I eat junk food when i am stressed about my face and then i breakout the next couple of days eusa_wall.gif, I look in the mirror and then head straight for the fridge, lol eusa_boohoo.gif.

My question is, what foods are ok to eat as a snack for when i want to eat eat eat for comfort, lol. Things like what types of nuts etc etc.

EDIT: oops, spelling mistake on the title.

Thanks alot for any help,
Tom

Hi Tom...

I have a munchie problem too wink.gif

I bought dried fruit to snack on...dried apples are my favs!

Also buy a variety of fruits like bananas, apples, blueberries, raspberries...When you get the urge to snack grab a piece of fruit and it should kill the snack attack feel...

Also nuts are great, I like glazed walnuts much better but they may cause some people to break out due to the sugar...if so get the non glazed ones.

Another great snack is raisins...and the little carrots are great too and packed with vitamin A and Odwalla carrot juice is really good too

Hope this helps...anyone have any other snack ideas?

Nuts are problematic for me seemingly causing breakouts on my cheek if I eat them in large numbers so I tend to stay away.

Personally, I usually snack on some sunflower seeds mixed with flax seeds and sesame seeds.

I also like certain low/med GI fruit like Apples, Papaya or Pink Grapefruit.

shock.gif I really love cashews aswell cry.gif. I will have to change them for the seeds.
I love apples but todays apples are often grown with more sugar and they are coated with wax etc unless you buy the organic sort.

Thx for the ideas,
Tom

Food doesn't cause your breakouts. Don't stress over your current acne and you'll never have a problem.

my best advice is to do something else to keep active so you don't eat out of boredom/stress. Go for a walk/jog/hike/etc instead. If you're busy out of the house, you won't have the impulse eating problem. Exercise also helps ease stress.

Another option is to just not keep junk food (or anything else that's too quick to eat) int he house.

Just a note about dried fruit...I just read "The Clear Skin Prescription" by Dr. Perricone, and dried fruit is on the list of foods to avoid, because they cause inflamation. I don't know if it's true or not because I hate dried fruit, but a lot of the stuff in the book makes sense. Just thought I'd share...

I'd avoid dried fruit just because they're so high in sugar and lose some of the vitamins and fiber present in fresh apples. Just stick to the fresh stuff if you can, it's always better for you.
