Starting the Diet Gave Me Beautiful Skin
Hi Sheree, first of all, I want to thank you for what you are doing. Not only are you offering a genuine solution to hair loss, but you're supporting us every step of the way. It's amazing.
I'm a 23 year old female. My hair loss started at 22. After all my research into hair loss, I have put it down to the following things:
Being on a high androgen index contraceptive pill since 17 (which I am now off)
Eating a high sugar but calorie restricting diet, eating one meal a day and snacking on sweets, crisps and chocolate to keep me going.
Large amounts of stress and anxiety with illnesses/constantly being run down.
I found your website 3 weeks ago and have been making a real effort to follow all your advice. I've completely transformed my diet, cut out all sugar and I am now eating proper meals and portion sizes.
I know the diet is very beneficial for weight loss, but I've actually managed to gain weight which is really great for me because I've always been underweight and never been able to put it on healthily. I have put on nearly 3kg since starting this diet and I feel so much better. The weight has gone on evenly and I feel a lot stronger.
I would really love your guidance because I still feel at times like it's not going to work for me even though I know it makes scientific sense that it will. I guess it's because when you start losing your hair, so many people tell you there's nothing you can do about it.
My current diet is as follows:
Fish at least 4 times a week, (sardines, mackerel, rainbow trout, cod, salmon.
Homemade vegetable soups with plenty of green vegetables or red peppers and tomatoes.
Salads with watercress, spinach and rocket with avocado, turkey, carrot, red cabbage and mixed seeds and nuts, 7 - 10 portions of fruit and vegetables a day, including blueberries, kale, cabbage.
Since eating like this, my mood has completely changed. No more crying and anxiety! I also have acupuncture once a week.
Sorry for such a long post!! I do have a couple of questions which I would be so grateful if you could answer. Is it acceptable to eat grains in a muesli if it also has plenty of nuts and oats with it? Also rye bread which has no added sugar. Is this okay or should I just eliminate it too?
Thank you so much Sheree. I'm really looking forward to starting this journey to hair growth.
