Why Your New Year's Diet Might Cause Hair Loss
New Year, New You, eh? I’m all for it. I’m on a constant journey of recreation and reinventing self (is that bad?). However, that New Year’s Diet you are about to start, might cause hair loss. Here’s why:
Drastic change shocks the body and essentially scares your hair right off the scalp.
Honestly, dieting is a fad. Lifestyle change is most effective. Adopting a better way of treating your body, protecting your temple, nourishing your sanctuary is the best way to go. We are so thirsty for change and quick results that we forget, our bodies didn’t get to be what they are overnight.
For those who don’t know me, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE doughnuts. Just like Homer Simpson, we share the same passion for doughnuts. But, unfortunately/fortunately for me, I happened upon Gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my first child. Not wonderful, and a very real awakening for the lifestyle choices I had previously made. I took it as a warning from the future Crissy saying “hey girl, you trippin’ trippin’ SLOW DOWN, otherwise, we ain’t gonna make it!”
Now that the baby factory is closed (fingers crossed) and my second child is done nursing, I’m ready to enter 2019 with a clear head and a new approach to eating. I’ve decided to intermittently fast and eat the most nutrient dense, fulfilling foods available. Mixing the principles of intermittent fasting with Fit for Life by Harvey Diamond, I think will produce desired results.
So, for your new year’s diet, be kind to your body, your hair depends on it. Drink water, take all the vitamins and minerals. Find the most fitting lifestyle change and don’t focus on the scale…it’s probably broken anyway.
