"Safe" foods

9 posts in this topic

Instead of concentrating of foods I should be eating, I've been worrying too much on foods I should be avoiding. So I'm pretty much confused at the moment. I'm pretty sure food has an effect on acne, I maybe wrong but thats my opinion. I found by cutting certain foods out of my diet, my acne slightly improves.

So all I'm asking here is for a definitive list of "safe" foods. I know it maybe different from person to person. But let’s look at the universal foods, the foods that seem to cause an effect on acne.

Safe foods. I would say anything natural and un- or minamally tampered with. (natural foods)

I believe that if you are allergic to a particular food it can cause acne. I recently went to an allergist, had blood drawn to be tested for food allergies. I already had suspected that I was allergic to several foods and the blood tests confirmed that. I get terrible acne from any food containing SOY. It turns out most processed foods contain some form of soy ( including my favorite...chocolate!) It didnt matter what product I was putting on my face or what antibiotics I was taking, if I ate anything containing soy, I broke out. So, if your DR says you can't get Zits from food... don't believe it! Ask your DR to blood test you for the top 8 food allergies. It's a good place to start. biggrin.gif

The only entirely safe foods are fresh fruit & veg, nuts, seeds and fish...everything else has at least a little bit of risk.

actually, fish is a risk. Iodine.
