HCG Diet (Day 16)

No hunger today, except when it was mealtime. I am noticing, however, that my skin is drying out and/or showing signs of stress. I have some spots on my hands that get eczema on them, and I usually can keep it under control by eating a balanced diet that includes healthy fats and supplementing with additional vitamin E. Those spots are coming back with a vengeance, growing and spreading. If it continues to where they're bad enough to ooze (sorry for grossing you out!), I'll have to use vitamin E (which has oil in it). I suspect my lack of consuming fats is playing a large role in my dry skin. The National Institute of Health cautions, "...that low fat diets can result in a significant decrease in vitamin E intake." My normally-on-the-oily-side face is drying out, too.

Interesting. I hardly dropped any weight today (and nothing yesterday), but my body fat decreased for the second day in a row.

Breakfast: 3/4 cup fat-free cottage cheese (120)
Lunch: Chicken (110), 2/3 cup grape tomatoes (18), 1 medium navel orange (80)
