Question Dry Skin

My husband and I have been on Atkins Induction for about a week. We both have developed dry skin. I was wondering if this is a side effect of some kind or maybe just the cold weather. I have even developed dry scalp and this has never been a problem before.

Ferrari- I'm only on day one, but have been on Atkins before and don't recall every getting really dry skin.
Not much help I know, but I wanted to respond because we are same height and weight/goal. Love to keep in touch.
Hope the dry skin improves and good luck on the rest of your induction.

I can't say I've noticed dry skin being on Atkins. In fact, my skin has improved greatly.
Are you drinking plenty of water? Getting lots of fats? Taking supplements?

Being on Atkins greatly improved my skin...is there something else in your environment that could be affecting it? And you are eating enough fat, right?

130star- that sounds great to me.

Kim & DCHound- I think I am getting enough fat. I will reexamine it and I will try to post a menu later. That way if it is not right, I hope someone will tell me. I am taking a prenatal vitamin for my supplement. My doctor put me on them because I hope to start trying to conceive in a couple months. And I have been drinking my water. I guess it is just the heater being on more this year.

Thanks for your replies.
