I was on the candida diet for about 3 months when I was 19 and I guess that’s kind of like paleo or gaps. It was extremely low carb and probably way too much protein. I did it for gut issues which it help, but turned out because I wasn’t having dairy and discovered my lactose intolerance.
Not so long after I started eating my old diet again (probably only 2-4 weeks) I woke up one day and had a hairy stomach! This has progressed over 10 years even with eating normally. I don’t know what it’s done but I think the very low carb diet may have screwed me up hormonally and I’m still trying to figure out how to get back to how I was :(
I’ve always had a fast metabolism and the low carb didn’t screw with that, thank god.
Oh yeah and it’s really annoying for me because when I type in “low carb” and “hirsutism” into google all I get a websites praising low carb for treatment of hirsutism, and I’m 99% sure it CAUSED it for me, I can’t be the only person in the world this has happened to.
