There've been several. Here's a bunch of links to articles and studies. The first several are probably about the same RMIT study.

Low GL diet helps acne article in medical journal:

Even though there is dispute about the idea of a low-GI low-fat diet cannot prevent insulin resistance, 3 of my diabetic friends went on the diet and were take off their medications within several weeks --- so there is something to it. Maybe its the low-GI part or maybe its the Low-Fat part.... but something worked!

I think it is important to stop caring what professionals think because they are obviously no where near as advanced as the acne.org holistic forum. We have been 5 steps ahead of them for years.

Forget medical research....ive always been a bit sceptical about food and skin...

BUT i was just very ill recently, and didnt eat any solids for about 14 days...and CLEAR SKIN.??

So, 'something' im consuming is causing my breakouts, and all i know is its NOT milk, because while i was sick, i drank nothing but milk.

Go figure, im getting a full allergy test done, asap.

Or I could just stop eating altogether, and survive on milk, id be glowing....

Yeah, I'm in with the group that believes that diet is only one part of the entire equation. I believe that eating an extremely healthy, borderline OCD diet can increase your immune systems strength and help acne immensely but it will cause more problems then its worth because of the obsessive nature. I am a firm believer in the minds power to effect the bodies overall health. I think that if we all would just stop spending so much time worrying our stress hormones and overall hormone profile would begin to normalize. I think we need to get outside, away from the process of over analyzing our acne, and just think about what we want out of our life and what we are going to do to get there.

Then don't be obsessive. I'm not, yet it cleared my skin.

And diet affects acne in so many ways: immune system, liver function, digestive health, allergies, inflammation, adrenal function, SHBG levels, hormone levels, etc, etc.
