This is the longest I have gone on low-fat - 20 days. I sort of failed today because I had more sesame seeds than I normally would, but I will compensate by not having overts for a few days.
I am feeling pretty well but I am REALLY bloated. Now that I am out of nori, I'll stop having it - might be my problem.
When I first started doing low-fat back in January, I dropped loads of weight and was down to 123, now I am at like 133! I am eating a lot more, though, so maybe I should either up the exercise or stop eating so many dates, cuz my calorie intake is super high - or maybe I will eat less on the weekends - my job is semi-physical, but partially stationary, too. Argh, I dunno. I want to be lean, again. I was leaner when I was eating high-fat, and my skin was better! MY skin has been dry on my face and I still have a rashy spot.
The itchy 3-year spot on my arm went away in a week of being low-fat (!) but my face got worse. It was going away a bit - maybe I should try eating no bananas and dates - my skin ONLY started doing this when I started eating tons of bananas and dates last year - it has not been improving.
One note on western medicine - I had some red splotches on my inner thighs that would NOT go away and my doc just said it was "skin discoloration" so I went to my dermatologist and it was an external skin yeast, so no wonder my diet was having no effect - I used the cream he gave me for a week, and it worked - then I waited to see if it would come back. It has not. I had the same issue when I was a teen under my arms and my breasts, those never came back either. So sometimes western meds can help. It is a last resort for me, though.
I still don't get this dry itchy area on my cheek - wtf. Only in the last year have I dealt with this.
