I have been eating paleo for almost one year now. I have always had the healthiest, strongest nails. Never had a problem with them breaking or splitting.
.... until about 3 weeks ago. Now they are breaking left and right! Peeling off in large pieces and it's kind of making me wonder.
Is this a common side effect of paleo? Could it be from not getting enough dairy? Gelatin? Any ideas from you, paleo community?
Edit As requested, here's what I usually eat:
Breakfast - eggs muffins with bacon and veggies and a piece of fruit - usually berries or an orange. Lunch - Salad with chicken, turkey, or beef. Dinner - Chicken, Steak, Beef, Buffalo, Fish, usually with veggies. Occasional paleo cheat - almond butter, dark chocolate.
Veggies include Broccoli, spinach, green beans, butternut squash.
The only dairy I eat is kerrygold butter for cooking or for my bulletproof coffee.
