    Does sugar cause acne

    Does sugar cause you to break out? I heard they said that food does not cause acne but just a myth but does somthing like sugar cause you break out.

    sugar can cause some people to breakout but its not the same for eveyone. To see what foods you're sensitive to you could get a food test at a naturalpath(i think thats how u spell it) or go without sugar for a couple weeks and see what happens.

    Don't believe everything doctors tell you with regards to acne. If you are noticing your breakouts are linked to what you eat then just avoid those foods.

    Re: Does sugar cause acne

    The following causes acne:

    Hydrogenated oils
    cooked/heated/denatured/refined oils
    denatured grain products (cereals)
    refined grain products (white rice, white flour)
    gluten
    dairy (esp casein)
    bad vitamins
    cane sugar (brown sugar, white sugar, etc)
    cooked eggs
    luncheon meats, nonorganic meats or too much cooked meat, especially beef
    drugs (including aspirins, antibiotics, and misc medications), alcohol

    Get rid of all of these and you will be acne free in two months time. If you stick to fruits, (steamed) vegetables (not salads!), raw nuts, and raw seeds, and small amounts of organic meat or sardines you will be acne free after two months.

    Wow, is that true that you can be completely acne-free after two months on this diet? Has this worked for you? I don't eat much junk food and hardly any meat, just fish, and I still get pimples, at the age of 32! I'm so tired of this.

    Also, what are "bad vitamins," if you don't mind explaining?

    Fruits, steamed vegetables, raw nuts, and raw seeds.....that's it? I think it would be important to have a more balanced diet to keep yourself healthy.

    Where's the lack of balance in Prometheus' diet? It's as pure and balanced a diet that you can get. Before I modified my diet to a closer version of that one, I originally thought the same but my overall health has never been better. You will be amazed at how your body will appreciate it and in turn, your skin will show this.

    Re: Does sugar cause acne

    Yes Sophia it really is that simple. It has worked for me, and for many others, some of them post on this board, such as Meagan. You will see that others post on here have cured their acne through diet and all of the diets eliminate what I have posted up there, whether it is the "Wai" diet or a paleolithic diet. Bad vitamins are any vitamins your body can't use, either because they are formulated incorrectly (most multivitamins), they have secondary ingredients that your body doesn't agree with such as casein or lactose or other dairy or gluten bioproducts, or they are synthetic or cheap vitamins. A lot of people get acne simply from taking vitamins and they get rid of their acne simply by not taking them anymore.


    Boston,

    Having acne, for me, meant that I was not healthy. I have no acne now, and excellent blood tests (I get an extensive panel done every year). Eating what they refer to as a "balanced" diet kept me ill. I was generally unwell, and I am much better now eating this way.

    I am going to post a list of vegetables to help you out.

    Re: Does sugar cause acne

    I eliminated sugar, (all sugar except for God made sugar; fruit)
    I also eliminated most carbs. I eat only a little bit of whole grain foods with my dinner. I eat a ton of veggies and protein, I started to clear right away, and now after one month, I'm completley clear and I haven't felt better, or looked better in years.
    I definatley believe everyone, yes everyone, can clear their acne with diet.

    Me too! At least once you've passed the adolescent acne years, definitely diet is the way to go. It's funny, because when I went to my dermatologist for a follow up visit and told her that I was controlling my acne through the paleolithic diet, she said "you know where to find me if you need me". I bet that on the inside she was thinking "darn it, another one figured it out!"
