Do you think there are certain foods that make you break out in pimples, or is that a myth?
I can't say for certain, but my entire life growing up my mother had extreme acne. She tried many medications from her doctor, but could never get it to go away. She also drank 2L or more of Coca Cola every day.
Years later she decided to stop drinking pop to see if she would lose some weight, and not only did she drop a few pounds, her acne cleared up. It was insane. It was believed that she had incurable cystic acne, and now her face is 95% clear.
Yes, I definitely think there are certain foods that will make you break out in pimples, however there are certain criteria that factors in before that does happen.
1. Your skin type - normal or oily.
2. Hormone levels in the body - as our body acts the same way chemicals do in a acidic or alkaline environment.
3. How much of a certain food you eat.
4. For females a double factor may come into play when it is that time of month and eating certain foods.
Having an allergy test done can also confirm which foods may cause possible break outs.
Hello, thanks for the question. Have you ever heard the expression, " You are what you eat"? This is defintely true. Foods that are high in fat and oils, are more likely to cause acne. On the other hand, you must keep in mind that everyones body is different, some are more prone to acne because of genetics and might have a healthy diet and breakout anyway. I suggest you should try and see what foods you might think are making you break out personally and cut back. There are long lists of foods that are known to cause acne, but I believe that as long as you are not eating these foods excessively you should not have a severe break out when eating them. So remember, try to see how different foods you eat affect your acne, and if you do eat healthy, you will look healthier, becuase "We are what we eat" .
It's a myth. Breaking out in pimples is more to do with hormones and hireditary (your skin type). Even if you had an allergy to some certain foods, it would show up as a rash rather than as pimples.
Yes. White sugar for starters, there are many more too, like the wrong kinds of cooking oils.

This is a subject that I am curious about; however, I don't have any experiences with which to form an opinion. I don't have kids. Any clues as to why a kid will reject a food on sight/smell? Do you coax them? Do you just make that the only food available until hunger...

Do you feel guilty eating certain foods?Catching Tuna is decimating many other species because of the way it is netted. The demand for Palm Oil is everyday destroying more jungle, its plants and animals. Do you check the ingredients of products you use?

Does chocolate make your skin break out?Why is that anyway? And does any other food do that to your skin? For me, it's chocolate and crisps/potato chips and anything deep-fried. But why?
