Since I do quite a bit of modeling work, acne doesn't bode well when trying to get the job.
Is there anything I can eat for breakfast thats going to give m the same amount of protein as the eggs?
Will I be somehow at a disadvantage if I don't eat them?
In theory, there is no one food you must eat, remember some people are allergic and won't be able to eat them, which means that it stands to reason, that you don't have to.
- Lifting itself can cause increases in test levels which in turn can cause acne as well.
- Carbs are also known to cause acne.
- Sweat can cause acne.
- Oils/fats (milk) can cause acne.
...etc...the list is endless, to find out whether the eggs are causing it, eliminate them for a while and see what happens, then you'll know, but make sure you don't alter two items at once otherwise you may not get an accurate result. If they are the problem, it may be that you need to introduce them slowly, that can work, instead of a massive increase of a food to the system.
