same headaches...for me it's definitely the lower calorie intake! i've been trying to eat more filling foods (like a banana instead of another fruit, sometimes with 1 tbsp of low fat peanut butter), etc. Good luck!

Basically it explains that certain foods can be triggers for people. Here is an excerpt from the site: "Foods to avoid Top offenders: Cheese (except cottage, farmer's, ricotta and cream), Alcohol (red wine is the worst. Watch out for flavourings (ie vanilla) which may contain alcohol), Caffeine (especially suddenly raising or lowering your intake), Chocolate, Aged and non-fresh meats and liver (ie cold cuts), -(also watch out for products with meat and hydrolyzed protein, such as gravy and soup mixes), Soy beans, Italian green beans, broad bean pods, MSG, Nuts (especially peanuts), Yeast (especially in homemade bread and sourdough), Sauerkraut (and other aged foods) Eat with caution: Salad Dressing, Rennet tablets, Dried fruits (including raisins), Imitation crab, Licorice, Mushrooms, Snails, Salty foods, Rhubarb, Citrus fruits, Ripe avocado, Ripe banana, Yogurt and buttermilk, Fresh raspberries, Red plums, Onions, Worcestershire or teriyaki sauce. Wheat is a trigger for some as well."
If you have increased eating the foods to avoid maybe that is triggering your headaches. Maybe adjusting your diet to decrease or avoid certain foods would help.
Agree with jaquieann if you are I think you just need to need to wait it out until your body gets used to it the only other thing I would suggest is see where your calories are coming and mixing it up with more complex carbs.

I just started and noticed I had a headache every day so far. I think it is because of getting used to the lower calories. I have no health problems and am not the type to get headaches. I made sure I drank lots of water so it cant be that. Last night I ate more than I wanted to and the headache went away. How do I get used to the diet without headaches? Any ideas? Thanks.
