Just wondering how well the average acne sufferer eats, i believe there is a big connection between diet and acne.
What I consider healthy food : fresh friut, fresh vegitables, water, milk and dairy products in moderation, lean meat, brown bread, natural yogurt, unsalted nuts.
Unhealthy:anything cooked in a frying pan, caffeine, sweets, take-aways, fizzy drinks, crisps, large quantities of chocolate, processed/mocrowave food.

I eat healthy for other reasons, not acne. I truly believe acne is not derived from diet in most individuals....I know some females that live tremendously healthy lifestyles, yet they have cystic acne. Diet manipulation also did not work on me, either...

A healthy diet means different things for different people. Some people think sprouts and soy are very healthy (thye caused me huge probs). some people think steak and butter are bad...never caused me probs with acne or otherwise.

Moderation is the best thing and then work around that I think. junk food can't possibly be good. Food impacts everything else, makes sense that it would impact your skin to one degree or another. There are obese people with clear skin, fit people with acne...so obviously there is some genetic component, but fat people can lose weight by following a more regimented diet than someone with a very fast metabolism needs to, and I think the same can apply to people with acne. dairy may add fat to some clear skinned persons hips, but may cause a skinny person to get a breakout.

I can eat whatever I want yet not put on any weight, so that now means food intake has nothing to do with obesity? Having a bad diet affects different people in different ways i.e diabetes, acne, obesity etc everyone is different. I think a diet rich in fruit, water, vitamins, vegs etc and relativly free of crisps, chocolate etc is the best diet possible. I will improve your health on all fronts.
Currently recovering from prolonged moderate breakout

Current Regim:
Trying to avoid: Dairy/Sugar/Carbs/Processed Foods/Alcohol/Caffeine
Suplements: zinc/multi-vitamin/fish oil/ACV tablets/vitamin C/B5
Topicals:coconut oil/Jojoba oil/ACV AM and PM, washing with olive oil soap, BP AM and PM
Current status: couple of small angry white heads which is annoying but they clear up pretty quickly, mainly red marks and scars though
