White Rice Or Wheat?which One Is,lets Say, Less Harmful For A Acne Patient(In General)?

26 posts in this topic

hello!

i'm not sure if anyone else has this question in mind but i am in serious confusion!

there are people who say white rice is poison and others who stress on a gluten-free diet.

if one had to choose,which one would you choose?

going by logic , white rice is bad for it raises the insulin level(sudden spike) ..for it's got high GI.whereas gluten is said to be inflammatory.

so,what do u think?which one is (let's say) less harmful(or safer to carry on with)??

(my story :

i have both white rice and whole wheat flat bread(home made) for lunch and dinner respectively.i've had phases in between when am absolutely clear and dnt have acne for may be a mnth or more.

so,does that mean am intolerable to any one of it??

which one should i quit? )

if u have any question regarding this,please let me know.

i'll add it here.

Their are a lot, if not all nutritional camps that like to vilify wheat and white rice. Yes these foods are high on the glycemic index, BUT when consumed with protein and fat the glycemic load changes. Originally when foods were tested for the concept of Glycemic Index, foods were isolated and fed to individuals to then test subsequent blood sugar levels. The only thing is that we don't eat these foods by themselves unless you are on some sort of wacky mono diet. White rice has been the biggest nutritional staple in the world for thousands of years. White rice is single handledly the most hypo-allergenic food you can eat. That is something to take into account considering acne is an inflammatory disease, and inflammation not only comes from elevated insulin levels, but from undigested proteins leaking in the blood stream.

Now on to wheat. I could write an entire thesis on wheat, and I just might. This too gets probably get the worst wrap in the health industry, and it's not necessarily unjustified. Although, the real reason for such a high wheat intolerance lies in the immunity, and gut integrity of the individual. The actual genetic suseptibilty for this disease is approximatly less than 5 percent! That is, to have 2 forms of HLA-DQ protein molecule in your DNA. Now let me remind you in almost all cases I would recommend most people avoid wheat, but the issue on hand here with wheat is more complex. It's also important that people understand the dynamics of the human digestive tract, as well as fundamental endocrinology if you really want to examine acne's root causation.

A very important factor when considering your overall diet is to understand how the digestive tract works. Stress plays the largest role in the composition of villi integrity in the small and large intestine. What is usually referred to as "leaky gut", is generally a compromised gut tract, i.e. villi. When these villi are weak, and sparse it becomes very easy for proteins to leak into the blood stream. Stress comes in a number of forms but psychological stress can be the most powerful. How hard do you work on your diet? How much do you stress about the foods you are eating, and whether they are gluten free? wheat free? dairy free? etc....

The point of this is that, no one here has the right answer. Their are common themes amongst those that get clear, yes. But know that you are unique, and just because you read something doesn't mean that it applies to you. Your whole world can literally change in 2 seconds based on new information.

I'm not sure if I quite answered the question as you would have like, but rather saw this as a platform to address an issue.

You seem to already know the answer, and I also sent you a private message. Obviously, you know these items are suspect and to be cautious at the frequency, and size that you eat these type of foods.

thank u.

ur posts are always so so informative and helpful.

i would blog this quote of ur's ASAP.=)

am sure this would help many more,not just me.

i'd just like to add that i've always had wheat and white rice.

in my teen years as well as when i started having acne issues at abt 17-18..i am certain that it's stress that had worsened my acne.

i would like to believe that my gut is not intolerable to wheat or white rice(and yes,i have it with veggies,lentils and protein...there was a phase when i had it with just a lil' something like a vegetable and dal but no fish or chicken)..because i've been doing very good in phases.

i have a balanced diet.i have good fruits for skin like papaya,apple and cucumber everyday.

i have veggies in good amount..including sweet potato.

but then i also have potato..which i am pleased to say i've very less as compared to what i used to.(may be one medium size potato or so each day in simple light home made curry)

i have an egg almost 5 days a week and fish too,almost 5-6 days a week(or i swap it with chicken cooked in turmeric and olive oil...home made light curry)

i will track and try to maintain a proper BALANCED diet.and see if that has an positive effect on my body(gut),mind and soul.

i do free hand exercises,some yoga poses and pranayama(breathing exercises).on days when i dnt do these i dance for quite some time or simply walk around in my room for pretty long time.

i read and do things that would calm me down.

i'll keep a track and let u know.

thanks once again.

luck & love.

