  • This is a great article. I agree with everything but I did want to point out that I believe the thought that acne is caused by anything in one's diet has been refuted--it even says that in the the article link connected to the word "acne". Food gets a bad rap when speaking about acne but the current thinking is that sweets, chocolate and fatty foods have very little to do with it. Mostly issues with hormones although excess androgens are linked metabolically to insulin resistance and glucose mishandling such as in polycytic ovarian disease which also has acne as a feature. I would be willing to be countered with a good journal study that says otherwise but needless to say, I try to avoid all those types of foods for other reasons! Except for dark chocolate! lol! - 11/20/2009 7:49:08 AM
  • Very interesting article. I like the general information you give and the chart is really useful. Have printed it out and wll leave it on the kitchen notice board. Another great item from Spark. - 11/20/2009 6:02:09 AM

    My daughter has been eating what I have been preparing which is a lot of salmon and we eat a lot of blueberries. She had a lot of whiteheads and skin issues and I noticed the other day that her face is clearing up. I didn't really think about food helping her face which is great!! - 9/28/2009 5:52:45 PM
  • I'm a newly registered dietitian, and I have also suffered from acne for most of my life. I have searched and searched for any substantiated food-acne associations and only find that claims against specific foods, like concentrated sweets, are only myths. I would love to see research to back this up. - 5/25/2009 1:01:54 AM
  • It's encouraging to know that I am already eating a lot of food on this list. Even before joining SparkPeople, I loved all berries, yogurt, nuts, seeds, salmon, and sardines to name a few. The article must be true because my skin is as unlined and clear as it was 30 years ago. Thanks for the article because I can see areas where I can make an improvement.

  • Very nice article. I think we sometimes "fixate" on the fats in our diet and forget the importance of other foods. I would love to have seen a MDR column to complete the article.
