does chocolate break you out?

Nope. I have never found any food that makes me break out.

I don't think so. I don't really pay attention but I remember a few months ago I went on a huge chocolate binge (and I mean huge) and I didn't breakout any worse than I usually did.

No, MinnyM0use, I'm not clear, I have two pimples at the moment. I think I was a bit hasty when I said that I've never found a food that breaks me out, I meant that I haven't found anything because I haven't looked all that hard. eusa_think.gif And now that I've given it some thought, I ate some chocolate yesterday and I got a pimple this morning. I'll try eating more chocolate today and see if it was just a coincidence, lol.

You seem to know what you're talking about, so can I ask you whether having one glass of milk (with Milo) a day, is too much dairy? Everybody on this site seems to agree that dairy=bad.

yme: I do eat healthy foods mostly. Does eating healthy food help you (you specifically, not for people generally) keep your skin clear?

chocolate does not break me out. No food seems to. I have eaten really "bad" foods the latest week, drinking milk, eating mcdonalds, lots of cheese, chocolate/candy , loads of bread, yoghurt.. since i started The Regimen last friday ( yeah, one week already! ) i think i have got one, maybe two zits. So, i can not say food breaks me out. BUT, of course i don't know for sure, but atleast i don't think it does.

I really dont think a little chocolate is going to break me out. I'm not going to eat a whole chocolate cake or even a brownie but a little chocolate to calm the craving is not going to hurt me.

Yes. Regardless of what studies show or don't show, whenever I eat alot of chocolate, I break out the next morning.

BUT, if you break out at all it would best suit you to at the very least stop dairy and sugar and refined grains.  Many are having great success.

I am a total CHOCAHOLIC

But a couple of years ago I weaned myself of the stuff and had hardly any for 2-3 months just to see if it would make a difference to my acne...it didn't

Also I was pretty much clear the whole of last year and I ate chocolate everyday

So for me it's a no... however I wouldn't completely discount the link between diet and acne altogether. It's something that I'm researching at the moment and may look at trying if the progress I have made so far stalls and I can't get completely clear.
