Danny Roddy, Paleo blogger and author of The Healthy Hair Diet is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb with Jimmy Moore!
A few years ago, Danny Roddy was in a band that was going places. The problem was, so was his hair–falling out at the ripe age of 20. With music being so youth-oriented and image-driven, Danny started getting very self-conscious about his receding hairline. This started him down a path that led from prescription medications to supplementation, to OVER-supplementation, to veganism, and finally to Paleo dieting. Through a combination of trial and error, self-experimentation and tons of research, he claims to have found the dietary path to avoiding follicular folly!
Listen in for the role hormones play in hair loss, how the markers of metabolic syndrome correspond to those of balding, the roles of healthy fats (including butter and coconut oil) in hair loss prevention, and a surprising root vegetable he endorses. Is this for real? Is Danny in it just to sell his Healthy Hair Diet e-book?
Since he offers the diet as a free download, too, that seems unlikely. He also clearly understands a great deal about contemporary nutrition science as recognized by the low-carb and Paleo movement and the references cited in his e-book are so voluminous as to reach “Taubes”ian proportions. Don’t miss this hair-raising interview!
