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.

My regimen:

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.

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.


...Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirits well

Yet again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child

Lie to me, convince me that I've been sick forever

And all of this will make sense when I get better...

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.


Morning

Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser

Neutrogena Skin Clearing Gel (SA 2%)

Olay Complete SPF15 Moisturiser (Lotion)

Night

Olay Daily Facials Cleansing Cloths - Normal to Dry

Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Forte Skin Resurfacing Cream

Spot treat with Queene Helene Mint Julep Mask

Dettol Soothing Antiseptic Cream 2-3x a week
