    Foods that are good for your acne:

    *Almonds
    Apples
    *Beans (dried and fresh)
    *Berries
    Brazil nuts
    Broccoli
    Celery
    Cherries
    *Chicken
    Cucumbers
    Fish and Shellfish
    *Flaxseed
    Hazelnuts
    Kidney beans
    Macadamia nuts
    Mushrooms
    *Oatmeal (regular, not instant)
    Oats
    *Olive Oil
    Pears
    Pecans
    Pumpkin seeds
    *Romaine lettuce
    *Salmon
    Sunflower seeds
    Tomatoes
    *Turkey
    *Yogurt (non-fat)
    *Tea

    *These are foods that are especially good for your acne.


    Foods that are bad for your acne:

    Bagels
    Bananas
    Breads, rolls
    Cake
    Candy
    Cereals
    Cookies
    Corn
    Cornbread
    Cornstarch
    Crackers
    Cream cheese
    Croissants
    Doughnuts
    Dried fruits
    Egg rolls
    Flour (white and wheat)
    French fries
    Fried foods
    Fruit juices
    Granola
    Hard cheese (except Romano and Parmesan)
    Honey
    Hot dogs
    Ice cream, frozen yogurt, Italian ice, sherbert
    Jam, jelly, preserves
    Mango
    Margarine
    Milk
    Molasses
    Muffins
    Noodles
    Pancakes
    Papaya
    Pasta
    Pastry
    Peas
    Pie
    Pita Bread
    Pizza
    Popcorn
    Potatoes
    Pudding
    Relish
    Rice
    Snake foods
    Soda
    Sugar (white and brown)
    Tacos
    Tortillas
    Waffles

    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.

    Why are peas bad for you?

    I eat frozen peas and sometimes fresh ones out of the pod. Why are they bad?

    Re: What foods don't cause acne??

    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.

    Milk chocolate has a LOT of sugar and milk solids whereas dark has mainly cocoa and its the SUGAR that may cause acne NOT the cocoa.

    The other day I bought a 100% chocolate bar just to see what it tasted like and it really made me see just how much sugar they add to make a chocolate bar.

    If you eat a little of the 85% cocoa variety its actually GOOD for you because it is high in anti oxidants (and i think iron or magnesium)

    Not bad, but too much of anything is bad and its easy to overconsume when you're drinking something.

    Pomegranite juice is suposed to be the BEST for your skin as its so high in antioxidants (higher than green tea or any other juice)

    They're the size of sesame seeds (a little bigger maybe) but flat and dark brown and contain an amazingly high level of omega 3.

    I consume mine in the form of a mix of cold pressed oils such as flax, borage and evening primrose with omegas 3, 6, & 9 (Called 'The Total EFA' brand: Health From the Sun)

    I also use ground flax seeds to add to my oatmeal - you can also bake with it.

    It is also very high in fiber. just a 1/4 cup is half your daily fibre requirement.

    Yea dark chocolate has more pure chocolate and less sugar, that’s why it’s better. All chocolate is not the best, but if you’re addicted to chocolate, eating dark chocolate is much better for you.

    As for peas, they’re on the bad list because they are high in sugar. Same reason bananas are on there.

    As for fruit juices, unless they’re pure, they’re not good for you.

    And I don't think that any rice is good for you.

    Re: What foods don't cause acne??

    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.
