You're probably not eating enough carbs when you're working out for your level of activity.  Try to add in maybe a cup or two of rice, or a yam/sweet potato.

The 3 meals/day thing is just society's norm.  Eat when you feel hungry instead.  The eat every 3 hours idea to "keep your energy" up is a disaster as it keeps your insulin up most of the day, and can lead to insulin resistance. You're right,... (more)

for me Starch gives me Skin Issues (all Grains), makes me tired, i gain more fat. fruit, fruit juice and cane sugar dont do that. its probably not bad to add sugar, if you are not doing so well on a ketogenic diet or a diet with starch.

Very likely that bacteria will grow.  If sea water helps your skin, it's likely you're missing some minerals such as magnesium.  You can try "magnesium oil" or epsom salt baths and the like as well as a good magnesium supplement, for example.
