Fingernail Growth Affected by Diet/Exercise?


#1

I've noticed that when I'm doing some serious eating, I have to clip my fingernails 1 - 2 times per week, as opposed to maybe once weekly or even once every 2 weeks when I'm not being such a glutton. It seems plausible that fingernail growth would be affected by diet since fingernails are just proteins (keratin) but I'm not exactly sure. Anyone else notice this/have any input on the matter?

Yeah it makes your hair and nails grow. Specially high protein diets.
