I am thinking about cutting whey protein supplement out of my diet to see if it helps things-- is there anything out there that is low carb and not whey that is acne friendly?

whey protein for me hasn't caused acne prblems, i've been taking it for a while now, but lately it has been causing me stomach problems. It has given me upset stomach last 3 times i've taken it and i dont know why all of a sudden its doing this.

Take one can of tuna and half a liter of water or juice in the blender and run the machine.
The taste isn't the best the first couple of times, but after a while it's no problem. I usally do this one or two times a day and often put some oils or apple cider vinegar in it to!

Yeh its called meat. Screw the refined processed stuff, just eat more meat and eggs if you feel you need extra protein.

Yes, meat is a lot better option than processed proteins. It is a better source of protein and actually has a nutritional value.

Meat is not as good as whey protein when it comes to protein quality.

What you need to watch for is the dairy -- why dont you try a supplement that is dairy free? I use Nutribody and its working out great for me so far. It's all natural (brown rice and pea protein) no dairy, no additives, etc.
Take care,
