What Should You Eat After Hair Transplant?

First, we should clarify that there are no vitamin supplements you specifically need after a hair transplant. Consuming certain vitamins does not necessarily enable your hair to grow faster or thicker. Although many food supplements on the market claim to accelerate hair growth after hair transplant, there is no scientific evidence to support such claims.

Adopting a balanced and healthy diet after hair transplant will provide you with enough resources to ensure healthy hair growth.

Including biotin and foods rich in iron in your diet can improve the quality of hair. We recommend healthy foods like oily fish, eggs, walnuts, spinach, yogurt, and almonds not only to enhance hair quality, but also to improve your overall health.

WHAT IS HEALTHY EATING FOR YOUR OVERALL HEALTH?

While people’s awareness of healthy eating is increasing across the globe, wellness and healthy nutrition is becoming a giant industry in its own right, causing some unnecessary consumption as well.

Unless you make healthy eating a lifestyle, you can reap any real benefits from dieting. Today, some diet plans advise reducing carbohydrate consumption to almost zero, while some take red meat off the menu and others allow only fruits and vegetables.

The real problem with these diet strategies is that they are not “sustainable”. If you ask people to stay away from the foods they like, this may cause a lot of stress over time even though it achieves the weight loss they desire.

If you are confused about all this healthy eating advice, we recommend you to focus on “foods you should avoid” rather than “what you need to eat”.

WHAT FOODS SHOULD YOU AVOID EATING?

PROCESSED FOOD

Research has proven that consumption of processed foods can lead to many health problems, including cancer.

Packaged foods like crackers, cookies, margarine, sausages, potato chips, fast food and soft drinks may contain a variety of chemical additives, as well as high amounts of salt, sugar or high-fructose corn syrup, which can be harmful to human health.

Actually, all of these foods can be prepared at home – you can make healthy biscuits, hamburgers, and drinks at home.

ALCOHOL

It is best to remove alcohol from your life forever. According to statistics, alcohol is the third leading preventable cause of death. In other words, millions of people die every year from alcohol-related causes.

Although research over the last 30 years has shown that moderate drinking limited to 1-2 glasses of whiskey or red wine (max 15 grams of pure alcohol) can raise good cholesterol, lower triglycerides and reduce heart attack risk, it is not easy to stay within safe limits so there is always the risk of alcohol abuse.

Of course, social drinking on special occasions like weddings and family gatherings can be viewed as a harmless activity.

REFINED SUGAR

Refined sugar is a high calorie food that does not provide any health benefits. Daily sugar consumption over 35 grams in men and over 20 grams in women can trigger serious health problems such as type 2 diabetes, various heart diseases, and obesity.

We can get the daily amount of natural sugar we need from the foods we eat every day. Drinking fruit juices, soft drinks and eating foods containing added sugars like desserts cause us to exceed this limit. In fact, even 1.5 glass of orange juice freshly squeezed at home meets our daily sugar need. A can of coke, for instance, contains more sugar than your daily need.

You will have made an important step towards healthy eating when you remove these foods from your life or if you can limit them as much as possible.

OUR HEALTHY EATING ADVICE: MEDITERRANEAN DIET

Studies into Mediterranean diet have shown that this type of eating provides weight control, reduces cholesterol and blood pressure, decreasing the risk of heart attack and various types of cancer.

In addition, Mediterranean diet is the key to a longer and healthier life. Although many diets, such as Paleo, Atkins, and Dukan, are now popular, the Mediterranean diet offers far superior benefits that have been proven by various meta-analyses, which combine the results of multiple scientific studies.

Mediterranean diets generally include the following foods:

– Fresh vegetables and fruits of different colors
– White meat (especially oily fish)
– Nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, and walnuts
– Whole grain foods
– Foods with high quality carbohydrates such as lentils, beans, chickpeas, peas
– Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Adopting a healthy diet containing these foods is of vital importance not only to improve your overall health but also to enhance the strength and quality of your hair.
