Adjusting the Diet Again
I'm sure I'll be all right. I'm just sad right now!Since I realized my hair has been falling out again, I've gone to
Trader Joe's and stocked up on fat free cottage cheese, fat free Greek
style yogurt, and some low-calorie salads that include some cheese
(goat cheese, feta cheese). I've now taken two days' of the B-Complex
vitamins my nutritionist gave me.

Today I made some vegetable
soup. I had made some last week as well, using vegetable broth as a
base, but today I used fat free, low-sodium chicken broth because it
added 24 grams of protein to the recipe. I also put in 1 cup of
(uncooked) barley, 1 can of great northern beans, and 1 package of
Trader Joe's shelled edamame.
This, along with the other ingredients (tomatoes, fresh corn, garlic,
shallots, basil, barley, great northern beans, onions, carrots and 1
diced sweet potato, in case you are wondering) made a huge amount of
soup. I got 9 2-cup servings out of this, so that's soup with 14 grams
of protein per serving and less than 300 calories. I was surprised and
quite pleased with myself. Next time I make it I don't need to put
chicken broth in it- it can be completely vegan and high- protein.
you to everyone who has given me advice about the hair loss. I am
devastated by it- not only for reasons of vanity, but because it just
disappoints me so much that changing my diet to one that is healthy in
so many other respects is having this effect on me. It took about the
same amount of weeks to notice the hair loss this time as it took me to
notice it the first time it happened- about 3 months into the dietary
change. I will definitely be looking into the advice I've gotten, such
as the hair treatment and vitamins and foods.
