I have been having constant headaches the past week or so, I also get migraines but these are just really bad headaches, is this just a normal side effect of restricting your diet? I also feel waves of nauseousness like I'm going to throw up. I'm trying to drink lots of water but it isn't really helping

Yes, headaches, migraines and nausea are all normal side effects to restricting your diet. You're doing the right thing by making sure you drink plenty of water. I have found that these symptoms subside with time, it's just a case of getting through the initial shock to your body...or at least that seems to be the case for me. Hope you feel better really soon

what if I get those headaches when I eat more than 100 calories together?

I also get those! UGHH they totally suck. Typically though if I just eat a stalk of celery or some shredded cabbage I'll feel better. Very few easy to burn calories!

Yes, headaches can defiantly come from restricting your calorie intake. I get hunger headaches all the time, along with headaches related from other things...life in general haha.
Your doing the right thing by keeping your fluid intake up. Drink lots of water. As for nausea, aside from taking anti emetics (anti nausea meds) i am not really sure. Hopefully for body will adapt in time.

Yeah, ive suffered migraines headaches for 5+ years, before and during my ed, i pretty much rely on paracetamol and constant naps to keep me ok.
But yea its usually when you restrict more.

If you don't like taking pain killers for headaches then you can get this "stick" thing called 4head, you rub it on your forehead and it eases headache pain. They really do work! Sometimes I prefer using this then taking paracetamol because it makes me feel nauseous if i take them on an empty stomach
