Hm... I've lost 116 lbs on IP with no hair loss. Guess it's different for everyone.

Default Hair loss could be connected to soy and a thyroid reaction

Just adding my 2 cents, but after losing 60 lbs on medifast I began to lose hair along my scalpline as well as from my eyebrows. It turns out that, for some people, having too much soy can trigger a thyroid problem which results in hair loss. The protein in all of the medifast food is soy. Other than that, I felt fantastic while on that diet! If any of you also see hair loss in your brows, you might consider seeing an endocrinologist to check your thyroid.
The secret to happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you have.

I'm six weeks into maintenance and still loosing hair like crazy. It makes me so sad because I use to love my hair! The hair loss began about four months into the diet (I was on P1 for 9 months total) and there has been no noticeable slowing down. Hoping I see an end to the hair loss soon.

Any other maintainers who continued to lose after phasing off? How long until the massive shedding stopped?

I lost a ton of hair as I began maintenance. I wish I could recall the timing, but it did grow back fully in a matter of months. It has something to do with the cycle of hair growth. Hang in there!

Lex: I lost a lot during the phases and well into Maintenance. You could see the pink of my scalp in the back and I was so embarrassed by that. I'm in my 8th month of maintenance now. I had a hair appt. 3 weeks ago and my stylist was thrilled to see lots of new hair growth all over my head and it was about 4" long. I still shed but not at the alarming rate that I was losing it before. I got a very short cut and my hair is naturally curly so it looks a lot thicker now than it used to.

Like Mars said, hang in there, it does come back!
