Floating stools are usually harmless unless accompanied by other symptoms, such as diarrhea, foul smell, abdominal pain, fever, or abnormal stool color. Symptomatic "floaters" can indicate infection, inflammation, or malabsorption. Stools... (more)

I work in a restaurant kitchen with no AC. On hot days it can be over 100 and that is without standing in front of the fryer/melter/stove. I then crave weird foods and pour so much salt on my food that you'd think I was insane.

Drop some of the ghee and add carbs in, if you can tolerate them. It's not fatty acids causing your problem. You may not be eating enough.

If it is sunken as in hollow looking, I would say that's as a result of fat loss paired with anti-inflammation. If it's a sagging cheek, go to the doctor. Could be Bell's palsy or even a stroke.
