I have been following a low calorie diet for just over a week and managed to loose around 7 llbs so far. I have been consuming between 900 - 1500 calories a day and aiming (although not always successfully) to not go above 1500.

Mid last week i noticed my lips were getting really dry, tender and sore and today i have come down with a cold and my lips are painfully dry. I drink plenty of water so i know i'm not dehydrated. I believe it could be vitamin deficiency although i'm not sure which vits are related as there is so much conflicting evidence on the internet (damn you google!)

any one else experienced this? Any solutions apart from lip balm!
