Default Reducing hair loss associated with weight loss

I've lost 50 lbs. since June. Now I'm losing my hair! I went for a checkup on Monday and my doctor agreed the excess shedding is probably due to the weight loss since I'm not premenopausal and my scalp looked ok. My blood work all came back normal. She said it would calm down once I met my goal weight.

But I'm losing sooo much and it's really depressing. I have super long hair, so I'm talking about handfuls a day. I have 20 lbs. more to lose and I'm afraid I'll be bald by then! Besides drinking enough water, eating protein, and vitamins, is there anything I can do to slow it down? And, more importantly, will it all grow back?

I'm going through the exact same thing atm
but I still have 70+ lbs to go!

Well I am taking Bari Efa which is fish oil pills, I was told that it will help me, it's been a few months but only notice a little improvement tbh.

Hang in there! hopefully we'll get our beautiful hair growing back soon
