I’m a male, 30, currently doing 5:2 and loving it, I’ve lost half a stone and I’m getting on well with the diet.
However, I’ve read so many conflicting stories about fasting’s effect on hair; I’m a bit confused.
Some sites have people claiming that fasting is slowing/helping their hair loss, yet others say the fasting is causing their hair loss.
I love the diet, but really don’t want to lose any hair. Can anyone provide any info on this?

I’d ignore them all. 5:2 is extremely gentle fasting and I can’t imagine it doing anything to our hair. I’ve been doing 5:2 for two and a half years and no sign of my hair doing anything unusual as a result. Cheers.
