I have started going to the gym these days and my trainer has advised to eat boiled eggs for protein. Since I am going to gym and eating eggs(2-4 a day) , I am experiencing greater acne on my face because of which I am restricting my eggs which I really dont want; can anyone please help?

I get major acne with eggs. I'm on autoimmune paleo, and it cured my acne. Per my naturopath, egg white and chicken have the same protein- So avoid both if you really want to do a true food trial. It works for me- Beef, pork, coconut and veggies. :-) Acne is cured!

I deffo think eggs effect my acne, not when I was a kid...but now. I dunno...maybe the eggs these days are different...lol!

I dont see how eggs could cause acne unless you are allergic or have an intolerance, certainly if its only 2 to 4. I know its common to break out when you work out if youre unable to shower off the sweat soon after. I would bet on that if the acne is a recent thing and those are the only 2 things changed. You could always eat other protein sources instead and see if it improves.
