Acne Food Question - Is This OK To Eat, PLEASE Help

I'm getting very stuck for Breakfast, I just recently bought 2 products and I thought I would ask and see if it's fine to eat, Sweetjade, Promtheus, please help if you can

First of "Rice Milk Vanilla Flavoured" Would this be fine to drink?

1st breakfast product - "Wheat/Gluten Free Porridge"
Ingredients: Rice Flakes, Millet Flakes, Thickening Agent: Guyar Gum"

2nd Breakfast Product - "Organic Puffed Rice Cereal - Puffed Wholegrain Brown Rice"
Ingredients: 100% Organically Grown Wholegrain Brown Rice

Any feedback, please!

Also is it ok to eat Red Meat if it's organic?

What type of meat is fine to eat?

Re: Acne Food Question - Is This OK To Eat, PLEASE Help

This is going to be my answer to any acne food related question. If it is not on this list, eat it. Whenever I make this list I inevitably forget one item..that is why there are many lists floating around this board...so I am going to be extra careful this time not to forget anything and this will be my answer to any acne food related question:

Avoid:

Hydrogenated/heated/refined oils
All dairy
cane sugar, artificial flavors, sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup
gluten
refined/denatured grains
alcohol
medications such as aspirins, antibiotics, and birth control
nonorganic meats, such as farm raised fish, and processed meats such as luncheon meats. Avoid pork, beef, and cooked eggs.
bad vitamins and fortified/enriched foods

You can handle the rest.

Re: Acne Food Question - Is This OK To Eat, PLEASE Help

Prometheus: I have been meaning to ask you, what doesn't fall into the gluten/refined grains category? For example, oats have gluten in them, don't they? What about quinoa, spelt, and brown rice? Are they denatured grains? I always wondered about that part.

Thanks!

Re: Acne Food Question - Is This OK To Eat, PLEASE Help

Hi Legend. Just out of curiosity, how do you know it's the lamb breaking you out vs. the bacon/sausage? Are your breakouts immediate, or do they come a few days later? Thanks!

Re: Acne Food Question - Is This OK To Eat, PLEASE Help

I'd say that those things are fine to eat. cutting out all grains is pretty unrealistic. I find sometimes I need to eat something with a little bit of "substance." I eat spelt pretzels, organic wheat free cereals, spelt bread, quinoa pasta, brown rice...and I don't seem to have a problem. I say give it a shot!

Questions:
I was wondering if anyone knew WHY these foods are "bad" to eat (concerning the skin)...
RAW non salted cashews
boiled organic eggs

Indy Girl

I had Bacon and Sausages twice, Friday morning and Saturday morning, didn't break out

I had Lamb Sunday, broke out on Monday around my chin area, right hand side

So It's hard to tell actually

The reason I was asking is because my breakouts take 3 days to show up after eating the food that caused it. That is why it took me so long to realize which foods were really affecting me, because it wasn't the most recent thing I ate. Like in your case, if I were to eat bacon and sausage on Friday morning, on Monday I would be sporting a new cyst.

I doubt everybody works the same way, but I just wanted to mention it because it gives you something to think about. Maybe the lamb really isn't the culprit after all?

Re: Acne Food Question - Is This OK To Eat, PLEASE Help

it could be if it isn't organic. If the animal isn't fed a natural diet, and is given things to help it grow, stuff ends up in the meat that you need to avoid in order to have clear skin. I can tell you why the foods are bad for you..because if you get rid of them, you get rid of acne.

brown rice is fine, Indy..so is quinoa. A lot of grains do not have gluten in them, and if they are prepared correctly, do not give a person acne and do not need to be omitted...while they, arguably, might not be the most nutritious of foods.

It's not that it is boring, Legend. Besides, sometimes it is necessary as I forget to include things in the list, such as "high fructose corn syrup"..though I think it is just common sense at that point.

Re: Acne Food Question - Is This OK To Eat, PLEASE Help

Prometheus: What about vegetarian sushi? I ask because it is made with white rice. I have come to realize that there are no restaurants around here that are okay to eat at. But I was wondering about Japanese? And have you mentioned soy products that I missed somewhere?

Thanks!

When eating Chicken, does it HAVE to be Organic

What type of Chicken do you look for

Most Organic foods/meats are so expensive here in the UK

Excuse my ignorance Prometheus

What is Enriched/Fortified Foods?

I just bought some Fresh Fish today, It wouldn't be farm raised would it?
