my diet works well

Solution: eat less. You're probably eating way too many calories anyway
But you're gonna say: I'm hungry! I want to eat!
Ok, so eat carrots! I replace 1 or 2 meals per day with carrots, and no more acne! I stopped Minocycline, BP, Differin and I almost never wash my face anymore. And I'm not hungry, like you think I would be.
For breakfast I have no time anyway, so I grab a few carrots on my way out.
For lunch I eat a quizznos sub with turkey, dressing, and any other kinds of unhealthy crap.
If I get home and I'm hungry again, I eat a big pastrami sandwich, some juice, muffin, or a pint of ice cream.
For dinner I eat carrots.
Moral of the story: when you want to eat something, don't stop yourself! Eat anything you want (with the exception of seafood, oatmeal and bananas of course, cause they definitely cause acne). Have 1 or 2 meals per day of anything you want, and for the rest of the time, if you get hungry, just eat carrots.

Oatmeal and bananas both have a high glycemic index, which is also bad for acne.
I've had acne in 10 years, and I couldn't help but notice in these 10 years, that certain foods make me break out, and not eating certain foods gives me clear skin.
If I were living on carrots, that would be bad for my health. But I'm not. For 2 meals per day I eat anything I want. For the rest of the time, if I get hungry, I eat carrots. Most people eat 2 times per day anyway, but I tend to get hungry a lot, so I usually eat 4 times.
There are two types of people on this board: ones with acne, who need all the help they can get, and ones who no longer have acne, and try to help people who still have acne.
There are 2 types of people with acne on here: ones who will try anything (like washing your face with piss, not masturbating for a long time, and filtering their shower water) and those people who try almost nothing, because they think that 90% of what people tell them is bullshit.
Like I said before, I stopped all medication. The only thing I do once in a while is wash my face with baking powder to get rid of dead skin and clear the pores.
So, according to your logic, I'm lying to you, because I'm trying to trick you! How does that make sense to you?
You can try it and it might work, or it might not work. If it worked for me, then it will work for some other people, which is why I'm posting it.
If you think it might not work, then don't try it. What's the point of telling me I'm wrong? It doesn't even make sense to tell me I'm wrong, since I'm saying that it worked for me already. This is not a theory, it's what keeps my skin clear.

Glycemic index has no effect on acne. Don't buy the hype.

Eat regularly: a wide variety of vegetables, eggs, meat/fish, cheese, yogurt, butter, fruit, nuts/seeds.
Occasionally eat: beans, squash, potatoes.
Don't eat: sugar, grains, most processed food.

Some foods do make acne worse.
The key to controlling acne is a very controlled regimented dieted plan and lifestyle.
Time planning and organisation in our lives are very important.
