Need some help/advice on diet & acne

Hey guys im Ryan and 19 living in LA. First time post and thanks for advance for reading this essay. First I want to start by saying I had bad acne in high school and went on accutane in 11th grade and it basically removed my acne. Last year around spring it resurfaced and I have no idea why. I am in college and did drink a considerable amount, but kept the rest of my diet clean. Now I don't eat any dairy or drink booze, only eat white meat, eat gluten free bread and plenty of fruits and vegetables. I am a weightlifter though so I do need to eat a lot of food. I go through 4 loaves of gluten free bread a week (brand is "food for life"), and thats about 10 slices a day. I read online that gluten free is good for acne but just discovered it may be high in the glycemic index. I also eat around 160 grams of protein to make sure I am building muscle. I really have no idea what to do or where to turn.

And I am using Benzaclin (5%) with tazroac (0.1%). I also do a great job of washing my face and also take vitamins a, c, b-100 and daily multi. I also drink aloe vera juice and lemon juice every morning and night. I also poke a hole in a vitamin e tablet to spread over my face as I believe I have some pigmentation marks from previously healed wounds. I am doing everything right (you can tell I have done a good deal of research) but am still breaking out. It is really frustrating and any advice I can get would be awesome.

Thanks so much
