Reason why even small amounts of sugar breaks me out?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone know why this is? I Have other food intolerances too (gluten/dairy/most grains).
Ive been working on my digestion, bone broths fermented foods etc.
Will this intolerance to sugar/fruit sugar go once my gut flora has balanced out? 
Even a small bit of dark chocolate or fruit shows up on my skin

By fruit sugar I am guessing you mean whole fruit. Here's my experience which may help you. I stopped sugar in 2012. My skin cleared up within 2 weeks. For the next 3 years even a tiny amount of sugar  ( including honey, raw sugar ) would break me out. I could eat fruits with no problem. Fruit juice on the other hand broke me out.

However after 3 years, I can eat small amounts of sugar. Actually even little extra does not cause a problem. So I think my answer will be yes, after your system settles down you can eat some amount of sugar.

Don't get scared by the fact that it took me 3 years. I did not know what to do and experimented a lot that's why it took me 3 years. I got to know that bone broth and fermented foods help only about 6 months back.
