    Default fasted training

    Hi everyone,
    Ive been wondering if fasted training (weight lifting and calisthenics) would speed up hair loss?
    Im not well educated about anything like this, i only know that stresses both physically and mentally can cause hair loss.
    in the past ive used it to get really lean whilst maintaining muscle mass, plus i find my workouts are better fasted, more focused, lighter etc.

    Any thoughts?

    (Im currently on propecia, been on it for just over a week now, no sides to report)

    I believe that fasted training or just weightlifting and exercising in general do not have much an affect on hair loss and as far as I know there are no studies that prove a relationship between heavy exercising and hair loss.

    What might be true on the other hand is that bald guys are easier to be fund in the gym because they want to compensate their baldness. A bald guy with a ton of muscles just looks like pure testosterone... there is almost a stereotype about bald guys or balding guys.

    There are perhaps some people here in the forum that will disagree with me so you should read their opinions on this matter as well.

    My understanding from when I read up on it a while ago was that the stress on the body and lack of nutrients hurt hair growth. Now, starting fasting training straight out of the gate is not the smart way to go You need to eat to lose weight, just eating cleaner and smaller portions with more times throughout the day as a start. Then you can make the transition to fasting training which definitely brings results IF done properly.

    Fasted training is actually fine. There are many people in ridiculously good shape who adopt this approach. Terry Crews and Hugh Jackman being two of them. I do it, too, although I'm some way off being like TC or HJ. Fasting for, say, 16 hours (between 10pm and 2pm) gives your body a chance to completely empty itself. Not only will you feel much lighter and energised, it increases your body's insulin sensitivity and makes your body far more efficient at absorbing nutrients from your food. Just don't go having a big McDonalds as your first meal. Consume the same number of calories you would do usually, just in that 8 hour period.

    Since I started intermittent fasting and training (specifically calisthenics) I've never felt better.
