I have never had a problem with citrus and acne. In fact, I've noticed very good results if I eat teng, uhhh, not tangerine, tangemelos? The darker orange fruits that are easy to peel. When they are available up here, I always buy them even though it can get expensive.

The book I read this in is "Better health through natural healing" by Dr Ross Trattler.

This is in the chapter on acne

It is an international best-seller

Not all fruits are good. Many fruits cause internal irritation/problems.

This author says

bananas, mangos and papayas – are on his forbidden list because they have a higher glycemic index, meaning they raise blood sugar more rapidly

i think the key is "everything in moderation." i don't think fruit in general is bad. but eating TOO much of it is. same would go for any other food.

I agree.

Some foods can be accepted more easily by our bodies.

We need carbs but must not eat too much of them.

So rice is OK, if we eat just a little of it.

Potatoes - OK but not too much and not every day

Lot of vegies can be eaten without problems of side effects.

Fruits must be rotated - different fruits for every meal.

Eggs can be eaten every day. They are very healthy. Eat raw eggs not cooked.

Limit diary consumption.

while i agree with most of what you say, raw eggs are absorbed at about 1/2 the rate of cooked eggs, therefore raw isn't an efficient way to eat your eggs.

I eat two hard boiled eggs with my oatmeal and blueberries EVERY morning for breakfast... but then again, i also life alot of weights so i am looking for low GI carbs, and fat burners and efa's.
