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)

The itching is probably from parasites, which are dying because of the lack of their preferred carbs. Take an herbal parasite remedy including wormwood and black walnut

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.
