Very interesting, Jimmy. I'll have to get a hold of his book and try out his recommendations. My gray hair lessened a bit when I was early on in the LC phase, but has returned. I'm not sure what changed. Maybe I've let enough carbs creep back to cause it. Hmmmmm

I've been eating low carb for almost 10 years and that hasn't stopped me from getting some gray hairs. I'm almost 55 and it seems like my hair is just finally starting to go sort of gray all over in the past few months. I don't know if that's an early, late or about average age for going gray. From a distance my hair still looks brown but it's more of a "dusty" brown now and I have never colored my hair.

LCing hasn't seemed to reduce my gray hairs, but eating healthy makes my hair grow faster which requires me to visit the hairdresser more frequently to touch up the gray stripe. Wink

Low carb eating is a much healthier way of eating than the alternative, but I don’t think it has anything to do with grey hair. I have been eating LC for almost 8 years and if anything my accumulation of grey has increased. I don’t attribute that to my diet, but to the fact I am getting older.

Big Grin

It seems to me that this sort of thing would be impossible to prove anyway. How would you ever know if a person's hair would have turned more or less gray had they not eaten a low carb diet? It's not as if they could go back in time and try it differently the next time. There's no way of knowing in advance at what age a person will go gray because everyone is different.

Yeah, I think some of the claims for a LC diet are a stretch.

Maybe there exists a set of identical twins where one discovered low carb early in life, but the other stayed with SAD?

I have to agree with the majority opinion here. I've been low-carbing since 2003, and I have more grey hair every year. What's left of it.Sad

Kathy says LCing makes her hair grow faster. I haven't noticed that, but it surely makes my nails grow faster and stronger. I used to have all kinds of problems with weak nails, and that disappeared when I went LC.
