Muscle-Building Workout and Diet


– Hey, everyone, what is up? Welcome to an acne update. This is a video that I’ve
really been wanting to put out, basically the things that I’ve found that have helped me get rid of my acne and that things that I’ve found have helped me keep away my acne. But before I do that, guys, I do have a small, small
request, a small favor. My best friend in the world
since I was four years old, man, he is in a contest right now, and all I need you to do is
click the link right below. It’s GigTown is what it’s called. It’s like a jingle contest. He wrote a little song
for the radio station. And all I need you guys to do
is just click vote, that’s it. All you gotta do is click the
link, open it up, click vote, and boom, you’re gonna be
my best, best babushka ever. Please do it. Thank you so, so, so much. Okay, let’s talk acne. Now, what’s the number one cause that I’ve found for my acne? Food. Absolutely, unequivocally, 100% food. Now, a real quick, brief summary of who I am and what I’ve come from so you can understand my acne struggles. I’ve had acne since I was 15 years old, and it got progressively worse over the three years of me bulking from when I started lifting at 15 until I got to about 18 or 19. I was eating so many calories
’cause I was trying to grow. I was trying to become a huge bodybuilder, so I ended up bulking
on about four and 1/2 to 6,000 calories every single day, of which about 1,000 and 1/2 would come from milk every single day. Every single day I was
eating dairy and cheese and I was having all this milk. I was having so many whey protein bars and whey protein supplements, basically all this stuff
that was derived from dairy. And I got really bad cysts. I had minimum four cysts
on my face at any time. And you guys probably can relate to this if you had cystic acne. I could count how many. I would always know that
there was at least four, and I could find ’em for you, and I’d be like, look, any day, come up to me and I can
show you these four. So I’ve had acne really
bad my whole entire basically adult life. And I took Accutane for
about a year-long period, a little over a year-long
period, about 70 weeks. Starting about a year and a half ago, I’ve been off of Accutane
now for two months straight. So for the last two months I’ve been really, really
meticulously trying to decide what foods do and do not cause me to have acne and breakouts. That way I can continue to be
clear, or relatively clear. I realize I’m not 100% clear,
but I can be relatively clear even after being off of Accutane and seeing the effects
maybe wear off a bit. I can hopefully clean it up with food, and these are the things that I’ve discovered have helped me. So here are two types of
food that have caused me acne and one type of food that
has actually helped me kind of clear up, I think. Now, number one, you probably
already guessed this, but dairy of any type. Now, I’m not talking just drinking milk. I’m talking milk, cheese,
any sort of whey protein bar, whey flavoring in your chips sometimes, like sour cream and
onion chips are flavored with whey protein powder. Any sort of supplement that uses whey as its source of protein,
and I’m talking any bar ever, any shake ever, any mass gainer ever. They all use whey protein
isolate, concentrate, or they’ll use milk protein,
or they’ll use casein. All of those proteins
are derived from dairy. And for people like me, that causes me to break out really hard. That’s unequivocally,
100% the truth for me. Now, it’s not necessarily
true for everyone. Some people can drink
as milk as they want, they can have as much dairy as they want, and they won’t break out a little bit. But you have to experiment with yourself to see what does and
does not work for you. And for me personally,
dairy within one day, literally 24-hour period,
I’ll have a breakout. And whether it’s bigger or not now, it’s a lot smaller breakouts,
but I will break out. And back in the day, I was just
forcing that down my gullet, and I hadn’t put together
two and two and thought, oh, wow, all this dairy and milk that I’m eating is
causing me to break out. Maybe I should stop doing that. So maybe you should try that. And the second food that caused me to break out,
(chickens cluck) and this one I’ve tested so many times. You can hear my chickens
clucking in the background. But I’ve done this so many times. I’ve tested this so many times, and it pretty much never fails
to cause me to break out, eating processed food. And what I mean by that processed food, I mean, that’s not just
like a Larabar or something that has a bunch of berries
and nuts smashed together. What I’m talking about is if I eat chips, if I eat some chips with a
bunch of flavoring on it, and then I go have a cup
of chicken noodle soup and it’s all dried and sodiumy
and it’s been processed. There’s probably like 25
different ingredients. Any time there’s anything
that has over, I don’t know, like seven ingredients and those ingredients
are crazy long to read and you can tell that some
of them are sodium benzoate and these preservatives and stuff. Any time there’s things like that, anything that’s inside of a
wrapper that crinkles and stuff, things like that, Pop-Tarts
and stuff like that, that breaks me out so hard. So just to make it simple,
milk and dairy products, and then stuff that’s madly
processed and comes in wrappers. So that is two types of food
