Carbs not fat are generally associated with hair growth. Lots of people go LC and have issues with hair loss. LC is a therapeutic diet, it is not meant to be sustained indefinitely.

I am not Indian, but from observing my Indian-American friends, they have a very high-carb (from vegetables and legumes) and high-sugar diet. I've also observed this at Indian restaurants (and yes, I'm aware that this is Americanized and in... (more)

I have had a weird hair experience on my 5.5 month primal journey, and I am curious if this has happened to anyone else. When I first started, I was trying to do low-carb, aiming for about 50 carbs a day. After about two months, I would start to... (more)

Just speaking from personal experience and living this life (which, in my opinion, is just as important as a doctor's research), after losing 215lbs in a year with VLC paleo, my hair loss absolutely slowed down. It's become part of the entire,... (more)

I'm nervous about this, but I'm fairly certain VLC made my hair fall out. It just goes against everything I know about low carbing to add in starches. I'd like to hear from anyone who made the leap successfully. I have about 30-40 pounds to lose... (more)

I've been using it for many years now, it seems to help quite a bit. I just buy the generic stuff with biotin in it, it's quite cheap. In the shower, wet your hair a little bit, rub in a few drops of the stuff into your scalp and massage it in... (more)

Today I tracked my carbs at 125 and protein at 88 grams. Is this considered low carb/ high protein? Does anyone know what the numbers should be ?

Perhaps you can try eating breakfast first thing in the morning upon rising. Have lunch mid day and then a late-ish dinner. This will spread your three meals out as far apart from one another as possible to allow some appetite to develop between... (more)
