Prevent Hair Fall
I have a lot of hair fall since one month. I feel very anxious about this, please can you tell me what is wrong and if a change in my diet can rectify this. I have been skipping lunch for the last 2-months to lose weight.
First of all relax you can lose hair from tension. Skipping meals is the next greatest cause for losing hair. Your body requires certain nutrients in specific quantities daily and they can be provided and absorbed only if you eat all three meals. Please understand that skipping meals does not help losing weight. You have to eat all meals with a proper balance of all foods but only learn to skip and say no to FATTY FOOD. Your body requires water, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates and protein daily and a tiny amount of fat.
Your body requires 50-70 gm protein daily, which is important for growth and maintenance of hair. The protein has to be provided as 20 gm at breakfast 20gm at lunch and 20gm at dinner. This protein is essential for your hair and skin daily. If you miss a meal 20gm protein is lost and surely the hair becomes weak and falls out. Similarly the body requires 500 gms of calcium daily. If you are not taking curds and milk 400-500 ml daily then this calcium need is not met and hair loss is seen.
Therefore we advice never to skip meals and please make sure protein rich foods like dhal/pulses, milk/curd and egg or non-veg are included in every meal. Also 2 glasses of milk is a must daily for all ages and fruits and salads too must be eaten daily to keep up a good supply of vitamin and mineral.
- 2 glasses of milk / curd
- 2 servings of dhal/pulse (lunch and dinner)
- 2 servings of salad (lunch and dinner)
- 2 servings of fruit (11 am and 6 pm)
- Are a must for healthy hair and skin.
