Very Low Calorie Ketogenic Diets: Preventing Hair Loss

Very Low Calorie Ketogenic Diets: Preventing Hair Loss

My Experiences with Hair Loss on a Very Low Calorie Ketogenic Diet Back in 2008 I joined a slimming club called Lighterlife, this required me to just consume about 500 calories per day. The food was a combination of soups and shakes that came in packets and were made up with water. The weight loss as you can imagine was rapid and to be quite honest very easy, as you didn’t feel hungry because I was in ketosis most of the time. I lost in total about 4 1/2 stone. There was however one unfortunate side effect which was hair loss. I noticed that a lot of hair would fall out when I had a shower and washed my hair. To be fair to Lighterlife this was a side effect that we were all told about, so it wasn’t a big surprise. Once I finished the diet and started to eat normally again my hair grew back quickly and thickly. My top tips for preventing hair loss is not to follow a very low calorie diet, avoid stress and eat well. Preventing hair loss may seem to be an overwhelming and impossible task. Many people perceive this problem to be one of the natural consequences of aging, but for those who suffer hair loss early in life this doesn’t ring true. They naturally ask “why me?” Thinning and receding hair can be a natural part of growing older, but aging is not the only cause. Although we cannot (so far) prevent the aging process there are many other contributing factors over which we do have some degree of control. It is possible to prevent or delay hair loss in many instances. There are different reasons apart from the aging process as to why a person may be losing their hair. Some of the most common reasons include: poor diet, too much stress, medical problems, fluctuating hormones and hereditary factors. In order to prevent and control hair loss, the first step is to f Continue reading >>

A Beginner’s Guide To The Ketogenic Diet: An Effective Way Of Optimizing Your Health

A Beginner’s Guide To The Ketogenic Diet: An Effective Way Of Optimizing Your Health

Many Americans suffer from various chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity, and the main culprit is usually the food they eat. The standard American diet contains excessive amounts of protein and carbohydrates, neither of which is good for your health because it eventually causes you to develop insulin and leptin resistance. As a result, you gain excess weight, develop inflammation and become prone to cellular damage. To avoid this problem, significant changes in your diet are necessary, and the best way is inducing your body into a state of nutritional ketosis, a condition where your body burns fat as its primary fuel instead of sugar. In order to reach nutritional ketosis, you must follow a ketogenic diet. But what exactly is a ketogenic diet? This guide will tell you everything you need to know about a ketogenic diet – how you can apply it to your lifestyle and what positives you can reap from it. The Various Benefits of the Ketogenic Diet A ketogenic diet is a dietary approach that focuses on minimal carbohydrates, moderate amounts of protein and high healthy fat consumption — the three keys to achieving nutritional ketosis. In fact, it’s what I recommend for most people who would like to optimize their health. There are many reasons why you should try a ketogenic diet. It can be very beneficial for people suffering from chronic conditions, or for people who would simply like to be healthier than their current state. You’ll be excited to know that a ketogenic diet can help with the following: • Weight loss If you’re trying to lose weight, then a ketogenic diet is one of the best ways to do it, because it helps access your body fat so that it can be shed. Obese people in particular can benefit from this method. In one study, obese test subjects were Continue reading >>

Top 10 Weight Loss Mistakes

Top 10 Weight Loss Mistakes

Testimony of the Day 30 Day Accelerated Testimony: “Maria Maria Maria!! I’m so excited—I’m down 10lbs after about 6 weeks and what seemed an interminable stall—I went back thru all the Advanced Keto 30 day plan info and took your advice—eliminated all dairy, almond and psyllium flours and it worked! I’m on a roll! Could not be happier, even after a serious mishap and tearing my ACL/MCL right in the midst of our 1200 mile move from CO to VA! Doc says I can do rehab for the MCL and do the ACL surgery in 6 wks. If I wasn’t so overwhelmed with our move I’d be trying to do the webinar! I’m just so happy that I’m 6 weeks into the program and feel competent to cope with all the current challenges. Thank you, again!” – Cathy I want to start out my reminding you that a Well-Formulated Ketogenic diet is very specific. I get clients all the time that claim they eat keto but when we dive into what they are consuming, I wouldn’t be in ketosis if I ate what they were consuming. I have clients who are so metabolically damaged that even adding lemon to their water can take them out of ketosis. A Well-Formulated Ketogenic Diet also does not have the ill effects of when people first go low carb such as feeling tired, depressed and having heavy legs when walking up the stairs. A common mistake is that people start adding in fruits and more carbohydrates because they “feel better” when they add in carbs. The problem was their diet wasn’t Well-Formulated. When you first start a low carb or ketogenic diet you lose a lot of water weight. When clients first adapt to the keto-adapted lifestyle, one of the first side effects is a rapid improvement in insulin sensitivity. Eating low-carb causes insulin levels fall quickly, and your body starts to banish insulin r Continue reading >>

