laxitive. Guidance woud be golden. much thanks!

    I have keratosis pilaris, a dry skin condition that causes bumps on the backs of my arms, so moisturizer is a must. I am prescribed a lotion that contains urea, as well as Cetaphil's moisture restoring bodywash and lotion. I know I shouldn't use these, so I am going to try the mineral oil or baby oil. I found some pure mineral oil online at Amazon, hope it works...

    They make a lavendar scented baby oil you should be able to find at Target or Walmart.

    I have KP too. I have never done any sort of protocol to manage or lessen it due to cost of the lotions on the market for it. I'm on round 3 of hhcg and the number of KP bumps on my arms is markedly less than before. Your post just made me realize that. Good luck with yours.

    What about organic virgin coconut oil? I have been using this as my moisturizer for my body, face and hair forever and can't imagine not using it! Like girlfriday, I like to use organic products but all of my other lotions have other natural oils in it.

    any help would be much appreciated!!

    Also is anyone else juicing on this protocol? I usually make a green shake every morning and was wondering if I can still make one? I know I would have to leave out my fish oil/ DHA/ omega 3's for the duration of vlcd but what about just having the shake with a bit of water (no more almond milk )

    All,
    I have Rosacia and my dermatologist has me using Elidel which has triglycerides in it. And I take an oral Minocycline...not quite sure if I shouldn't use either of these. I will use the Nutrogena sun protection 55 though...nice feel to it. Any thoughts about not using...

    I have Psoriasis -- been using Emu Oil which is probably a big NO NO but I have adversions to mineral oil as it makes my skin hurt more due to the P. Any other recommendations if Emu oil cannot be used? Thanks

    Hello. I know what you mean...the information 'out there' is so nice to have, yet some of it is not based on the science of the protocol. And it concerns me how people are blending in the wisdom of other diet info with the protocol. People think of it as just a low calorie diet and miss the beauty and the other benefits of this diet. I even hate calling the protocal a diet because it is more of a 'corrective therapy' for our bodies and how they burn fat as fuel. The protocol does so much more for us then just the weight loss...so here's my two cents worth

    I am a true believer in organic everything and also paraben free, petroleum free, etc. And most the people who recommend not using it are coming from that reasoning. However, the protocol is a short term amount of time and what we use as skin care is not forever. So I personally, do not stress over it. I just want to make sure I do EVERYTHING I can to make my time on the protocol as successful as ever and that means avoiding even healthy oils, such as shea butter, etc.

    So, when needed, I use Corn Huskers Lotion (which has been around for years and is oil free), mineral oil (baby oil), and have found several oil free face lotions put out by Nuetragena. If it does not say 'oil free' on the nutegena products I would avoid them.

    As far as coconut oil goes here's my take. I began as a complete 'purist' when I began the protocol and have lost 100plus pounds. I'm extremely careful and have listened to many opinions and the only ones I take to heart are from those of my natureopath who explain the science behind what they say. Coconut oil is what I use as a cooking oil (good for skin too) everyday of my life when NOT on the protocol. But while I am on the phase 2, 500 vlcd part of the diet I use MCT Oil. It is made from coconut oil and has been recommended by my naturopath. You can use up to 2 tablespoons a day. Coconut oil IS DIFFERENT because of the way our bodies use it. It is a medium chain oil which means it is used up as energy first.

    I lose an average of 5 pounds a week. Some weeks 3 pounds some weeks 7 pounds but, when I get to the end of my 40 days on the phase 2 and look back...it always averages 5 pounds.

    I hope this helps...good luck.
    Debbie
