Hello I ' ve learnt a lot of what causes my acne.
This is my final diet plan and I am posting it here because i keep cheatin with junk and then breaking out.
Morning- coarse oats with water 40g of oats. Low gi/ low carb
Snack- apple-l low gi not highly acidic food
Lunch: Brown long grain rice 65g , any veg except high iodine veg like spinach/cabbage/broccoli- in moderation. Meat only chicken- in moderation and no spice. Fish - only salmon- plentiful amounts. Higly alkaline veg: nightshade, any other veg lying around.
Afternoon: 1 rich tea biscuit- and pear or other low gi fruits.
Snacks: seeds - pumpkin not all the time cuz of lack of money available.
Beverages: Water - 8 glasses a day
I might actually not eat the one rich tea biscuit because then i get a sugar rush and end up eating ten
I cheated quite a lot this week which is why I am psoting this here . I ate a whole lot of white bread, instant oatmeal, 15 biscuits and am breaking out bad. Yeah I know I am an idiot.
For some people nightshade veg triggers acne so this might not work out for eeryone also citrus breaks some people out. But I do think a carb resticted diet for acne suffers is essentil
Foods I dont eat:
High GI/ high carb- Chick peas/ legumes- limited , sugary food, junk, white rice, white potatoes, carrots in moderation- they are good but in moderation due to high sugar. white bread or bread in general
Spicy- pustules for some reason. Look into Chinese/ Ayurvedic treatment of acne.
High iodine- cystic acne in places- some people say iodine results in a skin purge but no thank you. a purge that leaves me with cystic acne on my back, chest and face and cause pain at the slightest touch in those places is not for me.
DIARY- all of it eggs, chocolate , milk- worst acne ever: cysts deeep pustules/ so much pain. Added hormone/ lactose intolerance cause acne.
No caffeine- tea coffee- increases insulin reistance - cause blood sugar levels to rice- therefore increases likelihood of breaking out from carbs
Fruit and veg: iodine rich sources, high gi fruits e.g cantoloupe , melon, orange, also kiwi- trigger allergy of some kind in me.
Anyway wish me luck. I start tommorrow and i will update in 2 weeks.