The Truth About Low Carbohydrate Diets And Hair Loss

The Truth About Low Carbohydrate Diets And Hair Loss

Read Time: 15 minutes Will A Low Carb Diet Stop Your Hair Loss? In 2012, I did a four-month test to see if a ketogenic / low-carbohydrate diet would stop my hair loss. This article uncovers my experience: why I did it, what went wrong, and my biggest takeaways from “low-carbing”. By the end, you should know: The connection between ketosis, heart health, and hair loss How a low-carbohydrate diet might HELP and HURT your hair My biggest low-carb mistake (hint: it’s one that almost everyone makes) My advice for anyone trying a ketogenic diet and worried about hair shedding Low-Carbohydrate Diets: The Latest Trend Or A Fitness Holy Grail? When I first heard about a low carbohydrate diet, I thought I was talking to a crazy person. It was 2012, and I was standing across from a Cross-Fitter. He rambled on about how (in two months) his new low-carb diet miraculously cleared up his acne, helped him shed 10 pounds, and even improved his mental acuity. I walked home thinking he was brainwashed. But I soon read hundreds of online testimonials from low-carbohydrate dieters. They all shared this Cross-Fitters’ anecdotes: rapid weight loss, clearer skin, better energy. Then came a series of studies supporting everyone’s claims. Low carbohydrate diets… …are associated with marked neurological improvements in epilepsy, dementia, and Alzheimer sufferers. …may delay or even suppress tumor growth in cancer patients. …could help prevent coronary heart disease – even more so than low-fat diets. That last point got me wondering… Given heart disease’s correlation with pattern hair loss, and given that I’d yet to find a solution to my hair thinning, then maybe a low-carbohydrate diet might help me stop or reverse my hair loss. The only way to know? To test and find out Continue reading >>

What is a Keto Diet? A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc. When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin. Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy so that it will be chosen over any other energy source. Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodstream by taking it around the body. Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver. The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates. Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it – when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source. Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits. Make keto simple and easy by checking out our 30 Day Meal Plan. Get meal plans, shopping lists, and much more with our Keto Academy Program. Looking for Something Specific? There are numerous benefits that come with being on keto: from weight loss and increased energy levels to therapeutic medical appl Continue reading >>

Stop Hair Loss During Weight Loss By Taking Vitamins And Supplements Vs Eating Diet Foods That Support Hair Growth Vs Adding Regular Scalp And Hair Treatments ... And 1 More

One of the most challenging aspects of losing weight is facing the hair loss that is often the result of: Eating a diet that is restricted in calories as this causes your body to stop sending nutrients to "unnecessary" bodily functions such as growing hair to ensure that other autonomic functions and systems keep working Eating a diet that is restricted in fat, as this causes hair follicles to stop producing the sebum that nourishes strong, flexible hair that resists breakage Eating a diet that has you eating the same foods every day, thus causing hair loss due to missing vitamins and nutrients Eating a diet that restricts protein intake, such as a vegetarian weight loss regimen that forbids meat, as hair is made entirely of protein Eating a diet with no dairy, which can affect magnesium and calcium levels needed to grow hair Failing to eat foods that may be keeping your hormones in balance so that byproducts from normal biochemical actions in your body (such as the sex hormone DHT) do not build up and cause hair loss No matter what type of diet you are on, there are some dietary and lifestyle measures that you can take to minimize the inevitable hair thinning, fallout and patchy balding that can be the result of dieting. The cause of hair thinning and hair loss in dieters is malnutrition. Make sure that the supplement includes all A, C, D, E and all the B vitamins as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese and zinc. You can mix it in juice or water if you like. Silicon gel contains silicon, which helps growing hair absorb minerals that may be lacking in a low-calorie or no diary diet such as calcium, magnesium, selenium and magnesium. Biotin is essential for hair growth and it helps the hair follicles absorb other vitamins, but especially the B vitamins that Continue reading >>

Does Low Carb/keto Eating Make Your Hair Fall Out?

