from reading your food posts, I don't think you eat alot at all. Plus you eat healthfully. I'm no health expert, but I say keep eating. Just talk to you doctor to see if you have thyroid problems or something. Don't worry about it.

How much less were you eating than normal? [B]It could be that because you've only been dealing with extremes your idea of eating 'less' is really eating "too little". [/B]

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.
