I talked to a doctor (he's an OB) who said that he can actually tell the type of diet women have when he has to repair episiotomy incisions. The skin tissue of women who eat well sews up very nicely. The skin/tissue of women who eat poorly doesn't hold the stitches as well and the repair is not as nice. He calls the poorly nourished women "potato chips and coke bottom". He'll say to a nurse "Well, here's another potato chips and coke bottom!" He he he So what you are saying about
protein and good nutrition is absolutely true. We are what we eat.
