Ha ha, I'm Italian too and I know what you're talking about. I remember as a kid coming home from a visit with my grandparents with a face full of red spots. My mother would always give me her pity look.

So you have a fast metabolism too? It seems like a common trait of acne prone people. Maybe extra male hormones keep the metabolism quick while increasing sebum.

I've experimented with different types of diets to see how they affected my skin and my weight always remains pretty stable. If I eat less calorically dense foods, I just eat more of it naturally. I guess there really is something to the setpoint weight theory.

I'm 5'5" and weigh just under 8 stone. Thats not normal is it. I've been to the docs and everything and they say there is nothing medically wrong with me, so what can i do to slow my metabolism down? I eat like a pig, and I don't just eat junk , I eat lots of carbs and protein to try and spur things along too. So not only have I got a pizza face, I'm a skinny bean too!!!! :wall::(

That's too thin. Your body fat ratio must be below 5%.

I'm 5'1" and look very skinny at that weight.

I have a friend that's 5'5" and looked downright anorexic at 115.

Do you have a high metabolism?
