Good Sugar + Acne

Hello Everyone,

I'd like to talk about fruit and acne. During the raw challenge in January, it was my first time putting 8-10 bananas in a smoothie and 10-20 dates in a smoothie and my skin broke out terribly. Now is this something that'll pass given I haven't eaten that quantity of fruit before and my body needs to adjust to the level or is there an issue with my skin?

Let me know if you've experienced this or if there's a thread already speaking of these issues.

Thank you,

  • I noticed my skin looks best when I have fruit+veg smoothies. Fruit for carbs and vegetables for a giant injection of vitamins and minerals. And I agree with snow pea! Lots of variables¬†

  • I am on a high fruit diet.. hasn't cleared yet :-(

  • I got less pimples switching to a plantbased diet from a "paleo" trend style diet, i got more pimples switching from a standard diet to a "paleo" trend style diet (worse I had in my life and this was a long time ago). For me there's the least amount of pimples on a fruit based diet, and close to no pimples when other factors are satifsief too. other factors such as sleep, humidity, temp, hygine, sun exposure, excercise (sweating) have an impact on pimples. Diet is amajor factor but theres others too.