Does Low Carb/keto Eating Make Your Hair Fall Out?

So I went to a new hairdresser last week, my last one is great but is a 40 min drive away and in Brisbane traffic, it ends up being an hour and a half round trip! The new one is 5 mins away, so it was worth a shot. However I’m always a bit apprehensive trying a new one as you get to know your hairdressers, they become like friends – so it’s always… Will you like them? Will they like you? Do they do a good job? Do you like the salon and the rest of the crew? Does it all smell like chemicals in there? Do they leave you alone or talk too much? Does it cost 4 times more than you thought it would? But I needn’t have worried, they were lovely and we got to talking about the low carb diet (as I tend to do, I can’t help myself.) And she said that she only went on it for about 3 months and while she did lose weight, being in the hairdressing game, she did notice her hair become considerably thinner in that short time. Her cousin though had been low carbing for longer and lost at least half the volume of her hair. As I’ve mentioned before, it happened to me – I had visited my old Gold Coast hairdresser and she was shocked at how thin my hair had become. You could see tufts of it growing back along my hairline. And on Instagram, a lovely lady I follow, Simmy Tan, who has now shifted to Ray Peat style of eating after years of dieting, showed a photo of considerable bald patches forming on her head. (Her subsequent recovery is a great story to follow!) A quick look on the net reveals it has happened to loads of people on low carb with the explanation being that it is a response caused by metabolic or hormonal stress in the body. With some saying “don’t worry, stay on the diet, it grows back!” Are you kidding me? Keep eating in a way that stresses and damages yo Continue reading >>

How To Use (and Not To Use) Exogenous Ketones For Weight Loss

How To Use (and Not To Use) Exogenous Ketones For Weight Loss

“How do I use ketones to help me lose weight?” Great question. It’s worth the few minutes to understand how exogenous ketones can help people lose weight on a ketogenic diet, and not just jump to the conclusion that ketones = weight loss. Breaking Down Ketone Weight Loss Misconceptions The most common misconception (perhaps due to excessive marketing claims) is that taking ketone supplements will induce immediate weight loss. The purpose of this article is to explain how to use ketones as a piece of the puzzle in your weight loss lifestyle. Remember exogenous ketones are supplements. Very effective at what they do, but none the less, should be supplementary to a low carb/ketogenic style of eating that is geared towards weight loss (if weight loss is the goal). Ketones don’t cause weight loss, they help cause ketosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state where your body is using fatty acids for its primary source of energy. Just because you are using fat does not necessarily mean you are going to be losing weight or have a decrease in body fat percentage over an extended period of time. I have been in deep nutritional ketosis (>3.0mmol/dL) and had an increase in body fat percentage. I’ve also been in deep nutritional ketosis and had a decrease in body fat percentage. It all depends on how much fat and protein you are eating, in addition to being below a carb threshold that will induce ketosis. Please don’t take this to mean starve yourself. It just means that the average male American has over 40,000 calories in stored body fat and can, therefore, afford to eat a lower calorie ketogenic diet, and still survive (and thrive!). Take home message: Exogenous ketones are a tool to get you into ketosis or to boost your energy levels while already in ketosis. If your motive Continue reading >>

Low Carb Diet Side Effects

Low Carb Diet Side Effects

Low carb diet side effects are manageable if you understand why they happen and how to minimize them. Understanding your physical reactions will help you avoid the worst of the symptoms, and keep you from quitting before you get out of the chute, so to speak. After several weeks, these side effects will subside as you become "keto-adapted" and able to burn fat instead of glucose for fuel. The list below includes the most common low carb diet side effects, and I've included tips on how to handle them. The only caveat is that you have no contraindicated health conditions. I have detailed here who should NOT follow a ketogenic diet. Frequent Urination After the first day or so, you'll notice that you are in the bathroom urinating more often. Your body is burning up the extra glycogen (stored glucose) in your liver and muscles. Breaking down glycogen releases a lot of water. As your carb intake and glycogen stores drop, your kidneys will start dumping this excess water. In addition, as your circulating insulin levels drop, your kidneys start excreting excess sodium, which will also cause more frequent urination. (see this reference). Fatigue and Dizziness As you start dumping water, you'll lose minerals such as salt, potassium and magnesium as well. Having lower levels of these minerals will make you very, very tired, lightheaded or dizzy, give you muscle cramps, and headaches. You may also experience skin itchiness. Fatigue and dizziness are the most common of the low carb diet side effects, and they can be avoided for the most part by making sure you stay ahead of mineral loss. You can counteract mineral losses by eating more salt or sipping salty broth throughout the day, and eating potassium rich foods. (Dairy foods, green leafy vegetables and avocados are high in potas Continue reading >>

