I am getting more and more white heads does anyone know if there is a connection between kiwi or tomato on acne. I eat half a tomato a day and a whole kiwi for breakfast.

The kiwi does cause a slight tingling sensation - is this is a sign of a possible allergy. Tomato, is a nightshade and so are potatoes which give me acne however the potato related acne could be due to the potatoes high gi.

Does anyone else experience breakouts from these two?

Diet Plan

Dietplan

Breakfast -Fruit in the morning and cup of hot water - low GI fruit- e.g Kiwi which has three times the amount of vitamin c in one orange -Vitamin c has been shown to raise progesterone levels in females which is needed to reduce the androgen testosterone

Lunch -mixed veg with barley/ 30g of rice -veg includes: cabbage, tomato- improve taste as well, carrots, pepper, beetroot, onions- 10g only - because i hate them and they make me cry . Also lentils to improve taste , it has a low gi as well. Can have chicken as well -good source of zinc

OR

Soup- tomato/ chicken/ any soup with added veg

NO POTATOES - due to high gi

Snacks: Pumpkin seeds- high in zinc aim for at least 30g a day

Tea- another fruit - with a low gi e.g plum or pear

Supplements

I dont do tablets but if this doesnt work out i might get some borage oil for acne control

Vitamin a - at least 2and a 1/2 carrots

Vitamin c- kiwi, oranges bell peppers if my parents buy some- yellow bell peppers - have the highest amount of vitamin c

Kiwi - has a low gi and three times the amount of vitamin c in one orange -Vitamin c has been shown to raise progesterone levels in females which is needed to reduce the androgen testosterone

Zinc- pumpkin seeds- really good veg source of zinc, chicken, salmon- I forgot to include that i dont eat any meat except chicken.

Beef is the meat that has the highest amount of zinc followed by lamb and pork- but i dont eat beef because i am hindu and pork just tastes really squidgy and disgusting so i dont eat that either. Lamb is a dont even go there for my chloesterol level obsessed dad- but man does it taste amazing.

Foods that i dont eat- HIGH GI, sugary foods, DIARY- so eggs, chocolate included, Amond milk is a good substitute- unsweetened one, also i avoid processed and fried, oily foods
