Ok, how bad is your acne now?

GI is a good start but you won't be cured. Most get better by replenishing their gut flora, it's not easy but it's up to you.

Lists of high gi and low gi foods are everywhere and easy to find. But remember it the total affect af all the foods/amounts in every meal that matters. That's called the glycemic load. Low gi foods counter the affect of high gi foods. And low gi foods are those with plenty of fiber and/fat and low in sugars/refined carbs. And by meal I mean any thing you eat together, or any drink or snack eaten alone. For example never eat or drink a sweet thing alone without a high fiber or fat food to lower the glycemic impact. And really, never drink sugar.

Avoiding high glycemic meals is extremely important for all aspects of your health and has benefits far more important than acne. Do it for life.

Okay cat amongst the pigeons time.

GI is grossly misused. GI levels of foods are mainly tested on fasted people. GI is far less important on non fasted people especially when consumed with proteins and fats. I would argue that the GI load is more telling than anything else.

Whist i agree low GI foods generally have more nutrients, GI is pretty much irrelevant when non fasted and if consumed with protein and fats.
