Can NUTS cause acne???

Ok, all me crazy, but I SWEAR every time I eat nuts, I get a cyst. It the one and only food that I have ever 'noticed' affect my skin. I have tested my theory a few times, and sure enough, within 2-3 days of eating nuts, I get a cyst. Is this just a huge coincidence, or has anyone every heard of nuts causing acne??

Yup, this can definitely be a cause. It can be a reaction to the nuts themselves, or to the salt (iodine) on the nuts. Different foods, despite what derms and magazines say, can trigger acne for different people. My dad swears that whenever he eats cashews, he breaks out the next day. Just pay attention to your body.

Walnuts to that to me. My suggestion? Try different ones on different days and see what happens. When you find the culprit, cut it out of your diet

if the nuts are roasted, and especially if they contain hydrogenated oils..yes, I think so because many people have found relief through the elimination of heated/denatured oils, especially hydrogenated oils.
