That reply is far and wide! There are many schools of thought on the subject. I'll just list a few:

1) Foods that are too acidic. An over-acidic body has acne as one of its side effects (the thread is in the diet forum)
2) Foods with high glycemic indexes (GI's). Foods with high GI's conduce insulin in the body which may lead to inflammatory reactions. That is...(some) carbs. Do a web search on this topic.
3) Foods that impede liver function in the long term. Read this
4) Other foods that contain processed ingredients like: refined sugars, gluten, etc.

Just remember that this doesn't necessarily affect everyone. Those who are more prone to acne have more sensitive skin receptors, etc.

There are lots more out there. Hope that helps.

Acid/Alkaline Food Charts - http://acne.org/mess...pic.php?t=22105

GI levels for foods - http://www.mesquitem...Index_chart.htm

(Anything above 50 is considered to be high. Just remember, it's not to avoid them completely, but just limit your intake of them)

Yep, that's one of them. Basically, when it boils down to it, you just need to eat healthy. Healthy body = healthy skin. Trans fats, refined sugars, meat loaf. wink.gif

I saw that all meat is acidic.....But I love meat...Am I still going to be able to eat it???

If I can still eat it....how much meat can I eat in a day? with out overloading and causing a breakout??Or will eating meat period increase your chances of breaking out....by a whole lot????

And what types of meat have the least chance of breaking you out?

Lean meats are the best. Turkey, chicken.

Also, it depends on how you prepare it as well. Mind you, it should be well-cooked or else you risk getting infected with parasites.

You don't have to cut out all meats. Try to balance your diet 70% alkaline, 30% acidic. Over alklaline isn't too good either. You see, with the pH balance of your body, the results aren't immediate, like the myth goes about eating chocolate. You probably won't breakout after eating tons meat in one day. It's all about the long run. That's how our body reacts. Slowly, yet surely.

Fish is fine. Just don't overdo it on farm-raised salmon. Purported mercury and everything. Everything in moderation.

Rice? Brown rice...at least. Just avoid the whites.

Hmm...Wheat - gluten. All mixed up. Bran is better in most cases.

Dude...you're freaking out! You don't have to go to the very extremes to find balance in your diet. Moderation is the key. If you eat a little wheat, it's no biggie. Even a moderate amount of wheat, it's probably not going to do anything bad to ya.

For me, I've seen bran cereals with wheat in them, and I just prefer to get pure bran cereal. If you like the taste of wheat + bran, then go for it! Breakfast is supposed to be a fun thing. smile.gif

Afaik, shrimp isn't "bad" for our skin. Just eat it in moderation. Just beware of toxic mercury and parasites and what not of course. lol. Avoid ALL fried seafoods of any kind if you can. (Fried shrimp being one of them)

SInce I have other problems with blood sugar, I usually have a low carb diet type cereal weekday mornings. The ingredients probably aren't the most natural, but most cereals give me hunger pains within half an hour of eating them (ie eating nothing is better than eating starch for some of us). Look for whole grains if nothing else. flour=bad - very, very bad. I don't have nearly as much trouble with sugar as I do with flour.
99.5% Clear (skin gets 'congested' PMS week, but no actual breakouts)
---------------------------
Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes + a few drops Rimmel Makeup Remover solution
3/4 AHA Toner* & 1/4 Glycerin (cotton pad) -- good toner, moisturizer, and makeup base (use less glycerin if not under makeup)
Occasional Treatments (2-3x/week): Exfoliating bp wash* in shower, 2.5% bp lotion* at night
CoverGirl TruBlend Powder Foundation
---------------------------
* = Klear Action Kit (Pro-Activ knockoff)
---------------------------
Gluten-free diet (for non-acne reasons, but it seems to have cleared my acne)
