Why would protein based foods aggravate acne? Thats pretty ridiculous.

If you want to bulk up, eat lots of steak, lean chicken, tuna, egg whites (with the occassional yolk), salmon, and did I mention steak? You must also eat a large amount of carbs as well. You can limit your carb intake to clean carbs such as oats, whole grains, veggies and fruit.

Depending on your bodytype, you will want to eat well beyond maintenance calories to maximize strength and mass gains.

That is nuts. Protein doesn't aggravate acne...come on. Disregarding that fact, what is he supposed to do, eat vegetables all day long? There's no way he'll gain any mass at all with such a diet.

Like they say, if you want to get big..you can't eat like a bird or train like a woman.

Care to give an explanation? There is no reason at all for whey protein to cause breakouts.

Whey protein is almost mandatory, because its pretty difficult to get protein requirements in with only real food sometimes - and as an added bonus whey protein has a more complete amino acid profile than any other protein source.

Huh? Pure whey protein isolate has NO SUGAR. Most whey protein concentrates have 1 or 2 grams of sugar. How does that cause breakouts..?

Besides which, you're implying that sugar aggravates acne...and well, nevermind.

look at my sig, read my regimen; when I eat sugar of any kind, I get acne, when I don't, I don't get acne. I don't know (or care) how or why whey protein causes acne, I just know that it does, because I tried it.

It's different for all people; the only way to find out is to try it and see what happens.

How do you know that? You used antibiotics and topicals. Try diet alone and get back to me.

Diet alone will not work; medication alone does work, but not 100%. They help each other. I've used medications consistently for more than 4 years. My skin had a great improvement, but I still got some zits. When I started a diet, it helped clear me almost 100%. I found what works for me, I told you how I did it. My job's done. You can try it or not, but either way, my face is clear now, and I know which foods to eat and which ones to stay away from.

Whey Protein Alternatives
Cool Hemp Protein Powder http://www.coolhemp....uct.htm#protein
Hempola Baking Flour http://www.hempola.com/
Nutiva Hemp Protein Powder

MLO Brown Rice Protein
NutriBiotic Rice Protein http://www.nutribiot...riceprotein.htm
VRP Rice Bran Protein http://www.vrp.com/p...=/searchresults

Red Star’s Nutritional Yeast http://www.redstaryeast.com/



I just bought myself the MLO brand and it has brown rice syrup in it but that only contributes 3g of sugar, not bad. This was $10 so I'm not getting much protein, only 15g, but there's other brands of Brown Rice Protein that gives as much as 27g with NO sugar added. Of course if you can eat meat, nuts, seeds, & legumes do so or do so organic if concerned about the hormones, etc.

Other good sources of protein are beans, foods derived from soybeans, and nuts. I add soy flour to cornbread to enhance the flavor and protein content.

In my area (NYC) there are healthfood stores all over the place, and farmers markets also. You're looking gor the words "free-range" and "grass-fed." I like to buy organic food as often as possible, just because I can, but if you can't really afford it, there's really no difference that I've noticed between normal and organic food. Just make sure you wash all your vegetables in hot water, and apples and plums with soap or vegetable wash. You wanna wash off all the wax they put on it so it lasts longer.

Canned tuna is very high in protein, about 25-30 grams i think....thats about the same as a scoop of whey protein or casein protein.....its also a hell of a lot cheaper also....alot of people can`t stand the taste of it though....try mixing it with mayonaisse if you find this.

Everything, tasty or good for you will cause terrible acne. Do not try and enjoy life. The Acne-Boogymen will break into your home and ejaculate on your face. ohmy.gif
