How Can Nutrisystem Hair Loss Happen?
According to the blood work completed by the doctor of a nutrisystem user the cause of nutrisystem hair loss was due to "poor nutrition".
According to Fatima Cody Stanford, M.D., M.P.H. (an obesity medicine physician at Massachusetts General Hospital) She says - "People often don’t take in enough protein when they lose weight, she explains. And, when you don’t get enough protein, your body has to decide where to send the protein it does have. Given that your hair isn’t crucial to your survival, it gets the leftovers, Stanford says—and that can lead to hair loss."
What Can I Do To Keep My Hair While Losing Weight?
First off don't join nutrisystem. According to the doctor's orders from the guest post above, the doctor ordered their patient to stop using nutrisystem in order to grow their hair back and return to their prior diet.
Nutritional foods and vitamins to avoid hair loss thinning are extremely important. Eating the wrong foods can cause a hormonal imbalance which in turn can cause hair loss.
Please keep your meals balanced. Fad diets are not reliable. Try to keep to diets that are tried and true. Keep it simple by sticking to the basics in order to lose weight while keeping your hair to avoid hair thinning.
As said by Fatima Cody Stanford, M.D., M.P.H. eating protein will help with avoiding hair loss.

I am so sad to tell you to stay away from nutrisystem if it has helped you lose weight. You can walk away from it and still loose weight. Stay active the best you can. If you can't stand exercises move around in a way that is fun for you!
I had a friend loose a bunch of weight simply by going to Disneyland more often due to all the walking she was doing, she didn't even realize that she was exercising! Make it fun just don't over do anything.
My Advice is please don't starve yourself as that too will cause hair loss as the doctor above said, low nutrition was the cause of nutrisystem hair loss.
Stay well, keep it healthy and you can't go wrong.
