    Protein shakes

    I went for two top HT doctors and they both had on their post-operation sheet: NO protein shakes for fews weeks. I wonder why.

    Last week I had a dental surgery and the dentist told me to take fluids only, no chewing for 3 weeks ! so I stock-up on protein shakes. three days later I am shedding again and my scalp is ITCHY!!. I stopped protein shakes yesterday and rubbed some tree-oil and today my scalp is much better. I should experiemnt more just to make sure.

    and now I read this: http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes ... ss-protein

    anyone else ?
    Some kind of happiness is my measured out in grafts.

    **** me

    I started eating protein bars as snacks and having protein powder with milk for breakfast when I was running late since I don't eat meat or other protein rich foods and protein is supposed to be good for hair growth, and I had increased shedding right around the same time.

    But then there are any number of things that could have caused the shedding. And the shakes were 100% soy protein and the bars were only partly whey protein and I didn't really have that many of those because they're more than the shakes.

    And yet despite the shedding, which was higher but not huge, my hair is looking better than ever. I don't get it.

    I take protein shakes/bars(mainly whey-based) all the time. You can find articles that say they help hair as well.

    The only thing I do stay away from is non-fermented soy. .

    Re: Protein shakes

    Hopefully that's not true. I've been working out for years and drink post workout protein shakes most of the time.

    There has always been a correlation between working out and hair loss. I wonder if it is from the actual workout or things we take before or after the workout?

    Most of us get more than enough protein through normal meals. I'm not convinced we need protein shakes.

    If you want to increase muscle size, you need extra protein after workouts.

    Not really, its just more convienant than prepping a meal. You can gain mass w/o protein shakes no doubt about it

    Its much cheaper per gram of protein as well even with the price of whey rising.
