My nails have always been strong and long but on the 811 diet they bend and
break easily. Why is this? If I go back to the SAD diet for a couple days I already
notice a difference in how much stronger they are.... What is up with this????
Hi Jem,firstly it's impossible to have stronger or weaker nails that quickly.The end of the nail takes 3 months to grow thru,so i'm not quite sure what you're worrying about.The nail you're seeing now is fueled on the food you ate 3 months ago. To have a very accurate picture of how your body thrives on hcrv(without calorie restriction or flip flopping from raw vegan to cooked food.)you need to be 100% hcrv for 12 months at least,without slip ups to know,and then it's only the beginning especially if you have come from a background of ill health or disordered eating.Rest easy and enjoy the journey.
I don't know what to attribute it to then or explain it, because it is a very noticeable difference. Weird and annoying....
That's interesting, I had just the opposite thing happen....my nails started to grow and became more strong once consumming lots of fruit. And honestly it was only after a few weeks that I noticed this happenning.
I know everyone does. But I don't know why it could be happening though days after I change my diet.
