As of lately, I've been breaking out on my face and neck (I'm prone) leading people to believe I'm taking steroids. Of course, this is causing me a great deal of frustration and social pain. I went over my diet and lifestyle (stress, sleep, etc) with a fine tooth brush to figure out what might be causing the problem and my only suspicion is the grass-fed meat I have in the freezer. Took it out today and noticed what looked like mold/bacteria inside it. Not very obvious though. Although my wife insists that I see the doc and get antibiotics (which I kindly refuse to do), I'm sure it has something to do with a food (or lack of) in my diet.

Any suggestions or experiences you can share?

Thanks Mike....neither sugar nor dairy have a place in my diet. Both feed yeast and cause large insulin spikes so avoid the two like the plague. The only sugar in my diet comes from fruit (seasonally) and the only dairy comes from a small splash of heavy creamer in my coffee (occasional use when not using coconut milk). Actually looking back the only change in my diet in the last 3 weeks was adding a stronger pro biotic (Dr. G's) to the mix. Maybe it needs time to balance itself out.

Yeah maybe, might try eliminating sat fat all together for at least 2 weeks reintroduce it and see what happens. This would be devastating if in fact it turns out sat fat causes me to break out. I just love steak and grass-fed meat.

As a lifelong sufferor of acne (and my Mom still gets it at age 75), I would say you can, in the short term, get some good topical treatments from a dermatologist. There are many things that provoke it in me, including a change in exercise patterns, lack of sleep, stress, certain foods, etc. I'm sure others (Garrett, etc.) will have great advice on avoiding it but if it's a near term concern, try the topical stuff.
