    Wow 100g or protein a day? What are you eating??

    I don't do protein shakes because I think a lot of them are loaded with chemicals. I'm struggling to figure out how I'd get that much protein in a day without going to protein shakes. I know vegetables technically have protein in them also, so if you count all of that, you may be over 60g a day.. but 100g is more than I've heard of.

    Oh my jeeez....reading all of the personal variations is ripping my mind apart. *insert some kind of Hellraiser visuals here*
    Obviously there is a real factor between ones current and congruent body chemistry and the administering of the biotin itself. I myself think to have observed a noticeable change in growth rate (for the better) while adhering to a somewhat specific diet. And strangely enough I had no prior idea of the kind of diet that might be conducive to hair growth. But after reading some of the posts here...it seems to make much more sense now. Twas high protein, and under normal carb intake. However I did get my protein from whey shakes....in which i blended in things like coconut, almonds, and plain oats. My Dr...even acted kinda surprised when she told me about my LDL count. As if her normal routine was to blast her patients Cholesterol levels all to heck lol. Which is understandable as im referring to an indian clinic. I do have to admit though that being able to walk into someplace and get prescripts and med care for free is mighty nice. Its almost cult like...in that you have to have a documented membership to take part. And you would be surprised at who you see there. Long haired injuns....and executive suits. Side by side.
    Anyhoo...maybe supplements can be a welcome kick in the rear....but(t)...I am pretty sure they are not meant to be relied upon solely, and work better with a good frame of mind. If plants can benefit from affection, why cant ones own hair?

    Have you heard about Spiru-tein? I have the same concerns as you and I like using this supplement. I have to find some sort of protein source since I'm vegetarian and this one tastes super good as a morning drink + has spiruline, biotin, zinc, vitamin A&B&C, iron, calcium, everything you'd want for you hair

    I was actually looking into spirulina (havent tried it yet, I'm very cautious about introducing new things). That supplement looks great! I'm just weary about the high Vitamin A content because I know too much Vitamin A causes hair loss? Or am I wrong on that?

    It's easy to get high protein:
    eat meat
    eat yogurt (specifically greek)
    you must eat protein at every meal (meat or yogurt are the best sources on a gram by gram basis)

    Today, I had approximately 82 grams of protein, and if I had tried, I could have hit 100 grams. I didn't eat an unusual amount of food either, I had greek yogurt (18 grams protein for the amount i ate) for breakfast, a lean cuisine with 15 grams protein for lunch, a lean cuisine with 15 grams protein for dinner, and at some point I ate a hamburger patty as a snack, and some various fruits as snacks. (the lean cuisine is because I'm in the middle of moving, and have no time to properly cook, normally i cook). At no point did I ingest anything resembling a protein shake. And I may yet hit 100 grams before bed if I get up and snack on more yogurt like I've been considering. I've also only eaten about 1300 calories so far, so I can eat more protein without exploding my diet, if I wanted to.

    I drink a green tea with added biotin. When I've had a cup a day my nails are stronger. When i don't have it my nails break. Not sure it has an effect on my hair but my friend who bleaches it (we dye each other's hair) says my hair grows a like a weed anyway!

    I quit taking biotin last summer because I didn't think it was doing anything, but looking at my growth chart, I think it was. I think I'll pick some up and start back up with it!
