Is it true that wheat bread causes acne?

27 posts in this topic

As a bodybuilder I eat alot of wheat bread and drink alot of milk, I've been told milk causes acne but does wheat bread as well?

If so can you tell me why?

I just finished making a thread about this. It took me a while to believe that wheat was not good.. but its really not good for you if you have acne.

Milk is dairy. Dairy is pasteurized. It has all kinds of hormones in it that they feed cows...Unless your milk is organic anyways.

And the reason wheat is bad (all breads, pasta) is it contains gluten. Gluten is an inflammatory=not good for acne.


If this sounds like you, please quit trying to control your skin:

I acknowledge that, but how badly does it affect acne?

Is it a massive irritant like rubbing your face in bacon grease or does it not affect as much, as if you simply used a less than reputable acne product?

I don't think I could give it up to be honest ... unless my acne got alot worse

I'm sure moderate amounts of wheat bread would be okay, unless you're extremely sensitive to gluten which some people are. Find out if you are, it all depends on the person. I'm personally fine when I eat wheat bread. Now 10 slices a day may be overboard, so cut down and see if you still break out from it. I had a time when I was eating 4-6 slices daily and I never broke out more than I normally did when not eating it. I usually eat about 2-4 slices now when making avocado/veggie sandwiches. The only things that really break me out are sugary, processed foods. I'm even fine when I eat things like pizza and drinking milk. Again, some people are much more sensitive to certain foods, you need to find out what breaks you out, though it can sometimes be hard to pinpoint it.

Thank you. And I highly doubt I'm super sensitive to it as I've never really had big acne problems, recently I've just been buying a loaf of bread and eating 10 slices a day for carbs, I'll try switching to other carb sources for a bit.

I think wheat can be bad for certain people, I used to eat all that whole grain stuff before I found out that it worsened my acne.

Just test it. You only need a week to find out. Just do not eat ANY wheat products for a week and see what the outcome is.

Dude, your body is NOT going to be okay if you cut out staples like wheat and dairy. Just cut out excess sugar, which you don't need anyways, and keep plugging on.

Yea, I'm not going to. I might change from wheat to other carb sources like potatoes for some meals but not all. I would never stop drinking milk unless my acne got horrible ... it would hinder my bodybuilding too much

I eat Ezekiel bread and English Muffin like everyday.... and i am clear.=\


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.

I don't think dairy is a staple food.

It really depends on the individual.

On my case all carbs would feed the Candida in my body which would cause acne. Eliminating all carbs including wheat bread cured it.

What do all of you use as a substitute for wheat bread? Can you eat any bread? Also along with wheat bread what are other products that contain a lot of wheat the should be eliminated?

I think I might have problems with wheat so any advice would be great.


Be patient, keep it simple, and live as healthy as possible, you will be happy with where that path leads you.

I haven't eat bread for like 3 months and 0 improvement with that.. Seems like you can't eat anything if you have acne.. you can't even drink water, there are chemicals in it!... Don't go outside there's pollution that might make your acne worse! Don't do anything, stop living ?

You might not have to totally cut out bread from your diet but just not eat so much... and when you do eat brown bread instead of white for example. Or what I often do its for example instead of having a sandwich with bread, I instead take a large lettuce leaf and fill it up with ham, tomato etc. Its alot more healthy and is actually really yummy :)

Once I didn't eat bread for 2 weeks, only eating meat, eggs, cheese and lettuce and cucumber and my skin cleared up completely... so that is enough proof for me that bread isn't so good for you!

Saying that bread in general is bad for you is not too smart. 100% whole grains are actually very good for you. They are high in fiber, protein, and lots of vitamins and phyonutrients. Your supposed to get at least 3 serving of whole grains a day. There is a big difference between refined carbs and whole grain carbs.

No, bread is not bad for everyone. But it is bad for me because I have an allergy to it :)

Yes,

wheat bread causes acne, sometimes even severe acne in some people. Everyone has a different degree of inflammatory response from gluten. Your body views it as a foreign invader, it causes inflammation and nasty little bumps on your face.

I have a very clean diet and could not figure out what was causing my recent acne breakouts, I started to look at exactly what I had been doing, a recent stomach bug forced me to eat a lot of plain bread products like crackers/bagels while I recovered, so I started a trial and gave this up, within 3 days my skin completely turned around.

I was getting a new pimple every day, this immediately stopped when I gave up gluten.

It is no nice to not even think about this stuff anymore, I am free from this issue finally after years of struggling with mild/moderate issues, I do not even think about my face anymore.

I leave the house sans makeup every day now and it's the best feeling in the world.

I'm not even attempting to cheat, I'm find with all the alternatives I have found -

Please do yourself a favor and try giving up wheat / gluten for a couple weeks and see how your body responds, I never had stomach issues with consuming wheat so I was completely clueless.

I am telling everyone I run across with an acne issue about this :D

Milk is already hindering your bodybuilding by being a shit protein and all-around terrible thing for your health. You can replace that protein/carbs so easily elsewhere.

10 slices of bread a day is also way too much. If you're really worried about it get organic sprouted grain bread. I eat 1-4 slices a day with PB or turkey sandwiches (it depends on what exercise I did that day).

alot of people say that meat is bad for you if you have acne. i have mild acne which now my skin looks a little bit better...but i ate meat all my life and never was a cause of my acne. it depends on certain people. everybody has a different metabolism which some certain foods can react different in someone´s body. i´m not saying that meat can´t cause acne, but it´s not my problem, for me meat doesn´t effects my acne nor bread. but like i said before it depends on certain people.

Yes, bread IS bad for everyone. Gluten is harmful regardless if you have a sensitivity or not. Not to mention, breads have a nasty habit of spiking blood sugar - again, bad for everyone and especially bad for acne.

It's even less smart to say whole grains are good for you. Whole grains in general are not inherently good for you. It's really quite a sad thing to see false knowledge so commonly spread. You can get all of your essential vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fiber from good wholesome unprocessed meat, vegetables, fruits and nuts. Grains are far from essential to our health.

NOT true. I am a raw foodist and I not only don't eat wheat or dairy but I don't eat ANY grains. And not only is my body "okay" but I have a healthier, stronger, SEXIER body than I have ever had in my entire life. My skin is totally clear. The clearing of my skin BEGAN when I gave up wheat, and it only continued to get clearer, stronger and more beautiful tone as I went more raw.

Raw food is the answer to health. I'm 90% raw and 10% of what I eat is meat and eggs. This completes the amino acids in the diet. The raw greens, fruits, sprouts and vegetables keep my body healthy and alkaline.

People do not want to accept the truth. They want to keep eating whatever they want and expect to have good skin. It doesn't work that way.


Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):

Morning:

Gentle wash with DKR cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)

Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)

Evening:

Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser

Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)

DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil
