acne spots breakout sugar milk dairy fruit stress glycemic dates
After a chocolate binge on Thursday the 9th May and Friday the 10th i have completely removed all refined sugar from my diet + milk.
I had a very bad breakout 2/3days after the chocolate binge so from the ~13th but this only last for a few days or so and started cleaning up from about last weds/thurs[15/16].
Something to note is that i also started eating fruit from the 9th May onwards so this well could of been the culprit rather/plus the chocolate.
Although i compellingly removed all processed sugar/table sugar etc i have continued to satisfy my sweet tooth with fruit [which i f'ing love - can't believe i stopped eating it for so long]
I was eating say on average :
1 lemon
1 apple
+ some other fruit such as Sharron fruit, grapes, banana, dates, raisins, dates.
Approximately around last thursday [16th] i also started to eat porridge made with water and a few dates [maybe 3-5]. But on Friday i probably ate more like 6-8 dates and on Saturday maybe the same but also a handful of raisins.
On Sunday i noticed a spot on the side of my head and on Monday i had a bad breakout on my face with nasty pre spot pain below and above mouth and above tach near nose. These are the kind of red painful spots i fucking hate the most, often they never come to a head and may not even be as bad aesthetically as large white heads etc but i fuckign hate the sensation of feeling them every-time i move my face etc and i hate anyone touching my face [apart from even looking that is].
SO it would seem that maybe the sugar from the dates and raisins could of sent me overboard, so to speak. That is if sugar is a factor in the first place.
Other possible causation factors include; i had a particular stressful day on Saturday, i had very little sleep on Thursday night. I have been going to bed too late again. I have been eating more fat, saturated fat in particular. I have been eating bread again.
Possible causative factors
Fruit - sugar and or fructose - liver - whatever 
Dates, raisins [too much sugar total - glycemic - insulin etc bollocks]
Saturated fat.
Lack of sleep.
Late sleep - circadian cycle etc.
For now i will remove all sweet tasting food. I don't want to go low carb again because of my previous experiences with ketogenic diets. 
Basically seeing as i'm riddled now anyway i am depriving myself of most of life's pleasures. How fuckign wonderful.