that cause me to break out. These actually make acne pop up, make whiteheads pop up for me. Now, here’s a type of food that has helped me prevent
acne from popping up, has helped me kind of clear
up and stay relatively clear while I’ve been off of Accutane, and it is as simple as this, and I know a lot of you guys
are gonna hate me for this, eating vegetables. And it gets a little bit more
complicated than just that. But a lot of you guys
have seen me eating vegan. Now, I wouldn’t attribute my being clear, relatively clear, come
on, let’s be honest here. I’m not 100%. I’m not Maybelline or nothing like that, but I’m so much clearer than I used to be. It’s not necessarily me eating
vegan and not eating meats and not eating eggs and stuff like that. Instead, I think it’s more
so to do with the fact that I’m overloading on vegetables. Now, back in the day, my regular diet, I would be eating maybe
one to three servings of vegetables a day, something like that, usually about three servings, two to three, something like that. Now I’m getting probably
about eight to 12, sometimes even more servings
of vegetables a day. And I usually have some in the morning, and then I have just a ton, you guys have seen my
stir-fries, at night. And these vegetables, I believe,
are helping me massively. One, because I’m taking out
all those bad foods and stuff, so my intestines, if there’s
anything called a leaky gut, if that’s a real thing, then my gut, my intestines are able
to start recuperating. But then also instead
of giving them things to toil with them, to
give them tasks, right, instead of forcing more
badness into my intestines while it’s trying to recoup,
I’m giving it all this love. I’m giving it just fluffy, fiber-rich, micronutrient-rich and dense vegetables that are really good for you. And I know how obvious
that seems for some of you, but for other people it
doesn’t even cross your mind. For me, I knew that I
should be eating vegetables. I didn’t attribute that
necessarily to my acne. I was just like, oh, that’s
something that you do so that you don’t die one day and you don’t have hypertension
and you don’t get diabetes. It’s a general good thing for your body. But I did not realize that
after having this overdosage of vegetables every day,
eight to 12 servings, I feel a lot better, but
my face is so much clearer. I have people constantly
coming up and saying, “Your face is looking so clear. “It’s looking creamy,” or
“It’s looking glowing.” And that didn’t happen before when I was just on Accutane
and my face was clearing up. That has recently just happened
in the last about two months while I’ve been eating so many vegetables. And that’s what I attribute it to: eating a lot of vegetables. Now, you can eat whatever
vegetables you want, but I prefer broccoli,
green beans of some sort, some snow peas or sugar peas,
those are great for stir-fry, some carrots, that’s what I’m doing, lots of bean sprouts, lots of cauliflower, and, yeah, those are
generally the ones I have. It’s a little bit of spinach and stuff. But those six go into my
stir-fries over and over and over. I have a stir-fry probably
about five or six times a week, so I believe the vegetables
are really helping me break out a lot less. So if you’re suffering
from acne right now, and maybe you’re debating,
what should I do for my acne? Should I get on Accutane? Should I try this medicine, that medicine? Maybe just try, before
you do any of that stuff, experimenting with your diet. And that’s anything. You can do one step. You don’t have to do all three of those things I was telling you about. You don’t have to take 12 servings of vegetables in right from the start. But maybe just trying using a
little bit less milk products and dairy and a little bit less whey, and then take it all the way out and see if your face is cleared up. And then try drinking
a little bit more water and getting some more vegetables in and see if that helps you clear up. Anything that’s helping you
clear up or stay more clear, just start moving that into your life. Change that into your lifestyle. And very easily, you
just go by steps, right? You start just living your life that way. Like right now I couldn’t care less that I don’t drink dairy or have whey. I mean, it was awesome, and it’s very convenient when you can, but I don’t even have to think about it. I’m just like, oh, yeah,
just don’t get stuff with whey in it. It’s not that big of a deal. Anyways, guys, I hope you do try this out, and I would love to hear
what you guys have to say about what foods and what things that you guys have seen help you clear up and what you think about this if you do try all the three things that I’ve been telling
you about in this video. I love you guys, thank you

100 thoughts on “The Two Worst Acne Foods & the Best Food for Acne

  1. Hey everyone thank you so much for the support on this video! 🙏 Go subscribe to my new ALL acne channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcDbXrS6z1Eu633Ot3nsGgA

    I wanted to pin a post with some answers to the most asked questions! 😁

    My four biggest tips for people who want to make change in their acne are to
    1) REMOVE DAIRY 100% (not even a little tiny slip up)
    2) Eat 8-16 servings of dark green cruciferous veggies
    3) Drink more water (1-2 gallons a day)
    4) Balance your gut flora by ingesting some form of probiotics.

