  1. Hey everyone, I haven't had a new pimple in a few days (a record for me, seriously) and I wanted to share what foods I've been eating.I cut out dairy and most sugar a few months ago. About I week ago I had some asparagus and broke out like crazy. Since then I've cut out all asparagus, broccoli, and other iodine heavy foods including all fish (I'm taking a fish oil supplement that's only fish oil, gelatin, and water). The key thing to remember imo is that not all vegetables and fruits are created equal. The only vegetables I've been eating are mini cucumbers, celery, and red bell peppers. They are all super low gi (under 10), and I found them all organic. In terms of fruits, these are notoriously high gi, but I've been eating plums and cherries, both organic and low gi. Nuts seem to give me trouble, but I've been eating seeds like a madman. I make this desert-ish mix with these ingredients: sprouted pumpkin seeds, sprouted watermelon seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seed powder, steamed quinoa, avocado oil, coconut oil, vanilla extract, a touch of 100% cocoa powder, a little cinnamon, and just a drizzle of raw agave. In terms of meats, I don't know why but chicken and turkey always seem to give me new pimples so I avoid them, as well as eggs. I've been eating grass fed ground beef and also Applegate naturals good morning bacon. The "good morning bacon" is especially awesome because it's made with pig shoulder so it has less fat. The ingredients are pretty clean too although I usually "wash the bacon" under running water to get off any sugar or extra salt. I usually eat it with a side of quinoa, my go-to carb. Although this is borderline high for me on the gi scale (around 50!) it's something I've been eating for years and doesn't seem to give me any problems unless I eat a LOT of it all at one time. Anyway, these foods have been working for me. I realize it's a super strict diet and I'm open to suggestions of other foods to add in. Now that I have a baseline diet of foods that won't break me out I can to controlled experiments and really see what foods contribute to my acne.
