  1. 1) Eat lots of leafy greens (spinach, kale, chard...the good stuff) at least five times a week. I try to eat an entire 5 ounce container each day, but often only finish about 3/4 of it. See item 2 below on why to not eat salad dressing. 2) Do not ever, ever eat anything with xanthan gum in it...which is a lot of food. I've even found xanthan gum in lotions and acne soaps. Xanthan gum is in every salad dressing I have ever found in stores. Sometimes you can make your own salad dressing with
  2. This is how I cured my acne with diet: 1) Eat lots of leafy greens (spinach, kale, chard...the good stuff) at least five times a week.

  3. No I did not. I remember seeing this website about two years ago and reading that there was no scientific evidence that food causes acne. I haven't researched this website much; I just posted what I discovered to try and help out. Ya...nutrients are good. And in hind sight you'd think that is obvious and just common sense, but as an engineer speciallizing in abstract theory (fluid dynamics, heat transfer, and electromagnetic fields are all really cool) I can sometimes lack common sense, and
  4. I do not know about artificial sweeteners. I'm a big fan of honey and cane sugar (they're just tasty!) so I do not have any experience with that. What you could try is removing all sweeteners other than cane sugar from your diet and if you see that your acne is cleared up...slowly add certain ingredients (one at a time) back to your diet and observe the results. For example, if you make your diet as natural as possible and you find your acne is gone...and then you add Splenda back to your d
  5. Did you miss the part where I wrote:"Clearly, this does not apply to everyone. I strongly suggest completely eliminating these from your diet for one month and watch what happens. " ? Let's keep things constructive please.
  6. If I remember correctly, Xanthan Gum is used as a sweetener and/or a thickener. The most popular food I've seen Xanthan Gum in is salad dressing. The last time I looked at the salad dressing at the grocery store EVERY single one had it. I did find a Hidden Valley Dips Ranch packet of spices you use to make your own ranch; however, only one of these ranch packets (there are more than one) was without Xanthan Gum. Barbeque sauce has Xanthan Gum. I've seen it in certain flavors of yogurt. T
  7. Hello everyone, Here are three sweeteners that cause acne: Xanthan Gum (the worst of all), High Fructose Corn Syrup, and Corn Syrup (the lesser of the three). I have carried out experiments with these ingredients and I can turn on and off the acne on my face by either eating or not eating foods that have any of these three ingredients. Xanthan gum will cause large, red zits within two days. High fructose corn syrup is slower to cause acne than xanthan gum and typically only cause
