*Beans (dried and fresh)
Fish and Shellfish
*Oatmeal (regular, not instant)
*These are foods that are especially good for your acne.
Foods that are bad for your acne:
Flour (white and wheat)
Hard cheese (except Romano and Parmesan)
Ice cream, frozen yogurt, Italian ice, sherbert
Jam, jelly, preserves
Sugar (white and brown)
As for a whole meal plan you should just try to make one out of these foods. One thing you have to keep in mind is that if you do eat some sort of sugar (even natural sugar from fruit), you should also eat some sort of protein (meat, nuts, beans) with it so that you keep your sugar level down. If you have just sugar is will raise your sugar level, which causes acne. Also if you have to have chocolate, dark chocolate is much better than plain. If you have any other questions just ask.

Thats a good list but I do dissagree with rice, obviously everything cannot be included so use common sense, ie, I can't think of a fruit/vegetable that isn't good for you. I have no problems with brown rice at all.
+Can't see why mango is bad either, or peas especially since kidney beans are on the "good" list. Note :- for strick paleo diet no legumes are allowed, something to do with the 'evil' protein and sugar mix that passes through the gut and fools the immune system into attacking its own cells.
I'm sorry, but I think this post is nonsense. I have read over and over and over again, plus heard from 2 different derms that food does NOT cause acne. This is an "old wive's tale" and very outdated information.
A pimple takes from 5 to 7 weeks from formation to come to the surface, so how can something you eat for dinner one night cause a breakout the next day?
Common sense and basic sound nutrition guidelines should guide you in your eating...not this crap.
