I started eating raw again last week after falling off the wagon for awhile. I basically eat raw most of the day and have a regular vegetarian meal for dinner. I am not 100% raw now. I figure it is best for me to ease into a raw diet slowly again instead of going 100%.
Anyway, I noticed my hair is falling out again in larger amounts than normal. Granted, I have been under some stress because of work and financial things but when I was not eating raw I didn’t have this hair problem. I just don’t get it. What am I missing from my diet to make my hair fall out more? Am I not consuming enough calories? Is it something else? I even started taking a multi-vitamin just in case, One A Day Maximum vitamin. When I was eating high raw last year and earlier this year I also had this hair problem but it slowly subsided when I added the Vitamineral Green mix to my diet. I assumed then I just wasn’t consuming enough greens and other nutrients. But now I just don’t know anymore.
My typical diet so far looks like this:
breakfast: 1 sliced banana with cinnamon sprinkled on top along with a small handful of walnuts.
snack: Either a green smoothie or if I am in a hurry a green drink. My green drink consists of 4 to 5 oz. of 100% orange or grape juice usually store bought mixed in with Vitamineral Green. Vitamineral Green is a raw, organic green superfood powder mix, I love it.
lunch: A medium sized garden salad with different veggies and 1 to 2 tablespoons of hemp seed mixed in the salad. I also try to mix in some nutritional yeast for the extra protein. I sometimes use low fat commerical salad dressing.
snack: More fruit.
dinner: A vegetarian meal…. maybe pasta with marinara sauce.
snack: Usually some fruit and a small mixture of hemp seeds and walnuts. Sometimes I will indulge in a few carob chips.
Any thoughts on why this is happening and what I can do to correct it?
