    Do any of you get headaches on this diet? I keep waking up with a headache that lasts alllllll day. It's not a dehydration one because I'm drinking a lot of water and all I can think is it's related to this diet somehow? In a normal day I eat:
    B: Special K and soy milk
    a banana
    L: sweet potato with hummus and some veg
    an apple
    D: whole wheat pasta and a roasted veg sauce

    I was going to suggest more water but that's clearly not the case :D

    I note from your start date that you've only been on your diet for a week or so. Could the headaches be something to do with your body adjusting to the new diet/ridding itself of toxins? I seem to recall that when I first started I had a week or two of my body feeling out of kilter, I think I was sweating quite a bit and had stomach cramps and headaches. I put it down to my body de-toxing an it soon went.

    I guess it could be, I'm a vegan so the only reason I've put on so much weight is because I was eating enormous portions and baking pretty much every day so eating cake all day every day! Could it be not having sugar anymore is causing it? I think I might go to the doctor. I did a little googling and other people said it's happened to them on a low cal diet because they've gone too low, not eating enough. It's getting really annoying, painkillers don't seem to work!

    Did you used to have a lot of caffiene before? It may be down to that. Or could the be the change in sugar, or perhaps you aren't eating enough cals? x

    No I never drink tea or coffee or coke. I was thinking it could be the sugar, I was a sugar ADDICT! And now the only sugar I'm having is in fruit. I just had a bigger lunch than I have been having normally and a couple more snacks and it seems to be going away, maybe that's what it is, not enough cals! Bloody diets!
