Rice affects Acne?

I was just wondering, has anybody noticed an increase in acne with eating rice? The last few days I've been eating rice and it seems like I am getting a few more spots than what is normal.

I think that rice is okay, but only needs to be eaten in moderate amounts. I believe that white rice is just as healthy as brown rice; but either way, rice is not that nutrient-dense, and should complement a meal, not form a meal, if that makes sense.

I went to P.F. Changs recently, and with my entree they gave me a LOT of rice (probably 2.5 cup's worth). That's just excessive, and has too many calories for too little nutrients. But would I have a problem with, say: a rice ball, some meat, a small cup of soup, a small salad, and veggies? Not at all.

Agreed. I had a similar experience; my brother and I went out to a chinese restaurant and ordered 2 dishes of meat and vegetables to split between us. The waiter seemed shocked we didn't order any rice and kept asking and making sure we didn't want an order of steamed rice. The table across from us had an order of it and as you said, there was probably a good 2 and a half cups, if not more, of rice each on the platter.

I was tested today for allergies/sensitivities to foods and was pleasantly surprised to see that I do just fine with rice. Sadly, though, my body doesn't tolerate most foods.

It's a very individual thing, you should get tested for food allergies, they could run a rice test with it.
