Low Calorie Diet Side Effects

People on a low calorie diet may experience mild, temporary side effects as their body adjusts to the diet. Side effects may include:

Dizziness. As you begin losing weight, you lose a lot of water as urine. This lowers blood volume and, hence, blood pressure. To minimize dizziness, avoid changing positions quickly; don’t use whirlpools, saunas or steam baths; and drink plenty of water

Fatigue, Dry Skin, Sensitivity to Cold. These are generally mild and can be treated with extra rest, lotions and creams, and extra clothing.

‘Fruity’ Breath. Ketosis may temporarily give your breath a fruity odor. If the odor bothers you, you may use a mouthwash.

Gallstones. Tell the doctor or counselor of any symptoms or history of gallstones; you may require additional tests or treatment while on the program.

Gastrointestinal Upset. Changing from solid food to a liquid diet may cause constipation or diarrhea. Over-the-counter medications are available for either condition; fiber drinks sucha as Fulfill can help relieve constipation.

Hair Loss.
A small percentage of patients may experience patchy hair loss three to six months into the
diet. Frequently, new hair grows in just as the old hair is lost.

Leg Cramps. Drinking more fluids or increasing electrolytes can often relieve occasional or mild leg cramps. Your physician should evaluate any leg pain you are experiencing.

Menstrual Irregularities. Dietary changes may cause delayed or missed periods. Women who miss a period or have a late period must be tested for pregnancy.

See Dr. Stage about any symptoms that persist or concern you.
