I'll Be an Experiment for the Hair Loss Diet

by Austin

I'm a 26 year old male with typical male pattern baldness. I'm typing this from my phone, so please excuse any typos.

How does this diet sound? For the sake of time, I'm just going to list what I will be eating daily instead of breaking it into meals.

Two shakes a day containing (total for both): 6 medium eggs, 1 scoop of flavorless, all natural whey protein, and 1 cup of cooked kidney beans.

2 cans of pacific caught sardines in water and another 2 cups of cooked kidney beans.

3 veg shakes consisting of 1 cup of kale, 1 cup of spinach, 1 cup of Italian cut green beans, 1 cup purple cabbage, and a few cloves of broccoli.


Borage oil
Stinging nettle extract
Saw palmetto extract

I'm willing to be an experiment and adhere to this diet for a full year, taking monthly pictures, and reporting changes as I notice them.

As far as i can tell, the diet is solid as a rock. Let me know what ya think!

Please Submit Pictures

Hello Austin,

I'm absolutely delighted that you want to participate as an experiment to the diet.
You're going to need to submit at least five photographs. I need a side shot of the left and right sides of your head, the back of your head, and the front view of your head.

When you come back to submit your pictures, you're going to have to start a brand new thread. You can't submit pictures in the comments section. Once you do submit the pictures, I will combine the posts.

This post will be yours alone, and your story will be told from beginning to end. Other people will comment on your progress along the way.

We will keep very close track of your hair. Also, keep very careful track of your food intake. If there are any errors, we need to catch them early.

Please note that although juicing vegetables is permitted, it's always best to eat them whole whenever possible. Your diet contains the right compounds to regrow your hair.

I can't wait to hear from you regarding your progress. I'm looking forward to your success. You can do this!

Excellent! I'll get some pictures posted tonight when I'm back home!

Sorry if I was unclear; my shakes are just blended in a ninja blender with cold water. They are pretty much liquified, but I throw them in whole and consume the food item in its entirety.

My Hair Loss Photos.

by Austin

Alright, I'm on my desktop and can really type some stuff out now. My hair loss started about six years ago and has been going steady ever since. I lose a TON of hair in the shower, it seems. I, also, have very coarse, thick hair, which used to annoy me, but now is my only saving grace. The thickness of my hair can be used to conceal the ever receding hairline with the use of a bandana. I'm sure I'm not fooling anyone, but being confident about this problem is not something I've yet learned to deal with. I'm ready to go all-in and, hopefully, say goodbye to the damage I've done, which I now see to be quite extensive.

Nothing like pictures to bring you down a notch or two.

I understand the severity of my hair loss... I fear I may honestly be too late...

On a side note, I've been wondering something since it started falling out. As you can tell, I have red hair. Once my hair started falling out, I noticed that the hair would return either completely black, or at least be composed of 1/4-1/2 black color. I mean JET black; almost blue. Not sure if there is any correlation there.

I've heard of people with vitamin deficiencies having strange, alternate colors to their hair, but couldn't find anything definitive.

Never Too Late!
by: Sheree

Hi Austin,

I meant to say whole vegetables eaten in their raw form. I've always had a very strong feeling that whole and raw vegetables are best. However, many visitors prefer to puree their vegetables.

I compromised and came up with one serving of pureed vegetables, and at least one complete serving of natural, unprocessed whole vegetables. I hope that makes sense.

These photos are just beautiful. Thank you for taking the time to submit these pictures.

I've seen breathtaking hair loss reversals here. The people that succeeded believed in themselves, and carried it all the way through.

In the face of worry, doubt, terror, being told that it's not possible, and other interfering factors, they pulled themselves up and took it all the way down the line. You will too!

You are the captain of your own ship. You are the conductor. You get to decide what happens and how far you'll take this. In other words, it's your holodeck.

I believe in this, and I believe in you.

To your success!

Hang in there!

Hey Austin,

Wow I really liked how convicted you sounded in your post! Also, like you, I used to HATE my coarse hair, but now it's my saving grace as it gives my thinning hair semblance of life and cover for my scalp.

How's it been going since May? I'm about a month into my no-sugar, tons-of-veg, somewhat gluten-free diet. I can't comment much on changes in my hair yet. Sometimes it really feels healthier and other times, like recently, I still lose hair crazily. BUT maybe that could be related to how I've been under more stress at work and have been getting by some days with 3-4 hours of sleep... Oh well.

Anyway, I do hope that you've been persevering and who knows, you may also crack the mystery of the hair-colour change! Hope to hear from ya, and wishing u great health(y hair) :)

(& hi, Sheree! Thanks for the info & motivation!)

Keep it up, it works!
by: Bailey

To my understanding, juicing things is not good because it changes the structure of what is being juiced, therefore something low-glycemic like spinach, becomes high-glycemic when juiced. What I did to balance this (because I really enjoyed smoothies) was to add an organic protein powder (I like Dr. Ben Kim's Raw Organic Protein Powder) with my strawberries, blueberries, banana, coconut milk and ice. This will counteract it, as when you add butter (a protein) to a potato (which is high-glycemic) it neutralizes it.

On a side note, do NOT, repeat, DO NOT use whey-protein. There is a direct link to hair loss in men and whey protein powders. It's best to stay away from that.

Stopping sugar was what made the biggest impact. Definitely started seeing changes within DAYS just by not eating sugar. I know everyone is different so don't expect it, or DO, I mean your mind has such a big influence over your body.

I recommend massaging your scalp with rosemary essential oil at least once a day for 10 minutes, and wash your hair with Dr. Bronner's, or something similar. Dr. D's does not contain lauryth-sulfate, the agent in most shampoos that creates the suds, which in turn is related to hair loss.

To help digestion and to alkalanize your body, take a tablespoon of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar twice daily with water. It too can be used with the rosemary oil to massage your scalp.

Your mind has such a BIG influence over the results of anything, so for you to be successful with the diet and also to be able to stick with it, you need to get ya mind right. The best way to do this is become 100% sure this will work. It WILL. Forget those bad thoughts of failure. If you follow it WILL work on you.

Next, reverse your old thought pattern. Before when you'd look in the mirror, you'd go "Shit! Look at my hair. Why oh whhhhyyyeeeeeeeeeeeee!?!?"
Now when you look in the mirror, you can literally go "I'm glad my hair doesn't look like that anymore*, I'm so stoked to see it fully thick again." And let yourself FEEL those good feelings.

* Because when you are viewing it in the mirror, you are viewing the past, because the things you have been doing yesterday are creating your future. That brief moment you look in the mirror and have a judgment about what you see is already the past by the time you've made it, so make sure your judgments serve you, and thus your future!