I think the key is to eat proteins that you can digest effeciently, and to eat enough. Some people go on high protein diets, which increases their level of inflammation because they are not properly breaking it all down. Yes the villi can replenish themselves once the stress is diminshed, whether that be psychological, or from diet. The body has incredibly amazing healing ability.

aanabill, you're diet sounds really well rounded. In fact your whole program sounds very good :) Keep it up!

Rice, although it still contains lectins that can do the same harm that gluten does. Just not so much. And it's they glycemic impact of the meal that matters. Not each food. It it with fat and protein and low glycemic veggies.

Also, what's good for an acne patient is what's good for human beings.


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!

eings.

i'm omitting the whole wheat roti(indian flat bread) that i used to have in dinner with white rice..just for a trial.

and check if it does effect in any way.

yes,i have veggies and fish with it.also dal(lentils) and something bitter like bitter gourd or neem leaves.(most of the days)

u're right..i keep telling my mum n dad to have a good diet and eliminate stuff but i think it's not a must for them to omit a thing or two like whole wheat etc for they dnt seem to be effected too badly.

Also, what's good for an acne patient is what's good for human beings.

Actually, the harmful lectins and anti-nutrients are in the bran of the rice husk.

Generally acne patients tent to adopt a low carbohydrate diet, which is clincally documented to cause reduced thyroid function in long-term studies. Glucose is necessary for the conversion of T4 to T3 in the liver. Also, documented is the widespread use of dietary carbohydrates as the basis of most diets in the world, AND low prevalence of acne. Two of the largest staples in the world's diet are wheat, and white rice. I think what's good for human beings is still yet to be wholly determined.

just went through a site and they said 'tomato' and 'carrot' (specially when cooked) have bad effects on acne.

is it LYCOPENE?

It sounds like you're over analyzing the diet. Try and do the best you can. It's great to have a diverse diet. It sounds like your diet is made up of a lot of traditional Indian staples. Their are a lot of americans on this board here, and america has no traditional diet what so ever. The benefits of a traditional diet, especially one with roots that are thousands of years old are that your genetics have had many years to be able to digest these foods effeciently. Not only that but these foods presented in your culture have been passed down for so many generations that they have almost been perfected to suit your cultures dietary and nutritional needs. Unfortunatly the globilization of America has created an overglorification of an American lifestyle, which might be far from ideal. America is a country that has barely any tradition or cultural roots. The diet is immature, and lacking in many areas. That is why so many american's are notorious for trying so many different dietary things, because they have not been taught based on years of tradition. I am an American, and love being here, but I think Americans are the last culture that should be giving dietary advice, as it is literally the most unhealthy in the world.

I hope this post does not seem unpatriotic, but it bothers me the rather ethnocentric views that americans have, and the globilzation of our immature culture into others. I am alarmed that no one else would suggest that you merely make small tweaks to a diet that has been passed down to you for generations!

Lectins are in the embyos of the seeds. For rice, it says they are in the periphery of the embryonic roots. There may be fewer anti nutrients in refined grains overall, but they are still there.

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/article/barley-rye-and-rice-all-contain-chitin-binding-lectins-similar-wheat-lectin-wga

And yeah, the egg is to bind up lectins as you eat them. The okra, on the other hand, is for healing the digestive tract, so you just want to have it frequently.

Do you happen to eat insects? Because their exoskeletons and fungus (mushrooms, yeast) cell walls are made from the same n-acetyl- glucosamine they your digestive tract is lined with, and so the lectins bind to those foods.

If I were you, I'd try avoiding grains completely for about a month or so, and then you can try adding them back in. Keep up the healing foods.

Considering that you don't eat wheat very often, I think the fact that commercial wheat is bromated, and bleached is inconsequential to your situation. I think you can still enjoy small amounts within reason. I believe you can enjoy eggs freely as well. Sticking to the foods are available, and of a whole food source sound like a great idea for you.

You have the egg or.mushroomor other chitin source with the food that contains the chitin binding lectin.

Why don't you have those fermented lentil buns and pancakes. Idlis?

aanabil something which you can try instead of chia seeds is tulsi seeds or sabja (which they use to make falooda) and put it in water. It will absorb it and become gelatinous. It is very good to calm your body heat especially after eating all our spicy curries.

Try it out..I have it daily..
