It might slow it down a bit, I just don't believe that food will do it alone, if so there would be no balding top athletes...
I can honestly say that I haven't eaten any fast food or boxed foods for the past 3 years. My diet consists of fish, various vegestables, chicken/turkey and almonds and fruits and I do cross fit 3-4 times a week. Am I missing something in my diet to make this work?
Bonus info: My hair loss is somewhere between NW2 and NW3.
When I first started my page, I was only going to gear it towards women. About six months into my research, I started reading about men who were able to reverse their hair loss as well. I cannot leave men out if there is a chance that it will work.
If I could change the title to my website, I would change it to Hair Loss Diet to Thicken Hair, or something like that. The title is actually composed of keywords.
Many people have a gluten sensitivity. I don't know if you eat grains, but that could be a clue. Most of the time, though, the intolerance to gluten causes alopecia areata/totalis.
Your diet is excellent. One thing though. You have to eat the kind of vegetables that most people avoid. Go very heavy on kale, spinach, leeks and bok choy. 50% vegetables per day in volume.
I am in communication with a young 23-year-old male who stopped shedding when he stopped junk food. His breakfast consisted of Captain Crunch, his lunch was the same, and his dinner was McDoland's. He started thinning in his late teens. He is so stressed about his hair loss, he has never worked.
For men, Cholorophyll, Saw Palmetto, and Zinc are top notch. And then wait and see what happens.
