weight loss and hair loss. Slimming quickly is the goal we usually set when there is a key date marked on our calendar. See an important event (a wedding, an important party or a celebration) or simply the arrival of summer (which is getting closer and closer). Be that as it may, when this happens we always want to show our best appearance, so sometimes we resort to fast diets or miracle diets that help achieve visible results … as soon as possible.
HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT EFFECTIVELY AND IN A SHORT TIME
The professionals of Vanitas Espai always advise that when it comes to weight loss, there is planning and a change of lifestyle (from sedentary lifestyle to physical activity; from patriotism to anti-cellulite and reducing treatments; from food intake without reflection to healthy diet, etc.), but we know that this is not always possible. Well, not everyone is willing to sacrifice or change their habits.
So, for cases where you want to lose weight fast, we recommend that you talk to a nutritionist to help you achieve the desired goal without sacrificing health.
Because, yes, losing weight abruptly and without advice can have very harmful consequences for our body. Not only can we suffer the consequences of an unbalanced diet and lack of certain nutrients, minerals or vitamins, but, in addition, we can see how suddenly our skin becomes flaccid and how our hair falls out.
Hair, as you well know, is extremely sensitive. However strong and healthy we may be, when health fails, it is one of the main indicators that something “in there” is not working well. But also when we feed ourselves badly, it shows, inescapable, that we are failing and not giving everything we need to be beautiful, bright, strong and healthy.
Therefore, if you are thinking about losing weight and you are going to start with your particular bikini diet, keep this in mind. Your hair can suffer the consequences if you don’t act carefully and if you don’t do things right. So if you want to lose weight without sacrificing your hair health, pay attention to these tips.
To burn calories, exercise is the most useful . That’s how it is. Nobody said it was easy. If you simply eat less, you will see how you lose fluids, which translates into slight weight loss. But it is not real. That, as soon as it is lost as it recovers.
Therefore, it is best that you exercise. Find one you like, explore possibilities and find yours. It is the most effective way to lose weight without feeling that you are making a great sacrifice (lack of food).
If you already exercise, it will be enough for you to intensify your sports activity temporarily to enhance the results.
DO NOT EAT RADICALLY LESS, EAT BETTER
Calories are the energy that food provides us, and reducing them is the key to forcing the body to consume its own reserves. Bet on a light breakfast of skim milk and fruit with whole grains; for the meal salad and chicken or turkey steak, and dinner of vegetable and fish soup. Between hours you can chop fruit or skimmed yogurt. Avoid sweets, fats … And, in general, excesses.
Also, make smaller portions for your dishes, but a larger number of meals a day , you will avoid feeling hungry and help you control yourself. It is important to set a goal and make a balanced menu so as not to deviate and achieve the desired weight.
Of course, this would be a logical suggestion, the typical healthy diet that is recommended, but if you have ambitious goals, it is best to speak with a nutrition professional to track your progress.
Remember that hydration is key to a healthy life . But you must run away from carbonated drinks and alcohol. Get in the water and try to drink more than two liters a day.

If you do all this, your hair should not suffer consequences when you lose weight. But, of course, not all hairs are the same. There are some more sensitive than others and you may, despite all the care and efforts, notice that your hair loses strength, vitality and even falls out.
WHY DOES HAIR FALL OUT WHEN WE LOSE WEIGHT?
An insufficient diet can lead to hair loss or alopecia due to nutritional deficit . When the body does not receive the fuel needed to function, it decreases its activity in several processes, including the one that generates the hair.
Keep in mind that more than 90% of your hair is made up of proteins, which are necessary for growth to occur . These are obtained from food, but if your diet is poor or unbalanced it damages the health of the hair.
IS THIS HAIR LOSS IRREVERSIBLE?
It all depends on how your body is and the health of your hair. Ideally, as we said before, to avoid scares, this does not happen.
It is possible that the irregularity in the growth of the hair is temporary and that it manifests itself in an alopecia generally of the areata type, in the form of depopulated areas of hair in some areas of the skull; but there can also be diffuse alopecia, with hair loss more evenly throughout the skull.
