I have heard from someone that lifting weights/building muscle mass up's your production of oil. I very frequently visit the acne boards, and have been taking this supplement (panteothenic acid/B5) for a while now, which is suppose to decrease your oil production, thus no more bs cystic acne. Well i weight train about 3 times a week, and jog 30mins on off days. My diet mainly consists of protein. (chicken, tuna, sometimes lunch meat, salads, tomatos, carrots, and water) Sometimes ill have some chips or junk foodish type things, but i watch portions, and not everyday thing.
Ive been at 180lbs for about 2 months now. But i am building quite a bit of mass, and still losing the lbs. SW was 235 of just fat. (didn't workout at all) I'm 5'8".
Well my main quest was about the acne and mass building increasing my oil or keeping it steady. Tests have said that 90% of people will succeed with b5. I gd f'ing hope im not in that 10%. My oil production hasn't changed much, so its a little frustrating, and just trying to find other reasons why, other than the 10% thing. :P
Sorry for rambling, but does weight training or increased amounts of protein have any effect on oil? Also, working out as much as i do (1hour weight training btw) how many calories i should be getting?
Thanks if you read all that. :P
