Fingernails

Everyone on here seems to be raving about the wonderful state of their fingernails - long, strong and basically gorgeous. (The same thing happened to me when I went on a month-long juice fast - also it happens when I go on holiday to somewhere hot, don't know why.)

BUT on this diet, my nails are rubbish!! They've never been brilliant, but there's usually enough there to slap on a bit of polish on a Saturday night (I'm certainly not Miss Manicure, I'm afraid :eek: ). Whilst I've been on the diet, all my nails have done is break off because they're so brittle. It just keeps happening. :cry:

So why is everyone else sporting talons, whilst all I've got is a set of snapped stumps??!! :mad:

My hair and skin are ok (I'm on Week 9) however I agree with you on the nails thing, mine have gone to sh**!! Quite quickly really, very brittle, used to have lovely strong nails, now they have no strength in them at all!

It's not just me then! :eek: I too have dry skin patches but at least my hair's not falling out - scary! (The things we do, lol! But we know it'll all be worth it in the end, don't we?! :))

I couldn't comment on the brittle nails as I bite them, but my cuticles are really dry and sore. Still slightly spotty too.

Last time i did this diet i was like you Jaycey, my nails kept breaking and were really weak - this time though i'm feeling the benefits! I have no idea whats different this time though.
