As of now Im consuming 2 scoops of whey protein daily and when I go to gym I add one more scoop (after exercise). I go to gym 4 times a week and I have personal trainer.
I consume jack3d only before exercise session, which mean I consume it 4 times a week.
I've asked my dermatologist and she said that I should stop consuming whey protein because it cause hormon instability. Therefore, acne-prone people like me would have new acnes consistently. I really want to build my muscles, even if I need way more time (like 2 years) it's still fine with me, as long as I CAN build my muscles. I don't need to look really buff, but at least a bit buff because originally I'm skinny.
My questions are:
1. Do you know any other supplement brand that won't cause hormon instability so I can safely consume it and have no fear of growing new acne?
2. When I told my doctor that I still want to build my body, she said that maybe I can try by reducing the consumption of these supplements. She said I can start with only 1 scoop of whey protein daily and 2 scoop when there's exercise. Anyone of you have acne-prone skin and reduce your whey supplement intake and never grow any serious acne anymore?
3. If let's say there's no other option, do you think switching to natural foods would do it? I was thinking maybe I can start with consuming chicken breast, egg white, salmon, soy milk, etc. would it help me to gain muscle but at the same time they would help me to stop my acne breakouts?
If yes to the 3rd question, how many of these "foods" do I need daily to replace my regular protein intake? (2 scoops daily, and one extra scoop every exercise session)
PS: I know some of you would think I'm ridiculous because there are a lot of people out there who are also acne-prone but never grow anything on their face after using supplement. Problem is, I'm one of the unfortunate that get acne breakouts by consuming whey supplement.
