For the past few months i’ve been doing a lot of research on diet and acne related issues. There seems to be known a concrete causal relationship between the western diet and the formation of acne. Specifically the glycemic index/load of food we eat.
In societies that eat strictly low glycemic foods, 0 cases of acne are found, even in teens. Low carb diets would indirectly be low glycemic as well, like keto. Paleo diet would also be low glycemic.
My inquiry now is, how would these dietary cures for acne translate to exogenous hormone/anabolic steroid use? There is a book called The Dietary Cure for acne by Loren Cordain, which addresses everything crom insulin, IGF-1, SHBG, and its relation to acne and the formation of skin issues.
If anyone has any experience with using anabolic steroids while maintaining a low glycemic diet or low carb/keto/paleo diet, feel free to share your information with me! For those struggling, do some research, you will be astounded.