    What protein can I use?
    A lot of people watching my channel are into fitness and consume whey protein, protein bars and products with dairy in them. Whey/casein proteins are concentrated dairy, you need to switch to a plant based protein. The best plant based protein is the raw plant protein from VivoLife (Yes, I'm sponsored because I support them fully – use BRIAN10 for 10% off VivoLife: http://bit.ly/VivoLifeBrian). They do not include preservatives, coloring or fake sugars which are are terrible for you. They also have greens that provide most of your daily vitamins, veggies and even probiotics. I promote them because their products do not break me out and are high quality.

  2. Yeah! Better I started to be "Vegan", and be careful of what that I'm eating. So my acne can reduced my face.😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣😣

  3. A raw, plant based diet is the most natural diet to humans. It's a diet loaded with fresh, hydrating, living, nutrient dense veggies, fruits, legumes, sprouts, nuts & seeds, actually everything that you see when you're out in nature. Bread, pasta, pizza, hot dogs, cereal, concentrated sugar and processed food is not what you find in nature. If you have skin problems, digestive issues or any kind of illness, please try a raw vegan diet for just 3 weeks. Also avoid any kind of chemical stuff on your skin (conventional beauty care products, cleaning products) and replace them with natural ones (jojoba oil, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, baking soda, soap nuts, salt, essential oils etc.) I bet you will feel at your best in just a few months, weeks or even days!!

  4. Just got off accutaine myself a couple weeks ago, was on it for 6mos. It helped some but not as well as I wanted😞 was thinking to start the keto diet, do you think that will help?

  5. Hi Brian! I'm just now finding you but my journey was similar to yours. I had tried nearly every topical thing I could to fix my cystic acne but nothing ever worked. I ended up finding out that the only thing I could eat from a cow was cheese. Also, daily elimination was an issue for me. A little tmi but it matters! Anyway, I found you because my 14 yr old son has progressively been getting more and more acne. We've upped water intake and he hates the "are you pooping?" question, washes his face religiously but I'm starting to suspect that he has the same digestive issues as me. So we are going to cut out the processed stuff with him (he's super sad about cookies) with more veggies and I'm starting him on a probiotic. I know hormonaly men are a bit more steady than women from month to month so I don't have to worry about that so much and I have suggesting having him cut his hair short for a time and not using product for a bit. I did just change him to a clay based pomade though. Do you think that will be better for his skin? It's bentonite. Anything else that I'm missing that you might suggest for a teenage boy?

  6. does pea protein powder causes acne? i stopped taking ON serious mass product because it caused me breakouts so bad..

  7. Thank you Bryan! Great help especially that I am having this breakout right now. I would certainly take your advice. And that’s focusing on FOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! More power to you.😉

  8. I blend my vegetables and drink it, but i read online that its not good to blend them and if i do i have to drink it right away. I make a huge jar of Kale, spinach, cucumber, green apples and celery and drink it during the day. I know juicing takes away the good healthy vitamins from vegetables but i blend mine so im drinking 100% of it. Idk i want you to tell me lol you seem more knowledgeable then me.

  9. I stopped drinking milk 3 years ago, now even if I wanted to drink normal milk I couldn’t, it makes me nauseous

  10. Okay so summary
    – milk and dairy products are a no go to some people. Such as sour cream chips and such
    – Processes foods, such as cup noodles, chips with a high amount of artificial flavoring . Aren't good for your skin because of the chemicals
    -VEGETABLES!: Eat vegetables, for some people this clear your face majorly, also, drink lots of water

  11. Everyone is different, your skin love the new diet, some skin love the coffee, some skin love the proteins, some skin can be as simple as the pillows cover, some transformations happen after moving to new house. And I’m glad you founds what’s good for your skin.

