What to do if I do not eat unhealthy (i.e I hate soda and never eat fast food). I do eat some not so great foods, what foods should I avoid?

My simple "avoid" list: fast food, processed food, saturated fat, high fat, white flour, white rice, sugar. The "do eat" list: whole grains, legumes, nuts, fruits & veggies, lean meats, healthy oils (canola & olive), nonfat dairy. And of course exercise regularly and don't smoke. To your good health! ...Read more
Not diet-related: The claim that eating fast food causes acne is politically correct but actually false. You need to manage your acne until it self-cures which can happen at any age.
