According to the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology, intaking carbohydrates with a high glycemic index may hinder your ability to heal from breakouts and achieve clear, glowing skin. This is in part due to the fact that these types of foods cause blood sugar levels to rise rapidly. The optimal diet for preventing or improving breakouts is to Divide Your Plate In Four. Eat 1/4 protein, 1/4 whole grain complex carbohydrates, and 1/4 each of fruits and vegetables.

The Journal of American Academy of Dermatology also reported in a study that a diet of low glycemic foods (brown rice, vegetables, and whole grain breads) with high protein (chicken and fish) showed an almost 50% overall decrease in pimples after 3 months.

Cherries, oranges, tomatoes, whole grain pastas, peanuts, artichoke, grapefruits, grapes, and squash are examples of foods that help you keep clear skin because of their low glycemic index. For a longer list you can check out .

This diet is not a 100% guarantee for pimple breakouts prevention or elimination, but it is definitely worth trying and following. If you intake too many high glycemic foods, you will greatly be increasing your chances of getting pimples and blemishes. This type of diet also leads to being overweight and increases the chance of the development of diabetes and heart disease.

Increase your chances of clear skin by following the Divide Your Plate in Four diet. Your waistline and your face will surely show the results by helping you look and feel your best.

UPDATE MARCH 2011: Since this post was published in 2008, I’ve had a lot of emails from readers saying that this has worked for them, too – so make sure you give it a go. A few readers have also mentioned that they were able to clear their skin and prevent breakouts following the advice in Alan Logan’s book – The Clear Skin Diet.

You can pick up a copy on Amazon for only $15 which is a small price to pay to eliminate breakouts for good. Hit the green link above or the image below to pick up your copy.
