Not Sure if the Diet is Working?

by Mark

Hi,


I went on this diet in the beginning of May. I got the ebook and video and tried to learn as much as possible. I must admit that I did not incorporate all suggested foods because I am a bit of a picky eater.

I don't really eat fish so no salmon and I don't eat avocados. I found that nuts were a bit dry for my digestion too. Also I eat white potatoes a lot and I know you say to stay away from them. I also eat a fair bit of red meat because my diet is limited. So I didn't follow the diet exactly but I did cut out all gluten and sugar and processed foods.

It's hard to know what's going on with my hair. I can't tell if it's getting better, staying the same, or getting worse.

In different lighting it can look very different. When I am in very top lit bathroom and look closely in a mirror, I can see through the hair which scares me, but normally it looks ok.

I'm just wondering, after this much time and not sure if there are any clear improvements, what should I make of this situation?

Thanks

Hair Loss Diet Improvement or Not?
by: Sheree

Hi Mark,

The hair loss diet works very slowly. Even for the people who've been successful, it took an average of about two and a half years.

As of this date, you've been on the diet for approximately five months. In this time, you should have seen hair growth. However, it's very hard to tell unless you take progress pictures.

Some of our guests were shocked when they saw a picture of themselves just a month earlier, but they didn't notice the hair growth in the mirror. When you're looking at your hair every day in the mirror, and evaluating your progress this way, it's going to be hard to tell.

It's important to cut back on red meat. We don't eliminate it, we just regulate it. Once or twice per week, at the most.

It sounds like you're cutting out nutrient dense foods. Avocado is listed on our super foods page, and will help thicken your hair and give it sheen. Vegetables like leeks, kale and our vegetable salads are critical to this diet.

I'm not sure if I've ever told anyone this, but I really dislike fish. The only recipe that I'm crazy about that has fish is our salmon patties recipe. Other than that, I choke it down. I've never liked fish. I eat it for its medicinal properties. Wild caught sockeye salmon is a very nutrient-dense hair growth food. Even if you don't like it, choke it down, close your eyes, and imagine thick, fast growing hair.

Nuts are another nutrient-rich hair growth food that you're avoiding. If you have trouble with one type of nuts, try another type until you find the type you like. Seeds are very important for hair growth, in particular pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

Eat loads of vegetables. Remember, vegetables turn off the hair loss gene, and protein builds the hair. Protein and vegetables work synergistically to promote lush, thick, fast growing hair. I know that picky eaters may not like the idea of vegetables, but without them, the diet won't work.

Make these subtle adjustments, and keep going forward with blind faith. The hair loss diet is slow for most of us. Mine took a year and a half, and I only had temple balding. People with more advanced hair loss take much longer, even up to three years.

You can't rush mother nature. She is slow, methodical and sure. Nothing that I have ever seen has worked like this diet. Stick this out, because the dividends will pay off for you.

Here are some links to some of the pages I mentioned.

Good luck, and write us when you see new hair!

Hair dryer or no hair dryer?
by: Sheree

Hi Ted,

You can use a hair dryer, but be careful about what type you're using. If you use a comb attachment, it can rip your hair out.

Try to allow your hair to air dry, and that will keep your hair supple and strong.

Love

Dry Chicken

Dry chicken will not hurt your hair. You can cook it as much as you like. I love my chicken well done, and I've never had a problem.

Good luck to you!

External Factors That Cause Hair Loss
by: Sheree

Hi Ted,

Yes, there are external factors that can cause hair loss, and smoking is definitely one of them.

I did some research a while back that linked summer with faster hair growth and winter with slowed hair growth. So yes, there are other outside factors can can radically influence the rate of hair growth, and cause hair loss.