Why Hair Loss On Keto?

Why Hair Loss On Keto?

Male pattern hair loss is a common condition where men of all ages start to lose their hair. Men with this condition have hair follicles that are sensitive to the male hormone testosterone. A hair growth cycle normally lasts for three years. Hair grows wispier and hairlines recede during the growth part of each cycle. Other reasons men may lose their hair include; stress, over styling, some medications, autoimmune diseases and lack of vitamin B. Extreme weight loss is also attributed to hair loss because the body suffers a degree of shock due to a change of food intake. The Keto diet is a high protein diet that is low in carbohydrates. Bodybuilders use the Keto diet to build up muscle mass and reduce body fat. Some men notice a degree of hair loss when following the diet while others claim that a reduced carb diet encourages hair growth. Male Pattern Baldness Male pattern baldness is hair loss that is very common in middle-aged men. Younger men also suffer from male pattern baldness. Hair loss occurs because the hair follicles are weakened by the hormone testosterone. Hair tends to get thinner all over in a distinctive pattern. This type of hair loss is likely to be due to genetics and runs in families. It is often easier for older men to deal with losing their hair than younger men. There is no permanent cure for a receding hairline except for a hair transplant which is very expensive and not always guaranteed to work. Medication such as Aindeem and Propecia reduce the amount of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the hair follicles. Hair follicles convert testosterone into DHT which causes them to shrink reducing hair growth. This treatment only works if there is a significant amount of hair left. If you stop taking this medication you will continue to lose hair. This type o Continue reading >>

Can Low Carb Or Ketogenic Diets Cause Hair Loss?

Can Low Carb Or Ketogenic Diets Cause Hair Loss?

A low carb diet reduces the intake of carbohydrates by eliminating foods like rice, pasta, and bread from your diet. This type of diet can also remove many fruits, whole grains, and vegetables. Depending on the kind of diet selected, you may decide to eat large amounts of protein-rich foods and dairy products to replace the carbohydrate that is missing to fuel an Atkins diet. If following a high-fat dieting lifestyle for ketosis, you would need a much more significant percentage of calories from fats such as avocados, olives and coconut and MCT oil. Unfortunately, some people can complain of a low carb high-fat diet and hair falling out. Hormones change within in the body which results in metabolic stress that the body must handle. Reasons Your Hair Is Falling Out? Hair all over the body falls out every day. It is a natural process the body handles automatically. When hair falls out, it can be for many reasons. As we age, our hair strands become finer and lose pigmentation. It affects both male and female equally. Genetics play a big role in hair loss and is often unavoidable. Both males and females can expect to start slowly losing hair in their 30s and 40s. There is no rule here, and it can happen at any age even early to late 20s. Women after giving birth will have significant hormonal changes going through their body. Some women experience such drastic change that the thyroid hormone malfunctions and doesn’t produce enough thyroxine resulting in hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism effects rapid heartbeat, sweating, weight loss, and sleep problems, and the condition of hair and growth. A blood test can assess the health of your thyroid gland. Losing and regaining weight over many years takes its toll on your metabolism and your hair. Long-term low-calorie diets are de Continue reading >>

Hair Loss And Diet

Hair Loss And Diet

I'm a 22 year old male, been mostly paleo since the end of January. Just the past few week or two, I've noticed more hair on my pillow and coming off my head in the shower. It's not balding in a single patch on my head, and but there is definitely more hair coming off my head on a day to day basis. I didn't expect to go bald because my maternal grandfather never did. Could this be a temporary phenomenon related to stress / diet? Has anyone else experienced a hair change while going paleo? I also have recently changed to not shampooing as often and using only doctor bronner's soap. Any info would be appreciated. Continue reading >>
