You would definitely think that would be more associated with low protein intake.  Hmm sorry I cannot be more helpful.  Hopefully Ms. DG will moosey on over here.

Its common for very low carb eaters (think counting carbs-atkins as opposed to clean eating lower carb) to have thinning hair and fragile nails.  Its usually because they are avoiding a lot of the fruits and veggies with vital nutrients.

Nails tell you A LOT about your health. Check out this slide show:

I know that the combination of thinning hair and brittle nails mixed with other signs are symtoms of hypothyroidism…. but I doubt that is the case.

You can search possibilites on http://www.webmd.com

OR… you could just be dehydrated! My initial thought was possibly lack of calcium in your diet.
