Did anyone else's hair fall out??
My poor hair fell out in TONS 3 months after starting this 2 years ago!So much so,that I had to buy hair extentions..$600 for them, then $125 every 6 weeks to get them re-tightened!It took 2 years for my hair to grow back,but thankfully it did,lol!Just wondering if anyone here is or has experienced this!Aside from that,its an amazing diet and I'd do it all over again!:)Thanks for reading,and have a nice day!:)

I haven't had any hair loss but I also haven't been doing it that long. but I have a friend that lost tons of hair doing something similar to stillmans, I think because he was taking in so few calories.

but I don't know

I did strict Stillmans a few years back and never had a problem with any hair loss. The only time that happened was after I had my first baby. But never with any WOE.

I've wondered about possible hair loss on a plan like this so I'm going to go in bursts mixed with low carb high fat eating which works well for me but I don't lose as fast. Sorry to hear about your hair loss OP but as you said the hair did grow back and I'm sure your health is better for having gotten rid of the excess weight.

Actually hair loss has to do with quick losses, no matter which diet. I think there is some biotin supplement that you can take to help with it, but it happens on any diet where there is rapid weight loss (or should say, it can happen with any diet) does not happen to everyone though.

Are you taking vitamins? I'm taking a prenatal and have no hair loss.
