Crap includes -
Apple turnover - refined flour, likely trans fat, tons of sugar.
Cinnamon raisin bagel - super dense source of refined flour.
Snacks like Ritz crackers, wheat thins - refined flour and trans fat.
Iffy but possibly ok on occasion in an otherwise nutrient dense low to moderate glycemic diet:
Ralph's yogurt - is it sweetened?
Low glycemic Linguini with extra virgin olive oil and salt - add some veggies to it.
White jasmine rice with low sodium soy sauce - add some veggies to it.
Marinated beef short ribs (galbi) - covered in sugary sauce?
I hate nuts/seeds and I hate most vegetables (I don't eat salad for instance)
How should I modify my diet to decrease my acne?
Start eating vegetables. Let your taste buds grow up.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
