I go training a lot lately and i need a carb boost to get through the workout. Today i "accidentally" had 93grams of sugar. Not added of course , it was an all natural smoothie mixed with some salad and green tea. It was a really intense workout about 90 mins so i know i would have used up the sugars, it seems likely that i will break out from this despite the exercise as you would still theoretically release the same amount of insulin if you didn't exercise and drank the smoothie. So what happens, would exercise make a difference?

Im on paleo for three months strong. I was clear for a week until i tried eco whey protein a week ago. Ever since then i've had mild acne so it seems to be having a strong effect!

Not to sure to be honest. From what i read, i don't think a meal here and there matters much. Its what you do on a consistent basis.

There's no way you used up 93 grams of sugar in 90 minutes. If it drained that fast we'd all drop dead after a days work.
