"pretty big" as in healthy and not skin and bones?
How much less were you eating than normal? It could be that because you've only been dealing with extremes your idea of eating 'less' is really eating "too little".
Extreme dieting will cause headaches - being hungry does that. So do toxins, eating junk, but you don't do that, so I'm thinking it's the former - too few calories. You drink your water, right? Any chance you're coming down with a cold? Headaches are usually one of the first symptoms.
Stick with healthy portions of food you know doesn't cause any episodes. Make sure you eat slowly and that a meal lasts a good 20 minutes - this is how long it takes your gut to send the message to your brain that you're not hungry anymore.
If you're happy at 160 and that is a good weight for you then it could simply be a question of monitoring how you feel as you eat - eat until you are no longer hungry, but not until you are stuffed and can't move.
