Anybody else scared to eat chocolate? Or is it just me? Anybody feel like they break out more if they eat chocolate? My work has really good brownies and I hate the thought of what will happen to me and my acne if I eat one.
I eat chocolate, but not sugary desserts like brownies and hot fudge anymore (sadly). In my experience, food items with refined sugar and cow's milk have caused problems with my acne.
The type of chocolate I go for is in chocolate bar form with a high percentage of cacao. Gevalia makes a couple of bars like that. One is called Midnight Reverie, and it's very tasty. Paired with raspberries or strawberries and almond butter, it's a very satisfying dessert. I actually got the idea to eat the really dark chocolate bars with berries and almond butter here on acne.org, so I have to give credit where credit is due.
My advice is to really consider what is in the food you are about to consume. If the food is prepared by someone who is unaware of how it can affect one's acne, or gut health, then it probably isn't worth the risk of eating. Not fun advice to read, but I write from experience.
Hope this helped you.
