So it seems like my hair is not looking as healthy as normal. Are there any supplements that I can take to make it thick and shiny again?.

Thank you..

Look at you ! You are almost done ! Nice ticker.

MF sells Omega 3 which has flax seed & fish oil with out sugars or glutens..

Try a search on Nutrisystem for hair, it's a common question...

I use biotin, you can buy it at walmart or anywhere.....

I have been done with Medifast for about 6 months now, but my hair loss has finally stopped. I did start to take biotin about 2 months ago. It did take at least 6 weeks to notice a difference, but it did help for sure. I have always taken total EFA supplements for years and I still lost alot of hair during the MF, but it goes away after you eat more variety and the biotin. you are almost done so it wont be long now..

I'll have to look for these supplements too. My hair got very thin on this wonderful weight loss journey...

Comment #4

This is scary to me. I just ordered my food. Does your hair get back to normal after it is over? Does this happen to everybody?.


Comment #5

Ky, no it doesn't happen to everyone and yes it does grow back in, so don't be scared!..

Comment #6

For those who use biotin how much do you take?.

Ps. KyCatsFan Hair loss can be a side effect of rapid weight loss (on any diet, not just medifast)... but yes, it does come back when you stop losing...

This is a fear for me as well as I ALWAYS lose hair whenever I take off weight. I was hoping all the nutrients in Medifast might allay the loss and will add the biotin and fish oil today. I will try anything to not lose my hair as I hate it. It does come back but while I shed I never as if it will never stop...
