Hydrogentaed Oils or Partially Hydrogented Oils. I think they aggrevate my acne. Anybody else want to chime in?

It's possible. The hydrogenated trans fats is made in such a way to have longer shelf life. Just avoid foods with trans fats! (ie. peanut butter, etc.) Always check labels.

Whether they aggravate acne or not, you should stay far far away from them. Avoid butter substitutes, fried foods (especially from fast food places), and anything else with hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils in the ingredient list.

yeah, they finally made it mandatory to list hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils on the labels. Stupid food industry. :roll:

^ I agree, as a bodybuilder I avoid hydrogenated oils more than saturated fats (although hydrogenated oils act like saturated fats), but I don't think food ever has affected my acne

Virgin Coconut oil is best for frying and Olive oil is best for drizzling.

Woah, there's a cross culture term if I ever saw one. What's drizzling? (looked it up on Google). Oh I see. In that case...I love drizzling olive oil onto my salads! (Made me think of raining. :lol:)
