Have you noticed any difference in the amount of acne you have? If you are still breaking out or have increased acne, then try switching to all rice, buckwheat, quinoa, or corn noodles instead. ;-)
Stage 1 (Treatment):
* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)
* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.
Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002
* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)
* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.
Stage 3 (Correction):
* 1/18/08 Ultimate Colon Cleanse (30 day program)
* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).
* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

I've had a fair few new breakouts recently though, but I stupidly decided to eat a whole load of crap last week as well (sweet, sugary stuff that I know from past experience won't do me any favours), so it'd hard to blame it on the noodles.
That said, I really eat so much noodles and bread (wholemeal), almost as part of a staple diet, that it's frustrating to think that if I cut those two things out, I might be clear altogether - but I'm running out of other, different things to eat!
Will have to see how cutting them out of my diet - or at least, cutting down on them - affects me.

Brown rice vs white rice
The hulls on rice are cracked open revealing the bran and the rice itself, for white rice the bran is washed off and polished revealing a food which has a longer shelf life. No good standing fungus, mold, bacteria would touch the stuff. It's the bran potion of rice that contains most of the nutrients including vitamin b-complexes and it's the section which contains the fibre.
Why do you think some of those asian dudes live to like 120 just eating rice or so many people (1/2 worlds populations staple diet is rice) eat it.
Not an expert on noodles but wholemeal bread contains sugars, wheat and most importantly (or i'd say unfortunately) yeast. Yeast is baddddddddd, nobody should consume yeast that wants to be healthy.
Say bye to all yeast products (pastry, breads, alcahol etc).

OzPower i thought wholemeal bread is good?! at least it has a lower GI than white bread...or is it just because of yeast? why is yeast bad anyway? tons of ppl eat bread and they're none the worse for it...i think?

Yeasts can lead to candidia overgrowth, yeasts produce ethanol which is an alcahol which can lead to you fealing hungover all the time. Yeasts need sugar to survive, ever find yourself craving breads, alcahols or potatos? Now ya know why. Yeasts in turn can invade the body causing a multitude of problems.
Read this, why bread MAY cause acne.

You may be right, hey i'm not a major expert here, but like look at things a differant way, leave bread out for a couple of days, will go stale and mould will start growing. I got news for you, the mould is already in the bread, i have a fealing your gut isn't going to like digesting fungus! Then you got the refined sugar to deal with, refined flour if you eat white bread not to mention any addidtives, coloring, bug killer, preservatives that may be present.
Think logically for a second, humans are the only animals for example to eat dead food, processed foods, milk as adults, milk from another animal, food without enzymes, food with extras, poisons (aspartame) , the list is very long. Bread is unatural. Brown rice is rice thats only had it's hull cracked off, the bran still is in tact, nothing added, no processing virtually, it's about as natural a food as you are going to find.
Thats my take on grains. If you disagree, that's cool and have a nice life