  12. Personally i don't get any acne from eggs BUT from MILK yeah. I can't imagine my breakfast without egg boiled or roasted etc. I love eggs and they work great for me. So listen guys, you should watch how YOUR BODY reacts to different foods and not based on what works for others cause everyone is different really

  13. I've found that dairy in and of itself doesn't make me break out, but cheese because it's actually made with bacteria.

  14. Watching this video helped my acne a lot!
    I didn’t think that changing your diet would help with acne but my skin has been clear for the first time because I changed my diet!! This video helped a lot ‼️💯 THANK YOUU

  15. Instead of drinking milk Drink Almond Milk it gives u ur Vitamin E of the day making ur skin clear and glowy

  16. He is right!! Same thing happened to me..I was braking out really bad and then one day I started eating vegetables and pow!! My acne cleared up and I feel much better..

  17. You are very true man. I have suffered acne for about 10 years and have tried different dermatologies and all kinds of face creams but nothing ever worked. After too many years of research, I realized that food was the main cause of my breakouts. Dairy and white sugar and bananas are the three main foods that will make your skin miserable.
    My recommendations:
    1. Stop anything that has dairy in it
    2. Stop eating white sugar and bananas
    3. Eat a lot of vegetables: broccoli and Kale
    4. Take Cod Liver Oil Supplements
    5. Exercise if you can

    Try the above for about a month and let me know. You will be surprise on how your skin gonna turn out.

  18. You'll be able to get rid of acne permanently, get back your clear skin without drugs, lotions; without worrying about scar problems and side effects. No matter what type of acne you've – with very easy way in which you will never think of, all in a natural way at AcneCureOnline. Com

  19. Mine is carbohydrated,and starchy foods; rice, bread, pasta, ugghhhhh…. I cant. Aftr eating 1 cup if rice a day, ny face would also swell like im allergic to it and the next few days id get 3 acnes.

  20. From where can you have calcium if you don t eat dairy at all?
    I mean I will try this too for my acne but i am afraid with the calcium stuff…

  21. I saw your video a year or more ago and cried like a baby😢. Looking at you today makes my heart smile ☺️☺️☺️☺️ I'm so happy for you❤️❤️❤️❤️

  25. Anybody tried the Fopobiacne Secrets (do a search on google)? We have noticed several awesome things about this popular natural acne treatment.

  26. Does Fopobiacne Secrets really work? I notice lots of people keep on speaking about Fopobiacne Secrets. But I'm not sure if it's good enough to break free from your acne.

  27. If u want another tip that actually cleared up my skin and makes me so glowing is actually a kale smoothie a day no joke I don’t have one white head

  28. Thanks for sharing your experience, dairy products are a major cause of annoying acne, and Triggerty I use facial cleansers with sports, drinking water and lots of skin care products. 🌹🌹🌹

  29. Awesome video. After nearly two decades of suffering from it myself I've found the bottom line of acne and diet to be:

    – The more water you drink
    – The more whole plant foods you eat
    – The less processed/animal foods you eat

    …the clearer your skin will be.

    Limiting dairy and processed food helps. Going vegan helps even more. Going 100% unprocessed vegan is the best thing you can do not only for acne but for a massive multitude of health reasons!

  30. Are you a dermatologist? Because you sound like someone who’s like oh don’t eat these and your acne will disappear with no evidence to back it

  31. Am the same way i breakout alot eating cheese n it taste soooo good but i have to let it go i did it before then i started up again n i started breaking out now am just trying to stop eating dairy products so i can clear up my skin again is hard cuz am always waking up to a new pimple but what can i do nothing… I just have to deal with it…

  32. Am going to try to eat veggies and hopefully I see a change in my acne.. I been getting acne around my chin area. So can’t wait to see results with the change.

  33. #fuckacne – 2 years with acne and i have acne on my back and my chest fucking hate acne like.. damn looking in the mirror im uglg as fuck

  34. It's not necessarily the whey that causes acne in all cases. Often people are allergic to the artificial sweeteners (eg. Sucralose) that are added to the whey powder. Try opt for unflavored & unsweetened versions and see if that helps if you don't want to cut whey out completely.

  35. Its all about eating healthy .zero sugar . Full amount of veggies and intermittent fasting .water .and God bless u
