I was just wondering, has anybody noticed an increase in acne with eating rice? The last few days I've been eating rice and it seems like I am getting a few more spots than what is normal.
Personal Regimen:

Morning and Night:

- Purpose Gentle Cleanser,
- followed by Neutrogena Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin.

Every other day:
- Shampoo/cleanse face with Ketoconazole shampoo, 2%
- followed by Neutrogena Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin.

Supplements:

- Multi Vitamin 1-2 times daily.
- Up to 6 capsules of Flaxseed Oil/Fish Oil daily.
- Probiotic capsules, usually once a day.

I think that rice is okay, but only needs to be eaten in moderate amounts. I believe that white rice is just as healthy as brown rice; but either way, rice is not that nutrient-dense, and should complement a meal, not form a meal, if that makes sense.

I went to P.F. Changs recently, and with my entree they gave me a LOT of rice (probably 2.5 cup's worth). That's just excessive, and has too many calories for too little nutrients. But would I have a problem with, say: a rice ball, some meat, a small cup of soup, a small salad, and veggies? Not at all.
Clear for 8+ months now through striving for optimal fitness levels, stress levels, sleep, nutrient density in my body, and an overall holistic lifestyle approach.

Diet (I stick to this as much as I can): eggs; meat; poultry; wild-caught seafood; vegetables; fat sources from coconut oil, olive oil, and butter; fruit as I crave it; tea; and purified water. I buy organic and/or pastured foods as I reasonably can, but I think that it's the type of foods you eat, and not the quality of food (within reason, of course) that most determines how healthy you will be.

I highly recommend green smoothies as nutrition powerhouses. They are good on so many levels.

Now experimenting with a higher proportion of legumes, nuts, and seeds in my diet.

I eat absolutely no gluten. I limit intake of all grains, but up to two servings of non-glutenous grain a day is fine. I avoid all added sugar--high fructose corn syrup, sugar, honey, etc. I stay away from soybean oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, and other oils not named olive or coconut. I base my diet off of whole, unprocessed foods, and I prepare them in healthful, delicious ways.

Daily exercise. Sunlight whenever possible.

Supplements: Currently? None. Supplements that have helped in the past (and I can personally recommend) are fish oil, zinc, apple cider vinegar, Vitamin D.

Best way to make your skin smooth and clear eventually:

Plant-based diet is the best medicine for everything.. That's if you consume at least 80% raw, mainly from veggies and fruits.
Exercising: cardio is great for skin and lifting a bit.
Thinking positive and try not to stress or think about acne.

I am doing these and my skin is currently very smooth and clearing up!
I am a vegan raw 100%. I feel better, have more energy, saving animals a year, glow skin, I look younger, etc.

Agreed. I had a similar experience; my brother and I went out to a chinese restaurant and ordered 2 dishes of meat and vegetables to split between us. The waiter seemed shocked we didn't order any rice and kept asking and making sure we didn't want an order of steamed rice. The table across from us had an order of it and as you said, there was probably a good 2 and a half cups, if not more, of rice each on the platter.

I was tested today for allergies/sensitivities to foods and was pleasantly surprised to see that I do just fine with rice. Sadly, though, my body doesn't tolerate most foods.

It's a very individual thing, you should get tested for food allergies, they could run a rice test with it.

Rice does not effect acne ...rice cool down our liver ... so i t is important for us to eat moderate amount of rice .
